I'm wondering if my boss is just displaying bad form or whether it's more serious than that. Basically there is a member of my team who has done bugger all for ages and is in a junior position. He has decided to make her redundant rather than go through the formal dismissal process so she will get a pay off (which will be generous - she's worked at my company for years).
But he told me that he was going to do it, in confidence allegedly, as a senior member of his team. It has since transpired that he has told pretty much the entire team so we all know that on Monday, she's going to be made redundant. So everyone in the team knows, except her
It's pretty horrible but is it actually against employment law or anything?
