    I am a salary employee and in addition had a separate contract with the same agency for additional services. My contract was not renewed and my employer wants to add these 'services' to my current job description. Can they do that?

    Once your other contract expires, and is not renewed, then yes, then can change your job description.

      I just want to clarify, I'm an accountant (salary position) at this agency and have a separate contract for translating (I'm a free-lance translator.) They did not renew my contract for translating and want to add this job to my current 'accountant' job description. Can they do this?

        Contract

        Yes, they certainly can. Your employer can determine the responsibilities of any position in their company.

          I'm sorry, I just want to make sure I understand...
          It's okay for my employer not to pay me for translating? So, would it be best not to inform your employer of other skills you might have (completly different from what you might have been hired for?)

            Translation

            Yes, your employer can require that you perform additional responsibilities that were not original intended. On the other hand, if those additional responsibilities are assigned as a way to cause undue burdens on the employee and are assigned just because that person's race, national origin, age, religion, disability, gender, etc., it is illegal.

            Let me know if you have any other questions.

              You are getting paid for the translating, only now it is included in your other salary.
              Did you try to negotiate for a raise in pay to include the additional responsibility?
              If not, you may want to as long as you don't feel it will jepoardize your job; I realize the economy is very tough right now so I don't want to suggest anything that will get you in hot water.
              Best wishes, keep me informed.
