The Judge: VERDICTS - Too old for redundancy.

I WORKED as a sub-contractor but was made redundant after three years. The agency that employed me said they would send out my redundancy payment but I never received it. When I complained they said I wasn't entitled to a penny because I am over 65. Is this the case?

I'M sorry to disappoint you but I'm afraid it is the case. The company are well within their rights to refuse to pay. In terms of the Employment Rights Act 1996, no redundancy payment is due to a worker aged 65 or over.
