    Hi chaps, I've been less forthcoming with comments recently because I've been very busy at work and stressed to the 'nth' degree by a planned move which will mean that my weekly commute for the past ten years is apparently going to become my daily commute. Will be taking professional legal advice on constructive dismissal, but no consultation has as yet taken place. I'm trying to stay positive!

    Sorry to hear your news. I'm sure your already this way inclined given your positive approach, however at times like this always look for the opportunities - they will be there, you just need to be open enough to be able to see them, and courageous enough to take action on the right ones. Best of luck.

    Aw, thanks Bobby and John. You can imagine that being so far away from home with a rather sick husband is worrying. For years I commuted weekly to Manchester, Scotland, Isle of Man, Hull, but for the past ten years I've been in Preston (except trips to Dubai and repeated trips to SouthAfrica, before diagnosis). Now I'm seriously stressed as K is due for a new hip if his heart can take it. The Anaesthetist is due to give the word soon.

    Sounds a tough situation. All the best for you and your husband. As for making the best of the options (including discovering your own ), where there is a will, there is a way!

    I have a specialist employment lawyer contact based in Ipswich if you want his contact details.
    Free initial consult. A couple of different no win no fee schemes.
    You may also have legal cover on your home insurance policy, but with ours we found that it doesn't kick in until tribunal case lodged.

    Very sorry to hear of your situation .

    Although practicalities are important , health , life and loved ones are much more important than work .

    You can always find other work , but you cannot replace that one special person in your life .

    When one of my jobs years ago was relocated, and travel was impossible daily, I was advised I could claim under something called T.U.P.E I seem to recall. I was successful, and it was barely contested. Still did not make up for losing a job I enjoyed, and having to look for something else etc.

    Sorry to hear that

    My other half is going through exactly the same process with her " responsible, flexible " employer

    What for 3 years has been 2 days based in a London office is being changed by a new boss to 4, we live in Devon

    Solicitors engaged but it's already changed to negotiations regarding an acceptable settlement, which is not what she wants as she liked working there, but now staying is not an option

    Good luck to you

    Firstly sorry to Lisa lorry. Really sh! tty to have problem pile on problem. Try to focus on the main ones, Lisa. People are important. The rest is just so much rubbish.

    Neil, Transfer of undertaking protection of employment is specific, as I recall, to sale/ purchase of a business so new owner cannot just sack existing employees. On the whole good legislation but means when you buy a business that's failing because of the staff, you have to manage their, ahem, exit, carefully.
