Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. What is the dispute over?
Why do you wish them to withhold the redundancy payment, how will that affect your situation?
you cannot prevent the employer from making the payment. Once the redundancy has been finalised and your employment has terminated, the employer can make the necessary termination payments, such as your wages to date and any redundancy payment due to you. If you have any issues with the procedure they followed or the dismissal itself then that is a separate matter. I am afraid there is simply no way to stop the payment being made and that is entirely at the employer's discretion
such payments should be calculated pro rata depending on how long you have been employed in the relevant month for which the payment is made, unless there is a specific contractual term that states you are liable for the full month's payments regardless of whether you are there or not
