I was on holiday when my employer called and informed me

I was on holiday when my employer called and informed me that my job was at risk, my options are to reduce my hours by half or take redundancy. Is this legal? are they allowed to inform me whilst on holiday?They have extended my consultation period and given me a deadline to let them know, if I don't meet the deadline they will assume I'm taking redundancy and will confirm this in writing.There is an alternative role FTC Maternity cover which I can apply from but at the end of that contract my end.
