Does taking a consultant job after being made redundant affect my payment?

I have been made redundant after 21 years. The company was sold and I have taken a zero hours contract with the company that took it over – but only after I left – as a consultant.  Will this affect how much I get in redundancy?

Based on what you say about the role being offered separately after you were made redundant and not as a suitable alternative to redundancy,  it would seem that your redundancy claim would be unaffected by any money earned in the new role.

Further it sounds like the new role is ‘consultancy’ based which means you might actually be self-employed as opposed to a zero-hours employee, but further clarification would be needed.
