Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is*****’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.
How long did you work there ?
Hi there, my colleague has asked me to assist with this as it is more my area of law. First of all you cannot really challenge the redundancy it’s self as you need to have at least 2 years’ service to claim for unfair dismissal. You mentioned possible discrimination but have yourself admitted that it will likely be difficult to prove.
In terms of the PILON, that is down to the employer I’m afraid. They may have considered offering it to you to start with but until you have been issued with formal notice of redundancy they are allowed to change their mind. They could therefore expect you to either work your notice period or be placed on garden leave for its duration and you have to accept tat if you wanted to get paid for that period. Sadly, the only way around it is to negotiate with the employer but it is entirely down to them whether they go down the PILON or other routes.
