Pay rise before handing in notice

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?

Thanks,
Sam

    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.

    It is quite common for contracts to include a clause that says pay rises (or bonuses) won't be paid to anyone working their notice.  And that would be regardless of when it was agreed.

    I don't know how common that is.  Never in any of mine.
    However, of course, the OP should check.

    my contract says pay rise and bonuses won't be paid if within notice period.

    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 :)

    Whilst we could debate how common, such a clause is certainly perfectly lawful if correctly drafted.
