  • HR Policy not being followed

    I work for a not for profit company here in Oklahoma. Love the company, love my job. But, I am required to take call for this company. My location is considered "rural" which when I am on call we are guaranteed at least a one hour minimum of call back pay. The "mothership" of the company gets a two hour minimum of call back pay when called in to work. Recently I found in the HR policy on the computer under the "pay" category section there is a subsection labeled "fair". In this subsection it CLEARLY states "pay will be the same for jobs that require the same work and qualifications, no matter where the job is located within the organization." When this issue was confronted to the big wigs, they had no answer. With this policy, are we not entitled to the same minimum call back of 2 hours? This makes me feel like my time away from my family is not as valuable as those in the "urban" location. And conveniently, today, the HR policy on the computer was changed to read "will be fair within the organization." That is all that it stated. Nothing was in there about beind fair across the board as it had read previously. Is it legal for the company to do this? Could we be entitled to anything?

    Change policies at a moment's notice (thanks to you pointing out the inconsistency), absolutely.

    I doubt it, especially as you were being paid more than is required by law.
