Redundancy

    If I were to take voluntary redundancy and am successful in getting a job elsewhere before May 31st, would I lose my redundancy?

    There are usually restrictions regarding redundancy that mean if a job was secured prior to the redundancy finalisation you would effectively no longer be 'redundant'. There is, however, nothing to stop you getting a job post the finalisation of your redundancy package.

    Just to clarify - I will receive notice of redundancy on or before May 31st with contract terminated on 31st August.

    What would mean I would lose any pay out?

    I'm not an expert, but I think if you get redundancy you can't go straight into another teaching job. I worked at a school where a member of the SMT was made redundant, but started work again (as a class teacher) a week into the Autumn term for the same school!
     
  6. I know a teacher who accepted redundancy but then wasn't allowed to get another job as a teacher for a set period of time (might have been 3 or 6 months?) - otherwise they wouldn't have been able to keep the pay out. She had to go and work in a shop for a few months and then got another teaching job. If you secure another job then I would steer clear of the redundancy offer - it doesn't exactly help having that written on your job history for future applications.

    Teachers that I know who became redundant on 31 August 2011 could not get another teaching job until 1st October.
    So there was a month's hiatus.
    This is almost impossible to manage (what school will take on a supply teacher for 1 month to wait for you?) so mostly they had to wait until January.
    Best wishes
