If an employee is no longer able to physically perform job

This answer was rated:

If an employee is no longer able to physically perform job duties, and is offered a position that pays less salary at the top of its wage range than the employee makes at the job they have been performing, but can no longer do, can the salary be reduced to reflect the work the employee is actually doing?
Thank you for contacting

Yes. The employer normally can reduce the employee's salary to reflect the work actually being done by the employee.

The employee could be entitled to a reasonable accommodation for their current job under the ADA. However, if there is no reasonable accommodation available and the employee cannot perform the required tasks, the employer may typically reduce the employee's wages if they must be reassigned.

Good luck and take care.
