Redundancy & Unemployment Benefits
Hi All, I have recently moved to a Belgium contract (just over 6 months) but I have been with the company a long time.
I believe that I will be made redundant very soon and I am taking the advice of a lawyer in terms of communications and what I could expect as a severance payment.
I would like to get another job as quickly as possible but I am in a fairly specialised area so the likelihood is that I will have to move countries. While I am here though does anyone know if I am entitled to claim unemployment benefit of some kind ? (My partner has just gone self employed and as yet is not earning much).
How much could I expect (a partner and 1 child) and will severance affect this ?
Also if I start working in the UK but travelling back to Belgium at weekends (I do have an address in the UK) then I assume that I just pay UK tax ? (I will take some prof advice on this one but just wanted to know if anyone had direct experience of it).
