Anyone in the know regarding the following?

 

The company I have been at for 12 years, is going tits up/pop!

 

Adminisrtators have been called in, and I expect my letter of redundancy any day!  :weep:

 

As many of you will know, I have worked part time, for the past year, as with young child and single parent.  Too seek a new job, would invariably mean full time, which I cannot allow myself to do!

 

So I'm going to enquire about full time benefit until such a time that sprog is off to juniors at least, cos I hate government handouts. I like to earn my keep. 

 

Anyway, number crunching, does anyone out there know what a single parent can expect to receive, having lost their job, not being sacked?

Just dug me employment law books out mate.  What it boils down to is:

 

The onus is on you to make the claim to your employer for a redundancy payment.

 

There are then 3 separate bands for how much you're entitled to depending on your age when working for them.  For each year you worked for them between the ages of 18-21 you're entitled to half a weeks pay, 22-40 is 1 weeks pay and 41-65 is 1 and a half weeks pay.

 

If you're on a variable wage, a week's pay is calculated to be the average hourly rate over the past 12 weeks.

 

 

Good luck mate!

Sorry that you're losing your job, mate.

BUT, you know that film I was talking about, A Night at the Roxbury? The brothers QUIT their jobs, and things are looking bleak, but in the end, it all works out and they get just what they've always wanted. Point being that you might hit the jackpot with your next job O0

Thats bad news lanky, but try and look at the positives and just think of all the extra time you will be spending with Ben. There are some companies that go out of their way to employ single parents on a part time basis and do everything they can to help, I believe Ikea are one.

Our firm has just been taken over and we were all guaranteed that we wouldn't lose our jobs.

 

Today 9 were made redundant. I'm alright luckily and have just been promoted but my best friend there has lost hers, absolutely gutted. I know redundancies are expected when there's a takeover, but why go to so much effort to guarantee there wouldn't be? They sent the new HR Director to have 1 on 1 meetings with every single person at the firm (about 260) and we were all told its good news and we are the future. What's the fucking point when you just go back on your words?

 

This is nout to do with the economic climate either i'm told, just rash decisions. Cunts.

Hope things work out ok Ally!

 

It's spooky that you revitalised this thread right now!

 

MJ and I were chatting, not an hour previous, about how I can best invest the redundancy pay that I recieved yesterday,(2 grands)  and, after 15 months fannyon, on the same day, I also recieived a letter advising me Ben shall recieve 4 grands a year till he's 18, from Kat's pension.

 

We can already live on child tax, child support and income support, so this is a lovely nest egg. I am now a full time parent till primary school kicks off!  :shifty:

My dads work is in the crap, JCB, lots of redundancies and early retirement.

All of the uncles work there too so could be a very shit time for the family soon.

 

People in construction and the like are well and truly fucked at the minute according to the stuff I'm hearing. They haven't had it easy for the last year to six months anyway.
