I've recently been 'selected' as one of a group of people to move to another dept for several months on secondment. I have no choice on this, I did not volunteer. So far, the only communication I have had is a dept email confirming me and the others moving til the year end. Secondment isn't specifically mentioned. The new role requires a CRB type check. I'm not particularly comfortable with this, but it is a requirement of the dept this role is in. However, I was given some forms last night and told they have to be completed ASAP. Having looked at them, one is the CRB type of check I was aware of. The other is a job application form.
I have worked at this company for 12 years and don't understand the need to complete a job application form for a secondment I do not actually want to do but have been given no choice about. I'm admittedly v v paranoid about what is really going on, and don't understand the need for me to complete the application form when I am an employee of some 12 years standing. I am also concerned with the implications this has on my current role which I've made clear I want to return to.
Can anyone advise me on the reason this might be required and also the implications on my current role if I've completed a job application form for this secondment?
