Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, my name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. When did you transfer to the new employer and what arr the reasons for these proposed changes?
Hi, there is nothing stopping the employer from trying to use ETO as a reason to introduce changes to your old contract. However, as previously mentioned there are quite limited circumstances when this would apply and it really has to be something unexpected and extenuating and it's certainly not possible for the employer to just go ahead and use it as a reason to make the changes. So even if they go ahead and use this as a reason, if you challenged it then it would be for a tribunal to determine whether it was something that qualified as an ETO reason or not, but the rules are rather strict and it would take something quite serious for it to qualify as being an ETO reason
How long have you worked there for~?
I would say it is worth challenging it because from they have said it does not appear top be such an extenuating reason that is likely to amount to an ETO reason for change. As to compensation it depends entirely on whether you are able to find a new job and how long it would take you to do so - you are only compensated for loss of earnings for being forced out so it would matter on whether it is proving difficult or easy to find one
yes I understand, but obviously each situation is unique and you have a duty to try your best and show that you have done so, obviously if it does not work then the tribunal will consider this when calculating any compensation
hi as mentioned it depends on how long you are out of a job for and if you are still unemployed by the time the tribunal comes then they will give a reasonable estimate as to how much further you may remain unemployed
Please let me know if this has answered your original question or if you need me to clarify anything else for you in relation to this? Thanks
this is all a change to your current conditions and you do not have to accept these, these are not really ETO reasons for change
you are most welcome, all the best
