It may seem strange that an employee would agree, but companies often negotiate job security with a deduction from salary. For example, many companies should take different measures during the global pandemic as we know it, such as flexible working rules, reducing working hours and lowering wages in order to preserve as many jobs as possible. If you are an employee who is not covered by a collective agreement or employment contract, there is no set amount to pay. I am in Ontario, Canada, so I am not sure you can answer my question. My employer put me under contract and gave me a salary increase (oral agreement) of $5,000 per year. He didn`t really give me that raise and he kept paying me with the rate in the contract. Now he is cutting my salary and will pay me even less than what my contract says. I am an independent contractor. I was also paid several times too late, and I have not now received my salary for the previous month, nor have I received the difference between my base salary and my salary after the increase in recent months. My agreement on accepting a job was 16 per hour plus 75 non-refunds per week.
You took the reimbursement of my salary without notifying me? Is it legal? I`m in Pennsylvania If you`re an employee, your rate should stay the same no matter how many hours you work per week. This means that your employer can technically ask you to go to meetings outside of working hours, but they can`t cut your salary. When it comes to hourly employees, the FSL does not prevent an employer from reducing an employee`s hourly rate. As long as the new rate is at least a minimum wage, the employer can reduce the wage. In addition, most employees are recruited “on the basis of affection”,” which means that these employees do not have a formal employee contract and are not covered by a collective agreement. After authorization, employees can be dismissed, degraded and hours reduced or reduced by the employer. If you have an agreement with your employer, they must inform you of a salary change. If they don`t, it`s a breach of contract. If you are still worried about your rights, I suggest you speak to your human resources department or your local job.
