Unless you have been dismissed for gross misconduct, you will be asked to either serve your notice period or to be paid in lieu of your notice. The minimum notice you must be given is one week for each year of service capped at 12 weeks, or the period set out in your contract, if that is greater.
You will also be entitled to be paid in lieu of any accrued holiday entitlement that you have accrued but not been able to take.
If you have been made redundant, then provided you have at least two years’ service, you will be entitled to a statutory redundancy payment, which is calculated against a formula, based on age and length of service. There may also be a right to an enhanced redundancy payment if your employer has such a scheme in place.
If you feel that your dismissal was unfair you should take advice from Gotelee’s employment solicitors as you may be entitled to claim additional compensation.
