Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello my name is***** am a solicitor and i am happy to help you today.
Was this a permanent change to your contractual hours please?
Did you agree to that change and when did it happen? Are you the only person being made redundant please?
Ok sadly if it is a permanent change then the employer can base the redundancy pay on the current weeks pay on the current permanent contract and does not have to take into account the period of time that you worked full time.
Do you have any further questions about this please?
No because it is the 'weeks pay' at the date of termination that is relevant unfortunately. The fact that it hasn't been put in writing doesn't mean that it is not contractual.
You can try to ask them to pay it based on full time hours but you are unlikely to succeed in a Tribunal if they refuse unfortunately.
No problem, all the best with it. I would be very grateful if you would take the time to rate my answer before leaving the site today. Thank you and all the best.
