The 40-year old son of my client has worked at a small firm for 25 hours a week for the last 6 years. They are now offering him the alternative of reducing to 17 hours or being made redundant with a pay-off of £3000. The hours will be in the middle of the day instead of mornings only as at present. he has to decide within the next 48 hours. Does he have any recourse, or does he have to make a very quick decision?
