Unless there is a written employee agreement/manual, he does not have to give you advance notice. He cannot come to you today and say that your wages were cut for September, but he can come to you today and say that starting today (if at start of shift) or tomorrow (if at end of shift) your wages will be $x.xx...

None. They are only legally obligated to pay you minimum wage, not give you notice of anything.

None. You can just get less pay on your next check. That doesn't mean they shouldn't give notice. They just don't have to.

He could just fire you, y'know, and then you wouldn't have worry about notice in cutting wages since there wouldn't be any.

Legally they do not have to give you any notice at all. And legally you do not have to give them any notice either if you quit because your wages were cut. If you don't like working for less, just walk out. and find another the unemployment rate reaches 10%.

If you pay is not contractual nothing, if your pay it written into a formal contract there has to be a three month consultation period. At the end of which if you still haven't agreed they can terminate your current employment and re-employ you on new contracts. Contact ACAS to find out your contractual requirements... More

They have to tell you before the pay period that the wage reduction would go into effect. I.E. if your paycheck is weekly the Monday that the wages are cut is when you have to be informed. This is so you know how much you are working for and it will give you the opportunity to quit if you so desire.

Your pay rate is a part of your contract of employment (whether formally stated or not). Changing it without the required notice is a breach of contract. Take this up with your Trade Union - if you are not yet a member join it now.
