Hello, thank you for your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I can assist you with your question.
No, your gross salary will stay the same, so you will see an increase in your net pay.
If you get a lower tax code, then it would, but not if you get a higher tax code.
Sorry - I was referring to net pay. Basically, you're saying that your employer is pocketing the benefit of tax allowance increases.
And if that is the case, as it sounds like, not it's not legal.
This would be a breach of your employment contract; a fundamental breach actually.
Yes, that's wrong.
You could demand the backpay be paid by your employer.
And if he refuses, you could continue to be employed there and sue him in the county court for the money he has been pocketing at your expense.
Then that's wrong. That's very bad actually.
When did it change, this April?
Was your first changed pay at sometime in April or sometime in May?
Then I think this is something you might want to take up with your employer!!
:) I think you are, yes!
Can I ask whether you're happy with the service this evening?
Great - is there anything else you would like me to answer for you?
:) If he does make you redundant or sacks you, then you've been there for two years or more, in which case, you can claim unfair dismissal against him.
Then I reckon you'd have a good claim for unfair dismissal if he did sack you. I think it's disgusting that he should try to manipulate the tax allowance increase like this in his favour (if, of course, he has).
Well, unless your contract says so, you're not automatically entitled to a pay rise. If it's just you though, that's not receiving a rise, whereas others are, then you need to ask why, and you might have a claim there.
Are you the only one without a pay rise?
Yes, do you know why that might be the case?
Strange ... Okay. So you know you can approach your employer about this now and that's something you might want to consider doing.
It might be time to look for another role though!
