At UnionLine, we understand that redundancy can be devastating. You may be suddenly confronted with a lot of things to think about, at what is already a difficult time for you.
Perhaps you’ve been in the same job for 40 years and this had become a way of life for you. Maybe you haven’t been able to find another job since your redundancy and you’re worried about how your bills are going to be paid.
You may believe that you were not paid the correct redundancy pay and that you didn’t receive the correct final payments at the end of your employment. You may also believe that you were unfairly dismissed and wonder whether there’s anything you can do about this.
If you’ve been dismissed by reason of redundancy or if you are at risk of redundancy, UnionLine can advise on what employment law rights you have.
Simply call us on 0300 333 0303 and press option 2 to speak to one of our experienced employment advisors.
Bringing an employment tribunal claim
Our employment team is on hand to offer you support and advice if you have been made redundant. Union members may also be able to bring a claim in the Employment Tribunal through UnionLine, and our legal advisors will assess the merits of your potential claim.
Claims for unfair dismissal and a contractual redundancy payment must be brought in the Employment Tribunal within three months of your effective date of termination. Claims for a statutory redundancy payment must be brought within six months of your effective date of termination.
You must also comply with the ACAS Early Conciliation procedure, which will affect the time limits for your claims. Given the tight time limits and procedural requirements, it is vital that you do not delay in contacting us.
