This move by the company was unpopular. It received a lot of refusal and criticism so the management has piped down on it. However, recently, the management has implemented a salary cap even for entry level positions. I presume this is done to make sure that people will want to move to the next rank. Is this valid?
Also, I have peers who have been considered to be in floating status because the function they were doing has been moved to the US. They have been reinstated to their previous role for the time being. This movement is a lateral transfer but in 2 months, they will be forcefully promoted to the position nobody wants.
They have not signed anything yet that would tag them with a floating status. They also have been continually working after their function has been moved to the US. If they are considered in floating status can they refuse this promotion? What are their options?
