At the start of November the company I worked for starting making layoffs. Myself and another guy who were due to go on paternity leave in January were both made redundant...neither of us had been at the company long enough to get redundancy pay but they did cover our notice period whilst terminating us without notice on the spot.
A few days after layoffs I find another guy who started the job the same day as me at the same level for the same role is promoted.
I'd be interested in any thoughts on this (p.s this is the UK)
