  • Job description change Pennsylvania Pennsylvania

    Recently, my boss informed me that my job description would be changing. I was hired as a Risk Manager and provided a job description when hired. Now I'm being forced to work this position part time plus another position as Program Manager part time. The Program Manager position is something I don't want to do and is not part of my original job description. Can they do this?

    Unless you have a bona fide contract or cba that specifically says otherwise, yes, they can.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

      I would think a written job description would be considered an agreement?

        Perhaps, but CBG said "bona fide contract" as in something recognized in a court of law. Traditionally that takes something more involved then a written job description. You might find the following of use.

          A written job description is rarely if ever contractual.
