    Ill try and keep this nice and quick...

    I've recently been promoted to Warehouse Manager and was promised an initial wage of £18,000 with chance to up that wage over time until it is capped at a set limit.

    I was on £16,500 before hand so I was expecting a £1500 annual rise, however I have actually had a £500 rise instead & I am now expected to do all that a manager does as well as my normal job.

    Now i do not expect to be put on a fantastic wage until I can prove I am worthy of this position but I was promised a wage which I haven't had? Is there anything I can do about this? I am speaking to the HR Manager when she is back from leave on Monday and discussing things with her but I would like to know my rights/what to say before hand.

    This isn't the first time they have gave me false promises, when I passed my driving test I was promised a company van... never happened. I have had so many false promises off this company it is really now getting me down!

    Try to get any 'promises' made to you in writing
