Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Good afternoon. Welcome to just answer. I am a solicitor and reviewing your question now for you.
Your understanding is right. If your contract does not mention the redundancy package that others have expressly stated in the contract you would still be entitled to statutory redundancy pay. Whether you can claim that the difference is discriminatory will really depend on the reasons Disney is giving for the difference. If it’s clearly due to the different contracts due to when they were concluded then I cannot see a claim for wanting the same as those whose contracts with fox provided an enhanced package would succeed. If on being tuped Disney had revised all contracts to unify provisions for all employees then others getting a higher package would be unfair and if that is what has happened you should file your formal grievance. Any clarification please do not hesitate to send your follow up question, I am glad to assist further. All the best.
Hi, I would not know if the company has a redundancy policy however if you have worked for a company for at least 2 years then you will be entitled to redundancy pay if the employer decides to make your role redundant following restructure.
Good morning. You are very welcome. With TUPE the principle is that TUPEd employess can not be offered less favourable terms, they move with the terms that they had in their contracts of employment. However conversely, the new employer can indeed offer more favourable conditions if their rfesources allow anf it appears this was offered with the cut off date being the only condition. So yes they could pay enhanced redundancy up to 20 September and after that cut off date there wouldn't be an obligation to pay above statutory redundancy pay. I hope this helps
