I work for major funeral home co.I was hired as general duty transitional now I am a funeral assistant. This is an on call job but if you do not take the time u go to the bottom of list, can randomly change your titles without increasing pay? I was hired at a certain hourly amount do on call no benefit employees get raises
Minnesota, like almost every other state, is an “at-will” employment state. That means, unless you have a contract that says otherwise (and you probably don’t), your employer can change your job title, position, pay, hours, or any of the other terms and conditions of your employment at will, provided you are paid the appropriate salary, and provided that the employer is not making the change BECAUSE OF your race, age, sex, disability, religion, or national origin.
I'm licensed to practice law only in Indiana, so if you're in another state, I can't give you "legal" advice. My answer is simply "friendly" advice based on my experience as an attorney in Indiana, my knowledge of federal and common law, and common sense. Even if you are in Indiana, employment law questions are very fact specific, and based on the limited information you provided in your post, I can't give you legal advice, and my answer is intended as general information only. It doesn't create an attorney-client relationship.
Unless they've lowered your pay or changed your actual duties, I don't see what the problem is. Is it only your title that has changed?
