He should e paid redundancy
Here is the link that tell him what he should be getting
6 weeks pay for redudancy
2 weeks notice
plus he is entitled to any unpaid annual leave.
If they say not then he should sue for unfair dismissal.
But from what you have told me it is a redundancy but they may not want to pay correctly.
