Can u legally be promote without being paid for it. : LUSENET : Law Of The Workplace : One Thread

I have been promoted to a position which, they let go of a women before she went on leave. I told them I didn't want the job, then they told me to try it out for a week and if I didn't like it. I could go back to my old job. I'm still in the position and they will not allow me to go back to my old spot, and will not give me a raise to go with it. When I requested a job description, they gave me a fake description with no date, no job duties. The reason they say they won't give me a raise is because "paper base work" is in my job description. My new position is 4times the work load and has nothing to do with my old position.

Are you public or private employee? You need to check your contract or MOU and then go from there. If your in a bargining unit then they should not have allowed you to move up without a raise in the first place. Basically if they have you doing the work at your present rate of pay then why give you a raise? It sounds more like taking advantage of you not promoting you. NEVER EXCEPT A "PROMOTION" (title change) WITHOUT A PAY RAISE AND STOP YOUR CO-WORKERS FROM DOING THE SAME. WHATS THE FUTURE IN A COMPANY WITH RAISELESS PROMOTIONS?
