Hello! My name is ***** ***** I'll be the Expert assisting you today. Do you know why you were given a 60% mark? Do you think your race, age, gender, or sexual orientation may have played a role in anyway?

I'm sorry, I just realized that you are in Jamaica. If this is not a U.S. legal issue, I will be unable to assist you. I will opt out so you can seek the advice of another expert.

No. I am not apart of a union. Yes i have a contract.
Employment Lawyer: Law Educator, Esq., Attorney replied 6 months ago

Thank you for your reply.

So does your contract state anything about this move, because that is your controlling document here?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
No it does not.
Employment Lawyer: Law Educator, Esq., Attorney replied 6 months ago
Thank you for your reply.
So, here is the issue under Jamaican law, your contract terms control and if your contract does not say they cannot move you then the employer has a right to determine where they need you to work. Now you have a right to file a complaint to your HR department regarding the move and also you have a right to put a written dispute of your evaluation as well.
When disputing the evaluation, you need need to stick to the facts pointing out how the evaluation is wrong. You have the right to dispute all of the allegations in the evaluation in writing and should take the opportunity to do that.
Unfortunately, the psychological trauma you are experiencing is something the Jamaican courts say is part of the workplace, so you need to exercise your rights in writing an objection to the evaluation and complaining to HR about the matter to seek to get them to change their mind about the transfer. However, the bot***** *****ne of the employment situation is that unless this move violates your contract, the employer has a legal right to move you to any position where they need you to work.
