JA: Hello. How can we be of help?
Customer: I was employed by the same company for 13/14 years. On my original contract that I signed in 2004 I was entitled to be reimbursed for all mileage incurred in my own vehicle. This company has over the years made changes to reimbursement on mileage. They have stated that these are new "mandates". There has been no consultation on these changes, they have just been applied and when I questioned if this is appropriate I have been told that this is a new "mandate". My question is can they do this?
JA: Have you documented this or discussed it with HR?
Customer: discussed with managers
JA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?
Customer: guaranteed 30 hours or 60 per fortnight. I can send you a copy of the original contract
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
