The recent liquidation of Glasgow-based Tots Bots, a family-operated manufacturer and online retailer of reusable nappies and swimwear, has brought to the forefront the plight of employees faced with sudden redundancy. With the unfortunate closure resulting in the loss of all 47 staff positions, this event highlights the need for understanding and navigating the complexities of protective award claims.

The Sudden Closure of Tots Bots

As reported by The Herald, Tots Bots' liquidation is a significant blow to the local economy and its workforce. The company, known for its eco-friendly and innovative products, has been a staple in the Glasgow community. The abrupt nature of the redundancies leaves many former employees facing uncertainty and financial insecurity.

What Are Protective Awards?

In such scenarios, where employees are made redundant without proper consultation, they may be entitled to a protective award. Protective awards are compensation granted by an Employment Tribunal for an employer's failure to consult employees about large-scale redundancies, as mandated by UK employment law.

Eligibility for Protective Awards

Employees of Tots Bots, or any company undergoing similar circumstances, should be aware of their rights in this regard. To be eligible for a protective award, employees must demonstrate that their employer did not conduct a fair and thorough consultation process before making redundancies. This consultation should involve discussions on ways to avoid redundancies, reduce the number of employees to be made redundant, or mitigate the consequences of redundancies.
