cut in pay question

dis is fo friend. non union job.

say you got a onjob injury. So your performance isn't 100%. So they want to pay you less. Or have you doing other stuff with a paycut.

is this against the law?

possibly. Are they full time? Have they taken more than 12 weeks off for FMLA? Are they in IL?

I don't ride, I cook!

this is in illinois. doctors notice of the injury. they are full time. As far as I know, I don't think there was a medical leave. And no surgery to fix the injury.

Example(fawk i blew my knee at work, they can do surgery to fix it, but i can still work with bad knee)

They would have to officially change your title/job position and they could adjust the pay based on that...

HOWEVER, since this was an on the job injury, they should walk on eggshells... You should be getting some sort of compensation on the other side of the coin... but while trying to get that all settled, it's very dumb of them to 'cut your pay'.... there could be potential lawsuit ramifications there.

Everyone Exaggerates

We're being taken for a ride... agaaaaaaain.....

if this injury is something that could require surgery i think that it should be pursued now rather than later. employer would be responsible for all costs including rehab therapy. not sure but i believe they would receive a certain percentage of their pay while off to recover and then light duty till cleared to work. i say light duty cause this sound like some kind of trade work.

Please refer to Post #3. First paragraph, First sentence, First clause, first 4 words



I have to find out if surgery is really needed. I think the doctor said if it got worse, it would be required.



My buddy tried suing his job, but got no where because it was tough to prove wear and tear was from work or from being old. But I find this situation BS since the high seniority and years in company. And they want to drop pay salary.

Tell him to talk to an injury lawyer instead of his friend asking the question on a motorcycle message board

I'm sure he can find an injury lawyer who will give a free first consult.

BTW peoples salaryies get cut all the time because of the slow economy.

If he's performance is affected due to an on the job injury, the company is still required to make up the difference. Send him/her to a lawyer to have the lawyer kick some ass.

Namaste

To the times I'll never remember, with the friends I'll never forget.

You don't even need to lawyer up to make shit happen. File a work comp claim to take care of the medical portion, and the claim handler for the insurance company might be able to make the company realize that what they are doing is illegal.
