Corona virus and redundancy

Hi, sorry if this has already been done before, but couldn't find a thread.

A couple of weeks ago I found out that I am under consultation for redundancy due to the loss of business with corona virus, and I wondered if anyone else was in the same position?

There's very little job opportunities out there at the moment, which is worrying if I do lose my job!

Just wanted to share this, and be able to chat to anyone in the same boat!

Yes my company went into administration early on in lockdown although I am technically still working for them whilst they wind the company down redundancy looms although I dont know when, it could be tomorrow it could be in 6 months time. I wish they would hurry up and make me redundant now tbh then I can move on.

Yes, me. Sorry you are in the same position, it really is total crap

So sorry to see you are all in the same position! It's awful being so uncertain about the future. In one way I just want to know either way now, at the moment it's the not knowing!

Hopefully, we all get something positive out of this in the long term!

Hi @whatisforteamum that sounds like a difficult situation! It's scary how quickly things have changed, and I'm not sure what's going to happen next!
I have been looking at jobs since I found out but there's very little out there that I have the skill set for.
When is your DH likely to find out any more info?

I lost my job in March, had an interview today though so fingers crossed! Hope you find something soon x

He is not asking the questions as he fears the answer! .We don't have a start back date yet for the pub.The hours would be reduced anyway IF we can open.Very unsettling times all round.

I’m in exactly the same position as you. We are having to reapply for our jobs, contract changes also for most!

Good luck @Teacaketotty

Yes it makes me sad too, so many people are going to be affected with job losses and uncertainty!
