Can an employer legally do this to someones wage?
In New York State, a company is trying this scenario: A person works as a cook and makes X dollars/hr. In the morning he does prep til they open and then cooks the rest of the shift under line cook. Now the company added a prep job code at a lower wage/hr and the person clocks in under the prep code for half the day then clocks back in as a line cook the rest of the day at normal pay. The job is the same, but can they legally do this?

Sounds confusing.. Was there something signed about this when hired? Under employment legislation, an employer must inform you if they are reducing your pay or making any deductions from it..Look at your states Department of Labor website or better yet call them they love questions..
