Can a director employ 2 PAs one part time and one full tim

Can a director employ 2 PAs one part time and one full time?
taratill :

Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you today. What is your concern about doing this?

Customer: Hello, wanted to know if legally a Director or CEO can have 2 PA's - a part time and a full time
Customer: Hello Jenny, are you there? Thank you
taratill :

Hi there yes there is nothing to prevent an employer from doing this. Particularly if they have a lot of work they need to delegate and need more than one full time person to do it.

taratill :

If you have any further specific questions please do ask.

Customer: Thank you for your quick reply. Your answer gives me hope. The situation stands like this. I first joined the CEO office 9 years ago to cover maternity leave for his PA. When his PA returned to work after 6 months the CEO was reluctant to let me go as I did such a good job during the 6 months I've worked for him therefore he wanted me to stay. So, a new role was created for me as Float PA to Directors, meaning I was covering when she and another Director PA were on leave etc. At all times I was based in the same office as the CEO PA , working together and sharing duties. Three years ago she got pregnant again. She went on maternity leave for 1 year. During this period I was solely looking after the CEO as the office is extremely busy. She returned to work on a part time contract. I want to know whether I have solid grounds to ask for my job title to be same as my colleague -" PA to CEO" as I work on full time basis and I'm carrying out same duties and been doing same job for the last 9 years. Please let me know if further details are required. Thank you for your assistance . Mary
taratill :

I am sorry for the delay in responding. I see no reason why your employer should not give you the same title. If you have been working there for 9 yearsthen you have the right to be treated fairly.

taratill :

Your employer should listen to your concerns about job title and give you the correct title for the role that you do.
