What about the redundancy entitlement?
Does your contract say you can be asked to change workplace?
ok so the employer accepts that redundancy is likely to follow and you also have a defined redundancy entitlement in your contract which you would get if you were to be made redundant - are you worried you may not get this entitlement?
ok well when you enter a redundancy procedure, the employer will have a duty to consult with you and try to offer you any suitable alternative employment that may exist. If none is available, they may proceed with making you redundant. If that happens then you will be entitled to the following:1. Your contractual notice pay2. Any accrued holidays to that date3. Redundancy pay - this must be at least the statutory minimum (https://www.gov.uk/calculate-your-redundancy-pay) or if your contract allows you to receive an enhanced redundancy payment, then it would be that one
that depends if the contract allows the employer to terminate your employment by paying you in lieu of notice - if it does, they can technically terminate your employment immediately and pay you for the notice equivalent, then you may miss out on the bonus, but if you remain employed and it takes you to the time when the bonus is payable, then assuming you satisfy the eligibility criteria it should be paid to you
in that case they could legally terminate your employment as soon as the redundancy process is finished and not require you to work through your notice period. If the bonus is payable at a later date and you need to be in employment when you receive it then you may miss out unfortunately
Please let me know if this has answered your original question or if you need me to clarify anything else for you in relation to this? Thanks
does it say your employment can be terminated by paying you in lieu of notice?
ok so they can terminate it at any point once the redundancy is confirmed but if that happens you will be entitled to the full notice period, the full redundancy entitlement but will not be entitled to any holidays for the notice period or the pensions contributions - it is possible to negotiate these with the employer but by law they are not obliged to pay them
had there been no payment in lieu of notice clause they would have had to pay them as they would have been terminating your employment in breach of contract
but with such a clause, they can terminate your employment immediately by paying you the notice equivalent and they are not liable to pay you any benefit or holidays for the notice period - only your normal pay that would cover it
You are welcome
