Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you today. have you raised a formal grievance about this?
No not yet we have a meeting with the management team about it on Monday next week. I wanted to know where i stand for the meeting. I don't want them to lead me on again
What have they said will happen to you in the event they go ahead and you are not allowed to apply for the role?
they haven't elaborated. however if it goes to redeployment i won't be able to apply. i expect i would then be put on the redeployment list
once my psition is filled
was told if it went to redeployment i would loose my job
sorry for the delay in getting back to you. To be clear is the job that you have been doing going to change in any way, other than being given a new pay scale?
No the job it's self won't change we have just requested more money due to the type of duties we are carrying out. people with similar positions in different departments are receiving a much higher pay grade than us. We spoke to the management and they agreed we deserved more money so we submitted the paper work to HR nd it was then that they told us about the issues with redeployment and filling my position officially. had it not been for these issues we would have been awarded the regrade.
No worries about the delay. Thank you for getting back to me.
Hi if the employer does this then you have grounds to resign and claim constructive dismissal. If the role you do still exists, subject to a regrade your employer has no right to require you to go on to a redeployment register. This would only apply in the event that the role you were doing is redundant. The fact that they will not allow you to either continue in the new role on the new salary or apply for the new role on the new salary amounts to a breach of trust and confidence. Were you to be dismissed as a result of this it would amount to unfair dsmissal.
I would suggest you write a strongly worded email to ask on what legal basis do they think they have a right to remove you from your role? You should state that you have taken advice that it amounts to a breach of trust and confidence and that if you are dismissed as a result or forced to resign you will have a good claim of unfair dismissal. Hopefully they will then realise that their proposals are unsound.
If you have any further questions please do ask. If I have answered your question I would be grateful if you would take the time to rate my answer. Thank you and all the best.
That's great thank you for your help with this matter.
