What does "Y rated" mean? I was recently demoted and told I would be "Y rtaed". What exactly does this mean?
Hello and welcome to JustAnswer.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation and hope I can help.

Do you have an employee manual or other document from your employer about the terms and conditions of your employment?
A Y-rating is a rating that is given to employees by an employer when they are classified downward, for considering an employee's merit, or lack thereof, in the demotion.

It typically means that y-rated employees will be frozen at their current salaries. Y-ratings are also typically used for reorganization and to distinguish from demotions for cause.
