We are on a project based status. The project is still ongoing, however, there was a requirement to downsize headcount due to decrease on call volume for call center. What are the rights of a tenured project based employee? Sending to floating status legitimate? are there any compensatory benefits to expect while on floating status? what will be the guideline of selecting employees to float versus those staying on the program?

Just a clarificatory question, are you a regular employee of the company or on a contractual basis?

you have a right to employment as long as the project is still existing, but if there is a real decrease in requirement of manpower, the company can suspend the employment relationship and put employees in floating status for 6 months

thank you. Can you clarify, due to the reduction of manpower. The company has moved the employee to a smaller headcount. now, can they reduced the variable pay ( this the actual line item on employees salary ) ? Meaning, there is basic salary, allowance and variable pay. the later is being reduced is it legal to be reduced due to assignment to smaller project?

in my opinion, that can be allowed if it is dependent on which project you are assigned to
