My company is being restructured and I am at risk of redundancy due to outsourcing. I can't be bumped and I am the only person in my company with my skillset. They still want my skillset from the outsource company.
Can I be made redundant due to outsourcing?
Shouldn't I instead be made redundant due to the restructuring (or whatever ETO reason for TUPE) which would then leave them free to outsource?
Over 11 years
My company have not even asked them yet even though I am now facing my 2nd individual consultation meeting. I have asked then several times to establish my TUPE position and they just say they think they have an ETO reason to cover any TUPE
They seem to think that because they are restructuring the company due to economic reasons that they can make me redundant because they want to outsource my job.
I don't know what I want. I would prefer they didn't outsource my role at all but failing that I would want to be TUPEd over first. I didn't think they could make me redundant and avoid their TUPE obligations
I am the only employee left who hasn't taken voluntary redundancy in my department. My role is unique though.
Does restructuring constitute a valid ETO reason for them not to TUPE me over first?
If the new company don't want me OR they don't even ask them if they want me and I am made redundant with redundancy pay by my current employer anyway. Is that legal? Or can I claim unfair dismissal?
