Default Loss of earnings: I am being paid a lesser salary from which I was promised

I was hired to work in Tennesse where I work and have recently been moved a few miles to a different branch but, as it is in Georgia, I am now having to pay Georgia State Tax which means I am getting about 50 dollars a month less in my pay.

I have also found that I am being paid a lesser salary from which I was promised when hired and also was in the job description when I applied for the job.
Human resources and management are not willing to deal with these issues.

I wish to inform you that in case you are being paid lesser salary then promised to you then you can first inform the higher management that you are being paid less and human resource department and finance are not solving your problem. If even the higher management does not listen to you then you can file a suit for claiming the portion of unpaid salary. In this you will have to show the amount promised to you and amount actually paid to you. Finally, your claim will be of difference and interest on it.

Affa - yes, in principle. Then he can enjoy collecting far less on unemployment.

OP - have you sent a letter to the HR director? Is it possible the lower salary is because you were moved to GA? (Most companies have varying salary structures for different regions).

Beyond that you have to decide if the difference is significant enough to put the job on the line.
