If you are dismissed from your job or made redundant, you still have certain rights that apply to your changing situation.
For a start, your employer must pay you any outstanding wages you are owed for your labour and provide you with a payslip for that period.
You should also receive pay for any annual leave you have not yet taken and, if you are asked not to work for your notice period, you should be compensated with wages for that time.
The length of your notice period varies depending on the length of time you’ve spent in your job.
If your job ceases to exist, you will likely be offered a redundancy package provided you have worked in that role for two years.
One of the major areas of employment law surrounds wrongful dismissals, but any breach of your employee rights may make you consider getting in touch with an employment law solicitor for help reaching a resolution.
We believe it is vital employees familiarise themselves with employment law to understand their rights, entitlements and obligations.
