Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today. If you are genuinely self employed then you are correct, because redundancy is only payable to employees and if your employment status is different, such as self employed, a contractor, an agency worker, a volunteer, etc you do not get the legal entitlement to a redundancy payment. Maybe when you changed from an employee to self employed you could have argued for redundancy because your employment position was being closed and it could have amounted to a redundancy, but it is way too late to challenge that now as there are strict time limits to make a redundancy claim, which would have passed years ago.
I'm sorry if this is not necessarily the answer you were hoping for, however I do have a duty to be honest and explain the law as it actually stands. This does mean delivering bad news from time to time. I hope you understand and would be happy to provide any further clarification if needed. If you are still satisfied with the level of service you have received I would be grateful if you could please take a second to leave a positive rating by selecting 3, 4 or 5 starts at the top of the page.
