I was employed by a Church for 4 years with full-time compensation. Late last year they informed me that they were cutting my compensation by 66%. Their rationale had nothing to do with financial shortfall, the finances of the church were fine they told me. They had done online comps and realized that for a church our size, my compensation was too high and should be 1/3 of what it was currently.
It seems to me that we had a verbal contract for four years and for them to decide four years into my service that they were paying me too much is wrong! If I left or got fired, then they could adjust, but I have made financial decisions and commitments based on our verbal agreement.
