Re: Forced from being a permanent staff to be a freelancer
There are a few questions that I need to check as these incidents have just happened few days ago.
1) Does a company have the right to change a staff's employment from a permanent employee to be a freelancer with the company?
2) Besides a base salary, I also have a day rate if I am sent for a project. The day rate is written in my employment letter.
Recently, the company said that if I am sent for an " easier" project, the day rate will be less as the client cannot afford to pay my day rate. The cut is more than half of my current day rate. Is this allowed?
So, basically, after a good ten years of service with the company and having no increment for the past 3 years, in 3 days, the company has notified me and my other colleagues who are in the same team that we will no longer be employed as staff and our day rates are being deduced.
This definitely does not seem right to me.
Hope that you can advise me on what my right is.
