Hello, sorry the system had not informed me that you had replied. There is nothing in law that states an employer has to have the same grade of employees doing one particular job and if they believe that people from different grades can do them they can certainly apply that practice. This is very much an internal issue anyway – it would be the employer’s own policies that would dictate what grades can do what jobs and it is something that could only really be challenged if there was a specific and strict policy that states only a particular grade of employee can do a particular job. In the absence of such policy, as long as the employer believes someone is competent to do a job, they can be allowed to do so, even if they are of varying grades.
