Customer Question

My friend was on a secondment and was promised his old position back on his return. Secondment has finished. My friend has now been told his position no longer exists and it has been given to someone els with more pay. My friend now has been asked to come up with an idea what he can do instead. My friend feels demoted and upset.
Can the employer do this to him?
