hi there! My friend has a big problem at work. She was promised a wage increase and promotion in the six-monthly work assessment thingy. And she never got it. In fact even after a year and a half in the job she hasn't got past the probzeit starting wage, which should have been increased after 6 months. The reason she was given was that she wasn't good enough at her job at the time of the probetzeit ending. But now she is constantly working overtime and has significantly increased the range of duties and has improved...hence the promised pay increase and promotion. She blames it on her boss hating her. There was a bit of a personality clash. I think this seems to be a case of either bullying or constructive dismissal to me. Does anyone have any advice or similar experiences? What is the story with the german employment law? I would think if it has been put in writing that she will get the extra money then she should plus backpayment.
