Customer Question

I am a Key Account Manager (sales rep) and I have been advised that my position is redundant because the state budget (as a whole ) was not being met. I was advised without notice and provided a Deed of Termination and Release. I handed over all company property but refused to sign the Deed.
JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: I work in Qld but Head Office is in NSW and hence the Deed is governed by NWS law.
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: I received the Deed at 4.00 o'clock and was driven home by the manager with my personal goods from the office. Sorry the answer is no.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: The Company used the same process on an employee roughly 12 months ago. Also I have emails showing intent to stimulate business activity but the national managers have not assisted me in following though with my plans.

Good Evening.

If your position is no longer available and it is a legitimate redundancy then you have no claim but you are entitled to be paid out.

How long have you been with them?
