Hey guys/girls, I work for a coal mining company that is currently cutting almost all of its workforce to go into a care and maintenance style setup. I was told I would be made redundant as I was no longer needed in their plans. Because of this, I started looking for other work and have managed to get a few interviews. One of the interviews is with the same parent company but in a different industry. The GM of my coal company found out about the interview and has held off of giving me redundancy (was due to be made redundant by the 24/02/16) to see if he can get me transferred to the other arm of the company. My current position is as a supervisor and the job I am going for is as a maintenance electrician on about 40k a year less. I was under the impression that, under Employment Law, a transfer under these conditions must be to a similar job? Am I correct in assuming this?
