  • Late review - retroactive pay? California

    I am a salaried employee that lives and works fora CA based company. My yearly review is in September and it is customary for the company to give reviews at the very minimum. This past year, after numerous reminders to my immediate supervisor and the HR dept., I was given my review (with a raise) in Feb of this year. My question is, are there laws entitling me to retroactive pay? Is it just out of courtesy that the majority of employers give retro pay following a late review (I have never worked for a company that didn't retroactive a late review that had a raise attached to it)? It later came to my attention that many employees are given late reviews, and when requesting retro pay I got no "real" response.


    I appreciate your time and assistance in these matters.

    Nah, no laws as such. It is doubtfull that the review policy would be an enforcable a contract. It would mostly be a matter of courtesy. You might have a case if you were the only one of the employees who got a late review that was not given retropay.

      I agree - no law.
      Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia

          The law does not require that you be given retropay.
          The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

            Since the law does not require you to be given raises (with the exception of minimum wage increases), you in turn are not intitled to a retroactive raise.
