I am really looking for some help if possible please? The last week for me has not been a great one in that I received the old "heave ho" and was told that due to financial issues within my organisation, my post was being made redundant!! I have been there for a number of years - I begun originally in Oct 99 and moved to their "sister company" in July 02 when they became their own entity, however, I don't remember receiving a new contract. The issue here is that I have been told that the old policy for redundancy entitles me to 1 months salary for every year I have been with them OR the new redundancy policy which is 1 weeks salary for every year I have been there - as you will see, the difference is huge! The trouble is that I am unable to find the original contract I received back in 99'. Does anyone know my rights here and where I may legally stand?
Also, as I have RRMS, when applying for a new job / registering with agencies, do i have to "consider myself to have a disability" even if i am currently "fully abled" ?
Any advice anyone is able to give me will be greatfully appreciated as the way I have been treated over the whole redundancy saga I feel is disgusting and I want to ensure that my company do not get off lightly and have a "bumpy ride!".
Thanks in advance.
