Re: Pay Cut Issue

My company decided to 10% pay cut due to Sales/Performance. In the letter they wrote,
Based on the overall group sales as at year end 2008, there was a drastic drop in our sales and as a whole did not meet nor achieve the sales target. In view of this and the current economy downturn, the Management has decided to conduct the pay cut of 10% to your basic salary.
They only chose certain departments to implement this like product support and marketing. In fact on my side, my company did earn profit and the turnover were more than previous year. If we do not sign the letter and they continue to cut our pay, what can we do about it?

we further discuss about that issue and no one sign. Today the company decided to reduce 2days of working days a month only on certain people. Can they implement something without our consent?

If as you said, there was profit and turnover was also good, then you may consult the Labour Department and obtain their views.

Just want to understand that, if company going to execise the pay cut, Accordinng to the labour act, why no specify any % allow for pay cut by company to whom income below 5K.
And those company which perform for pay cut, they should be compensate or replace back for the leave or cut short the working hour ?
maybe this can let their labour to go out get others part time to recover their income.
