Found 9th Jun 2009
Dear all. I have tried googling this but not having much luck. Most information sites seem to give me the answer to every question bar this one and wondered if anyone on here could help me with the answer/advice.
My wife is expecting to be officially told that she is being made redundant on Thursday. She will be given one months notice. She has been with the company 1 year and 11 months.
Employeees can claim redundancy pay if they have been with an employer 2 years.
Now my other half will have been with them for under 2 years when she receives the notice but over 2 years by the time she actually finishes. Will she be able to claim the pay? Does the 2 years apply from the date you receive your official notification or last date of employment?
Any help or advice would be gratefully received and obviously rep left.
Thankyou
Andy

will do that. Thankyou.

Well it sounds like the company are getting rid of your wife before they would have to pay her any money.

Thankyou all for the advice. I found the Acas website via the times link and called them.
For anyone else in this situation if you are working in lieu of your notice this time does not count and if you are not, then this time does count. Fortunately for us, my mrs is not working in lieu and is entitled to the payout.

This is a great site for employment advice acas.org.uk/ind…953 with a helpline number 08457 47 47 47
My brain hurts.

Glad you sorted that out - and that your wife is entitled to compensation.

Good luck to her on finding a new job too - I believe she can't find a new job until she is made redundant - or she may lose the right to claim it! Just be cautious!

Thankyou Butterflies. Much appreciated.

A friend was made redundant but like your OH she hadd to work her months notice but found out from acas that they had to give her time off to attend interviews would be worth checking this is still the case as was a couple of yeaars ago. Hope everything will be ok

she isnt entitled to redundancey this is because her notice pay is being paid off apposed to worked, so her p45 will say thursdays date!
she is entitled to her pay for her work upto and including date of redundancy any holday owed and notice pay(i was in same situation in november!)
Contact Redundancy Payments Office(they deal with claims)

Also unless you are at risk of redundancy you cant have time off,
if you did take a job you loose all redundancy if you get the job b4 redundancy date!( you are classed as leaving)

also if she dont find a job call the job center asap as delaying it will affect your redundancey payment, they will reduce it! (the government wont pay out twice, and rules on redundancey say you should claim all other benifits possible befor completeing your RP1 Froum(redundancey form)

you're entitled to 2/5 of your working weekly hours to attend job interviews or job centres. I know this as I was told in March that I was going to be redundant in April so spoke to ACAS who were very helpful

I don't think they will be too much bothered if she gets it or not.....................................

0.5 week’s pay for each year worked if you are aged under 22 in that year

1.0 week’s pay for each year worked if you are aged 22 or more, but younger than 41

1.5 week's pay for each year worked if you are 41 or older

And there are limits to those figures like maximum of 20 years can be claimed and a maximum of £350 a week.. so the most anyone can get will be just under £9000.. not that that will be of interest to the OP .. good luck with the job hunting BTW
