Job Transfer Rights

What are my rights regarding a transfer request?

I presume this listener is talking about a transfer of employment, in that they have asked to be transferred to (say) a branch office where the company is doing business. 

 

The answer is, it depends on what is in the contract about transfer policy.  This might also be in the company employment manual or other company policy document. 

 

In the absence of written policy, then this listener has no rights, provided that they are not being discriminated against in their transfer request and that that transfer request is taken seriously and a proper answer is given to them regarding their application.

The issues raised in the answer to this NewsTalk listener's question are dealt with in a general way as can only be the case on live radio. Before relying on the advice given in this answer, whether you heard the broadcast or are for the first time reading the issues here please do not rely on the broad advice given. For a detailed professional opinion please consult a qualified legal advisor and for further details read our disclaimer on the Home Page.
