Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
Was TUPE mentioned at all in the process?
Ok, thanks. If TUPE had applied there would have been no termination of employment and the notice period would not have been triggered. However, as confirmed by the people in charge, this was not a TUPE transfer and as such your employment would have officially terminated when the company ceased trading, meaning your contractual notice period would have also become payable. As the company has been liquidated, you will have to pursue this with the liquidators and they will be responsible for the payment of the amount owed.

well are you only being paid up to the last day you worked?
ok so you will have been paid up for the days you actually worked, but on top you are also due the contractual notice period as discussed, which is a month's pay. Whilst the Insolvency Service can cover part of that (only the statutory part unfortunately), this only happens if the company can not pay its debts to you, hence why you still need to pursue this directly with the liquidators
