Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
The question is from the employee - myself
I was the securitry manager for my company for 4 years as a security trainer then was asked to go to a different company owened by the same company as the security manager and after 5 months I was told we are making you redundent and it was all over in a fortnight
1 months notice in writing
from both sides
then the usual stuff about gross misconduct etc
I may be wrong, but, should I have been given 90 days notice?
Hello, You are not entitled to an automatic 90 days comsultation period if you are being made redundant. This only applies if there are going to be more than 100 proposed redundancies. If you are the only person to be made redundant or the are only a few of you then there is no requirement for a minimum period of consultation. However, in terms of actual notice period it does not matter whether you are being made redundant or dismissed for another reason - the notice periods will be the same. In your case you will only be entitled to whatever is in your contract, which in this case will be the month's notice.
