Is it legal to advertise my job before sacking me or making me redundant?
I heard my boss on the phone to several recruitment agencies today- discussing my job as if they were going to replace me! Isn't it illegal to advertise a job before sacking somebody or before they've hadn't in their notice? Any advice is much appreciated
Additional Details
There is no need for the rude replies. All I am saying is that, to get rid of me they would have to sack me, and they have no valid grounds on which to sack me, so would this not be unfair dismissal?

The company has the right to advertise any job anytime. If they do advertise your job, it is an obvious message to you that your job is on the line. However, before actually terminating your employment, they are required to give you certain length of notice, or compensate you based upon the length of your employment.

It's not illegal to make enquiries.
If you are in the UK and have been working in your job for a year, then you have the right to a notice period, this period is normally stated in your contract and is normally equal to how often you get paid (if you are paid every month then they need to give you a month's notice).
If they do advertise your job specifically with the intention of replacing you and have not given you any notice, and you have been working there for a year, they are in the wrong.
You should find out if they are seeking to replace you or just hiring an extra person.

they cannot make you redundent then re advertise your job. by being made redundent the job is no longer there, it will not exist after you leave, therefore you cannot be replaced for that specific job.

Are they jobsharing your job and cutting hours to allow someone to work alongside you doing the same thing?
The company would not risk an unfair dismissal tribunal for getting rid of your no reason unless they had another job in mind for you leaving your job open.

Of course there is nothing illegal about it. They need to get that position filled as soon as possible after you leave and if they wait for you to leave it could be weeks before they get a new person.

Redundancy means there is no work for your particular job! therefore, if your job is being advertised it can only mean you are not wanted,, Or you are about to get a collegue to share your workload.You cannot be redundant if the work is still there.

of course it's legal. happens all the time. The company is going to try to find a replacement for you before they sack you. It's common practice and good business. I know it sucks for you, but there's nothing illegal or even unethical in doing it.
