I have read your reply a few days ago however when I tried to reply (via my phone) I have been asked to pay further £44.????
I have since learned that another of my colleagues has been offered a redundancy and will be leaving on 6 July. I have spoken to her (or tried to) about her alleged appeal at the beg of May, her reply to my question how it was going was: I can't discuss it!
I received a reply to my appeal informing me that it will not be heard as I have not provided enough evidence? My point is the company said one thing and now is doing totally the opposite, but doing it on the quiet, without drawing any attention to it, not wanting the larger audience of store's staff effected by the decision to remove HR functions from stores ever finding out that SOME of their colleagues are actually getting the redundancies, which they were told they would not. There is also the evidence that they are prevented from speaking about getting the redundancy so in fact their silence is BOUGHT.
It has been mentioned to me that there are law firms which could take this kind of case on a "no win no fee" basis. I certainly could not afford to pay for the lawyer to represent me on my £16 000 @ year salary, however I feel very strongly that what the company has done is extremely unfair, both to me and many of my colleagues.
What would be your advise how to best proceed with this?
Thank you for your advise and your patience so far
