A client got in touch with us last week, and it wasn’t good news.
It was from a lady who was off on maternity leave, and she’d discovered that while she was off, the company had created a new role and invited employees in the department to apply.
But here’s the problem – they offered out via work email, which obviously meant that this lady didn’t receive it.
Which in turn meant that she never got the opportunity to apply for the job, and raised a grievance as a result, citing a possible breach of the implied term of trust and confidence.
It might sound hard, but she’s right.
