Hi guys.

My brother has just informed me that his current position has been removed from his company's structure and he has been offered another position in a totally different role with less money. The question is, will he loose his severance pay if he declines the other position. He is good at what he does and wants to find another job doing the same as he is doing now.
Cheers

Greetings Troys 2.8GU,
In the metals award, if he rejected the new job he would still be entitled to his severence pay as his position is bieng made redundant. I believe from memory then if he takes on the new role and after a period (3 months?) he does not like it he is still entitled to his severence pay. But if he decides to accept the new role and stays on, his severence monies will be at that rate of pay.
Can you say in what field your brother works? is he on award or EBA or Individual contract? all these things will have a bearing on his entitlements.

Hi truck,
He is like myself, in retail. But they want to move him to the warehouse as a lackey. I have offered him a job with me until he finds another, so he's covered. But he's just worried he will loose his severance pay.
Cheers
Troy

Legal advice is often worth what you pay for it..........get onto fair work australia, a union or solicitor for advice mate, no disrespect to the members here but employment law is complicated and well meaning advice could see him disadvantaged.

Also if possible become a union member, because they have all of the legal people available for free, in the finanace industry they do. It might cost a 1 years membership and this is tax deductable.
