Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, is the 2 months notice in addition to the redundancy pay you will get? Also are the unused holidays only relating to the current holiday year?
Hello, sorry I was offline by the time you had replied. When it comes to termination payments, your redundancy pay should be tax free up to £30k. Your notice period is separate to that and as it is a contractual payment it will be taxable as normal. If you have outstanding holidays for the current holiday year then you are entitled to get paid for these as part pf your termination payment. However, what could also happen is that the employer asks you to work your notice period and they force you to take your holidays during the notice period, which means that you only get paid once for these, i.e. you will get paid your holidays for the days you take them but you will not get notice pay for them on top of that. To do this the employer will be required to give you specific notice as determined in law and that would depend on how many days holiday they want you to take at a time.
This is your basic legal position. I have more detailed advice for you in terms of the notice periods they are required to give you to take your holidays, which I wish to discuss so please take a second to leave a positive rating for the service so far (by selecting 3, 4 or 5 stars) and I can continue with that and answer any further questions you may have. Don’t worry, there is no extra cost and leaving a rating will not close the question and we can continue this discussion. Thank you
