How can employer ask me to work on a larger scope than agreed in employment contract

11 Aug 2022 #1
Hello Friends,
Need your help!!

It's been over 2 years that I am working in a much larger scope than what I agreed with my employer. In fact, I am working there since 2010 but after Corona things started to become really heavy on me. So far, I had been quite professional and accommodating but now it is taking a big toll on my personal life.

I wanted to know what could be my "labor rights" in this context.

For e.g., can I ask for a reasonable raise that could justify my extended responsibilities? Or could I start to reject any work that is not in my agreed scope legally/contractually speaking?

How could my employer counteract to my demands?

Thank you for your opinions.

can I ask for a reasonable raise

You should have done it much earlier. Now it can be a bit too late - I have just read an article warning of recession in Poland and the job market which is ceasing to be friendly to workers coz companies are planning to lay off people.

Our rightard PiS has led to this situation - in good times, they squandered billions on benefits instead of investing wisely or saving them for bad times like now. Bad times have come and everybody will pay for PiS` incompetence.

I hope PiS voters will go first.

Expenses are so huge for a state, it makes No sense to save it. Smarter to invest them,

Partially own to a small degree a lot of foreign companies in countries that doesn't threaten Poland or doesn't see Poland as a threat then saving up Złotówki which inflate over time anyways

No sense to save it

A country can save by buying gold, for example.

That is severaly outdated way of thinking, got to remind you of Poland's gold during ww2? Incredibly risky investments

Compare that to investing in 2% in every possible company in latin America. Germany or Russia would have hard time grabbing that...

If you want a pay rise then it's best to just ask for one rather than start a legal dispute. Also if you want less responsibility then ask them.

Legally you are protected if they ask you do something outside the scope. In real life it's not going to happen - courts or lawyers won't be interested in such trivia and will expect you to sort it out "w cztery oczy" with your boss.

It sounds like they are losing staff so prepare yourself for a meeting with your boss and be clear about what you are asking for and what you will do if they so no.
