staff sue after Zoom layoffs

Former staff are taking legal action after they were told they were being made redundant over Zoom.

A small number of staff, thought to be about a dozen, have consulted Aticus Law which will pursue a Protective Award claim against retailer.

‘Under employment law, if a business is making more than 20 employees redundant at one establishment, they must follow the correct consultation process. ‘It’s absolutely appalling to think that nothing has changed since the collapse of P&O earlier this year, when the way the redundancy process was managed made headlines both here in the UK and further afield. Despite the concerns raised about the rights of employees to fair consultation over redundancies, it would appear that the employees at are the latest to be let go with immediate effect as their employer enters into administration, says Mohammed Balal, Aticus Law employment law specialist.

He says he expects for former staff to join the action. 

The staff couldreceive eight weeks pay in compensation, capped at £571 a week, if their claim is successful.
