I have been employed at Company XYZ in Michigan for the past 8 1/2 years and was promoted to supervisor after three years with the company. I have received good evaluations in the past with one exception, my stress got the best of me last year and I lost
my temper with staff which resulted in my being written up. Since that time, I have had no further issues and continue to perform my job in a professional manner. Currently, I am on a temporary
work assignment for a month at an off site location and will be
back in the office at the end of June. I should note that our company is not under contract with our local mental health authority to perform this service. In the meantime, I have been made aware of a new plan to have someone else fill my role as supervisor
and I will be named the "coordinator of something" with the same salary. The person who may take my job was promoted to supervisor around last year by the head of the company without the benefit of a job posting internally or externally. This was the case
with another employee also promoted to supervisor and as you can imagine, chaos reigned with "three supervisors" in one department. Unlike me, they have no staff to supervise, yet the staff has been somewhat confused about reporting protocol. This story goes
much deeper, but my question is this? Are they able to legally change my role just like that? Is this a demotion even with the same salary ?My temporary assignment is not a contractual requirement and technically is not a role within this company. I have a
sinking feeling that he is within his legal right to do whatever he wants to do and I may not have much of a choice. Please advise.
