Philadelphia, PA asked in Employment Law for Pennsylvania

Q: My salary was cut 35% due to COVID 19. Do other agreements between my employer and I still stand?

Such as a promissory note tied to a relocation bonus. Does this work any differently if I'm furloughed?

A: A lot depends on what is going on--a cut while you still work is different from a cut and you are furloughed. As to the note you need to look at the language of the agreement, any letters that discussed the terms etc.

The interesting question is if you are furloughed but on 1/3 pay can you get unemployment, but before that you need to find out if you max out. I'd suggest you get all this information together, then consult an employment law specialist who focusses on workers.
