I'm coming to the end of my employment at an online bike retailer, the relationship has completely broken down.
My job title is lead developer. For my last two weeks, they've asked me to work in the warehouse, picking stock. This is just the latest in a list of petty malicious things.
My contract says that they can only ask me to do work that is commensurate to my job title. Also, I have a neurological pain condition that means I'm in constant pain, it's usually manageable but excessive physical exertion is something that can trigger it into flaring up to be much worse.
7 developers have left since December, none of them were asked to do anything similar.
Am I within my rights to refuse?
I took my contract to HR pointed out that warehouse picking wasn't commensurate with my job title. They had to contact HR at the parent company and they agreed with me so management have backed down.
Now they just have me sitting at a desk doing nothing 😂🤷♂️
