Do I have any recourse? I couldn't have done anything more. I am beyond devastated. 2. Is It Legally Enforceable? Today I was told it was given to someone else. I have been doing software development for a couple of years under a non developer job title. The news hits you hard: you didn’t get that big promotion. Even more frustrating, this person is a close personal friend of my manager. Call your boss on it. However, when an employee is passed up for promotion, denied promotion or feels aggrieved by an unfair promotion given to a coworker, it can lead to disgruntlement and raise questions about promotion laws and employee rights. I am beyond devastated.
A promotion usually involves advancement in rank, salary and benefits. It's pointless really because they have already offered the post to the other person. Do this politely and professionally, of course, but stand up for yourself. I was verbally promised a promotion. And while not giving someone a raise or promotion can make sense in many cases, in this case it makes them people who break their word. I'm a good employee and I work hard, but I'm really angry about this.
Promised a Raise? Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you? We are going through a restructure right now and my boss' boss had promised me a senior developer position and a raise. Boss lied about promotion, what should I do? And not only that, they break it so cavalierly that they don’t even feel any need to go back and talk to you about it.
Goodbye for now dreams of more direct reports and higher salary. Depending on the circumstances of your situation, your employer's promise may actually be an enforceable term of your employment contract. Basically they have given someone else the job. Lawyer's Assistant: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time? If so, you will want to find out whether that promise was enforceable. Recently I was told that they would not be promoting anyone else to that position, and lo and behold, someone younger and less qualified than me now has the position I was told I would receive. No.

Obviously since it wasn't in writing, there's not much I can … Lawyer's Assistant: Have you documented this or discussed it with HR? By Aditi Mukherji, JD on December 21, 2013 2:14 PM Did your boss ever promise you a raise, but then fail to follow through on it? Worse than that, the person who got promoted – and who’ll be your new boss – makes for an uncomfortable fit.
