I’ve been working at graybar electric for about 6 months now through a temp service called Manpower Group. The temp to hire time is 520 hours or 3 months., which I completed months ago. They always congratulate me on my production. I’ve been certified on different machines there. Also my shift and job title has changed. I came in as a material handler, and now I’m a stock picker, yet I still make the same money I was making when I first got hired.
Yes, changing your title or position is legal. Your remedy, if you dont like it, is to quit.

Mr. Mallory is correct. I write only to add that if they change your title to one that changes you to a salaried position, it does not necessarily mean that you are not entitled to overtime pay. Employers will do this to avoid the expense of overtime, but the reality is that overtime money is due for work over 40 hours in a week. Put different, an "assistant manager" that is still stocking parts and not performing any management or supervisory functions is still entitled to overtime despite the salary and title.
Yes. Why? Because Florida is an “at will” state, which means employers are free to hire, transfer, promote, demote, suspend, reinstate, fire and rehire employees for any reason at any time, i.e., “at will.” The only thing employers cannot do is make any of these adverse employment decisions based upon an employee’s race, age, gender, disability, religion, marital status or national origin.
