Hello and welcome to Just Answer, does he agree that the role is redundant, i.e. that the need for someone to do the job has ceased or diminshed?
Yes, it is clear that there is very little work for an auto cad technician to do for the company. But there will still be the need for someone to do a small amount of auto cad drawings as the partners cannot work computer software so need some one to transfer their drawings from boards onto a PC.
Unfortunately it does seem that your husband's good nature has and is being taken advantage of. It is correct that the redundancy payment would be based on a four day week if he has been working 4 days since June unfortunately.
A redundancy payment should be paid promptly at the end of the notice period but the reality is that if they are paying it in installments over 6 months it would take longer for your husband to enforce his right to a prompt payment than 6 months!
The redundancy payment should still be tax free but your husband would be wise to contact HMRC just to clarify the position as sometimes this can depend on personal cricumstances and other employment.
If you have any further questions please ask. If i have answered your question I would be grateful if you would take the time to rate my answer. Thank you and all the best.
Hello is there anything further you would like to know about this?
