Citizens Advice is warning of a surge in demand for redundancy advice following an analysis of its recent service activity. Between 8-12 June the charity’s frontline advisers helped 1,200 people with 2,000 redundancy issues, i.e. one person every two minutes. The charity has given one-to-one advice to 8,600 people on redundancy issues between 23 March and 12 June, a 199% increase on the same period last year. Citizens Advice’s redundancy webpages had 672,946 pageviews between 23 March and 12 June. On 12 June three of the top-five most-viewed advice pages were redundancy pages. CA say that while the Job Retention Scheme has so far prevented many redundancies, with more job losses on the horizon, the need for government support remains crucial.
