Sadly I have people who are being may redundant, two of which have asked to leave on the 31st January and to be paid in lieu of notice, which we are quite happy to do.

I know the new rate of statutory redundancy pay goes up from the 1st February 2013 from £430 to £450 a week.  However I have been told that if the 31st January is the last actual working day and they do not work their notice and have PILON,  that I should use the old rate of £430.  Can anybody confirm this for me please?  Thank you.
