Can you please offer your views on the following:
An employee has gotten a new job within the same organisation but in a new department. An exit date has been agreed, however, in the last moment, employee's current line manager says there is outstanding workload the employee needs to finish before moving on and contacts employee's new line manager and agrees to "loan the employee" until the work is completed. Employee wants to move on but is advised by HR that it is in their best interest to accept, otherwise it will put employee's capability into question.
What options do you think this employee has?
Has anybody had a similar experience?
It is an issues one of the organisations I am working with have at the moment. I'm not very comfortable with the way they have chosen to deal with this issue instead of looking to gain employee's cooperation.
