UK Employment Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
My employer confirmed that I will be paid my final salary until end of June/2011. In addition they will pay me 6 weeks redundancy payment.
Now, my question is: Do they still need to keep me in employment as a result of 6 weeks' notice period ending on 20/07/2011 (6 weeks from 08/06/2011)? Then, pay me additional 3 weeks salary for the period from 29/06/2011 (termination date) to 20/07/2011 (end of 6 weeks period).
From my contract:
"6-a) Should the Company wish to terminate your employment, for reasons other than gross misconduct, you will be entitled to notice as follows; up to 8 months service 2 weeks, 8 months to 2 years' service 6 weeks; 2-6 years' service 6 weeks; thereafter an extra week's notice will be given for each full year of service up to maximum of 12 week's notice after 12 years' service, such notice to expire at any time."
"2- Your employment will commence on 1 October 2007 (your "Start Date").

"8- On termination of employment you will be paid in lieu of any accrued but unused holiday entitlement, the Company reserves the right to deduct holiday pay form any sums due by it to you."
