I worked for this company for 2 years and 9 days. I hit my 2 year market 3/25/2019, with each year that pass your suppose to get a 0.25 raise, and fresh vacation hours. I didn't receive my 40 hours vacation time or my raise. I filed employee question ticket which is located on dgme website asking several questions regarding my pay and other topics. I did not receive a respond back. 2 weeks after that I was let go for reasons that are still unclear to me. When I received my final check they had finally put the 40 hours in my vacation spot, but my pay did not include my raise. I was assistant manager by the time I was let go.
Your employer is not legally REQUIRED to give you a raise, however, if you have been told that you are going to receive a raise if you do certain things (like work for a full year), and you do what is required to earn the raise, then your employer MUST give you the raise for all the hours that you worked after you should have received the raise.
You need to talk to an employment law attorney right away.
I'm licensed to practice law only in Indiana, and we've never met, so I can't give you "legal" advice. My answer is simply "friendly" advice based on my experience as an attorney in Indiana, my knowledge of federal and common law, and common sense. Even if you are in Indiana, employment law questions are very fact specific, and based on the limited information you provided in your post, I can't give you legal advice, and my answer is intended as general information only. It doesn't create an attorney-client relationship.
