Hello, my name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. Unfortunately you are too late to do anything about this now. If you were unfairly dismissed and took redundancy for an unfair reason for example then you only have 3 months from the date of the termination of your employment to challenge this in the employment tribunal. If more than 3 months have passed since you left the company then I am afraid you are too late to make a claim and you will be stature barred from claiming against the employer. So whether the circumstances of the redundancy at the time were unfair or not is now irrelevant as you would not be able to submit a claim any longer.
Hope this clarifies your position? If you could please let me know that would be great, thank you
I thought there was a law about the position being redundant and it had to be so many years (2 springs to mind) before the position could be revived again. It seems to me that it is one person doing the job I used to do and not the admin pool.
No there is no such law about a minimum period of time before a position can be re-introduced. The only time limit is the 3 months a redundant employee has to claim, after that time they cannot claim even if the redundancy was originally a sham or unfair. So technically an employer can try and argue there is a redundancy, make someone redundant then after more than 3 months take on someone to do exactly the same job and the redundant employee would no longer be able to challenge it
you are welcome, all the best
