Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
It is certainly possible for an employer to make the retraction subject to a change in contractual terms, even if it leads to a demotion or a change in pay. What the employer has to do is honour your notice period under the current terms. So until your employment under the current terms ends, they must still honour your existing terms and conditions. Once the notice expires they could place you in a different position with inferior terms, as agreed when they allowed you to retract the resignation. The alternative, as you have acknowledged, is that they simply refuse to allow you to retract the resignation and let your employment terminate.
I'm sorry if this is not necessarily the answer you were hoping for, however I do have a duty to be honest and explain the actual legal position. This does mean delivering bad news from time to time. I hope you understand and would be happy to provide any further clarification if needed. If you are still satisfied with the level of service I have provided regardless of the contents of the answer, I would be grateful if you could please take a second to leave a positive rating by selecting 3, 4 or 5 stars above. Thank you
No, because the initial reason for resigning was not this issue so you vannot cannot rely on it to then claim constructive dismissal. Also if you were to accept the demotion,retract the resignation,then resign again for being demoted, a tribunal will likely look at what happened and that this was not something instigated out of the blue by the employer, but was specifically done in return for allowing you to retract your resignation and it could really weaken any potential claim. Hope this clarifies?
