Q. Can an employer drop the pay for the hours you already worked to minimum wage if you quit without a two week notice
A: Your employer can reduce your pay at any time. However, it can only reduce it for future work. It is unlawful for your employer to reduce your pay for time already worked. You can file a wage complaint with the NC Department of Labor's Wage and Hour Division.
Q. I sale cars at a lot owned by a huge dealership. I was given a raise last month, now they want to take it back.
A: As to the commission change, the employer can change your compensation, including commission, at any time. However, the change cannot be retroactive. This means that if you earned commission under the new structure, you are entitled to the amount so earned. Even so, they can change the commission moving forward or do away with it although. If you are being denied compensation, commission or otherwise, due to your race or gender, then you may have a claim for unlawful discrimination. Keep in mind that these are extremely complex legal issues and you need to consult directly with an experienced employment attorney to have your situation fully analyzed.
