Following the unfortunate news of Pipeline Engineering & Supply Co going into administration, we understand that employees may be at risk of redundancy. Employees who have been made redundant from Pipeline Engineering & Supply Co 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 elected employee representatives prior to your redundancy and followed the correct procedures. This means that a formal consultation should have happened with notice of 30 days (if 20-99 employees were made redundant) or 45 days (if over 100 employees were made redundant) prior to your redundancy . This rule still applies in cases of administration.
A protective award claim is separate from the usual redundancy claim. So, you could receive two separate payouts on your redundancy.
You do not need two years service to pursue this claim.
A protective award can award you compensation of up to 90 days’ pay if you were not consulted with adequately prior to your redundancy.
In the event that your employer cannot pay your award, do not worry, the Government guarantees 8 weeks’ pay, capped at £571 per week less any arrears of pay you may have received from the Redundancy Payments Office. So in this situation, you could receive up to £4,568.
If you have been made redundant, or believe that you are about to be made redundant without the proper procedures being followed and notice periods, then please get in touch with us today by filling out your details on the form at the bottom of the page.
As soon as you fill in your details, we will get in touch with you as soon as possible to assess your situation. You will not be charged for this consultation and are not required to proceed. This is just to assess your situation.
Please make sure that you do it as soon as possible for the best chance to protect your legal rights, as there are strict deadlines for commencing a claim.
