Legal Question in Consumer Law in Virginia

How binding is a part-time contract (no benefits)? My organization has an employee that is doing a job that is being split. His current contract is good through May 2015. Due to some accounting issues, we feel it is important to compartmentalize some of the responsibilities with a new position. His salary will be decreased to compensate for the new employee ($20K to $14K, new position will refceive $6K). Can the organization restructure or void his current contract?

Merely compartmentalizing "some of the responsibilities with a new position"

does not sound like a restructure of your organization and therefore a viable

legal basis for voiding this employee's current contract with your

company (in my opinion).
