  • I love direct gov

    Ive been having alook at direct gov due to redundancy issues and I never knew how useful it is.I havnt even looked into it re my own business but I am actually looking forward to it in the future.
    Does anybody else find it useful?

    Yep it's a pretty good site, sometimes a bit tricky to find what you want so I tend to bookmark the pages that I've found so I don't have to search for ages next time I go on. The job search bit is good and it was amazingly useful when hubby started talking about going to uni (a few years away yet) as there's loads of info about funding which isn't widely publicised

      I agree, I've been using it a lot recently to find out about student finance. It is a bit of a minefield though as Natty Netty has said, so best to bookmark your searches!

        Hmmm, Ive had a chat with relatives that have been made redundant and Id love to believe what they say as it contradicts what has happened at work, ie they say Im entitled to 30 notice of being told that Ive been made redundant, I was given 3 days notice.
        But the direct gov site says the opposite which is similar to what has happened.
        Id love to believe my relatives, but I tend to think a government website is bound to be more accurate.Im soo confused

          3 days sounds correct..

          You basically have no rights if you have been with a company less than something like 2yrs..

          Also the contract you signed may of removed those right too..

          Most companies only employ you on a 3 month temp contract that needs to be extended but this is to give support to the company to stop after 3 months and get around notice periods and entitlements


          This works out what your intitled too:

          You are not eligble for a statutory redundancy payment if you have less than two years of service with your employer.

            Normally they can give you say 3 days notice but have to pay you for the 30 days plus redundancy but it depends how long you have been there as this is also taken into account. The best thing is to check with your CAB as they can tell you specifically what you are entitled to as different rules apply to each case.

              Found the bit :

              Giving notice


              You or your employer can give notice on any day. Normally the notice period will run from the start of the following day. For example, if you give notice on a Monday, your notice period will start on the Tuesday and will finish at the end of Monday.
              You should read your contract of employment. If it lays out a different process for when notice can be given or when your notice period will run, you and your employer must follow the agreement in your contract.



              There are some forms of dismissal that mean you and your employer don’t have to give or receive notice.

              Basically it whatever the contract says that you signed

                Contract says nothing about redundancy but it does say 4 weeks notice if employment ends.

                But my issue now is that he didnt talk to any of us to see how the situation could be resolved.
