Hello, my name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. How long have you worked there for?
I have been working at this job for 6 years but was TUPE transferred to a new company in April and it is this new company that have made me redundant.
Notice of termination of employment becomes valid once it has been issued, which in your case it could be on any day, even the day the meeting was held on. So it is possible for the employer to have issued the notice immediately following the meeting on the 25th. However, notice cannot be given retrospectively so if the notice was actually issued on the 30th, but the letter inside was only dated 25th, the actual notice period would start to run from the 30th as that is when it was issued.
As to working until the end of September, the employer may have given you an indication that this may happen, but unfortunately it would not be a legal guarantee. Once notice of termination has been issued that is the time limit which becomes binding.
Hope this clarifies your position? If you could please let me know that would be great, thank you
Yes I understand the situation better now, I will inform my employer that they will have to alter the date of issued date of the notice period.
