Sorry to hear the news Dave. As everyone else says, hope it gets sorted.

So many things are just starting to fall through the floor.

As with others, I'm sorry to hear the bad news. I do think some companies have no heart when deciding when to announce bad news such as this. Hope you find something to go to if they decide to push everyone out :(

I feel for you Dave. I'm now on my second redundancy in as many years. This time I don't have a sinking ship to join. It happened the same for me in November 2009. Christmas became a passing insignificance as I tried to keep the six people in my department in work.

On a brighter note my dog thinks it's great now I'm around most of the time.
I hope it works out for you mate.

Sorry to hear this, Dave. Not many jobs are really safe as I found out. I'm glad that I'm out of it all.
I don't like signatures, they take up too much screen space.

Planning is an unnatural process, much better to just get on with things, that way failure comes as a complete surprise instead of being preceeded by a period of worry and doubt

I can only echo what others have said Dave....but...have you thought about going it alone? A man of your talents, honesty and pleasant demeanour would be in high demand..... me? I am off to lag somebody's roof today. :)

I'm sorry to hear your problem has returned Dave, I experienced four redundances in 9 yrs, but that's the building trade, don't have that to worry about any more. Hope it works out.

Hiya Dave

Just perusing through the forum and noticed your thread, sorry to hear about that. I got my 90 days notice earlier this year, was due to finish April 1st 2011 with current employer, luckily they secured funding from somewhere. Since then I have seen many good people leave only to still see it very top heavy on the managerial side of things, , pretty soon they will have none of us to manage at all. We have had recent meetings etc with regards to the financial situation of the organisation and it doesn't look good come January. I work in the voluntary sector and am finding tougher to actually do my job effectively, seeing as how I worked in partnership with the public sector peeps ...many of whom have been made redundant.

I am gonna put the lotto on Tuesday and will stick an extra one on for you fella.

Regards

Ned

Sorry about your predicament - 90 days is a long time to wait and worry.

I sometimes wonder whether companies do this in the hope that people will find another job to save the redundancy payment.

Sometimes its just a bit of legal paperwork, and as you say hope they won't have to dish out so much redundancy pay etc.

I actually heard a manager the other day say to someone in front of me that ' it would actually help'.....after I was discussing about looking for another job and leaving of my own accord....

ANYWAY..I HAND MY NOTICE IN TOMORROW...
