Is it a healthy practice to give conditional salary raise to an employee who is looking for an increment?
Say for example - if an employee asks for a specific raise in the salary which the management feels is an undue demand. But in the fear of losing a candidate, the management proposes to raise the salary with a commitment of sticking to the organization for next 6 months and in case the person fails to do so for any reason , similar value deductions to be made from the final settlement.
Personally, I feel that doing this we're committing to his future and needs via an increase. This a way of his stepping up to match that commitment in some level, although it really doesn't guarantee anything.
Seeking senior's advice to make sure a justified step is taken.
Thanks in advance for your valuable time.
