ASK THE EXPERT – “I was made redundant 8 weeks ago but I still haven’t received my redundancy pay, what should I do?”

Nikki Sharpe

Each week we are taking questions from our clients and contacts.  This week Mr Wilson from Sheffield asks

“I was made redundant 8 weeks ago but I still haven’t received my redundancy pay, what should I do?”

Our Employment Solicitor Nikki Sharpe answers

“The first thing I would advise you to do would be to contact your employer in writing.  Unless you and your employer have agreed a certain date for payment of your redundancy pay, you should have received this no later than your last day at work.  This payment should have been made in the usual way that you would normally receive your wages. As you left 8 weeks ago, unless it was agreed to pay you on a different date, then you should have received your redundancy pay by now.

In your letter you should include the amount that you are due to receive. If they haven’t provided you with this information by way of a written statement, you can check the amount by visiting the Government website or by clicking here. I would also suggest that you enclose a copy of your contract in your letter as this includes your start date, salary etc for confirmation.

If you still don’t receive your redundancy pay after writing to your employer then do get in touch as soon as possible as we can provide further legal advice and assistance on the next steps you can take”

** IMPORTANT – COVID-19 **

We can confirm that our Sheffield and Barnsley offices are now open.  We are ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all our staff and clients by offering an appointment only service.

Please do not attend without firstly making an appointment.

To help us manage this we will be keeping our office doors locked so we can ensure that there is only ever one client in our reception area at any given time.  We would also ask that you attend your appointment by yourself where possible to ensure we are limiting the number of people attending at the office.

If you are unsure of what to do, please telephone our offices on 0114 358 3134.

Please note our Free Wednesday Clinic is currently suspended until further notice.
