Carillion redundancies total more than 1000

Carillion power lines

The total number of Carillion workers made redundant since the company went into liquidation is now more than 1,000 after a further 152 employees were laid off today.

A total of 1,141 jobs have been lost as part of the liquidation process so far, the Official Receiver announced in a statement. A further 942 jobs have been saved, bringing the total number of safeguarded positions to 7,610. This number is expected to rise as discussions with potential purchasers continue, the statement said. 

Employees who have lost their jobs are entitled to claim for statutory redundancy payments and should contact the Jobcentre Plus’ Rapid Response Service for support. Last week the Insolvency Service announced it was prioritising payments to former Carillion staff.

A spokesperson for the Official Receiver said: “Most employees who have transferred so far have done so on existing or similar terms and I will continue to facilitate this wherever possible.

“Discussions with potential purchasers continue and I expect that the number of jobs safeguarded through the liquidation will continue to rise.

“I am continuing to engage with staff, elected employee representatives and unions to keep them informed as these arrangements are confirmed.”
