When should i have had a pay increase

#1
So hopefully an easy question and the details as follows:

Seniority date: Oct 14
Substansive date: 4 Jan 16 (Broken leg prevented me doing promotion courses any sooner)

Now i thought i should have moved up an increment from 2 to 3 in Jan 17, as i promoted prior to the 2 year stand still cam into effect (Thinking that it came into effect Apr 16), but was told No at the time.

Well its now been 2 years and i still didn't get a pay rise in Jan 18. I have taken it up with the clerks but i'd expect to get a reliable and quicker answer here.

So should i have had a pay rise in Jan 17 and Jan 18 therefore being on level 4 and due a chunk of back pay?

Or should it have been Jan 18 and moving onto level 3 and due a small chunk of back pay?

TIA

Sorry....but I need to be a pedant at this point.....the word is "substantive"......try looking it up.

I'll leave the rest of your issue to others that know much more that I.

Sorry, but this all depends on your personal circumstances. The level you entered Pay 16 depends on the rate of pay (not the level) that you were in receipt of on transition. You will probably find that your IBD was adjusted at the same time. This should all have been explained in the mandatory Pay 16 brief that ALL service personnel were required to attend.

By the way, your increment date is not based either on Seniority date or Substantive date, but on your IBD (it's on your pay statement under payroll information).

Cheers the IBD is the 4th Jan same as the substantive.

I was a maxed out LCpl on high pay band on £29,947, so on the 4th of Jan moved to L3 of 7 and £31,414 on the old pay scale.
