Citizens Advice offer ‘important’ advice as redundancy deadline falls today - be prepared
REDUNDANCY decisions will need to be made today as UK businesses reach the cut-off point for launching consultations on if they want to make 100 or more workers redundant before the furlough scheme ends. This is a critical milestone as how companies move forward from today will likely determine how employment copes in the coming months.

https://www.express.co.uk/finance/p...ns-advice-redundancy-advice-furlough-deadline

The current legislation on redundancies details that if a company has 100 or more employees that they plan to dismiss as redundant within a 90-day period, they must engage with a 45 day consultation period before the first dismissal is made.

For companies who wish to serve redundancy notices at the end of October/early November, which is when the furlough scheme ends, a consultation must start today.

Employees who may be affected by this will now have to go through an uncomfortable countdown but there are steps that can be taken to ease difficulties.

Tracey Moss, a Senior Employment Expert at Citizens Advice, commented on this unfortunate reality: “If you’re at risk of redundancy, it’s important to know you do have rights to help protect you from unfair dismissal and to ensure you’re paid what you’re owed.

That's all fluffy and lovely, but the businesses I am talking to that are drowning in debt are 'playing possum' and 'whistling Dixie'. i.e. they are doing Sweet Fanny Adams and hoping for the best.

When the money runs out and the credit deferment schemes come to an end, they will just close the gates with a bang and nobody gets anything.

Nevermind 'Spongebob' or any other magic schemes. Everybody from HMRC, though to suppliers, employees and creditors will be trying to pick the pockets of a naked man.

Here at Byre Towers, we can ride out the storm for a few months yet as we dumped every long-term plan and obligation and got ready for the long journey across a vast sea of no revenue for a very long time. That and contingencies to relocate in Germany were already in place as part of our Brexit planning. The C19 madness and current governmental ineptitude at all levels have merely added to an already accelerating slow collapse of the UK economy.

But if you are a bus company with £2,500 a month payments across 50 busses and all your drivers and admin staff are now coming back off their home-leave furlough schemes and you have zero revenue coming in, the only REALISTIC alternative is to trouser as much money privately and then allow the company to hit the inevitable brick wall.

Maybe, just maybe they can start again this time next year - after all, there'll be a shed-load of used busses going cheap!

Maybe the buses can be converted into housing for the people who end up homeless during Covid

I'm only half joking

Sod buses; a few of us could club together and buy a fleet of cruise ships if this situation carries on much longer.

Could cruiseliners become places for all the people who don't think Covid exists or don't want to wear masks to go and live and socialise together unhindered by Govt rules?

Just keep them permanently out at sea and have them sign disclaimers that they don't want medical treatment if they fall ill?

Could that work?

Every couple of years you could helicopter more people in to replace the ones that sadly do pass away to the illness somehow

The ones with long Covid could just be wheeled out to lie next to the pool all day and then wheeled back in to their cabin

They could permanently be out at sea somehwere near Brazil ?

And any new vaccine that's not quite ready could be tested by them all each month

Alternatively, they could be places where the frightened snowflakes go, have cotton wool installed in their cabins, and wrap the whole ship in cling film (allow adequate ventilation up top) so that they never ever ever have to take a single tiny risk ever again?

We can do that at home?

I'm trying to help you lot and you just throw it back

Lol

No masks needed on the cruise. You can dance together less than 1 metre apart, swap cabins, anything you want

Develop your own herd immunity together as a team

Each morning you could raise the Swedish flag and sing their national anthem?

You could even have Abba tribute nights as well?
