    Hello all, hoping to get some help

    I have been employed by my current employer for 6 years, in one role. I was asked six months ago if I would consider another role within the same office, but at a manager level. We discussed informally how that would work, and an offer was put on the table for salary. I rejected that offer, and counter offered via email. The response wasn't clear, but invited discussion Discussion was had in person, and mutually agreed salary in probationary period (one month) increasing by a further £8,000 after this.

    Hours of work were agreed later, and I was advised I would get an Amended contract in a month.

    Contract never appeared. Chased several times. No training given in new role either, also chased this several times. Then had a run In with boss, as I advised another department that I didn't know how to do a task due to lack of training. Boss rings me, and tears strips off me, very sarcastic and rude over the phone.

    Lo and behold, I get asked in for a chat- two senior managers there, one that I had run in with, and another "note taking". In this chat, I'm advised that the hours of work and shift pattern were never agreed, I've been overpaid for six months, and going
    forward, my days will increase, or my salary will drop to account for those hours apparently they said I should have been doing for six months.

    My hours submitted to payroll have always been what was agreed at meeting, and have been paid at agreed rate for probationary period. I have had no formal reviews, although extremely positive feedback from management above me

    I have been advised that the business has done better this last two months than ever before, sales are up, and the head office are very happy with our progress .

    I have started the formal grievance process. Any advice?

    This feels like such a kick in the teeth after all my hard work

    Sorry to hear about the way you feel you have been treated.

    The grievance process is certainly what you need to engage with. I presume you have already raised this and included the points that you have set out in your post.

    What should happen next is a date set for the grievance meeting which should be heard by a manager and maybe someone from HR (to take notes) who have not been involved up to this point.
    If you would like a one-to-one expert consultation with me on your employment issue than I can be contacted by emailing admin@legalbeaglesgroup.com

    I do my best to provide good practical advice, however I do so without liability.
    If you have any doubts then do please seek professional legal advice.

    You can’t always stop the waves but you can learn to surf.

    You are braver than you believe, smarter than you think and stronger than you seem.
