  • Pay cut. hourly + commission...losing commission California

    So i work as a service tech. for a national company. I get paid 10 dollars and hour plus commission. My commission is based on how many stops/services i do each month. Lately, my services have added up to about 16000 at the end of the month. I get 20% of the difference between 12000 to 16000 (or unlimited if i made more on my stops). So my 10/hr + about 800 in commission.

    Since i'm doing such an awesome job (patting myself on the back) they have decided to hire someone else and take over 3000 off of my route and give it to a new guy.

    So i'm taking a pay cut. I don't want to, but they have decided to give my stops to someone else. Since my base pay doesn't change, is it legal to take my commission away from me? Are they required to raise my hourly rate to make up for the lack in my checks?

    Absent a contract or collective bargining agreement, employers can generally change compensation packages on a go forward basis.

      If there were more money coming, they would have me beg for relief rather than begging for more money. I'm at 16K, the new guy would start around 7 (3 from me and 4 from the guy in the next area). There has been only work for one person for the past year. Mo Money hasn't been coming and won't be coming. To get that kind of money back (3K) it will take over a year. I'm not holding my breath.
