  • Cut in pay Virginia

    I am employed by a cleaning company. I was given a promotion to inspector, with a salaried pay, and benefits. The owner did away with this position. He in turn made me head trainer, but now I am hourly, still with benefits. I am making less money, and doing more work. I did read in a forum that you have to have a signed contract, in order to be able to force them to pay the salary given previous..(correct me if that is wrong). I have a a hand signed paper from my office manager and I need to know if it is a legal contract...I will paste a copy of the letter, minus the hand written signature, please tell me if this is good enough for me to fight for my pay....

    This sounds more like a job description or offer letter which would not cut it as a contract but really, you should take it to a lawyer who practices contract law in VA to be sure.
    I post with the full knowledge and support of my employer, though the opinions rendered are my own and not necessarily representative of their position. In other words, I'm a free agent.
