UK Employment Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
Hello, my name is Ben and it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. If you are still within the probationary period when the redundancy is announced and you are served with notice of redundancy then the shorter notice period would apply, which in your case would only be 1 week.
You will only be entitled to the longer notice period if you meet the necessary criteria, in this case having worked for the company for more than 90 days
