When can employer change pay (increase or decrease)?
posted 3 years ago
I work in a company that does not guarantee any hours. Nonetheless, I've been working here for over a year and normally get several shifts a week. I suppose that I'm considered an employee because I receive T4. Once I was told that I can agree to a new contract at lower pay or have to return company assets. I responded that I'm interested in continuing working and they kept giving me shifts. Later I learned that everyone else got to keep the higher pay. Is this legal?
Can an employer decrease an employee's pay whenever they want (unless otherwise agreed to in a contract)? Out of curiosity can an employer increase pay at any time? Does it make a difference if the person receiving the payment is an employee or contractor?
