Yes the contract of employment has a notice period of 3 Calendar Months.
They have changed my job title from Group Technical Director to Engineering Manager. When I explained to the MD I would have rather be made redundant he told me that he would give me one months pay to go. This seems unfair to me because I reckon I would be owed 3 Months Notice + Redundancy at 6 Weeks pay because I am over 45 and all my holiday entitlement which is significantly more than the 1 month that he has offered. The other alternative would be to carry on working there as an Engineering Manager and feel demoralized which I do not want to do.
Do you think I have any chance of bringing a case against them? Or am I best accepting the role and finding a better job over time?
The problem with just leaving is my responsibilities to my family and the length of time it may take to bring the case to a hearing. That is why I would have to find something else pretty quick.
Should I just leave? Or take his offer of 1 month? or give 3 months notice leave and then start the process?
