Hi,

 

My company (private nursing home) are restructuring. They currently employ 10 trained nurses and needed two voluntary redundancies to cover the new hours available. Four redundancies were applied for and apparently accepted. I was offered a night shift which I refused due to family commitments. However I informed them I could do either a 12hr day shift or 24hrs/week ( 2 x 12hrs). Due to the four redundancies there are available 1 x 24hr and 2 x 12hrs. However upon speaking to my manager today she informed me that I might have to re-apply for my job that I am already doing, giving me the impression that other staff are not re-applying. I thought this was not allowed. Any advice ??

 

Thank you.

Not really, because it isn't clear what is happening here. It may be that other staff have accpeted jobs that you have refused, and therefore do not need to be interviewed. But without greater clarity about why this was said and whether, and why, it applies only to you - we can't say.

Hi

Thanks for your reply,

 

I was offered a 12hr night shift ..I refused this due to family commitments and it is still available. Due to more redundancies being put forward (and accepted) than management anticipated there are 3 postions now available. (see 1st post). I have covered day and night shifts during my 4years with this company and my contract specifies day AND night shifts (not either/or). As far as I am aware three staff on nights and two staff on days have been accepted for the hours they have agreed to witout re-applying for their post. However the manager hinted that I might have to re-apply (should I take that as an insult!!! :-)) If the other staff have not have to reapply for their position..why should I? I thought that the same rules had to apply to everyone?

Thanks

No - not always. So the starting point here has to be to ask the managers why this is the case.
