    I am a supervisor. The employer is cutting back on staff and they have put me in a role that I have not done before and is of a less grade. Very physical and demanding job that I did not sign up for. The department that I am in now provided no training to work with hot machinery and a lot of WH&S issues.

    What can I do under employment law?

    Sounds like they have breached your employment contract by unilaterally changing your substantive role I presume without your agreement ?

    You can bring a claim that the employer has either made your position redundant without consultation, and you will be entitled to payment for that or the alternative, that the employer has breached your contract and you are entitled to payment.

    You would need to file the proper application to be taken seriously.
