If your job no longer exists they can redeploy you.
This is in lieu of redundancy.
If you are an employee then you have to follow all reasonable directions. If you are a contractor and have a contract then they cannot do this without your consent and if they do then they are in breach and you can sue.
What is the reason for the change?
If you believe it is unreasonable then you can have the matter taken to the Fair Work Ombudsman.
In relation to the workload they have to comply with the Award or agreement they cannot ask you to do what is not possible or legal.
I suspect, from what you are saying they are planning to restructure in the future.
You can take the matter the Fair Work and if you have a union and you are a member then you should have them take this up for you.
