About five months ago, my supervisor assigned to me major new responsibilities at work, including managing four people and one aspect of our budget. When I asked to discuss my compensation in light of the added workload, he said it could only be addressed as part of my annual review. Now, I’ve learned my compensation will be discussed only after HR signs off on the raise he already proposed, without allowing any input or conversation from my end. How should I proceed if the pay increase feels too low or if back pay (which he mentioned was a possibility) isn’t included?
