Been given formal redundancy today, but feel that the so-called points system that they used to compare people for redeployment has been used unfair. Main issue is that I do still not understand that one of the colleagues that has been redeployed in the available positions managed to score enough points to get redeployed - is for some unclear reason higher valued.
Several colleges (3 so far of a formerly 20ish department - those are at the senior level and have been redeployed) have said they think it is wrong this person was redeployed instead of me (in other words: should not have scored better than me). In fact they think it is so unfair that I've not been given that job instead and offered to officially vouch for me.
We have the same amount of experience in a specialist field that the company is moving into, so that can't be the reason either. I know for a fact that the person in question has been told to put more effort in on more than one occasions. Also, since we've been working on the same projects a lot of the last years I've got a pretty good idea how supervisors rate me against that person (higher that is) and I know they mentioned some things about the person to the management as well.
Any people on here been in similar situations ? If so, what are your experiences ? Is there any point in appealing - does it ever have any result ? Also, what have I got to lose ?
How 'high up' can such an argument go ? Management's decision final ? It were the managers that took the decision.
