Hello, I will assist today.

when returning to work, if you find the employer has or is making a significant change to your job, then they must discuss this with you. If it means a drop in wages you have to agree. If they just go ahead and make the changes without your consent and you left you could have a case for wrongful dismissal.

However, if they discuss it with you, and inform Which it appears they have done, that there will be no night shift, and you do not accept new role, then the employer could look to make you redundant, because your night position is no more.
