Taking redundancy personally.

Wednesday, February 05, 2003

Delving deeper on the IT Job Board revealed a ton of tutorials on a huge range of subjects from Web Marketing to Active Listening. Browse the whole list.

NamesFacesPlaces linked from cwjobs.co.uk has a lot of interesting editorial, but requires you to register (free) before viewing it.

Reading in the Evening Standard last night that a predicted 15,000(!) jobs will be shed from City institutions alone in 2003, my optimism took a turn for the worse. I realise how fortunate I was when they detail that under statutory redundancy rules the maximum weekly amount for each year of service is £250. Although the very lucky ones who receive a huge redundancy cheque will only be taxed for over £30,000.

They then advise you to shop for cheap food and services, tell your bank manager, remortgage your property and rent out a room, stop your pensions payments but not your critical illness cover, claim Jobseekers Allowance and thank the day you took out MPPI.
