Good Morning
My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question.
An employer is under no obligation to give you a pay rise unfortunately.
If you have an agreement that says you are to get regular rises and they have not complied you can enforce that.
if not all you can do is approach them and ask for a pay rise and discuss it.
Does you agreement mention anything about rises?

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
