Exploitation of statutory minimum redundancy?
I have just been made redundant from a well paid job after 30+ years of continuous service, inc TUPE transfer a few years ago.
My previous employer applied generous terms for redundancy (one week full pay for every year served, no caps; always have and they still do so today)
The company to which I was transferred have interpreted this as 'honouring' my length of service, but applying a 20yr cap and a salary cap, in line with 'government directives'.
They are using the statutuory minimum redundancy legislation designed by the government to protect employees from unscrupulous employers as a means to short-change me.
Their offer is less than half of the figure I believed I would be entitled to under TUPE legislation.
Can they do this?
