I am 66 years of age and still working. I am a staff employee with a Consultant Engineering Company (and have been for 20 years). - I was sent on secondment to the company I am still working at (for 6 weeks) January 2000. I have not had any increase in salary for over 4 years. The Consultants have recently increased my charge out rate by 33% (no increase for me)and therefore, the on site company I am at, have questioned this. The two are - shall we say - in consultations ( for approx. 9 months) but with no satisfactory outcome. Obviously no one wants to be responsible for any redundancy / pension / transfer expense. I do not wish to retire. The on site company, have work and want me to carry on with my on site work. I have been asked to resign (by all parties) so that no one will be responsible for any costs / fees etc. I wiil not resign I have made several offers / options to enable me to carry on where I am. - But they still want me to resign - and lose any and all possible rights. To me this is a very cute way of (by my consultant employer) of constructive dismissal. Please let me say I am on very good terms with on site place of work. I have suugested I work either directly or through another ageny, but their are conditions and problems with this (ie:IR 35). Where do I stand as I want and need to carry on working but because of the situation I am in - with no fault or intent on my side - I could be forced ouy of work with redress. Yours sincerly Howel XXXXX (Engineering Designer / Drawing Office Manager)
I am still working for my employer (Main Consultants) seconded to where I work daily on site.
I do not know what is meant by "subtantive post back" so I have not been offered or received such
The work I do - therefore the job - is ongoing. But my employment on site may disappear due to increase in fees.
The possibility of returning to Head Office has been mentioned but there may be no job allocation / vacany available
