This may sound a stupid question.


But I've been tipped off by a reliable source at work they are going to outsource my department/function shortly. I already thought this was going to happen though.


We are a small IT team of two people, and in November we had an audit which revealed some (allegedly) appalling spending decisions over the years.


However I only started in August 2014, so legally I am entitled to no redundancy pay. Is there any benefit on waiting for the official announcement or just find a new job and resign as normal?


I have also looked at TUPE etc, they would probably transfer me then make me redundant straight away, especially as the new IT supplier is based 100 miles away. Even if it was unfair, the 2 year rule excludes me from taking it to a tribunal etc.

I think that's a personal choice for you - would you want to travel 100 miles if they did keep you on?


The only potential benefit is that they may opt to pay you in lieu of notice rather than requiring you to work your notice period, plus you would have an income, possibly for longer. Of course, as part of the due diligence process, the transferee might insist that any employees with under two years service be dismissed so they don't inherit the associated costs, in which case you could be without a job sooner than expected.


Given your length of service, if you can obtain a job in the meantime, that may be a more viable option for you. But it's entirely a matter of personal choice, based on the risks of either course of action.
