Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, I’m Ben. It’s my pleasure to assist you today. I may also ask for some preliminary information to help me determine the legal position.
Is the pay rise guaranteed under contract?
Thank you very much for clarifying. It is not a given that a pay increase will result in a change o your terms and conditions, but it can happen, specifically when the pay increase is not guaranteed. The reason for this is that the increase is issued at the employer’s discretion and by using that discretion they can make the rise conditional on these new terms. So they can say that because you are not guaranteed a pay rise, they have still decided to issue you with one but it is only issued on the condition that these new terms come with it at the same time. You are free to reject these new terms, but that could also mean that the pay rise disappears s well unless the employer agrees to issue it anyway.

Going back to your query, if no other changes to your T&Cs have been communicated or included in any new contract you are asked to sign to confirm the pay rise, you can indeed assume that this will be the only change
