I finished for holidays last wed and my boss told me it was 85% certain I would be put into a secondment placement until the end of the year. I've just got a text saying its definite. I've been given no choice in this, and I've told them I didn't want to do this. I don't know how this works but I don't know how to get my return to my current job in writing/assurances over date of return etc. How do I go about asking for the right agreement/in writing on my position as it stands?
I have had nothing in writing. The role is similar but different - my knowledge of the subject I'm moving to deal with is pretty non existent but my level/grade stays the same. My contract I'm sure says they can move you as and when they want etc. so I can't, as far as I know, refuse this move. My role - the dept is losing work so they are reducing the work to accommodate the loss of staff but there are people who are same level/grade as me staying but I've been picked to move as I'm part time - 25 hrs per week.
I think you need to basically ask for a secondment agreement/letter confirming the details of your secondment, including dates and other details, and including information about what happens at the end.
