Is this even fair?Watch
Cutting a long story short, my boss was unwell and had to be off work so I was expected to do her job as well as mine. This was approx for 5 months.
My boss then come back and was put into another sector, again I am still being expected to do her job.
I’m getting no benefits, no extra pay, no nothing. Just more stress and not even any thanks. It sounds like I’m being totally mugged off. Does this even sound legal?
If I say something I’ll get shot down and probably get told to go look for another job.
Really you should be looking for a new job if they don't care, you will eventually go under due to stress probably.
I would ask politely and just say you've taken on the responsibility for 6 months and you would like it to be formalised and paid or for them to hire someone to do it so you can lose the extra stress
if they say no... You have 6 months management experience now, go find a job which will pay you for it!
