    The short answer - your problem.


    are you with a union? They can help.


    A small increase in hours is often seen as reasonable.

    Do you have a partner / friend / relative who can drop the kids off?

    What do you want as an outcome?

    Redundancy or a change to the hours of the new posts?

    I want redundancy. Its not alot but would much rather just take it and run as there is more responsibilty in the new role and alot more to learn for the same money!

    Why? Surely if they offer you the job, then you cans till just resign.

    Think you need to take 5 and calm down. Your reasons aren't valid in terms of business. It's you personal life.

    Not one I can answer - are you not in a union?
    All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.

    Excellent. Except that the employers perspective is the only one that truly matters.


    They can refuse to pay redundancy and the onus is on the OP to then take action.
