I’ve been promoted and received a raise, but I’ve discovered that my predecessor made greater than me. Obviously, the corporate could have done more. How should I handle this?
Were you satisfied with the compensation that was offered to you for the role? Because in the event you were, then discovering that you simply predecessor was paid more doesn’t necessarily change the equation or the worth for you. There are several the explanation why your predecessor might have been earning more. They might have been with the corporate an extended time, or had more experience. The corporate can have decided to refill the position with someone who had less experience and more room to grow. Or, the financial model for the corporate has modified and so they now can’t afford to pay the identical. The one two points that matter are: How are you being paid relative to the corporate’s similar executives? And the way are you being paid on your role relative to your value available on the market? How you might be being paid in comparison with a predecessor is less relevant. You can discuss it together with your boss just to listen to the reason, but I wouldn’t approach with self-righteous indignation.
I used to be hired on the idea that I could work remotely, which was why I took the job. Now I have a recent boss who says that I even have to be back within the office or lose my job. What are my rights?
The corporate has the proper to revise terms and conditions of employment. You will have the proper to stay silent and acquiesce to their wishes, or you will have the proper to refuse and lose your job. Nonetheless, on this case you’ll likely be entitled to the identical advantages and unemployment compensation as in the event you had been laid off, since this can be a material change within the terms and conditions of your employment. There’s a 3rd option that I’d recommend trying first. Your recent boss may not know the way productive you will have been working remotely. Explain your situation, how you’re employed and are delivering value and ask the boss to help you proceed working remotely on a trial basis. If he agrees, you might change his mind — and within the meantime you may start searching for a recent gig, just in case.
