What to do when you’ve been made redundant but the company is insolvent

Published: 26/07/2020 By Jane Price

Staff have certain rights when being made redundant. These include getting redundancy pay and a paid notice period.

Normally the employer would pay redundancy. However, when a company is insolvent staff can apply to the Insolvency Service (a government agency) for redundancy instead.

What can be applied for depends on many circumstances and staff maybe eligible for more than one type of payment.

Further information about how much can be claimed and the deductions that will be made is available on GOV.UK
