Thank you for that I have a short meting this morning and will get back to you with my advice on how to proceed with this this afternoon .
Thank you for your reply and the information.
I haven't seen a copy of my contract since I began working there about 8 years ago, I do recall it says I may be required to work at any site but in practice this never happens to anyone, in fact I can't recall in that time anyone being moved to another site involuntarily.
The Occupational Health doctor is writing to my consultant, who I've already informed about my employer's plans, I'm concerned the OH doctor will be selective in favour of the employer as I've had difficulties with her before. If she does recommend that this move should take place against my wishes would any discrimination claim I make at a tribunal make be weakened by that? And if I refuse to go there against my employer's wishes on the grounds I think it'd damage my health, could I dismissed?
Thanks for this, just one final point before I close and rate, following on from what you said about my employment contract, I obtained a copy of this today. Not only is there nothing in there about being moved as a result of disciplinary, but the contract is for a different role that I had at a lower grade, a different site (in fact, the one they want to deploy me back to now) that I started in in 2006. In 2007 I moved to a different job in the same department but at new site at a higher grade. This contract doesn't make any reference to this. Does this effectively mean my current role is not covered by a contract or simply that, as I am already employed there, they have no need to issue a new contract? thanks.
