Support for employees affected by redundancy from Axiom Ince Limited

Axiom Ince Limited

Pearson Solicitors are supporting employees who have been made redundant, or are at risk of redundancy from Axiom Ince following their filing of an intention to appoint administrators as staff could be awarded up to 90 days pay through a protective award claim.

Workers who are at risk of redundancy or have been made redundant from Axiom Ince Limited without adequate prior consultation will be able to make a claim for a protective award.

What is a protective award claim?

A protective award is an award of compensation that Axiom Ince employees will be entitled to if:

  1. At least 20 employees (including yourself) were made redundant / are about to be made redundant, in one establishment and;
  2. You were not consulted adequately prior to your redundancy

This means that the Company should have consulted with its employees,  either through a recognised trade union or elected representatives at least 30 days before making them redundant. If there was no trade union or elected representatives, the Company would have been required to arrange an election before consultation took place.

A protective award claim is separate from the statutory redundancy claim and no length of service is required. So, if you are affected by the administration of Axiom Ince you could receive two separate payouts on your redundancy.

If you believe you are at risk of redundancy, or have been made redundant from Axiom Ince Limited and were not represented by a recognised trade union, then please fill out your details on the contact form, and we will be in touch as soon as possible, on a no obligation basis. This is so that we can gather as much information as possible to help you with your claim.

How much could I be awarded?

Employees who worked for Axiom Ince Limited could receive the maximum amount of 90 days' on their protective award claim.

In the event that your employer cannot pay your award, do not worry, the UK Government guarantees 8 weeks' pay, capped at £643* per week less any arrears of pay you may have received from the Redundancy Payments Office. So in this situation, you could receive up to £5,144**
