Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
9 years in full time permanent employment
The company has had over 10 tribunals brought against them since I've been there (which says a lot).
if they offer me a different position which is a lesser role than mine as it was a skilled role, do they have to pay me the same salary? And should they have been making pension contributions whilst I'm on maternity?
If my position is no longer there am I entitled to ask for redundancy or do I have to accept a lower role on less pay?
It is a demotion as I will go from a qualified accounts position with 2 staff reporting to me to a basic administration job in another company. Salary hasn't been advised yet though but I feel I would be better off if they made me redundant and I looked for employment with a professional company in a role I could use my qualifications in.
I'm just unsure if I can ask for redundancy rather than go down the tribunal route.
If I did not go on maternity I would still be doing the same job now as I was 6 months ago, the role is still there but my cover has been favoured over me. I find it so unfair but apparently they are allowed to do this?
If I went down the tribunal route can I start this when I go back to work after my additional maternity leave or do I need to start it now whilst still on maternity leave?
So if my manager calls a meeting in 2 weeks time and then says I have to accept the new role even though im not due back for another 3 or 6 months if i take all my AML do I have to start a tribunal within 3 months of that meeting or within 3 months of starting the new role?
they should not expect me back until after 52 weeks unless I give 8 weeks notice to return early which I haven't yet,.
do I ask my manager for all the reasons in writing why me old role is no longer available and why he thinks this new role us acceptable and go from there?
I never thought I would find myself in this position and want to do things correctly.
Thank you, ***** ***** until the meeting and ask for it in writing that my old role is not available then take it further.
should I contact ACAS regarding a tribunal?
Thank you for all your advice. I feel better now I'm more informed.
