I have worked for my employer for 13 months as asales rep on

Resolved Question:

I have worked for my employer for 13 months as asales rep on a basic salary of£20,000 + commission my sales figures have not been brilliant due to no training whatsoever on the products I need to sell to achieve target, on some of the contracted services I have experience but could not achieve target on these alone and need to sell the products which I do not understand to achieve the set target. My employers have now cut my salary to£15,000 and given me until January to achieve target, which taking into account December as I sell business to business I know this is unachievable.

Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you today. What would you like to know about htis?

Customer:

can they legally do this in england

taratill :

The answer to this is yes and this is based on your length of service. In the UK until you have been employed for 2 years you have limited employment rights. This means that an employer can terminate your employment for any reason so long as it does not amount to discrimination, contrary to the Equality Act 2010, which would be based on age, race, religion, sex, disability, pregnancy or potentially for raising a health and safety complaint. If you had over 2 years service the answer would be different as , once you have adequate service, the employer cannot reduce your salary in this way.

I am sorry that this is not the answer you were looking for.
