    Anyhoo, I'm actually supposed to be working, I hardly ever post here.. must be having a tough day screwing over employees.
    Spot on 😉

    @Beljane

    being forced to re-apply for a job you have been doing for a long time is stressful at the best of times.

    Doubly so when you dont trust the people conducting the process

    Just as some of you say it's out of line her saying that, or they're just trying to do their job, it's actually possible, that in this one location/department/area, these particular HRs are cr@p or dodgy!

    Good advice already given regarding application, resume, KSC.

    Also good idea applying for other jobs.

    And finally, if your DH misses out and truly believes something dodgy happened, being a Govt department there would be policies regarding recruitment and appealing decisions.
    We actually talked about appeal avenues if he doesn't get it just this morning! He has a blemish free record, fully trained, he is a sworn officer, and has acted in higher duties many times. He also has some clients that specifically request him for overtime jobs. He has very good grounds for taking them to task if he doesn't get his job back.

    I am actually surprised that Govt departments are allowed to do it that way.

    It is essentially just a work-around to get out of unfair dismissal type claims and/or redundancy payments. They are permanent full time employees who are continuing and ongoing ... but the government is putting them on fixed term contracts purely to limit their responsibilities.

    There is a place for fixed term contracts - if the work itself is only required for a fixed term or the employer has an end date for that work ... but when its ongoing - just the employer doesnt want the comittment of a permanent employee ... its certainly grounds for appeal

    I'm not sure if all departments work the same but in ours we have a compulsory grievance period where the unsuccessful candidates can appeal.

    It's not that simple unfortunately. Bottom line it comes down to whether or not your DH was THE best applicant for the job, not whether or not he was performing exceptionally well in his job.

    I am sorry you are going through this. Job uncertainty sucks. Xx

    It's also not unheard of for employees to have a biased/over-inflated opinion of their own performance and then jump to conclusions when they receive an accurate performance review. It's a well known fact bullying complaints go through the roof during performance appraisal time - coincidence I think not!
