RCUK Tribunal Support Service

RCUK Tribunal Support Service

RCUK are the only company in the UK who offer a financially risk free service to assist directors at employment tribunal should their redundancy award from the government be rejected on employment status.

RCUK in preparing a directors redundancy claim ensure that the whole application is completed correctly to properly present the evidence confirming employment status. Claims made which do not meet the governments threshold for employment status will be rejected. A director has to also be an employee in order to qualify for a redundancy award under the Employment Rights Act 1996.

Despite a claim being presented correctly should it be rejected on employment status RCUK will support the director through to an employment tribunal for the case to be heard by an employment judge. RCUK’s service in this regard involves:

  • Applying to ACAS for the required early conciliation numbers
  • Submitting the ET1 form
  • Responding to the respondents ET3 form
  • Completing all documentation and document bundles
  • Provision of a leading employment law barrister to represent the director at tribunal
Redundancy claims are a very professional company, Caroline who is dealing with our case is friendly, compassionate and very clear in explaining everything during this difficult time. The service we have received has been amazing, Thank you.

The above service is covered in our normal percentage success fee and a further one off success fee to cover the costs of legal representation at tribunal.

This is the only commercially viable route to tribunal for claimants and RCUK will share that risk with our director clients. If a director were to appoint a law firm to assist them through to tribunal the likely costs would outweigh the value of any redundancy award being sought.

If you are a director of an insolvent company and want to make a redundancy claim RCUK can reduce the risk of rejection on employment status and should the worst happen provide an affordable route to tribunal at no financial risk.

RCUK are the only company in the UK that offer this unique service and level of support to directors of insolvent companies at a time when many are suffering both financial and emotional distress.

Can I claim redundancy if my company isn’t in, or isn’t facing liquidation?

Put simply, no.

Just as an employee would not be able to claim redundancy while still in employment, you as a director are only able to claim redundancy when your company is in the process of going into liquidation. This is because a redundancy payment is designed to help individuals who have found themselves out of work rather than for those who are just contemplating the possibility of this happening.

It should also be noted that directors cannot claim redundancy in the instance of a solvent liquidation as this is seen as actively choosing to put yourself out of work.
