We know this will be an incredibly distressing time and we want to assure members that Usdaw will do everything we can to support you.
We will be sending out further communications with more details about the process and what happens next, including information on the pension scheme.
Usdaw has spoken with the P&H administrators and received further updates on the process for members claiming statutory redundancy and other related payments. Members can commence a claim electronically on the Government’s website
. The reference number for Palmer and Harvey members to use on the website is CN00054729.
Support for Finding New Employment
All members who have been made redundant need to register through this website to commence their claim. As part of the claim, members will be asked to calculate their losses. It has been agreed with the Redundancy Payments Office that the administrators will utilise the information from Palmer and Harvey’s payroll system to calculate the claim. Members should continue to input as much information as possible through the website.
A number of members have been in touch with Usdaw regarding references for future jobs. The administrators have advised Usdaw that they will send written confirmation to all former employees detailing their employment history at P&H for reference purposes. This will be sent as soon as possible.
Furthermore, we have been advised of a number of support events taking place across the country. Details of the events can be found here.
See previous updates.
We are receiving a number of offers of support from companies keen to take on Palmer and Harvey staff. See the companies listed below for further information.
Usdaw is keen to make you aware of all job opportunities as quickly as possible, however this should not be taken as a recommendation or endorsement of the job by the Union.
Usdaw is able to offer information and support with CV writing and other job hunting skills. If you would like this support, please contact your local Usdaw Office
and ask to speak to your Lifelong Learning Project Co-ordinator.
Your local JobCentre Plus office will also have details of vacancies in your area as well as advice about benefits available to you and how to make a claim.
