I will just like to ask, if a the company is required to provide a retro pay in the event that the salary increase is delayed. When I signed for this company, the expectations that provided to me is that there will be an annual increase, that increase will be based on my performance. I turned one year in our company last March, my supervisor already conducted the performance review a week after my hire date. Then for some reason the company provided a memo that the increase will be delayed and it should credited by July.
Just today my manager gave me the copy of my performance review. The amount of increase is there and the effective date is July 1, 2011. Which surprised me a lot since the date of my performance review is supposed to be several months earlier than that. Although it was never clear to us that the salary increase will be retroactive from the date of hire, most of us are questioning whether that is legal or not.
Basing from my experience with my previous employer, when our salary increase was delayed the pay was retroactive.
I hope you can help me with this.
