Employees who are at risk of redundancy following Bristol Energy and its holding firm, Together Energy, going into administration could receive up to 90 days’ pay, in addition to any redundancy payments.

Your employer should have consulted with either a recognised trade union or employee representatives prior to your redundancy and followed the correct procedures. This rule still applies in cases of administration.
