Thanks for your patience. Unfortunately there is nothing in law you can rely on to force the employer to grant you your request for redundancy. The employer had openings for VR and those were granted to other employees. Even if one of these had decided to retract their request that does not mean that the employer has to proceed wit it and find a replacement. Even if they did, they do not have to choose you for it just because you are willing to leave. The final decision rests with the employer and they are free to withdraw the vacancy for R or grant it to someone else, just asmuch as they can accept your request. Unless you have been refused this opportunity due to a discriminatory reason, such as age, gender, race, religion, etc the employer would not be acting unlawfully and you do not have a legal leg to stand on to ensure they accept your request
Well this has answered my question Ben so many thanks for being open & honest, much appreciated
You are most welcome and sorry it was not the answer you were hoping for but keep negotiating with the employer. Please take a second to leave a positive rating for the advice I have provided as that is an important part of our process. Thank you and all the best
yes thanks Ben i will leave a positive rating for your advise, Many thanks
