Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
How long have you worked there for?
Thank you. Being in a job share does not mean you have any sort of automatic rights to the other part of the job – you are effectively doing two separate roles (i.e. one role was split into two) and each will have its own rights. Therefore, if there is suddenly a vacancy in the other part of the job share, you do not automatically get first refusal for the extra hours or have any priority for getting it. The employer could still conduct a formal and competitive recruitment process, which could require you to go through the same hoops as anyone else interested in it. The fact you are already doing that job does mean you could potentially have an advantage over them but that is for the employer to decide.
