Ask an Australia Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
I am a little confused. Are you saying that
- my company can effectively demote my role without any consultation and I have to accept this?
- that my role is only linked to my salary and that the fact that I have lost responsbilities and am effectively being forced from my job as I have nothing to do and it will affect my long term career prospects that I have nothing to do.
From other discussions, I understood that if my role changes by greater than 50% that I have grounds for my employer to have to either formally offer me an alterative role with clear job description or offer me redundancy.
