    Employment Advice

    At work a chap is retiring and they have externally advertised for his replacement as they have to, the job is the next step up for me and was advertised at an additional 10k per annum on the basic, they have now offered the promotion to me but won't increase my pay. Are they allowed to advertise for the role at a higher basic and then not pay me the wage increase.

      They are allowed and it is legal.
      Tell them that you are aware of the externally advertised rate and would accept an initial 5k increase plus the remaining amount in x amount of months once proven you can do the job.
      You are still saving them money by recruiting internally and saving on the initial outlay plus agency fees (if applicable).

        Do you work for an electrical firm by any chance?

          If by 'are they allowed' you mean is it legal, then the answer is almost certainly yes. That said, in the interests of achieving a win-win for you and for them, I'd suggest that you look to negotiate something that ends up with you getting 5k pa rise now with another 5k up lift next year, assuming you've proved capable of doing the job.
          If you point blank turn it down now, they may just go back out into the market and find someone who'll receive the advertised salary - you lose out, your employer loses out - its a lose-lose...

            Laugh in their face for even suggesting it.

              If the role pays the higher salary I would suggest that's the scale you should be at.

              However not sure what the legality of it all is.

              I would turn it down and see how they go with it.

                Decline the offer.

                Tell that you would be looking for more to do that job.
