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.
So how long have you worked for this employer for?
What are you a tually hoping to achieve please?
Thank you. So this policy of automatic assimilation without interview - where is that from, is it an official policy in work?
WhT the employer is doing is certainly not illegal or breaching any laws. They have the right to interview for suitable alternative employment roles, even if there is only one candidate. They can even reject you for the position if they find that you are unsuitable for it. So the only way to challenge this is if there is a clear and specific policy which says they cannot do that, and even then one which is ideally contractually binding, rather than just a non-specific or non-binding one. Generally it is the only way to challenge this because they otherwise they have the right on how to select employees into positions and it can include an interview if needed. Nothing in law says that they must avoid that if you are the only one applying.
