Financial services companies, Greensill Capital (UK) and Greensill Capital Management Co (UK) went into administration on Monday 8th March 2021.
Greensill Capital (UK) Protective Award Claim
Unfortunately, over 400 employees from Greensill’s UK workforce have been made redundant with immediate effect after the company went into administration. It has been reported the company did not adequately consult employees before making them redundant, meaning those employees could be entitled to bring forward a protective award claim against Greensill Capital (UK) and Greensill Capital Management Co (UK).
Greensill Capital (UK) Redundancies
When an employer makes 20 or more employees redundant from one place of work, it is a legal requirement for the employer to collectively consult affected employees before making them redundant. Failure to follow the correct procedures could mean employees are entitled to lodge a protective award claim.
What is a protective award and am I entitled to one? A protective award is compensation of up to a maximum of 90 days’ gross pay for employees who have been made redundant without their employer informing and consulting them prior to making them redundant. These awards are paid by the Government’s Insolvency Service.
