Ooops, posted too soon! If he is made redundant and you have a mortgage you may get Support For Mortgage Interest to help you with paying the mortgage while he looks for work.

The company are entitled to decide they want the work done in another way; however it is very unusual to make someone redundant and then immediately re-employ them doing the same work freelance. I would think there would be big tax liabilities on the redundancy pay and is earnings if it was deemed he was an ongoing employee. I'd suggest speaking to them about extending his notice period or something similar so he is kept on while the work needs doing

Yes it sound a bit dodgy. If the work clearly still exists, grounds for redundancy are spurious. If he is 're-employed on a consultancy basis he will have little or no employment protection, however if he is doing the same work under the same conditions then arguably he would have case for being an employee and not a contractor. Get specialist advice from an employment lawyer or acas.

Good luck.
