Could you please confirm for how many years you have worked with the current employer?
The statutory redundancy notice periods are:
at least one week’s notice if employed between one month and 2 years
one week’s notice for each year if employed between 2 and 12 years
12 weeks’ notice if employed for 12 years or more
Thank you for your reply, I will go through it and will get back to you with my answer shortly.
Your employer need to tell you about your notice period when they tell you they’re making you redundant. Your notice period only starts when your employer says you'll be made redundant and gives your last date of employment. Your notice period will start from the notice is given - notice that you have been made redundant and what will be your last date of work.
if you worked for 10 years, then your statutory notice period should be of 10 weeks.
Yes, there is no requirement to make everyone redundant and give notice at the same time.
Every one will have different redundancy notice period depending on the length of their service.
As explained above, there is no requirement to give notice to all employees on the same date.
I have given you answer for your redundancy notice requirement , which is 10 weeks.
Notice requirement and redundancy and redundancy pay is different for all depending on the length of each employee service. There is no discrimination on the part of employer if all the employees are finishing on the same date.
Thank you for using Just Answer. Best wishes.
