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 for this employer?
OK, thank you for your response. Leave it with me for now and I will review the relevant information and laws and get back to you at the earliest opportunity. There is no need to wait here as you will receive an email when I have responded. Also, please do not respond to this message as it will just push your question to the back of the queue and you may experience unnecessary delays. Thank you.
Just to clarify, what is the employer's position on this?
Thank you. I would agree with your interpretation. You have two separate contracts and each should be treated independently, even if it is with the same employer. In effect, you will have two sets of separate rights for each post. If both of these were put at risk of redundancy and you managed to secure a suitable alternative post for one of them, that should then mean you continue in the new position on that contract, whilst the second contact is dealt with separately. If that second contract does not result in a suitable alternative post and it triggers the need for pay protection, it should only apply to the role under that contract, the employer should not just apply a blanket pay protection policy on all contracts you hold with them, it should only be on the affected one.
