Please HELP, My Boss Slashed My Salary Unjustly by PhenomenalAustin: 8:34pm On May 19
I'm sorry for bothering you all but please hear me out.

I'm posting this on behalf of my uncle.

I was working in a company, and was being paid 40,000 a month not including other allowances. A new company called me to work with them as an Officiator and we negotiated a salary of 60,000.

Both companies produce the same products.

They agreed to pay and I resigned from the other company. I started my new job in Oct. last year and was paid all through Oct., Nov. and Dec.

Earlier this year, January precisely, I had a little issue with my boss. The misunderstanding was that I complained to him that the chemicals we use during productions was adversely affecting me. In the previous company where I worked, I didn't work during the production of the products as I was allergic to the chemicals used.

On a working day, during the time for production, he asked me to join in the production but I politely reminded him about my allergies to the chemicals being used. He commanded me while shouting that I should go back and work. I normally have heart burns, dizziness and severe migraines when I'm exposed to these chemicals.
I left during production as the chemical adversely affected me.

The next day, he came and asked if I had finished the work he commanded me to do the previous day. I apologised to him that I didn't because of the chemicals rxns which he knew about. He didn't say anything but from his body language, I thought everything was alright.

I returned the following day, only to receive a 2-week suspension notice. I was surprised and asked about my offense which the General manager told me, the boss was really pissed and so mad at me which I also explained to the GM and he was really surprised as I did no wrong. Nonetheless, he advised I serve my suspension sentence.

After suspension, I was given a review of my salary and my salary was slashed by 20,000 to 40,000 because of the issue...

I was really confused and bewildered because out of the revised 40,000 I receive per month, the company takes 15,000 out of it for my rent loan...

I've been apologising while also pleading with my boss to reconsider his decision as I'm a family man and 25,000 realistically, will not be sufficient for I and my family. He hasn't yet changed his stance.

I'm so confused, please I need your opinions, suggestions and help whatsoever..

I'm sorry for bothering you.. Thanks

Please help me out please... My uncle is really down at the moment...


Thanks!

You can not earn 100% of your salary as long as you were placed on suspension.

If by the end of the month same amount of 40,000 less Housing loan is paid,you can fall back to your appointment letter where terms of employment and renumeration is clearly defined and seek for legal action against the company.

This is a master and slave issue.

All men should vow to be masters, not slaves.

If you know you have lots of responsibilities or will have lots of responsibilities, try to be a master at all cost — legally.

If you know you won't have any responsibility in life and all money you make is for you and you alone till the end of time, then be a slave.

Just be a master first and don't worry about others yet.

Honestly I share your plight, but the truth is many of those bosses don’t like objections and all even if it’s at the expense of your well being, I would advice you to probably get something
(maybe a suit) to prevent direct exposure to the
Xcals, as per slashing of salaries you need to review your contract with the company if that persists!!!
I wish you luck!

Soorry o but unless if you have another job elsewhere, just take the small pay and manage it.

And try to make peace with your boss. It will do you a lot of good.

Nobody can help you here

Let's remove emotions here, the loan money is what you've collected and used already.
The switch of job isn't the issue because, what you weren't doing in the other job is what you don't want to do in the current job which means equal pay on both sides. I'm sure what your boss wants you to do is an important aspect of your job which you're refusing to do - forget the earlier discussion - he won't employ someone else to do it or do it himself!

If you insist on doing the job and your health deteriorates badly, do you think the company will foot your medical bill? If no, then that pay cut is the price to pay for your health.

Besides, is there no way you can use some kinda equipment to protect yourself during production?

What's tha business?

The increase in salary is why you should be there during the chemical mixture. You made your choice,. Life's not a bed of roses.

Nawa oh.

Firstly do you have an agreed and signed contract? If you do, contracts stipulate what is required from you (your job description) as an employee and what is required from your employer.

If you do, does your JD explicitly state that you would work during production? If yes, then you don't have any case as you consented to it. If no, then you can always make reference to your JD and contract.

just pray it's a one time thing.

that's how people jump from thing to another be it work or relationship without asking for God's direction.

Just bear with it, and let God direct you.

The grass is not always as green as it looks on the other side. It is better to eat garri and be at peace than to be eating chicken with pain! I would advise u send a mail or call to him and explain your plight. Just appeal to his human heart while u start looking for another job immediately!

So so sorry but that's the disadvantages of working with a one man business, authority to hire and fire lies in the hands of one person.

Morso you are lucky to still have the job back cos most suspensions I know leads to sack afterwards.

You have no choice than to accept it, but start looking for somewhere else asap.

God will see you through
