I am a salary employee at a Hotel, I am asked to take reduced wages.

unemployed_personQ) I am a salary employee at a Hotel. The hotel was recently sold and if I am asked to take a hourly position for less money. Is that legal? Can I refused and apply for benefits? Or do I have to accept even though I drive 50 miles to work one way? I just want to be informed on my options. I am a retired soldier and after moving to Indiana it took me 3 years to find employment due to my age. I was hired at this position almost four years ago. Thank you David B*****

A) You can keep your position and apply for unemployment benefits to cover some of your reduced wages. Keep in mind that one of the requirements for getting unemployment insurance benefits is that “you lost your job through no fault of your own”. As to if it is legal for your new hotel owner to reduce you wages, you will need to enquirer at your state department of employment office.

  1. I have not worked in nine years. I keep getting letters from Michigan Dept of Labor saying they are offering me more unemployment money, You can’t go to their office, it seems to be closed, you can’t talk to anyone on the phone, you just get a recording telling you to go online and appeal to get more benefits.
    I mailed in and emailed in and faxed in fraud reports, I get back a nice letter telling me how to file to get more benefits.
    Now I get a 1099 for $5,500.00 that I am supposed to pay tax on.
    So I sent another fraud report and today I get a letter from them saying I am approved for more benefits and how to appeal their decision and try to get een more benefits.
    I have received no money from them, I asked where they were sending the money, no reply. They have my address to send me info on getting more benefits, so where are they sending the money?
    China? Russia? This is pure insanity.
