Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, I’m Ben, a UK lawyer and will be dealing with your case today. I may also need to ask some questions to determine the legal position.
When was it put on hold and what reason did they provide for doing this? Also, how long have you worked for your employer?
Thank you for your patience. Leave it with me for now, although please note it is extremely busy at present due to the ongoing situation so there may be a delay in replying, but I will get back to you at some point today. Please do not reply in the meantime. Many thanks
Many thanks for your patience. The ‘pause’ in the redundancy proceedings can actually be indefinite. There is certainly no limit in law which states how long the employer can place it on hold for and technically it can be for as long as required. I appreciate that this uncertainty is not great and you will always be thinking what is around the corner and when it may all re-start, but you have to assume that no news is good news and that if the process has been stopped it means that there is currently no need to proceed with redundancies and you should continue as normal until you hear otherwise.
