Please can you give me some advice?
The company I work for as a warehouse and transport manager have stated that they have decided to restructure the company and I have been told in writing that I will be demoted to a warehouse operative and my salary will reduce from £32000 to £170000 to £19000pa, I am also part of the management team at present and believe this will also end, is this legal?
Do I have rights to dispute this, it appears it is only my department that they are targeting because nothing has been said to the service or projects managers and feel discriminated against
They have also stated that there may be voluntary redundancy but they can choose whom they accept to volunteer,
Do I have the right to request that they accept my voluntary redundancy request as I feel it is unjust to make such an insulting pay offer,
Do I have the right to refuse this demotion and stay at my current salary?
Hi Jenny i have 2 warehouse personnel i am responsable for at present and they have been sent the same letter. the company state the reason for this restructure is because of the current economic circumstances. i find this difficult to believe as they have just promoted the service operative to a NBmanager role. and there are 5 people in the projects department. they have just taken on a new salesman. opened an office in london and in the budget there is provison for the emploment of 2 more people. to me it feels if your face dont fit they will try to get you out. the service and projects manager are all very friendly with the operations manager who is responsable for this decision. over the past 5 years the company has grown from a 3 million to a 8 million pound company and are not in finacial difficulty. any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
