I was informed on Friday I’m being made redundant.
Everyone now has the right to individual consultation, and to appeal, but I don’t really see the point, as they’re not going to change their minds anyway.
Trouble is, I don’t drive, and they want me to go to bl**dy head office in Aldershot on Wednesday (2 hours each way by train) for this “consultation”.
I’m not going to contest my redundancy, although I do plan just to check they were aware of my illness, and that they did consider the impact of this on both my performance and flexibility (two of the criteria they used to decide who stays and who goes).
But that was it, really. I don’t feel I want/need a four-hour round-trip about it; I’ll be exhausted!
I know it’s “good” that they’re offering face-to-face, but would you travel two hours to go to this? When you already know you’ll be leaving anyway?
