    1)Old guy - not reliable, due to health issue. And that IS legal.
    2)Friend, they just said he's redundant. try to prove otherwise. Even if he went to Employment court - and won, it won't get him the job back.

    To be honest, I wouldn't mind redundancy. I'd get 63 weeks pay, and it would give me the chance to get into a more active job, rather than just sitting in front of a screen for 8 hours a day for work, then 3 or 4 for gaming

    Youre lucky. Most get $0 redundancy pay.

    Yeah, 3 weeks for each year I've been there. The downside is, IRD will take most of it in tax lol

    Split shifts would be the pitts , you have to hang around for hours , unpaid . Because no point driving home then coming back 3 hours later .
    I did almost 3 years of split shifts and they were horrible. Worked 9am to 3pm and then 7pm to 10pm three days a week. The other two days I worked were normal 8 hour days. Couldn’t really plan anything at all and the pay was rubbish. Tried to get the hours changed but management wouldn’t budge.

    Redundancy these days does not mean they give you a pay out. IT's generally goodbye and no money.
    Of the 3 times I got made redundant only 1 paid me anything, and that was F&P, 1 months pay.

    When the company you work for literally has no money to pay you, then its time to leave. You dont wait for redundancy .
    I didnt get the wages owed or owed holiday pay. Just had to walk out the door .

    Boss was in self-denial mode as his business slowly fell apart . He kept spending money he didnt have, on stuff the company didnt need, just racking up debts .
    I thought something wasnt right when I started the job , I didnt think they had enough sales to stay solvent . 2 years later it was all over .

    I got made redundant in 2017, fully qualified early childhood teacher............ do relief work, not got anything full time... still looking............ more time on benefit than working......... applied for so many jobs.......... get to interveiw stage...... but dont meet criteria.... not fun, budget is extremely tight....

    considering looking for seasonal work to earn some $$$ and go back to teaching later, but age is not on my side anymore......... they want the young newly qualified teachers.

    cant fix house, no $$, cant afford to move, cant afford to stay ....lol the best things in life...........are my kids and grandkids.......

    Im not trying to be difficult it just comes naturally.
