We are urging individuals that have been affected by this recent announcement to get in touch to see whether we can support you on any potential mass redundancy and protective award options.

What is a protective award?

 A Protective Award is an award of compensation of up to 90 days’ gross pay that can be awarded by an Employment Tribunal for failure by your employer to collectively inform and consult you where you have been dismissed on the grounds of redundancy

Why use a lawyer for this potential claim?

The Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992 is a highly technical piece of legislation and it is essential that it is navigated professionally to avoid the many pitfalls for the unwary.  Even experienced lawyers unaccustomed to this niche area of law fall foul of its various requirements when dealing with Protective Awards.  The minefields to be navigated begin with how to get the claim started such as which employees have the ability bring a claim or whether other employees need to bring it on their behalf, the requirements of ACAS Early Conciliation, obtaining the consent of an administrator to continue the claim, complying with strict Employment Tribunal directions and orders, and dealing with Administrators and opposing lawyers.  It is therefore crucial at such a difficult time to be able to rely upon professional advice to ensure you maximise your compensation and get the right result in the shortest possible time.
