  • I assume this means, though, that associates can still move through the bands, so should see a pay rise?

  • Associates at these firms should thank their lucky stars that they have a pay rise to look forward to. The real world for many is another year without any rise whatsoever....!

  • Moving up a pay band cannot fairly be described as a pay rise.

    A pay rise for a council employee, a pilot, or a teacher generally means getting more money for doing the same job.

    Every pay band a lawyer moves up is a mini-promotion – which means a lot more responsibility and more difficult work.
