Sunshine Care Update

Posted by Adam Buck on Thursday, 17 December 2015 in General

 

Sunshine Care Limited (“the company”)

 

My firm has been assisting the company in relation to its financial affairs and a proposed Company Voluntary Arrangement (“CVA”).

It was brought to my attention on Monday 14th December 2015 that certain former employees of the company had received letters from the Insolvency Service, Redundancy Payments department regarding their various claims for arrears of wages, holiday pay and redundancy pay where applicable.

Having made enquiries and spoken to the case officer at the Redundancy Payments Service, it is apparent that the letter sent to these staff was factually inaccurate and contained incorrect information.

I have been advised by the Redundancy Payments Service that employee’s valid claims will not in fact be rejected, but will be processed once the CVA is formally in place and any rightful entitlements paid. There is no need for employees to resubmit claims to the Redundancy Payments Service.

As regards those former employees of the company who transferred to new providers, the legal advice obtained is that their contracts of employment were transferred under their existing terms and conditions. In the event that the new providers have sought to vary the terms of employment, Lameys recommend that those employees seek their own independent legal advice.

I am unable to comment on the matter of former employees of the company obtaining loans from their new employers and being required to repay these.
