Hello Ben, thanks for such a speedy response. Yes, of course I do have evidence of what I was promised. The situation was as follows: when I received my contract along with my offer letter in August 2013 I was not quite happy with the salary and informed the CEO of the division of this fact. The CEO wrote me an email, into which the payroll manager and talent manager were CC'ed. This is the email:
Szymon just so you know, your offer is fine, I am not concerned with references, I know you are a star and a good guy! We need you here.
I will put your pay up after 3 months to £28k and there are bonuses on completion of sites and on trading performance of your sites. I will review your pay again after a further 3 months.
Jasse please can you take this one on, we have missed you here!
Do you need any help with accommodation for those first two weeks?
I am very much looking forward to you joining.
Am I right in thinking this email is by all means binding?
Am ready to answer any other question you might have and am looking forward to hearing from you again.
