Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Good afternoon I would like to get some information what my options are in the following situation: 1. I am working at the University. I have started in June 2014 in a different role on the temporary contract. After I have been offered another role on the Fixed term contract from 13.10.14- 30.04.16. It the contract is stated that my salary is 28K, raising to 30K upon successful completion of the probationary period. I have not received a pay rise, but have been told that accidentally I have been offered a higher salary than supposed to therefore my salary will no raise. I have not been notified in writing of any change. 2. I have asked in March whether it is possible to make this contract permanent, the answer was no. However, in May we got a new employee who has started on 6 month temporary contract but after 3 month she has requested a permanent contract, different job title and a higher salary and she got it. She is not more experienced nor more educated than I am. I feel discriminated, probably because I am an EU passport holder and she is British. I just wonder what my options are. Can I make a legal complaint at the end of my contract and expect some compensation? Thank you in advance for any help you are able to provide. Kind regards J.
The other two colleagues in our office are British and got permanent contracts, now they have employed a new person (after me) who is a British passport holder too and got a permanent contract as well. Almost all workers at this University are British nationals, therefore I am under impression that it isn't a coincidence, however, I have no prove no any logical explanation why I have been treated differently if I am more experienced.
Thank you Ben for the useful advice. But what shall I do with the salary that has been agreed during the interview, but I am not receiving?
Thank you for the useful information.
