  • Change in compensation Ohio

    I have been paid salery plus commission since being hired by company and without notice or warning I was informed that effective Aug 1st I would be paid commission only. Is there any law or regulation that prvents this? I asked employer for the changes in writing and was refused. All other personel are still being paid salery plus commission. Do I have any rights with regards to this issue?

    On what date were you told this? Do you have an employment contract?
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

        Then yes, it is legal to change your pay structure going forward.
        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.

          However, I do have a job offer letter. That spells out the compensation as follows.
          Annual Salary plus % of gross profit + auto allowance.

          "To be reviewed quarterly with the possibility of going to commission only plan that provides additional reward for higher profit sales at a mutualy benificial time".

            Which only weakens your case as you were told up front that this might happen.

              An offer letter does not normally rise to the level of a binding contract. You can have it reviewed by an attorney if you wish, but I would not be optimistic.
