Customer Question

Hi, I have worked as a Financial Controller for a small, successful company for the last 5 1/2 years. My employer has notified me of a reduncancy consultation as our external accountants have approached him and say they can do my role for half of the money. We are making considerable profits, the letter even states that there is no need to save costs - just that it may be too good an offer to refuse. Can they do this if i can prove that there has been no reduction in my work since the day they took me on?
