I've been with a company for four years and have not received a raise since I started.
I was on maternity leave for 1 year and when I returned I was placed in different job in a completely different department and didn't receive any change in compensation and even asked and they kept putting it off then back, oh it will be this month, or that month, nope its been pushed back to this month, oh no, we aren't giving raises this year. When I was on leave, there were a certain number of individuals in the corporation who have received raises even the dept. I was working in. I have been working since my 20's and now in my 40's. I don't think I have ever worked for a company where they withheld raises or gave raises to certain people, but not others. I am not sure if this is discrimination or legal. Can you provide your expertise on this matter?
