My company I have been employed with for 13 years has decided to furlough half its work force, staggering it over this month and next month, will eventually lead to half the work force being furloughed. All senior management, middle management and a few key employees will be still working from home albeit on a 20% pay cut, this pay cut doesn't have an end date and is classed as "temporary". 20% cut for me is substaintial, furloughed employees are being given the goverments 80% (2.5k cap) plus 70% of there standard pay, so in affect, a small difference between my 80% pay and theirs (furlough + 70% top up). I am the IT Manager and the ONLY member of IT, all of the employees are now working from home and I have spent a CONSIDERABLE amount of time increasing systems capacity, issuing laptops, phones, PBX redesign as well as training all the office staff on how a VPN works and on the video conferencing systems which historically, they had no clue on. This is still on going and I get called into client technical meetings and sales calls as our business sells IT systems and as the only actual IT person, I do the technical meetings and Q&A on these sales. I also implement and support the systems for these solutions out of our data centre (which I built) and the cloud azure/aws depending on the solution sold. I feel I should be getting a bloody pay rise not be asked to take a back dated 20% cut - I made the business a substantial amount of money last week and every month I made big sales in emergency/business critical sales to our clients, these were based on my sole effort and knowledge of our clients. I am on 6 months notice and I am seriously considering just handing in my notice and getting full pay for the next 6 months on that notice and then trying my luck in the job market in October. Am I being a knee jerking crazy man, what would you do? Feeling unappreciated for my efforts in keeping the cash rolling and the systems running in while everyone sits at home doing the garden!
