Actually, your employer�an change your salary without notice or any reason as to�why. The fact is that most employment relationships are "at will" which means that an employer can set the terms and conditions of the workplace much as it sees fit. The exceptions�are if some form of discrimination is a factor in the employer's actions or if the terms of a union agreement, employment contract, or company policy, etc. are�violated by such actions.
