Employees RIghts when working notice period

Employees who have 2 years continuous service have the right to attend interviews or look for work when working out their notice period

Employees, who are being made redundant, are entitled to ‘reasonable time off’ with pay to find alternative employment / attend interviews / arrange training for future employment.

Time off can be taken during working hours (to be agreed with the employer) within the notice period.

The exact mathematical calculation for working out statutory redundancy pay

To work out the exact statutory pay entitlement of an employee, 3 items of information are needed

The date of birth of the employee

His or her length of service

His or her gross annual salary

The calculation is
A weeks pay (current statutory maximum = 350 pounds a week pay from February 2009)

Multiplied by
0.5 week’s pay for each full year of service where age during year less than 22

weeks pay for each full year of service where age during year is 22 or above, but less than 41

1.5 weeks’ pay for each full year of service where age during year is 41+

No more than the last 20 years service can be taken into account
