In a couple of months time an existing employee from another part of the business will join my team of 8 people. Due to the fact that they are closing the other department the 'new' team member and myself dont have a choice.
The problem I now have, after finally received all the transfer details from HR is that:-
1) the person is on a higher salary
2) they are the same grade, but have never managed
3) they have agreed reduced working hours as part of the transfer.
To say I feel a bit pee'd off is an understatement.
Can my company honestly expect me to manage someone earning more than me??
