When proposing to dismiss more than 20 employees as redundant at one location, an employer has a legal obligation to collectively consult with a recognised trade union or elected employee representatives. An employer must still comply with this obligation if they enter in to administration, liquidation or become insolvent.

Our employment law experts may be able to bring a claim for a protective award on your behalf, if you believe your employer did not comply with this obligation.

To find out if you are eligible to compensation, contact us at Aticus Law for an assessment of your case.

How can we help?

Where a large-scale redundancy takes place, it is worth checking whether your employer met the necessary legal requirements. Often where companies suddenly shut their doors, staff are let go without any prior notice and you are confident that no consultation took place. Other times, the situation is less obvious. We will assess your position and outline the options available to you.

If there are grounds for a protective award, we will take your case to an employment tribunal. We can represent numerous employees at the same time, streamlining the process for you and your former co-workers. If the company is insolvent, then we will first need to get permission from the administrator.

We will prepare your case and present evidence to the tribunal that proves your employer failed to meet their legal obligations. A ruling in your favour will see that you are awarded up to 90 days’ pay, although this will be capped at a set limit where the company has become insolvent.
