I am incomes lower than my predecessor — what can I do?


I’ve been promoted and acquired a elevate, however I’ve found that my predecessor made greater than me. Clearly, the corporate may have accomplished extra. How ought to I deal with this?

Had been you glad with the compensation that was supplied to you for the position? As a result of in case you had been, then discovering that you just predecessor was paid extra doesn’t essentially change the equation or the worth for you. There are a number of the reason why your predecessor may have been incomes extra. They may have been with the corporate a very long time, or had extra expertise. The corporate could have determined to refill the place with somebody who had much less expertise and extra room to develop. Or, the monetary mannequin for the corporate has modified and so they now can’t afford to pay the identical. The one two factors that matter are: How are you being paid relative to the corporate’s related executives? And the way are you being paid on your position relative to your worth available on the market? How you’re being paid in comparison with a predecessor is much less related. You might focus on it together with your boss simply to listen to the reason, however I wouldn’t method with self-righteous indignation.

I used to be employed on the premise that I may work remotely, which was why I took the job. Now I have a brand new boss who says that I’ve to be again within the workplace or lose my job. What are my rights?

The corporate has the appropriate to revise phrases and circumstances of employment. You’ve gotten the appropriate to stay silent and acquiesce to their needs, or you may have the appropriate to refuse and lose your job. Nonetheless, on this case you’ll possible be entitled to the identical advantages and unemployment compensation as in case you had been laid off, since this can be a materials change within the phrases and circumstances of your employment. There’s a third choice that I’d advocate making an attempt first. Your new boss could not know the way productive you may have been working remotely. Clarify your state of affairs, how you’re employed and are delivering worth and ask the boss to will let you proceed working remotely on a trial foundation. If he agrees, it’s possible you’ll change his thoughts — and within the meantime you can begin in search of a brand new gig, simply in case.
