My DH has been advised that he is likely to be made redundant very soon as his employer didn't get a contract that they were hoping for and now there will be very little work in his field very few people in his team may keep their job.
He is a permanent employee but has only been in this position for approx 6 months. He has been advised that he is not entitled to any redundancy pay as he hasn't been there for one year and will only be given one weeks notice
Despite this, his employer just advertised a position on seek that is at a similar level to my DHs role but in a slightly different field - my question is are they obligated to try to redeploy him? He meets a significant portion of the selection criteria for this position.
Also do they need to provide him with some support to find another job?
Sorry one more question - he had colleagues in the same position as him but on contract positions. Should he be given more chance to keep his job than them? He is unsure when their contracts expire.
Thanks in advance
