Just a quick question regarding an issue where i work. There are numerous people who are employed where i am at and have been members of permanent staff for varying degrees between 12 and 18 months. Prior to this they were all employed on the same site, doing the same job by an employment agency, some for as long as 5 years.
The question is, some of these are being made redundent and are led to believe that because they have only been permanent employees for around 12-18 months, they are entitled to no redundancy. Even though they have been here for upwards of 6 years.
Can this be correct or can any one offer any advice?
