When you are facing a redundancy situation your employer has a duty to offer you any suitable alternative employment that exists at the time. The objective is to keep you in employment with the company rather than having to make you redundant. However, if nothing suitable exists or anything that has been offered is considered unsuitable, then you may reject these positions and opt for redundancy instead.
So the issue is whether the employer has offered you all that is suitable and if what has been offered is in fact suitable.
You may indeed argue that the last job you did is something that amounts to suitable alternative employment – after all you have done it without any issues for a while and any changes, as far as you know, are not that drastic to make this a job that is not suitable for you to do. As to the other jobs you could reject them because they will not be considered suitable as they are on less pay and are around the country so your workplace would also be changing.
In terms of challenging this then your options are as follows:
if i was to go to tribunal on what ground could it be based on ??
well it could be on unfair selection for redundancy or failure to follow a fair procedure, such as offering you suitable alternative employment
Before you try and exit chat can you please let me know if your original query has been answered or if you need me to clarify anything else in relation to it before I close this at my end?

Employer has to fairly select you for redundancy, they cannot just pick you and need to justify their choiceIf placed at risk of redundancy you need to be offered suitable alternative employment If none exists or whatever has been offered is unsuitable you can reject it and opt for redundancy In terms of taking the suasion forward your only options are as listed in the bullet points above
