The collapse of the parcel delivery business, City Link, on New Year’s Eve 2014, with the loss of approximately 115 jobs in Warrington alone, is bad news. 
 
City Link has gone into administration and it is expected that 51 of the Company’s depots will close by 15 January 2015. 
 
At the time of writing it is unclear whether a buyer will be found, but it is likely that there will be redundancies in the near future. 
 
City Link Redundancy Compensation Claims 
 
There is no guarantee that if a buyer emerges redundancies would be avoided. However, employees dismissed by reason of redundancy would be entitled to a statutory redundancy payment. 
 
Statutory Redundancy Payments 
 
Statutory redundancy payments are calculated using a formula based on age, length of service and wages.  Employees are often asked to sign settlement agreements in redundancy situations. 
 
Legal advice on settlement agreements 
 
If you are facing redundancy from City Link or any other position then we can provide advice on your redundancy rights and advise on Settlement Agreements, as appropriate.  It is important to take the time to review any redundancy agreement, understand your rights and negotiate a fair settlement.  Visit our Settlement Agreements page for more information.     For further information on Employment Law and Unfair Redundancy Claims see our website or Contact Us to discuss your individual circumstances, advise you whether you can make a claim, how to proceed and what outcome could be expected
