Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Just short of 2 years. My anniversary is 8 July.
In my 'at risk' meeting with HR I was told that as the notice period covers my anniversary I will get 2 years redundancy in line with policy, but at my first consultation meeting then said I won't as the end date is 30 June and I will be paid in lieu of notice.
80% of the team have been put at risk, at my consultation meeting I was shown the new structure chart, then called back in half an hour after it ended as I had been talked through the wrong one. There are no role profiles available for the roles that have been created and they are saying this process ends on 30 June.
Clause 11 of my contract states:
11. Payment in lieu of notice
Where notice is served to terminate your employment, whether by the Company or you, the Company may terminate your employment at any time with immediate effect by:
(a) making a payment in lieu of the notice period, or remainder of the notice period, equivalent to your salary at the date of the termination, and
(b) continuing to provide all the benefits you were entitled to until the date which notice would otherwise have expired, or paying you compensation in respect of any of those benefits equivalent to the cost of the company providing the benefit over the relevant period.
