I am highly upset. I left a good company and signed on with a contracting company five months ago to work as an on-site contractor for a certain amount of time and a certain amount of money. This company (a large international company) decided they were paying us too much and told my company they will only pay a certain rate (a lot less). My company would not go for that so another writer and I have been given two weeks. They are going to interview and hire less experienced people for a lot less money.
What gives a company the right to change the rules in the middle of the game? I understood that when you signed a contract with a company it is supposed to be honored. If they can just change the contract without any repercussions, it's not worth the effort to sign the thing. What legal steps can I take?
MBNA did the same to their contractors, twice in as many years, and while they were making 19% net profit.
