Just wondering if anyone has been in a similar situation. To standardize the pay structures across a large organisation they are changing my contract. The proposed plan is to increase our basic wage (still waiting for figure but likely to be in region of 1-2k) but eliminate the overtime (currently 1.3 time basic pay). Also annual bonus participation factor increased from 5 to 8% (if we make enough money).
From what I understand they can do this and if I don't like the proposal they can put me on 90 days to either accept the offer or let me walk.
My concern is that normally overtime is approx 1-2 hours a week but could they force me to do a lot more (sweat the assets!)? If they said we are really busy and need me to do 2 hours a day what grounds could I reject on? Anyone else found themselves in a similaar situation, how did you handle it?
For the record I am an Engineer with a degree and been working there for 4.5 years. Some people are surprised I get overtime at all on a Salaried job.
