I work at a job where it's nearly 100% commission. I get very small allowances for cell and vehicle. I was also given a company van which I have to drive approximately 350 miles every week (RT) to pick up deliveries from our warehouse in another state. Every month I would submit my receipts for gas to fill up the company van and they would reimburse me for that separately. My driving in-town is done with my own car and that's what the allowance is for.
So, yesterday I made my 350-mile trip and when I got to our warehouse I picked up my check and it had a note saying that I am no longer getting the allowance or the reimbursements :mad: ! On my drive back to town I had nearly 3 hours to stew about this and this is definitely not acceptable. This will basically cut my income by 25-30%, AT LEAST. Some months, maybe more. :mad:
Anyway, I haven't called or emailed my boss yet. Any ideas on what to say, or not say??
I can't believe they did this without any notice or warning at all.
BTW, I am a contract employee, if that makes any difference.....meaning they don't pay my taxes or offer any benefits either . So a mediocre job just went to the "bad" category.
