Further to a meeting with the liquidators Ken Fennel and James Anderson from Deloitte, it has been confirmed that as a result of the pandemic and the most recent extension of the government lockdown, which will now last until early March 2021 and may be extended, the redundancy process will now commence.
The liquidators have announced that the prospect of further closures has resulted in this decision, which will now result in a step by step process being communicated by the Liquidators to all members impacted.
Mandate has been advised that the various claims in relation monies owed to individuals, redundancy calculations, minimum notice payments, pension entitlements where applicable etc., will be communicated by the liquidators to individuals over the weeks, with one-to-one discussions being facilitated by the Liquidators through an online platform.
