UK Employment Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
I want to know if it is legal to offer a job (have the letter) then take it away due to an error on their sideand reduce the hours of it without any compensation for the lost hours pay. Why am I to pay for their mistakes.
No, my old job does exist - I managed and ran three departments. One department was closed but 2 of them exist -Business department and cookery department. These 2 together give me a full time job to which I had before. they currently want me to have Business 3.5 days only but have added IT as well -a subject never taught by me.Their ideal as my manager keeps saying to me is for me to take redundancy . This is not something I want.
There were lots of jobs available in my qualification and skill scan. I was never given a skill scan and applied myself for 2 posts, both jobs were in my capability but both times my manager said I did not sufficient skills and did not score enough at the interviews - both insulting and I think not following ring fence procedure.
