Re: How many will now leave anyway.... and miss out on redundancy?
"The small print is very clear, there is no commitment on either side until the employee accepts the offer."
Except that as per the article
"35 employees had submitted EOI and 29 offers made, with 21 of those accepted. Until last week – when those offers were retracted."
It would appear contractual redundancy offers were made, accepted, then retracted. This does seem like it might either be illegal or at least leave IBM open to swift defeat at tribunal.
