    Are the company you worked for bust? If not that's illegal - I used to be a manager for Telewest as it was known before Virgin Media - I had to manage 13 engineers through a redundancy period and consultation. They have to give you 90 days notice, either you work them, or you get them as 'Gardening leave'.

    I'd say best bit of advice is to book yourself an appointment with the Citizens Advice mate - They'll be able to give you all your rights, these companies will try and mug you off if they think they can!
    You can't tell someone over the phone, that's for sure...

    Hope you get something sorted and a nice little cheque also :icon_thumright:

    well, your contract will hopefully have a months notice period or longer, which will take you over the 3 years.

    My mrs got made redundant years ago, she was offered another position if she wanted it, she took it as a trial period, then once she had got over the next years service she told them she wanted redundancy, and walked into another job (where i met her).

    Hope it goes well for you mate. What are you qualified in?

    not qualified in much if im honest. i chose the stupid life fron the age of about 13 and didnt wake up to the real world till i was about 20!! So as far as qualifications go, i have nothing to proove. i had about 6 C&G at collage and thats it! Im quite good at most stuff but aint got a bit of paper to say so! Im also not very able any more so no one is going to employ an unqualified cripple!! Great mess.. haha!

    **** happens as they say... im sure someone off here will come up with a super doopa fix, or tell me i should of listened to my mum and dad and done my home work! lol Tell that to the 2 kids looking at me for answers coz mummys sat in the corner crying coz daddy aint got no job!

    I feel for anyone that has been in my boots before!

    if you can put your hand to most things, then something should come up, having stuff on paper aint the be and end all, if your good with hands and keep an open mind and just ask everyone if they need a pair of hands, even part time or something, getting your foot in the door is the first step then try and build from there

    They can't mate - Unless you where on a trial period - Which you obviously weren't as you say 3 years. The Citizens Advice is free and they'll give you the best advice.

    Good luck with it:icon_thumright:

    Nooo, thats awful and such a bad way to tell you. The guys on here are spot on, they have to give 90 days notice for redundancy, they are the rules. Seek advice and and take them to court if need be, you have rights.
    Good luck and hope your wife is ok with the news, worrying times.

    Are you sure about that, I read with the changes in councils that they were giving 90 days notice on redundancy not a month!
