I work for a large supermarket chain and i've had the job since July last year, i recently finished uni and wanted to transfer my job back home. I discussed this with my line manager (A) who spoke to his manager (B) about it. Manager B then called the store nearest my home address and made enquiries, i was told that there was a position available for me there and given forms to fill in.

 

I duly filled in the forms and returned them to A who signed them and sent them to the personnel manager ©. The next time i was in A asked me to confirm with C that the forms were recieved so I called her department and I was told that the form was on Cs desk.

 

On my last day at the store I was told that there was no longer a position for me at the store i wanted to transfer to by C so C arranged for me to meet her after my shift to discuss my options. When I went to meet C she had gone home early and had not left a message for me.

 

The next day I went to the store to talk to C and she told me that she had found me a job at another store which was on a public transport route from my new home, she said that someone from this store would call to talk to me.

 

That was 19 days ago, I have been calling C but she rarely returns my calls so on Tuesday I went to my old store (which is miles away) and spoke to C, she gave me the details of the contact at the new store. I called the new store on Wednesday and was told that my contact was not in, i left a message for her to call me back and when she didn't call me back today I called the store and spoke with someone else from personell who did not know anything about a transfer.

 

I called C again and was told that the person I called was indeed in the know and C promised to sort it, she hasn't called me back.

 

Meanwhile the company are paying me out of my holiday allowance, i don't like this as I am going away in August and would like my holiday time then.

 

I'm at my wits end, what can I do? I am a member of the legal club which i paid through my wages but i now realise that i was never given the contact details to get in touch with a lawyer, I am not a member of a union.

 

If anyone needs to know what company i work for i am happy to tell through PM.

I suppose one option would be to consider submitting a grievance to the person specified in your contract / handbook.

 

The crucial thing for me from your post, is that you say you started in July last year, and as such you currently have less than (just) one years service with the company.

 

If you wanted to bring a claim for unfair dismissal, then you normally need 12 months service to bring this claim.

 

Thus, you may want to consider continuing to turn up for work at the old store until you have been there one year if this is feasible.

Hi elche, I realised the sticky point with my less than one years service. I can't turn up at my old work because i did a job that requires legal sign off (specialised department) so i can't do my job any longer. Even if I could do it I can't get to old work, i can't drive and it's over 40 miles away from home with no public transport on a Sunday which was/is one of my contracted days.

 

They are still paying me so I'm not fired and according to HR at my old work there is defo a transfer at the new place.

 

I called ACAS and they said that they shouldn't be paying me out of holiday but do i challenge that now or after i sign my new contract? Don't want to end up out of work through this!
