Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
So from what they are saying, it does not look like they are disputing that you are owed 3 months notice, but that they cannot pay you right now and would need to settle it over period of time?
Hi yes I am but as this is not our main job, we only help out when we have spare capacity.
Going back to your query, it is absolutely not correct that they only need to pay you for a week if you are made redundant. Redundancy is one of several fair reasons for dismissal that an employer can use. All are treated the same (except for gross misconduct, which attracts no notice pay). Therefore, whether you are being dismissed for redundancy, capability, some other substantial reason, you are due to be paid the greater of the statutory notice period or what is in your contract. In your case it would have to be the 3 months.
Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
Hello again and thank you for your further queries, which I will be more than happy to answer. Whether you call it employment contract or employment agreement, the rights are still the same. They can’t just call it an agreement and say that it has no contractually binding effect.
As to writing a letter unfortunately that is not a service we can offer as we are just a chat platform and cannot officially represent you (which would be the case if you wanted us to write a letter on your behalf). Sorry
Hi yes that is fine for now
I trust that everything has now been dealt with to your satisfaction and your original question has been resolved. If you have any further queries about it, please do not hesitate to get back to me on here. In the meantime, I wish you all the best.
