I am 66 years old. dob XX XX XX . I could have retired at 65. I am a permanent full time employee for 12 years since 2003. Before that I was five days a week consultant with my current employer since Oct 1998. This is the normal time of year my employer sets work programmes and objectives for the coming year. Over the last 12 months a significant portion of my senior managerial workload has ceased or been transferred to others. (The company is getting smaller). I turned down voluntary redundancy 3 years ago. The company called me to a meeting and said before they set my work programme for the coming year they wanted to know my plans. When am I going to retire, do I want to work full time? Question - are their actions lawful? Is this a case of constructive dismissal? Nigel XXXXXX *********** please reply to *****@******.***
