Hello again, did your old contract entitle you to more than the minimum statutory redundancy payment?
I don't think it clarified that
Under TUPE your old terms automatically transfer to the new employer and there is no time limit on how long they apply for - it is indefinite. However, that is irrelevant in the event of a redundancy situation because if you were not entitled to any enhanced redundancy payments by the old employer, you would only be able to get the minimum statutory amount, which is capped at 20 years service. So even if you had remained with the old employer and not TUPE'd over, you would still only get a maximum of 20 years redundancy, even if you were there for more than that
Ok, thank you for that, that is what I thought, but just wanted to clarify this. You've been most helpful with this.
No problem at all, all the best
