Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    "but he lost his job along with another 400 staff at the US-owned company’s factory in Darlington, and has been out of work since. "

    He has my sympathy, but the employment protection does not cover you if your entire department is 'downsized'.

  2. Sadto hear the news, but it happened to me a few years ago mid tour I received a letter from my employers stating I was being made redundant at the end of my POTL. they got round it my stating Corporate restructoring and 'got away with it'.

  3. Ironic that a Union is fighting to force protection for TA troops.

    Isn't that the Government's job?
  4. I was made redundant whilst on Resolute 1...it was a pig but that's showbiz!
  5. One of the reasons I resigned and extended my mobilised service was so I didn't return to my old job just in time for redundancies (Is your job necessary ... well, we've just done without you for 6 months ...). Luckily I was in the UK and could get the wheels turning to look for a job before I got out.

    Redundancy sucks, anyone affected has my heartfelt sympathy.
