Question about my WA work place contract of employment My

Customer Question

Question about my WA work place contract of employment
My employer has told me they no longer have my contract of employment from 2007, if I ever had one as I can't find mine either. The dispute I'm having is I was salaried staff when I joined and only have the 2007 advert off seek, clearly advertising a salaried position. Somewhere along the line my employer has changed me to an hourly paid employee without my knowledge.
They have offered me an hourly paid and a staff contract but require me to prove my
contract was Staff.
last Friday I was given a confirmation of employment letter with two paragraphs I object to, one is Stand down, it says when there is a down turn in work I may be stood down and required to take all my outstanding annual leave and if exhausted I will have to take unpaid leave.
My question is what is my best coarse of action in replying to this confirmation letter which is signed by a director ( who is the MD) and the chief financial officer with no signature requirement by me.
kind Regards
Steven Beardsley
