Yes and also an opinion from th perspective to proceed legally by filing a case in uk
Ben the query is not about aid or financial support. The query is what and how can we proceed legally against rbs is the question and how do we find the right firm or lawyer to represent us
No legal advice was offered no talks with anyone as representative of the people there are numerous documents where employees have raised pertinent questions The response is tht the employees will have to resign or be asked leave without redundancy because potential buyer offered jobs though not under conditions detailed per se in TUPE. The buyer independently offered some jobs and subsequently to employees who had received redundancies as well. compelling conditions were created for certain employees in a particular biz divisions so tht they were forced to sign separation agreements with much lesser amounts than due as per formula available
The formula offered to some employees was based on abn amro banks formula a large number of employees were paid on this formula before and after the particular biz unit was sold. To be clear business banking portfolio was sold the employees in biz banking got 20% odd amount vs what other employees in retail got As per formula. The story given was because the buyer was offering jobs to biz banking however this was not nder TUPE at all as employees were never part of the formal sale agreement. a number of retail employees who got the correct or full redundancy as per formula also ended up getting jobs with the buyer. The separation agreements were forced upon biz banking employees and were 1 sided worded as they were mutual separation agreements while in reality there was noting mutual in it.
