Dang. I'd be royally honked off, too. My company gives incremental
pay increases at the review date, always the anniversary of the employee's
hire into the position. So, I was hired July 1, and my raises always begin
July 1. A couple years ago, my review was delayed until October. I got a
big check the first of November paying me for the money I should have made
from July to October.

And when a promotion or other change in positin occurs, any change in pay
takes effect *immediately*.

This is fair, and the way it ought to be.
