Question: I am a 30-year employee of a nonprofit health care facility who has worked her way up in various departments from the Business Office to Administration.
I recently discovered that my title had changed from Administrative Secretary to Secretary. (This came to light only because it's my evaluation month.)
My immediate boss of nine years has always given me very good ratings on my evaluations, and I have received extra merit increases. This title change will make a substantial change in my salary.
I'm very disturbed at having my title changed to be the same as other secretaries within this department. First of all, I do not perform the same functions; second, my duties incorporate a higher-level responsibility.
I'd greatly appreciate any suggestions on how to handle this. -- Joyce in Illinois
