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.
What are you ideally hoping for, so that I can best advise?
Thank you. They should give you enough information about the junior role to allow you to make a reasoned decision about it. You should also be given enough about the redundancy package to decide if that is the route you want to pursue,
However, in all honesty, there is no specific information, details or topics that must be discussed by law – it is down to the employer to decide as long as they are undertaking a fair procedure and you are given sufficient information to be well informed about your options and choices.
Hi, do you have any specific concerns about the letter?
In terms of negotiating on the redundancy offer, that will only really be possible in the event there is a potential for an unfair dismissal, where the employer may negotiate a settlement with you in return for you not agreeing to claim.
Hello, I see you have read my response to your query. Could you please let me know if it has answered your original question? You can simply reply on here with a quick ‘Yes, thanks’ and I won’t bother you again. Thank you
Sometimes there won’t be a role and redundancy will be inevitable but you still have the right to propose any possible option and solutions or pick holes in their current proposals, that is why you should still use the consultation meetings to your advantage as much as you can.
Does this clarify things a bit more for you?
All the best
