I have been performing duties outside the scope of the role I was hired to do. My role has evolved from a simple data analyst role to complex IT role. I work for a government department so each role is classified into levels. I recently asked to be reclassified to the same level as individuals that perform similar roles to me in the organisation and was met with a no, we are restructuring and you will be moved under the restructure. There is no appetite to reclassify your role.
I have built and now run/maintain a business critical system for the organisation which is far beyond the scope of my job description. Based on the conversation I had, I will not be rewarded for this and since I asked for the reclassification, I am now being punished and moved to a different department where I will have to maintain the business critical system as well as perform other complex tasks still beyond the scope of my job description.
I know this sounds petty but should I just turn off the system and the teams I support can work off spreadsheets like they previously did? They will lose all their performance reporting and work allocation system. I will still do the tasks in my job description but nothing more. I have been trying to get this role reclassified for more than 2 years now and each time I get given a bullshit story as to why they won’t do it. I enjoy this role but it’s time for me to move on. In the meantime, anyone here ever go nuclear and stop performing higher duties and, if so, what were the consequences or results from doing so.
