Ultimately if you feel that your employer has behaved in such a way that they have breached the term of trust and confidence that everyone has implied into their contract of employment you can resign and claim that you have been constructively dismissed and that dismissal was unfair.
Constructive dismissal is the, obviously, the last resort.
I'm not quite sure what you mean by being made permanent. Are you working as an agency worker?
Hi, I noticed you read my last answer is there anything further I can help you with?
Thanks for response. In answer to your question about being made permanent. I am a staff employee and have implemented (on my own) an assurance system. To sustain and manage in the future I recommended there should be a support organisation (as happens in other companies) in place, with defined roles and responsibilities as part of their performance contract. I'd indicated a wish to be considered for the assurance manager position, as I'd been performing virtually the same role for a year.
Thanks for your reply is there any other question you have?
As I said above other than the route you are taking with the internal grievance your only other option is to resign and claim constructive unfair dismissal.
