Cleveland Bridge administration – know your rights as an employee

We understand that a significant number of employees may have been placed at risk of redundancy after Cleveland Bridge announced it was going into administration.

Facing redundancy due to administration?

The redundancy process is often a difficult time for the individual facing redundancy, but when it’s a mass redundancy due to the collapse of a company it can be particularly hard to know what to expect.

If you are an employee and have been affected by the recent administration of Cleveland Bridge we can work with you to ensure you receive what you are legally entitled to.  This may include making application for compensation for unfair dismissal, redundancy or a protective award for you and your colleagues. Protective awards are given to employees who have not been consulted with prior to their redundancy in circumstances where 20 or more employees have been made redundant.

The employment team at Linder Myers, headed up by Alan Lewis has extensive experience in Protective Awards and unfair dismissal claims arising out of redundancy situations. With offices across the UK, the team has successfully acted on a number of similar large-scale matters.

The right to claim for Protective Awards isn’t always well-known to employees and there’s a time limit of three months to begin a claim so it’s important to act fast with professional guidance. We understand how difficult this time is and our experienced team are on-hand to guide you through the process. Get in touch today for a free, no-obligation discussion.

To find out if you are eligible and begin the claim process today, contact us on 0800 042 0700 or email
