Hello, not sure if you saw my initial query above - How long have the staff each worked there for?
Thank you. The organisation will be liable for paying redundancy to its redundant staff just as if they were employed by a ‘normal’ company. In the first instance, it is the organisation itself which will be responsible for paying these payments, from the funds or assets it has. If there is not enough to pay them from the remaining funds/assets then the trustees will only be personally liable if they had been guilty of wrongful trading, for example continued to trade when it was clear the organisation cannot avoid closing down or becoming insolvent. In other word, if through their negligence the organisation had closed down or incurred further debts, then they can be held personally liable for its debts. However, if the trustees had done nothing wrong and continued with the normal operation of the organisation and had not been negligent, then they would not be personally liable and the employees may have to consider trying to claim what is left from the government.
