My wife has been made redundant, it was expected, and there is a modest 8 year severence package. The company she is leaving has transferred all its remaining employees to another company in an outsourcing arrangement and there was no specific role for her. This company however has multiple subsidiaries and after a short job search coincidentally has been called for interview by one of those subsidiaries next Monday. The question is, is this permitted and could she lose her severence package if they found out ? I heard something about the job description must be different and a gap of 1 month is required. Hope this makes sense. Personally I don't think its an issue at all because the outsourcing parent company didnt have a role for her during the transfer of employees, but putting it here on this forum just in case anybody has encountered "re-joining" the same company type situations straight after redundancy.
