I am french, living in France and working there for a uk company since 5 years.
Is the UK company saying they will pay you a redundancy payment given your length of service?
PierreThat sounds like they intend to pay you notice, any holiday pay and a redundancy payment. If you tell me your salary and age, I can tell you how much you will be paid?
But do you think it is legal since I would have to be under the french law.
Does your employment contract say that the relationship is subject to English law?
OK. So, the entitlement to a redundancy payment is enshrined in English law. If you have worked for a company for 2 years or more and your position becomes redundant, you are entitled to receive a redundancy payment from the company. It does not matter where you are working or whether you have ever lived in the UK. It does also sound like the company intends to honour the payment. John
