I recently completed an apprenticeship for a company that I've been working at for three years now.
Pretty soon after I received a contract of employment from them - however the salary was too low due to a misunderstanding that I would continue my apprenticeship at a higher level. After some very brief discussions I was told that a different contract would be discussed with my manager's higher ups.
Since then it has nearly been a month and a half, About a week ago I chased and was told that one of the people responsible for the contract has contracted covid-19 - though I have seen that the person in question has been active on emails and during a weekly company call for several weeks now. Other than that there has been no news.
Is this sort of delay reasonable? Why might it be taking so long? Are they just trying to string me along at my current low wage for as long as possible?
