I joined my current company on the 19th November 2018 and my contract states that my salary will be reviewed on the 1st May 2019.
I was told yesterday that this will not happen because I have not been with the company for 6 months - I needed to have started on the 1st November 2018 to qualify for this.
I totally understand that a salary review does not mean your salary will change, but it states on my contract that salary reviews are carried out in line with the salary review policy which does not exist on our HR intranet and I was told yesterday that they do not believe that there is actually a policy.
Can they deny me a salary review if they have no salary review policy that states the need to work for the company 6 months before this can take place and the fact they have issued me with a contract that states my next review will be 1st May 2019?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
