Employees who have lost their jobs because a company has gone into administration or liquidation, outsourced activities overseas or has been sold to another firm may not realise that they still have employment rights.
If your employer has gone into administration, or your role has become obsolete after an outsourcing operation, you could be entitled to claim if your employment rights have not been honoured.
You may also be able to make your employer reconsider or pay compensation for any loss of entitlement if the firm you work for has been taken over and the new owners have made any changes to your:
- Terms and conditions of employment - maternity/paternity leave, pension
- Holiday entitlement
- Holiday pay
- Sickness pay and rules around absence through illness
In the past, these negotiations would often have been dealt with by union representatives. Nowadays, when many workplaces do not have unions, employees need to fight for their rights themselves. However, you do not need to do this alone. One of the most effective ways of doing this is to get together with other employees, with the help of a solicitor, to bring your case together as one.
Making a claim with other employees who have been let down by their employer can be more beneficial than making one alone. It means you can share resources and evidence to strengthen each other’s cases, improving your chances of being successful.
We have extensive experience in this area of law and we can help ensure your employment rights are recognised and that you get everything you are entitled to following a company takeover, administration or liquidation.
JMW’s specialist employment lawyers can help you take up your claim, often on a no win, no fee basis. We take on cases in any sector, including retail, banking, education and construction.
