We have an employee who works 2days. As a bookkeeper. She has been with us for around 5years and is an excellent employee. With systems in place we feel the 2 days she is working isn't required for the job. We approached her to discuss taking additional tasks which she said yet she would consider. When we sat down to discuss these additional tasks she advised she didn't have time to do these tasks.

We believe the role can now be cut down to 1day bookkeeping / 1 day admin. Where do we stand with this job description change?



Pretty standard stuff.


Basically, if circumstances change, then her position must do so as well.

You cannot be seen to be giving her some hardship in regard to the matter. She really has no recourse legally.


You can offer her the one day per week gig, she will either accept it or quit.


It really is that simple.


Please accept.
