I need your guidance on reduction in salary of employee, who is on probation in a school where 7CPC is applicable.
Can an employer reduce the basic salary of employee without any fault of employee? Due to reduction in basic pay the gross salary also reduced.
I am working in a private school under CBSE Board, where 7 Central Pay commission adopted by school. i have joined the school on 01/01/2018 on probation as per appointment letter received. i have received the correct salary till Jan 2019 as per my original fixation. but now in Feb 2019 management has revised my appointment letter in which date of appointment has been changed to 02/01/2018 (they changed this to avoid mt first increment with in six month as per 7CPC rule) and pay fixation has been changed. due that my basic salary has been reduced and result of that my take home salary is also reduced.
I have already raised this issue with my management, but i am not getting satisfactory answer from them.
Is it legally correct ?? what i can do ?? please suggest and provide any judgement or act for this type of matter for reference.
Thanks in Advance.
