    No, because I'm now on unpaid mat leave. Leave entitlements don't accrue when your on unpaid leave.

    I'd take the redundancy payment while it's on offer, because for those with skills who consistently look hard you will find something else by next July.... Or if you still return to a new role in March then you have extra 'in pocket' $$ than you'd anticipated due to the payout. Maybe use it as a lump sum against your mortgage, car upgrade, put it away for school fees...the benefits of the payout are more tangible that way.

    The prospect of returning to work and possibly finding a new role for you to be placed into isn't something to hang around for.
    Also either way the gap on your CV for Mat Leave is still the same length

    I would take it now and start looking for a job straight away if u were hoping to return to work soon. It's not a bad reason to say u left because of company restructure/redundancy and also like u said, the cash is better off in your account sooner than later.

    I'd take it, I am on unpaid leave at the moment, and if my work offered redundancy I'd take it in a shot!
