- Claiming from the insolvency service – any experience of timescales?
No. I wasn’t there long enough to claim redundancy. The owner upped and buggered off to Central America.
The 4 bounced weekly pay cheques should have been the warning lights, but being young and dumb, I believed him when he said this one, for two weeks wages after the first one bounced, wouldn’t. Ditto for week three and four.
Went home on Friday, Monday the unit was all locked up with nobody to be found. I struggled to find another job, struggled to “sign on” because I had no proof that the job had terminated. A shit few months all round really.Posted 3 months agomalgreyMember
It was a long time ago (15 yrs), but the only time I’ve had to claim statutory, it was weeks rather than months. They were actually pretty helpful. Value is pretty low, week’s worth for each year of service capped at whatever the current lowest rate is!
Never got anything as a creditor later once all wrapped up though.
Good luck with getting something new sorted.Posted 3 months ago
