My employer is in supersaver mode and is increasingly turning to me for my thoughts on various matters rather than paying for professional advice, particularly in the areas of HR and Employment Law - including redundancy, CJRS and CJSS. Additionally, I've had to push back against attempts to underpay staff or overclaim government grants - I don't get direct requests to breach the rules, but rather I'm presented with dodgy arguments and wilful twisting of the rules to which 'No' is not taken as an answer and subsequent suggestions that we seek external professional advice are resisted.
Professionally, I do not want to be relied upon to to provide opinions in areas beyond my expertise, and ethically I don't want to be anywhere near deliberate breaches of rules and regulations. And I certainly do not want to be associated with any deliberate or knowingly false CJRS or CJSS claims.
I'm at the point of just walking out. Any suggestions - am I just feeling Covid fatigue? I'm guessing you all spend a certain amount of your time pushing back against clients with similar attitudes...
(Edit: yes, most of the pressure is verbal, but it's my name on CJRS claims!)
(Edit 2: regarding my role, I'm happy to provide advice and research these matters, but when pushed out of black & white into grey areas, I'd prefer to take advice from experts)
