My employer has told me verbally that my position is no longer there, they are however keeping two girls on of far less experience and seniority. I have been with the company for nearly seven years and received a pay increase two months ago based on my excellent performance. Ours is the first of many departments that are about to be downsized and restructured (we are the guinea pigs), They have offered me three positions that are well beyond my skill set and capabilities. They are forcing me into positions they know I will fail, therefore they will be able to dismiss me on performance. It is my belief they are trying to circumvent redundancy laws. Is this LEGAL? Is this possible? If this were to become Knowledge to all employers, will redundancy cease to exist? I am 53 years of age and in the last 14 years have only worked for two companies. Where do I go from here? At this point their bullying is going to force me to sell my family home and still have no job future, I am currently seeing a psychologist but have been informed by work cover that harrassment & bullying aren’t a part of stress leave. According to latest stats. 58% of unemployed over 50 remain unemployed for over three years. This company have many secrets to hide that in the past I in the past have been forced to keep. Without a job I can’t afford solicitors .
