Since the world ecconomy is going bad in condtions the companies are redicung the staff in all sector. Ecconomy crisis is heavy throughout the world. As per the lates report for every 13 minutes of time span some is loosing the job throughout the worls.

If you are well confident you can try for new job without loosing the present job. you rechech the appointment letter which was given your company regarding the same.
all the best

Variable part of your pay is "Variable" and depending on situations , that can be reduced or made Zero.
Fixed Part reduction often comes in 'unusal' business environment (like the one we are "In") and that is often given by company as a 'Re Negotiated' employment agreement , likely to come with reduction of working days or for temporary period or just x % of your original salary instead of complete 'Lay Off'.
Hope this clarity helps.

Do you use any software for managing Hr processes. If you are using that then you can write there in employee profile that he is not doing well in so and so dates regarding some work, if irregular, not responding well for the queries, etc. so if they ask you then you can show them their total profile. In our company we will do so...we reduced salary for 4 employees because of their irregularity, not managing time,considering several things we reduced.ok.Bye. And as per the rules also its applicable.

yes a company can cut your wages depending on the financial status of the company and the business trends in the market.:(

After going through the subject title, I personally feel that : -
Be positive to the economical changes and search for a suitable alternative. If you are the best, you may be able to cope up with the crisis. Do not loose the opportunities if available in another areas of speciality where salary should not be criteria. Reduced salary cannot be the matching factor with daily standard of living. Once you accept the facts you will gradually become flexible enough to live with reduced salary. Since your post is in management, company can do every possible effort to reduce the salary and give more responsibility to reduce the overheads.

Since the nature of employment has undergone a change and Cost to Company concept came to vogue, it is not possible to resist any reduction proposed by the Employer. But, the law requires, one needs to be given an opportunity to explain as to why salary has been reduced. Mere saying non performer and reducing salary is not permissible in law. One needs to be informed of his performance etc.,then go for reduction of salary. (every should be in writing)
If employer has taken a unilateral decision and reduced the salary, employee can always look at an appropriate forum and seek justice. Of course, when it comes to practicals, it has got its own set backs.

legally it is illegal but if the reasons given are to avoid retrenchments or losing jobs, then it is worht accepting the reduced salary. Is this targeted at a few or it is across the board?

The offer of appointment is the basis for handling any service matters. Normally there would be a clause in the offer stating that with out deminishing your salary your services will be utilised in any dept for any work etc.,

When the mamagements can not touch the unionised categories to curtail the wages, they have only alternative to put such pressure on the supervisors and above categories. Unfortunately in our working system
most of the companies feel that the supervisors and the first level executives are only ornamental to carry out the instructions and there would be no impact if they leave the company with out any notice.

Also keeping in view the overall global economic scenario though it is pinching for accepting reduced salary, do not be hasty to entangle with the management. Only after having alternative employment you think of raising any dispute on this issue. Naturally, when things go favour to you after some time, you can definitely ask to compensate for the wage loss you have suffered.:dry:
