Here's what you must do to ensure you and your employees don't fight over salary increases

 
You must have a remuneration policy in place. This must outline when you'll give increases and how you'll work them out.
 
But having a remuneration policy isn't enough.
 
You must also communicate this policy to your employees so they know the basis on which you give increases.
 
You can give your new employees this policy when they start to work for you. And you must make sure you give existing staff a copy of the policy in case their contract doesn't refer to how you give increases.
 
The important point here is that you must ensure your employees know in advance what the criteria are for giving increases. You must also tell them how regularly you give increases and how you work them out. This will result in less fighting over salary increases come the end of the year. So have a remuneration policy in place and communicate it effectively.
