How long between verbally informing of redundancy and confirmation in writing


I've searched but not found the answer to this specific question. Although I've found out lots of other stuff - for example, that the term 'redundancy' is probably inappropriate. But how long is an employer allowed to get ready to confirm in writing a conversation in which you've been made 'redundant' (for want of a better word).

I was told in a meeting last Tuesday but have been fobbed off ever since that the letter 'isn't ready' yet. Now I know it's not official till I have the letter but what's bugging me is that I was told contradictory things about the terms of my severance by different managers. Only the letter will confirm what the deal actually is.

Contractually, I'm entitled to a period of time when my salary will still be paid so that's all okay but this dance of the letter seems to me like some kind of psychological game-playing that one would not expect from a grown-up.
