Thank you for your quick response. May I ask you some further questions?
Is it OK if my company sends individual letters to the ones we want to cut their salary only (i.e. we don't want to communicate to the whole organization that we are cutting salary of some people) and ask them to keep this information confidential?
Will the reason for cutting salary to allign salary range/grade between a specific group of employees (which means some employees in the same group have a pay cut while some others of the group don't, depending on their current salary and their performance) a valid one?
