Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
The organ process was defined as a paper based promotion board and the new process required assessment centres which massively switch the emphasise from evidence of what you had done to how you performed in exorcises
did you get the promotion?
Obviously not !
Also as a result I could not continue in the job I had been temp promoted into. Nor could I return to the job I had previously so I now have a less significant role than before I started the whole process
Hi, sorry the site went down at my end for a short period of time. Going back to your question, if there was a contractually binding policy that applied to you, then you have every right to expect the employer to adhere to it. It is after all contractually binding, meaning that both parties would be obliged to follow it. If a party fails to follow the terms and contents of a contract then they could be held to be acting in breach of contract. Your remedies would depend on a number of factors, for example an important one is how long you have worked there for. Can you please confirm your length of service so I can assess your rights in challenging this?
Hi I have been employed for 7 years also could you comment on any redress as a result of the situation I have now been left in as a result
The policy is in a document referred to as conditions of service which is referenced in the offer of employment letter I assume this would constitute a contractual doc ?
Yes that's great only one last point in terms of damages the promotion came with a automatic 10% pay rise which I asssume would be the finnicial loss can I claim for loss of future income and if so for how long is normally feasible. I have one more question but will send that through to you separately
No Thats great thanks
you are welcome, all the best
HI Ben how do you close the question so I can rate you ? Also could you provide me with a form of words that Igood use to express the obligation around the contractual aspects so that when I speak to the company it is clear I have had legal advice
Hi, you should be able to rate the answer by now, option is enabled. As to making the employer aware of this, there is no need to use any fancy words and a simple statement will be sufficient to get the ball rolling. It can be along the lines of:
“I wish to raise a formal grievance about the recent promotion process, which failed to follow contractually established practices. As a result I was denied the opportunity to successfully complete the promotion process and consider this to be a breach of contract.”
