    Changed Position then Redudant 4th Jan 18 at 2:41 PM
    Hi there.
    I wonder if anybody can help.
    Within the last 6 months, I was asked to move to a new team, doing slightly different role, but probably not more than 30% different, and then recently that role (in fact whole team) has been made redundant.
    I wasn't offered the new team role I was effectively forced into it.
    Do I have any claim on Employment Law legality in this move?
    Regards

    How long have you worked there?
    Don't trust a forum for advice. Get proper paid advice. Any advice given should always be checked

    You said you were offerd the role, presumably you agreed to and accepted it.

    Then you said you werent offered it and you were effectively forced into it....

    Read your contract of employment. Chances are that it will say you may need to be moved between departments/teams if required.

    Yes, I've worked more than 2 years.
    The role wasn't offered ... I was effectlively moved into the new team.
    The only choice I would have had was to leave on my own accord.
    I can't see anything in my contract that says I could be moved between teams

    'any other reasonable duties.' 'react to business needs.'

    Nothing like that? A mostly similar job would qualify.

    Actually it does say 'vary any powers and duties assigned to you'

    Unusual for a contract not to say this or similar.
