My job moving to another department.

    I wonder can anyone help me. I was informed today that my role is moving to another department. From IT to Engineering. They are trying to say that the job role has not changed but my reporting structure has.

    I am wondering can I look for redundancy in this case.

    There's no redundancy. It's just a department change. Organisational change isn't redundancy.

    Would I get anywhere by arguing that it is operational change by asking for job description and trying to find differences. Would this get anywhere.

    Because whilst they are saying its only reporting structure I am of the opinion that they haven't thought about the role details within the new department and definitely day to day tasks and responsibilities will have changed.

    Be careful of what is called a CLM, a career limiting move where you rock the boat unecessarily.

    Reorganisations are a fact of life and no company is going to beheld back by one individual who does not like the change. You either move forward with the company, you get sidelined and get managed out or you move on. Them is the choices.

    They're doing what companies do every day. If you don't like change then look for something else. Reorganisation is a normal part of business and working life. It just sounds like you're looking for a way out with a payout. Not going to happen. We all have to adapt to reasonable organisational change in our careers.
