My question refers to secondment within a workplace

1st Oct 2019

If a secondment is offered with a fixed start date of 1 week can the original employer demand 4 weeks notice.. knowing the offer will be withdrawn if I have to fulfill this? I am transferring from one secondment to another so not even working in my original position but for this 1 week between I was returned to my original post. I was told for 1 week .. but now 4 weeks notice is being indirectly mentioned others not myself. Where do I stand please? Also if my original department closes down where does that leave my secondment please?

    There are no employment laws which relate to secondments; you will need to check the terms of your contract(s).
