    Got some really good news.......

    me and the girls in accounts are gonna be made redundant :D

    So we'll get a decent enough redundancy package.

    It's a shame they did'nt keep the girls on as they've gone though a lot of flak from suppliers wanting cash.

    This turn of events is down to our greedy Accountant trying to save his own skin by making suggestions to get rid of us and save on milk,tea,pies in the canteen etc and he's succeeded good news is he will be gone too.:D

    Id wouldnt accept any less than 1 month per year of service - they may cap this at 6 months, at least thats what we get here *looks around office*

    make sure they go through the 1month consultation period required of redundancy notifcation.

    If they offer you any kind of compromise deal because they haven't gone throught the full redundancy procedures then see an employment lawyer, and make sure your employers pay the bill.

    In fact, don't sign anything until you've seen an employment lawyer.

    don't think we'll get that, I've been here 13yrs, some of the girls have been here 27-32 years.

    just make sure you know what's statutory and what's in the contract.

    And that they follow employment law.

    Good luck

    I know of a good (and reasonably priced) employment lawyer if you want to speak to her.

    I believe statutory redundancy is about £280 for every year you've been there plus notice if applicable. Hopefully you'll get more than statutory though.

    if they've defined a consultation period then they shouldn't talk money until the end of it otherwise you've a got a claim on the basis that the consultation period wasn't one, if you catch my drift

    same goes if they don't have any meetings with you through the consultation period

    I used to dabble in HR, it's all still in my head somewhere

    Just heard from one of the girls at work (I'm on a weeks holiday), apparently they are re-issuing contracts to all 200 production employees changing their hours from 9-5 (1hr kunch) to 8:30 - 5:30 (45mins lunch) without extra pay. She also said they had an accounts manager in that deals with polish workers to meet the new owners. When I get my redundancy pay can I approach any papers/customers with a view to safeguarding these jobs?
