Customer Question
Hello: I started...

Hello: I started this last evening, then had to stop. So today I am back to this. I have worked for this company since 2003, starting as a clerk in a gift shop, then in 2012, I became a supervisor of this gift shop with my own office. Circumstances have changed and the job I do now has been reduced in hours. I work 40 hours a week at x dollars in pay. They would like me to work in the gift shop again at a lesser rate of pay but still be the supervisor. And I have been very accommodating when someone is sick, etc, I work their shift for that pay, not my pay. They have indicated that I can replace the full time staff person in the gift shop but at that rate of pay. I am 68 years old managing a retail entity and restaurant POS (8stations), I am the buyer for the gift shop among other duties.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you discussed this with a manager or HR? Or with a lawyer?

I do not know what to do?

Lawyer's Assistant: Are you an "at will" employee? Do you belong to a union?

No union. I don't think I have a contract either. I fell into the Sup position because I knew the former POS computer program and had the skills required. I have since loaded a new POS program and manage all the data, etc.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I do not want to take the job away from the full time staff person. That being said, I enjoy working in the gift shop. My choice is to downsize my hours and go home or try to work night sifts and weekends, which I prefer not to work mega night hours and weekends.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
