Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
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.
Can I just check, has your employment been continuous?
Thank you. I will get back to you with my answer as soon as I can, which will be at some point today. The system will notify you when this happens. Please do not reply in the meantime as this may unnecessarily delay my response. Many thanks.
Don’t worry this is just for an optional phone call. You cannot ask for redundancy because you cannot do your job – that is not what redundancy is for – this only occurs if the employer no longer needs you doing your job, such as because the job disappears or there is a reduction in business.
Assuming they have no alternative positions for you or cannot make changes to help you do your job, then it is a case of either resigning or being dismissed on grounds of ill health, neither of which entitle you to any compensation, apart from you notice period.
I appreciate this may not be the answer you were hoping for but it is the legal position and I hope that it at least clarifies where you stand?
