Hi my name isXXXXX 24th May 2012 I was offered a new position with my current employer, the offer letter stated " I also confirm that your salary will continue at the present rate of £19,250 per annum, but will be reviewed at the end of the year, when we hope to award an increase to £21,500 per annum, subject to satisfactory progress in the position" I have made two verbal requests to my line manager to implement this increase in salary and been told that there are no performance issues and the award will be made. This has not happened and now I have requested in writing on the 2nd of April that this pay award be implemented. I have now been told that this pay award is subjct to a performance review which is likely to take place in May. Is the company in breach of contract? Thanks. Steve
the reference to the end of the year has always been interpreted by me and intimated that it was the end of the calendar year ie December 31st 2012.
