Last year I agreed a 12, month career break with my employer. During this time I was abroad and it was agreed that I would contact my employer 2 months before returning to my position.
As I was in a remote area with very little phone signal I contacted my employer via email stating it was intention to return to my job as agreed. I also asked if my position was still available or if any other positions were vacant (this was discussed before I began my career break) as my employer had said that he would be recruiting someone to cover my role on a permanent basis. I did not receive a response. I also contacted HR and did not receive a response.
I then received in email in February asking what my intentions were and if I would be returning to the organisation. I was due to return to my role in January and I received this email 2 weeks after my return to work date. I then responded stating I was ready to return to work immediately. My employer still hasn't responded in over 3 weeks.
I have sent 2 more emails to the HR asking for clarify on the matter but have heard nothing. Obviously now I am concerned as I have no other source of income and feel that I am being ignored deliberately in the hope I will resign. I am going to contact the HR department on Monday to find out what is going on as it has been 3 weeks since I responded saying I was ready to return to work. I was just wondering if anyone has any thoughts on how I would deal with this if I am dismissed.
