Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you today.
Have you been offered redundancy?
No, I did speak to the owner and asked about my redundancy, he told me that it would have to come out of his own pocket and then inferred that should I pursue it that I would work back in the shop if they kept it on
What is the location that they are asking you to work at for the cigarette shop? Will it be on the same terms and conditions?
The location is about 4 miles away, I do not drive or have transport, I would nedd to catch 2 buses to get there.
The owners have not given any information about my terms and conditions
Hello are you still researching my question?
Hi yes sorry I had to take a call.
This is clearly a redundancy situation and you are entitled to redundancy pay. This is because the need for a person to perform the role at the location has ceased or diminished. The temployer can only avoid this if you can be offered suitable alternative work. A job at a location that is difficult for you to attend is not a suitable alternative.
You can therefore ask to be made redundant and if you are not then you can claim redundancy pay in the Employment Tribunal.
If you have any further questions please do ask.
