    Can I ask for time off for interviews during redundancy notice period?

    I still donít understand why am I being redundant but I have accepted it and started looking for new jobs. I have received some interview calls which sound very good. Now my question is that can I ask time off from the office to go attend the interviews or take some leave. If i take leave can they cut my redundancy pay?

    Hi friend

    I think you should not miss any good job opportunities as such oportunities are very rare and when you get such a good chance you should grab this by both your hands. So first of all you should ask your manager to grant you some time off during the redundancy period for attending the interviews otherwise you will miss some great job opportunities. I think your manager will certainly help you out as he also knows that you are undergoing a bad phase in your career and certainly need a boost up. So most probably your manager will allow you to take some time off for the interviews. And as it is your position is becoming null, so ofcourse he may have no problem in accepting your wishes.

    Taking leaves during the notice period depends upon the policies of your company and if your manager, by any chance, doesnt allow you to take sometime off, then you can certainly avail your leaves if your company provides you with them. I dont think you will lose your pay if your company allows you some leaves during the redundancy period.

    Even if nothing falls into place and then you are forced to take leaves on your own to attend the intereviews, you dont worry and do so because although you will lose your pay , atleast if you get a good job your future will be secured and you certainly wont have any regrets later on.

    So friend my advice to you would be to take any chance possible to secure your future. Good luck and God Bless
