Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, I’m Ben, a UK lawyer and will be dealing with your case today. I may also need to ask some questions to determine the legal position.
What would you like to ask about this?
Thank you. The first part they would be allowed to do, i.e. have someone else doing the same role as you but for more money. There is no equal pay right unless the difference in pay is gender-related.
However, you will have potential rights in the event they decide to dilute or remove your position as a result. However, if your role is potentially going to be removed, you should be placed face to face against the other person doing the same job and you should be equally considered for redundancy, with a fair and objective selection method adopted to decide who gets selected for it.
Therefore, keep an eye out on what the employer is doing with that new job and how it actually affects yours – maybe even keep notes on any changes, however minor, as they could used as evidence in the future.
Does this answer your query?
Ok good, if things become more obvious you can always raise a grievance to make them formally aware that you are not happy with that and that you are aware of what they are doing
Does this clarify things a bit more for you?
Not really and it will be useful in the e vent this is taken further, such as if you will pursue tribunal action in the future
