I have been selected for redundancy. My employer has given me a list of scores which they claim are lower than the other members of the department. They will not show me the scores of the other staff members is this allowed.

Hello and thank you for your question, which I will be happy to assist you with. Please let me know how long have you worked there for?
For Ben Jones only
you can ask to see all the scores that were applied in the redundancy exercise and show you how you faired against the other employees. They do not actually have to include details of who received what score - they would be expected to hide any names or other identifiable information to preserve confidentiality. So from that sense they do not have to disclose the scores but as long as they are redacted (blanked out) with just the scores left - you can see them.Important information: As professionals on this site, it is extremely important that our customers rate the service we provided. This only takes a few seconds. I would therefore be grateful if you could please choose one of the following options: OK Service, Good Service or Excellent Service. If you feel the need to leave a lower rating, please reply to me first with any further questions you have. I will be happy to assist further and clarify anything you need me to. Thank you
For Ben Jones only Thank you I just don't see how it can be judged as fair if i cannot compare the scores of named individuals how can I query what I am not allowed to see. Leave it open for an employer to lie.
you won't be entitled to see the other employees' personal scores I'm afraid but can certainly ask for an overall chart to see where you stand when compared to all other employees.
