I am leaving a current company and my manager notified me that i got raise starting June. My last day is August 13Th. My manager said they are late with payments but it will be backdated. Am i still eligible to receive to the difference even if i am leaving a company?
Do you have anything in writing confirming that you should have been paid that amount, and starting when?
If so, I would think you should be entitled to it...
HOWEVER: Be very careful about signing any exit paperwork. There's usually a clause in the exit paperwork that states that if you sign it, you're agreeing not to sue for any unpaid wages, raises, etc. Read everything if you signed/are asked to sign documents on your way out.
If there is such a clause in this document, and you haven't signed it yet... You should consider asking them for that money before signing it.
Companies want to get this paperwork finished so that they don't have any lingering liability from previous employees, so if it's a matter of paying you a few thousand bucks to get that handled rather than going to court for it 6-12 months from now, the reasonable ones would generally pay it and move on if pressed about it.
