You come to work one day and your boss walks into your office. He/She tells you that the Company is “restructuring”. He/She says there are going to be changes to your position. Your salary is going to be reduced and you are going to be reassigned or transferred. Your title is going to change. Perhaps you are told that going forward you will report to the person you trained last year. Maybe the office is moving to another city or town and you do not want to move there.
Can the Company force you to accept whatever the changes that directly affect your position? Can you tell them that you refuse to accept the changes and demand that they pay you severance? Can you quit and sue for wrongful dismissal? Do you have to continue working for them “under protest” after telling them you refuse to accept the changes? How long do you have to tell them you refuse the changes before you lose your legal rights?
