  • Clergy Contract Question

    Hello;

    Does the church board have the right to re-write the clergy employment contract without consent of the pastor?

    Thanks for the answers...

    No--not unless he agrees. Or until after the term expires and a new contract is due.

      Thank you so much for the reply.

      Is there a court case or something I could refer him to?

      Thanks

        A contract is binding until it expires it is just basic contract law. What is going on?

          The pastor and board have a contract for employment at $48,000 a year.
          The board has decided it no longer wants to pay that amount, but wants to reduce the wage to $36,000, despite high job reviews and the highest congregational vote in 85 yrs. The board claims that they can do whatever they want.

          Not a fun situation.

            They generally cannot reduce that pay until the contract expires unless the contract has provisions that allow it. He could even sue to enforce it
