Introducing Redundancy Assist

As a company director, you will, likely, have an understanding of redundancy entitlements for your employees. However, you may not yet know that directors are also entitled to redundancy payments from the  National Insurance Fund, if their company is insolvent, and they can prove their status as an employee of the company. With that in mind, Business Rescue Expert have, today, announced their sister service, Redundancy Assist, for guidance on redundancy entitlements for directors, as well as other staff redundancies.


Redundancy Assist  is regulated by the Claims Management Regulator in respect of claims management activities. This means it is able to manage claims for employment entitlements on behalf of directors and other employees. It combines the wealth of insolvency experience and employment expertise to navigate staff through claims for their employment entitlements from the National Insurance Fund.

It is able to work directly for staff and directors of liquidating companies, and can accept referrals from other insolvency practices.

Information on staff redundancies

Redundancy Assist also provides necessary information on employee redundancy entitlements in the case of company insolvency. In any case, the company has legal duties and obligations when making you redundant, and our experts will outline those obligations and what you can do to receive payments.

All employees are entitled to a notice period and this will, often, be defined by statute, or a written contract where available. Similarly, employees can be paid in lieu of a notice period and are, most importantly, entitled to time off for job hunting if in employment with the business for two years or more. Likewise, employees should receive any outstanding unpaid wages and holiday pay.
