Support for those made redundant at International Currency Exchange

Those who were made redundant following International Currency Exchange going into administration could receive 90 days’ pay in addition to any redundancy payments.

We are supporting those employees who have been made redundant on their protective award claim.

What is a protective award claim?

A protective award is an award of compensation that you will be entitled to if you have been made redundant and were not consulted with adequately prior to your redundancy. This rule still applies in cases of administration.

A protective awards claim is separate from the usual redundancy claim. So, if you are eligible for this claim, you could receive two separate payouts on your redundancy.

There is no  minimum length of service required for a protective award claim.

It is important that you act as soon as possible, for the best chance to protect your legal rights. Contact us today by using the form below.

How much could I be awarded?

You could receive the maximum amount of 90 days’ pay.

In the event that your employer cannot pay your award, do not worry, the Government guarantees 8 weeks’ pay, capped at £544 per week less any arrears of pay you may have received from the Redundancy Payments Office. So you could receive up to £4,352.
