Employers reducing fixed salary, increasing variable

Hi team,

Is it legally right for employers to reduce fixed pay compensation and move to variable pay due to Covid times? How can employee get help in this situation?

Please advise

Hi Gowri,

Due to covid if you want to reduce the employee’s salary , you can do it but it is advisable “Not to change Basic”.

By doing so employees PF ESI and Gratuity will not be affected.

Let’s wait for other opinion on the same.
