My son has just been made redundant by a major credit card company because the management has decided to export all the work to Poland.
He will get a good redundancy package negotiated equally throughout
the whole works but not all his leaving payment is being paid as
redundancy pay, some three months salaries worth is being paid as pay
in lieu of notice.
I told him he should immediately claim job seekers allowance but he
says he can't on account of him receiving pay in lieu of notice. I
said he's either employed or he isn't, if he is employed his erstwhile
employer should pay and deduct his NI contributions and AFAIK they are
not doing this.
Is the above correct? Comments and suggestions please.
