We are considering the Employment Tribunal Judgment making an award to former staff of Comet because of inadequate consultation prior to redundancy. If you are a former employee of Comet we cannot at present confirm your eligibility for a payment.

A further hearing to confirm who is eligible to claim a payment will be held on 17 July 2014 and we will comment as soon as possible after the judgement has been published.

When a ruling on eligibility has been made we will be able to process payments. Payments are usually made within six weeks
