    Suitable alternative employment issues

    I am recently going through a restructure where my employer has offered me a suitable alternative employment and has informed me that as the job is 80% the same that I am being slotted in however there are a number of issues I have raised throughout consultation and after number 1 the newly created role they are slotting me into is basically an amalgamation of my job and another department mangers job who has left on voluntary redundancy number 2 I have asked if the job has been reviewed as I have benchmarked similar roles in similar organisations and the pay grade is higher the role is not 80% the same as it includes a vast number off additional responsibilities and they are paying me the same amount can anybody help me as I am raising this with my managers and directors and they are ignoring my questions and have sent me an email asking me to accept slotting in

    As this has been offered as a suitable alternative to you being made redundant, presumably on a four week trial, then the first actual consideration for you is whether you believe it to be a suitable alternative position to take and on what terms it is being offered. If there is no detriment to your current conditions i.e. same place of work, hours, salary etc then it would be hard for you to argue that it is not a suitable alternative. If you unreasonably reject the offer then you may forfeit your right to any redundancy payment.

    It may be a case of trying to see if you can get an agreement to accept the role but with a review of your salary at some agreed time in the future as the demands and responsibilities of the job become more clear.

    Yes that’s correct they have basically amalgamated my job and the other managers as they have left on voluntary redundancy so effectively I have two dept to manage and double the work and staff to manage and no increase in pay.

    Have you been offered the new position as part of the restructuring on the basis the company believes is it a a suitable alternative instead of redundancy?
