Hi guys, im posting this on behalf of a family member.
He has worked for a company for 3 years running.
he's 25 now.
Today, he got a phone call from a manager at the company, informing him that he is now on temporary lay off effective immideatly.
He was due to work tomorrow night, sunday night, tuesday day, wednesday day, and then has 1 week holiday's booked.
1 other person has been told the same.
they gave no time frame on how long it will last.
they gave no clear details on why it happened.
they gave him 30 hours notice. (due to work tomorrow night at 7pm)
A few weeks ago, he requested his hourly rate increase, as per his contract, and was granted this.
it was due to begin this week.
what should we do? He was in the middle of applying for a mortgage, and obviously has to abandon that idea now.
any advice would be grateful.
