Yeah I agree with the review things. But if someone gave you a piece of paper with their and your own signature on it saying you WILL have a review on these intervals and these are the things you must meet to be eligible for review. If they were met (Which they were) do they have grounds to decline other than the company cannot afford it? Like they cannot (Retrospectively) say that I was not performing or anything because I was. If they pull the can't afford it option then I suppose that gives me no option but to smile and wave...


If it doesn't say *increase* then they don't *have* to give you an increase, just a review. A review may end up as "You've done very well. If we had more money, we'd give you some.".


My personal view is that if you have to start haggling over the terminology of an employment contract, it's time to move on. If it was me, I'd be logging on to Seek. If you can get an offer before the review, you're in a position to bargain.

My 2cs worth: based on the info you’ve provided you’ve got a strong case, demonstrating poor practice by the employer, and clearly some significant things they need to put right. But my suggestion is don’t go in to any meeting all guns blazing, and be even more circumspect in any written correspondence - a too bolshy an attitude could simply put their backs up and make them less likely to resolve it in a way that you will be fully happy with. Be firm but respectful, confident but not arrogant...

I’m assuming you're not a union member; it’s not like this kind of sh!t doesn’t go on in a workplace with union involvement or with collective agreements, but they can certainly be helpful in these kinds of circumstances.
