  • Back pay due to me? North Carolina

    I'm not sure if this question goes here, but hopefully someone can help. I have been in my current position at work since July. I was promised a $1.80/hr raise then. Six months later and still no raise. I have not been silent about this issue, as I've been told everything that can be done at store level has been done. I have looked in my file at work and it shows that I should have received my pay increase around the 21st of July, so it is documented on paper. By law, does the company have to give me back pay or am I basically out of luck?

    In the absence of a legally binding contract, policy or CBA that specifically says otherwise, they are not required by law to give you an increase at all. Whether or not they are required to provide back pay will depend entirely on the terms of the agreement; the law does not require it unconditionally.
    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.
