HR Tip: Re-engagement following redundancy

pp_default1

These questions are being answered by Learn HR, a market leader in the provision of HR and payroll training and nationally-recognised professional qualifications.


Q: We made a man redundant nine months ago but now want to re-employ him. How do we stand, particularly with regard to his redundancy pay? And what is his continuity of service?
