At the beginning of this week, I was made redundant. I wasn't too concerned as I was unhappy in the job anyway and there still seems to be plenty of demand for my role around, even though loads of people seem to be losing their jobs. HOWEVER, it looks a lot like the company (or at least, the director who owns the "limited" part of it) who has made me redundant will go bankrupt before the end of next month, which is when I'm supposed to get my redundancy payout. Now, I was counting on the tax-free payout that we had been guaranteed, and it was part of the condition for us accepting the redundancy in the manner we did (i.e. working notice, etc), but if the company goes to pot, what rights do I have with regards to my payout - is it just the government statutory and forget the rest, or do I have some sort of legal entitlement to the full payout as agreed? I've tried speaking to ACAS, but TBH, they've not been much help so far!
