  • You weren’t consulted properly about your redundancy

What is the Claims Process?

Once you’ve used our eligibility checker and confirmed you meet the criteria, we can handle everything else for you.

This includes:

  • Getting permission to make a claim from the joint administrators at Grant Thornton
  • Completing an Acas Early Conciliation – this is a requirement before making a claim at an Employment Tribunal
  • Taking your claim to the Employment Tribunal – we’ll be there with you every step of the way and complete all the necessary paperwork for you

The Employment Tribunal will make a judgment about whether your employer failed to follow the correct redundancy procedures when making you and your colleagues redundant.

Protective Award Claim Time Limits

You only have 3 months, less one day, from the date you were made redundant to make a Protective Award Claim. This is a strict time limit so we recommend getting in touch as soon as possible so we can get your claim started.

Our Employment Solicitors know the Employment Tribunal process inside out so you can rest assured that your case is in the best hands.

How Much Compensation Will I Get?

The amount you’ll get will be based on your weekly pay, whether you’re a full time or part time employee.

You can claim up to 90 days’ pay for a Protective Award but you and your colleagues are guaranteed to be paid 8 weeks’ pay by HM Insolvency Service. As pay is capped at £544 per week, this means that the amount of your award could be up to £4,352.

No Win, No Fee

We handle most Protective Award Claims on a No Win, No Fee basis, which means you’ll only pay legal fees if we successfully win your claim. We’ll be open about fees and funding up front so don’t let money be a worry.
