Hello, my name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. What would you like to know about this?
How long have you worked there for?
ok thanks please leave it with me, I am just leaving the office but will work from home so will respond this evening as soon as I get back, you will get an email to advise of this
Thanks for your5 patience
Thanks for your patience, so just t confirm ids it your current position being made redundant and had you remained in your original position would the situation have been the same?
And how long ago were you put into this position?
ok as you moved to the current position without challenging this or indicating your dissatisfaction in a formal manner, it is likely that this would have become your permanent position. If that is the case and you are placed at risk of redundancy because this role needs a reduction in employees, then this will move on to a redundancy procedure where the key is fairness in selection. So the employer would have to adopt an objective and fair method to work out which one would be made redundant. This could entail using a scoring matrix where you are all scored on the same criteria, with the lowest scorer being made redundant. Another common method is to conduct a competitive interview process where you are all interviewed for the available jobs and the worst performer at interview is made redundant. There are various other methods but whatever is chosen it must be fair and objective. If you are the one chosen for redundancy then you will have the right to appeal and if that is rejected and you are dismissed, depending on the reasons for redundancy and whether you believe a fair procedure was used, you could also consider an unfair dismissal claim in the employment tribunal
If what you have been offered is not suitable compared to your current job you can reject it and it would not affect your rights to receive redundancy should you be the one selected for redundancy
I understand, there will be some limitations to what can be done here but we are really the first step for advice where you understand your basic legal rights and what you can do in the circumstances
you are most welcome
Apologies for that, there is a bug in the system which we sometimes get and it prevents you from posting your rating. Instead, you can just type your selection on here (e.g. OK, Good, Excellent) then we will process it manually later. Thank you
many thanks, ***** ***** best
