    Contract Law?

    I get paid for three different jobs where I work and the 3 combine to equal full time.

    I was just notified that starting 2/1 our company is going to hire an outside company to do one of my jobs and they are reducing my pay. Problem is, they are not reducing my amount by $300, which is how much I get paid for the job they are eliminating, they are reducing it by $800.

    I have a contract for those three jobs. What leverage do I have because of my contact? It doesn't seem right that they can reduce my pay, contrary to my contract, and give me just a few days notice.

    Re: Contract Law?

    Does it say the amount you are getting paid on your contract? If not, you're ****ed.

    Re: Contract Law?

    The questions I have:
    1. When does end contract end or expire? If it has already expired and they were paying you based on the old one you might be SOL.
    2. Is there a provision that for cost saving measures for the company the contract may be modified? This might be near the end.

    Re: Contract Law?

    I'm sure if they are writing these contracts they are writing plenty of provisions in them to allow them to do something like this. That being said, I would read through the whole thing and see what you can find.

    These are good questions, and to go along with #1, if the contract has no specific end date, it's not enforceable. Indefinite contracts are considered too vague.

    Re: Contract Law?

    Just ask a lawyer. It will be better than any advice you will receive here.

    The term of employment is important here.

    Nobody can reasonably answer this question without reading your contract.

    Re: Contract Law?

    There is no end date in my contract. I would think that it would be assumed that as long as the person is employed the contract is good. The fact is Im still employed. Im not fighting the loss of the one job as much because it wasnt that much and very likely is a loss cause, but the reduction of pay in the other two.

    And get this. The reason for it was not work quality but how far I live from work. That was never a condition of employment, ever.

    This doesn't seem like an employment contract. No one can really help you without reviewing its terms.
