Pay rise before handing in notice
in Redundancy & redundancy planning

I've recently changed jobs and have just received my final pay slip & P45.
Shortly before handing my notice in, a pay rise was agreed.
On the last payslip, the lower, original, salary amount was used.
Am I mistaken that I was expecting to be paid the increased salary amount as it was signed and agreed in writing before any mention of my leaving?
Side note - I was also paid for my remaining holiday entitlement at the lower salary. Is this normal too?

How much you'll likely pay from AprilMSE Tools
The rise was agreed around the start of October. I handed in my notice before the end of October and the rise was to be effective from November 1st.
However, of course, the OP should check.
You should have waited till you got 1 months increase pay then given notice in which case you'd have gotten the higher amount.
live and learn! hopefully the new job was a lot more paying and will cover it
