Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today. Is the employer happy for you to do that?
Sorry my connection dropped earlier. You say she expects you to hand in your notice, if you do so will you be resigning rather than being made redundant? Also if you are made redundant are you entitled to a redundancy payment?
Thank you. What you are proposing to do is entirely feasible but here are several considerations you must take into account first:• Make sure you are not resigning but that you are actually being made redundant because you do not get a redundancy payment on resignation• The official definition of redundancy is where the employer requires fewer employees than it has to do a particular job. If you were ending your employment and then being re-employed in the same job as an employer then the redundancy would be questioned. However, if you are going to be self employed then you are no longer an employee so it would look better. Therefore, make sure you are genuinely self employed and that you do not continue working there as an employee instead.
