I am in the position of being asked by my employer to attend a meeting in the very near future to discuss my position being made redundant. I have two questions, assuming i am made redundant:-
1) I am intending to make a request for information under the data information acts. I need to find out the time period restriction on this. Do i have to do this before being made redundant. Can I make the request within the period of redundancy notice or can i make it even after i have left the company within a reasonable time period?
2) At the time my employer was talking to me some days ago about arranging a meeting to formally discuss redundancy another officer was briefing my fellow employees as to the possibility of me being made redundant. Is this following the rules? In the event of a some sort of tribunal would this generalyl be regarded as a reasonable thing for my employer to have done (i can think of some complication with an employer taking this approach e.g. how awkward could this state of affairs be if i owed money to one of my fellow employees and the pressurised me for immediate payment!).
thanks in advance
