In 2018 I asked Norfolk County Council to review my pay

This answer was rated:

In 2018 I asked Norfolk County Council to review my pay scale as I didn’t think the pay grade reflected the responsibility I had. I sent them a job description/ specification. I was told verbally at work that NCC thought the pay grade was correct. I retired from this job in April and my job is being advertised at 2 pay grades higher than i received. Do I have grounds to pursue a complaint? Thank you
JA: Have you discussed the non-compete agreement with a manager or HR? Or with a lawyer?
Customer: No, I have asked HR for a copy of the job description I submitted and the response from NCC.
JA: What is your employment status? Are you an employee, freelancer, consultant or contractor? Do you belong to a union?
Customer: I am now retired and no longer belong to a union.
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: Nothing else

Thank you I look forward to reading your reply.
Thank you very much for your patience. You should submit your compliant yes and they will have to justify the difference. They may have added responsibility but they will have to show this otherwise you can claim back dated pay if there is no difference in job description and roles.

Any follow up please do not hesitate to send your message. We are always glad to assist and clarify if you return for further guidance. All the best
