Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you today. How long have you worked there for?
Hi, I have worked for the company for 7 years. 2 years ago I was promoted to the team leader position.
Is your employer proposing to cut your salary?
They are checking the possibility of this with the headquarter in the USA.
HI they are not entitled to unilaterally vary your contract in this way. They could attempt to give notice of a change in terms and conditions to reduce your salary but you have the right to say that a reduction is unreasonable in the cirumstances and you do not accept the new terms.
Ultimately if they deduct without notice you will be able to bring a claim of unlawful deduction from salary. If they give notice of a change in terms and conditions then if you do not agree with them you could bring an unfair dismissal claim.
It is more common for an employer to ringfence a salary in these circumstances and to say that no further payrises will be awarded until you are within the correct capped salary.
Ok, many thanks. I had already thought that they would need to cancel my old contract and offer a new one for the new position. Just the salary detail was of course an unknown detail.
