My son in law was told to either accept a significant reduction in pay or resign his job
My son in law had been employed as a restaraunt manager for several years in the state of Missouri. He has a three year old daughter and a nine month old son. Within six weeks following the birth of each of his babies he was transfered to a new city.
After refusing a transfer to Kentucky he was sent to a store in Branson Missouri. He retained the title of manager but had in effect been reduced to an assistant manager.
Last week he was called and told to go to the Springfield store to work the overnight shift. with less than two hours notice (about an hour away) This he was unable to do because he could not find child care for the children on that short notice and my daughter had to work.
His employer told him to accept a significant decrease in pay or resign. He chose to resign. Can he collect his unemployment benefits.
How significant was the reduction. And did he reference the pay reduction in his resignation letter? .. if he wrote one.
You know what kind of information employers search for quite often? How to increase employee moral or how to improve employee retention.
I have one word to employers asking these type of questions. RESPECT!
By the way, Missouri is an attorney state and a useful website for Missouri unemployment claimants is Timlaw
