who gets to calculate the redundancy money Ben ? and is this 12 day consultation period part of my notice ?
the letter was given on 12/03/15 it advises tat consultation will now commence allowing 12 working days for consultationunder the the redundancyprocess notice of dismissal will be given on 31st march abd i will be asked to leave on that day. my holiday entilementof 8 days will take us through till 10th april after which i will take gardening leave (with pay ) for the lenght of the notice period (2 months ) from 10th April until 10th June when employment is terminated and redundancy will be paid .As a matter of interest my contract states a minimum period of notice for two years service or more is 3months /my salary is paid on 15th of each month 2weeks arrears &2weeks advance
Hi, sorry I was offline by the time you had replied. The consultation period does not form part of your notice period. There is a period of consultation first and if that is unsuccessful and the redundancy must still go ahead then you will be issued with notice of redundancy on 31 March. It is from that date that the notice will apply. If your contract entitles you to 3 months’ notice for your length of service then that is what you can expect to be given from the date the notice is issued to you (31 March).

.Hi Ben, Thank you you have been very helpful , i'm just rather confused that the letter states after i have taken my holidays which is up until the 10th of April ,i will then take gardening leave (with pay ) for the length of the notice period (2months) from the 10thApril until 10th june ,when employment is terminated and your redundancy will be paid .
Ben this is exactly how the letter is written
you are serving your notice from the end of March - the employer can require you to take any outstanding holidays as part of your notice period. This means that when your employment ends they do not have to pay you for these holidays as you would have already taken them. Had they not asked yo to take these holidays it would have meant they owed you for them and would have had to pay you their equivalent on top of the notice period but as you are taking them now before you leave you will not be owed anything extra for them
