My employer of 24 years has discussed redundancy with me and

Customer Question

hi,
my employer of 24 years has discussed redundancy with me and has made 3 employees redundant last month , so the complete compliment of staff is 2
I have no formal contract and have been working 5, 4 and briefly 2 days per week -during last recession , last few years my employment was 3 days per week
now my employer proposed to me to work 1 day per week one, 3 days week two etc.
as I have approached him as why not work 2 days per week there was visible discomfort and I got some woolly answer that as he needs me to finish with the last contract I could leave if employed for 2 days/week ,but is not the case with the above arrangement
I suspect that my employer is trying to 'do me' out of redundancy entitlement
please could you advise me
Thank you in anticipation
Sonja

Hello, my name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to be able to assist with your question today. Please let me know what specific queries do you have about this?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I would like to know what difference is there between agreeing to work alternate weeks 1day instead of 3

and agreeing to work 2 days on regular basis ?

also, I assume any agreement will have to be for a 12 week duration only

as not to affect my statutory redundancy pay

is this correct ?
