Customer Question

I have recently been told verbally I have no employment as of the 31st March. I was tuped from one solicitors to another so currently am now serving my forth year as a criminal secretary. The firm I am currently working for are tuping lawyers but have advised, again verbally, there will be no secretarial supported required by the novation contract. I am to give one month notice should I leave my current employment but cannot confirm from my contract the notice is returnable on the same basis due to redundancy.

Firstly am I entitled to redundancy and secondly should there be written notice to me? If so what is the statutory redundancy and how much notice should I expect. I am currently enrolled with employment agencies to seek a future appointment but my time is running out?! I do not want to prejudice any position I could potentially be in.

Are you able to offer me any assistance or advice.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I am happy to help you today. Do you have 4 year's continuous service? and what does your contract say about notice from the employer on termination?

Customer: I have 3 years 3 months continuous service and there is no mention in my contract of any notice period for redundancy on their part.

Hi thanks for rating my answer. Yes you should be given notice of a month and paid statutory redundancy which you can calculate using the following website https://www.gov.uk/calculate-your-redundancy-pay

Your employer should also consult with you and offer you alternative work (if relevant).

If you have any further questions please do ask.
