Legal Question

Asked on: 11/27/12, 10:15 pm

Our job recently presented us with a contract to sign within 20 days to see if we will except a 5 to 10k pay decrease per year. When we were presented with this contract we were told if we don't want to except the pay change we can go back to our old position keeping our current pay with no changes. As we draw nearer to the deadline they are now telling us if we want to go back to our old position there must be an opening there. Right now there are openings but our current department will not release us without finding a replacement with our like skills so we may lose our spot. We want to know if its legal for them to cut our pay. If we don't want to take the pay cut do they have to find us position elsewhere. Also, if they can hold us in the department that's cutting the pay and we have to make the same goals while waiting to be released can they cut are pay or because we didn't sign the contract and they won't release us do they have to continue to pay us our current pay & our we untitled to any pay incentive. Any help is greatly appreciated. This is affecting over half of my department.
