Bit of a dilemma.....I would appreciate any help/support or reference to case law/employment law.
I have been employed in a role for the last year at £50k per annum
I have found out through management accounts my predassessor was on £65k before he left
Job role and associated responsibilities are the same (if not more now!)
Organisational procedure insists that the org will pay median rate as a starting point for all benchmarked role
Challenged HR to explain why the £15k anomaly. Requested to see evidence of re-benchmarked salary and also requested confirmation as to whether I am on the media anchor point.
HR response was that' they could not find benchmarking data (albeit I said could this be because you never did one?)
HR also unable to confirm whether i am I the media rate.
My suspicions are that the salary reduced for nk good reason and the revised salary was plucked out air.
Where can I go with this? What can I do if I have been underpaid for so long?
Thanks in anticipation
