Hello, my name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. Whether your continuous employment with the company will go back the full 10 years will depend on what your actual employment status was during that time. That does not depend on what you were labelled as by your employer – they could try and say you ere self employed when in fact you were an employee but you would still be an employee even if according to your employer you were self employed. So your status depends on the circumstances of your employment, how you were treated, etc. A useful tool to try and work out your employment status can be accessed here:
So if it is found that your status was that f an employee, even I the employer had labelled you as self employed, then you can get redundancy which would be calculated based on your full continuous service as an employee, which can go back 10 years.
As to how long a claim takes to process, it can take a while but it depends on how many other claims they have, staff availability, whether anything needs to be resolved (e.g. your employment status in this case). So you are looking at several months at least I would say – it is not the quickest of processes so be prepared for that.
