My contract finished due to child moving on and there not been a suitable role with enough hours. I have recieved my p45 and August wages. I was told I had to go on gardening leave for four weeks. Am I still due wages and expected to be available for work. I have not anything in writing so not sure if I can work for an agency until four weeks are up or does this jeopardise redundancy money. I have not worked for anyone since we broke up for end of term. I was only told about redundancy on teaching training day in July when school closed. If anyone can shed some light on my position. If I am entitled to pay on gardening leave that's fine, if not can council not pay me redundancy if I work for an job agency.
