My boss just told me he will be closing our small office in Sydney and moving all operations back to Melbourne. If I want to keep the job I will need to move down there. My job role will remain largely the same. I love Melbourne, but due to family reasons, I am unable to move and will have to reject the offer. How good a case do I have to seek a redundancy? How would I go about "asking" for redundancy in my written reply to the offer (For example "I cannot move...please grant me a redundancy")? We are part of a bigger company with more than 15 people, so they can't get out of paying my redundancy. Two other people cannot move (they have previously told the boss) and have already received their redundancy. Also, I have been with the company for 8-1/2 years. I know before I reach 10 years, if I resign on my own, I get no long service leave. Would my request for a redundancy as above count the same as a resignation? I forgot to mention the boss did offer some corporate relocation assistance (moving cost, temporary housing for a few weeks, doesn't sound like super-generous), but it is irrelevant as my family has no intention to move.
