The period leading up to a possible termination of employment due to redundancy can be a stressful time. I can help by providing practical advice to try to make sure your employer treats you fairly during the selection process.
If the way in which the redundancy process is being conducted is unfair, then I can advise you on how to challenge this with your employer.
If you have already been made redundant, you have 3 months from the date your employment ended to bring a claim to the employment tribunal. Even if you did not challenge your redundancy whilst you were still employed, you may still have the basis of a claim for unfair dismissal at an employment tribunal.
It is not unusual for an employer to try to make an employee redundant when this is not the real reason for the dismissal – which could be that you have fallen out of favour for no particular reason, or that you have one of the protected characteristics under the Equality Act – for example, you might have a condition that is a ‘disability.’ If you feel this is the case, it is very important to take advice as you may also have the basis of a successful discrimination claim.
If you are thinking of issuing a claim or simply want to know your likely prospects of success then I can advise you.
