    Default Salary reduction for permies???

    I am quite new to this but apparently it can also happen.... note that this doesn't obviously stop the company making lots of redundancies...

    What's next? Permanent employees are asked to contribute with their personal funding to cover company's losses????

    Right, permanent jobs and security...

    Late 2001, at the start of the last IT recession, I found myself working as a permie in a dot-bomb when they asked everyone to take a 25% pay cut. I walked out.

    Already happening in Japan.

    Middle managers at Panasonic are "asked" to buy $1000 - $3000 worth of Panasonic goods to help bolster the company.

    I expect refusing to buy the goods doesn't sit well with career prospects....

    I am considering doing the same with my staff here. If it preserves jobs and there is consensus it would be better to do that than make one or two people redundant. And when the economy recovers the team is still in place.
    There is a lot of pressure to cut costs at the mo.

    In most countries no, but you can with the employee's consent rewrite the employment contract.

    If they don't want to enforce cut in wages, they can implement things like
    pay freezes, stopping overtime, decrease in working hours. Just happened where I as just working to both office and factory floor staff. Bounus for the company if anyne walks, but they maynot have anything to walk to in these times.
