From our payroll guru, Alan McEwen:
The real question is does the manager have authority to bind the employer.
If the answer is no, then it is as if nothing has happened.
The manager should probably be subject to some form of discipline.
If the manager had no authority, then the pay raise does not have to be honoured, particularly if the employee knew there was no authority for this.
