    Hi, my boss has told me that he wants me to train in a new employee to do my job if I get sick, I know this employee is on a lower wage and when I have him trained my boss will leave me go, can I refuse to train my replacement???

    Are you in permanent employment, have you completed any probationary period, if so how long ago.

    Perhaps you're misreading the situation but there's probably little you can do either way. If it was me and I was confident that this was the employers plan then I'd just go along with it but immediately do all I could to find new employment.

    Is it an existing employee or a new hire, I have seen this in companys can be good,There are 2 existing employees trained to do my job on lower wages,They are on my wage if they are doing my job if I am away,

    I would do it ( you have no choice i think unless you have a strong unionised workforce,) but make a note of conversations etc,.... just in case you need it in future if they try to let you go
