Hi all Would appreciate any professional advice you could give me. Around 2 years ago I was put into a higher pay grade after submitting to my manager and HR a list of all the extra responsibilities I had taken on over the years. At the same time my job title was changed to Manager. A few days ago my boss called me and said "somebody" had pointed out that this didn't fit with the job I was doing and really it should be Team Leader. Everything else would remain the same in terms of pay and benefits but my title would change. I was taken aback by this as the Team Leader title implies a less responsible role. All I got as explanation was a 2 paragraph job description for both roles and there was 1 aspect about negotiating terms with suppliers that didn't fit but also a lot more I do that isn't listed in either role. I can't imagine this has come from my boss as he's sideways been pleased with my work and he is sensitive enough to know how demoralising this would be for me, especially after converting for furlough etc. If it had been spotted by HR for any reason I don't see why he wouldn't have explained that. Also, I don't imagine they would know exactly what my job entails to question it. In any case, it's just a title to anyone but me so I don't think they would worry. So I have to assume there is an ulterior motive or that somebody else within the organisation has objected (there's a bit of toxicity). I have asked for full job descriptions to compare so I can challenge this but in the meantime how far can I push to get answers as to why this is happening (if, as I suspect, it stems from a colleague with a grudge) as I am so demoralised they would do this and my instinct was to hand in my notice. Thank you in advance.
