  • Not quite fired, but demoted and pay cut because of "admitted" error in HR Florida

    I was promoted to a higher paying security post, then made supervisor at that post, which resulted in even more money an hour, now HR is saying they have to move me and I wont be a supervisor anymore because of a mistake THEY overlooked on my driving record which doesn't let me drive at a post, this driving issue happened a whole year before I was hired with this company and was also stated on my application, this shouldve been looked at before hand months ago. Now I lose my pay rate and supervisor position cause of something HR made an error on, what rights do I have here?
    They're moving me to a decent paying post but not as supervisor, basically I'm not the boss anymore and have to take 2$ less an hour because of THEIR error, not mine. And I also recieved an email from their HR department even stating it was their fault.
    Now I bought a new car because I thought I could afford it, taking a 2$ an hour cut in pay cause of something they did, not me, is pretty huge, and while I can last for awhile, eventually I will hit negative in the bank cause of "them", I'm slightly over my bill vrs earning spending now where as before I was over and would have been fine.

    You have the right to find another job that is more to your liking.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

        Truthfully, it's either that (look for other employment) or accept the demotion &
        pay cut. Sorry.

          I'm sorry you're suffering, but the employer is doing nothing illegal.

            ok so what about this
            they admitted I'm not being covered on company insurance at this site (to drive the CTS) but they're making me stay there to train my replacement and 2 guards, so basically I'm not covered by (any) insurance while I'm doing this, is that legal too?
            This site is specifically 24/7 inside the vehicle too, it basically "is" the gate to let out or deny employee exits.
            Basically if something happens to me in the vehicle , its 100% on me. But being forced to wait 2 weeks to train these people?
            What worries me more is that its a 40k$ vehicle and the employees I'm guarding are mostly all/mostly ex-felons and immigrants so its not exactly a "low" chance of something happening

              What "insurance" are you talking about?
              I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

                What kind of insurance do you think you're supposed to be covered by? Workers comp? Liability? Auto? Health? It makes a difference.

                Requiring/requesting stay to train the replacements is legal, regardless. Depending on what insurance you mean, that might or might not be a problem, but unless you actually had a claim to submit would likely be a non-issue.

                  The company I work for requires you to be on their I guess "auto"? insurance to drive a company vehicle at any post/site, but I'm not on it cause of this driving incident 2 years ago, yet I'm being told to stay and train my replacements
                  I'm not complaining about training the new employees, what I'm saying is I'm being asked to do so while "not" being covered by my companies insurance, even though its policy that I have that insurance to even be at this site period.

                  And all in all because they can't insure me is the whole reason I'm being moved in the first place, so this is basically the heart of everything going on here. (Over a broken headlight ticket... I mean really) Tedious but anyway lol.

                    Since it's a company requirement and not a law, they may choose to waive the requirement for two weeks if they choose to. So yes, it's legal.

                      It might not be a good idea not to have you covered under their auto ins. but it's
                      not illegal.

                        It's not their auto insurance, it's their general liability coverage and in order to get more favorable rates from the carrier, your employer only puts employees in positions that require driving if they have a "good" driving history - no citations within "x" number of years, no DWI's, etc.

                        They are free to demote you to another position.

                          Let's put it this way. You benefitted from their mistake, for the time you were making more that you would have had they been aware of the limitation.

                            I guess in this job market we should be glad we have a job. You can keep this
                            job & in the meantime look for something that pays more. Don't quit before having
                            another job though or you most likely will not get unemployment ins. Looking for
                            another job or accepting the demotion with pay cut are the only options.

                            Sorry this happened though.
