Since the day of hire, this employee has received per diem. The original company sold and the new company decided within 6 months after acquiring the business, that they would not pay per diem to anyone working within 2 hours of the local office. Per diem was paid to anyone who lived more than 2 hours from where they were working. This employee lives more than 300 miles from the office and is no longer receiving per diem. He can if he works more than 2 hours from the local office. However, if he works near his home, he again cannot recieve per diem. Is this a legal practice? There is no employee handbook or known policies about per diem. Rules change with the wind. Does the employee have a legitimate complaint? Can this employee legally do anything about this? Also, there is no evaluation system or performance appraisal system. Cash bonuses are given and there is no system or known policy about receiving bonuses. Jobs are never posted and no fair opportunity is given to employees to apply for open positions within the company. Employees are hand picked to fill vacant positions. What can be be done to prevent this unfair and possibly illegal practices?
