If the salary adjustment is due to a promotion, you must follow the action process (see promotions and transfers). If there are areas for improvement that would make the employee`s contribution even more important, the manager should mention them at the meeting. While he has just received a salary increase, the employee is sensitive to suggestions for improvement. This is especially true if the improvements allow the employee to increase their salary in the next benefit period. A wage rate adjustment is a change in an employee`s annual, hourly or contract salary. At company level, company agreements on working and employment conditions are concluded between employers and employees. It lays down minimum conditions of employment and national employment standards continue to apply. If an employer uses a registered agreement, the bonus does not apply. The compensation process ends with downloads of Excel templates called “payrolls.”
