Mrs DL arrived home yesterday evening with the news that she has been issued with an 'at risk of redundancy' notice and that the 1-1 meeting was today. Her 30 day consultation period starts as of now!
Mrs DL has worked as a Cash Office Manager/Supervisor for nearly 26 years in a supermarket building that has been frequently altered internally and in ownership ... it is now owned by Morrisons.
Morrisons are now making this position redundant throughout all their stores due to IT improvements and company infrastructure.
This may help Ken increase his millions but now means that the only income in our house is my ill-health pension ... not a lot to look forward to, at least she wasn't told just before Christmas as I was 2 years ago ...thanks for that Ken xx
Hope it all turns out OK.
Any news DL?
Hi Smedders ...
No not really! It's turning into a 'farce'. The 1 - 1 meeting yesterday was a waste of time as no information or package had come from Head Office, as it should have done. Yet another 'initial' meeting is planned for either Monday or Wednesday next week ... it just keeps her guessing! She's not slept the last two nights :¬(
Really hope the meeting goes well this morning DL, is there not a possibility of Mrs. DL moving to another position within the same company?
Thanks pete, I'll pass on your regards. As for 'redeployment' the answer seems to be no and that's for all 658 persons concerned!
@Smedders ... it doesn't work like that ...
For each FULL year of employment you get:
0.5 week’s pay up to your 22nd birthday
1 week’s pay after your 22nd birthday
1.5 weeks’ pay after your 41st birthday
Length of service is capped at 20 years and weekly pay at £450. Years of service or earnings over these amounts aren’t included in the calculation.
The maximum amount of statutory redundancy pay is £13,500.
That's it, unless your company has a redundancy scheme!
On top of your redundancy amount, is 8 weeks pay in lieu of notice - this is taxable - when, in theory, you could be asked to work this period of time!
I know a number of firms that give you 1 months salary for each year worked there, usually up to a maximum of 24 years or 2 years salary as a redundancy payment?
