how long have you worked there for?
OK, thanks. Changing your job title is in the strictest sense change of contractual terms, which would require your approval first. Usually if your employer makes any changes to your contract without your approval then this may amount to breach of contract and you could claim constructive dismissal. However, in your case all that has changed is the title - your duties are the same, everything is the same, but the job title. This is unlikely to be seen as a fundamental breach of contract to warrant constructive dismissal. If your duties had changed, then yes, but not if it was just your job title I'm afraid. You can of course talk to your employer to voice your concerns about the change and if necessary raise a grievance but that's as far as it goes unfortunately. Your only other option is that if the change created such hardship for you that you completely lost the respect of your co-workers because of it, then you may be able to go down the breach of contract route, but you would have to show that it has really affected your position within the company to such an extent that you could no longer carry on working there.
