A promotion without a raise. The act of changing an employee's title without due compensation. The addition of job responsibilities because the employee "deserves a challenge."
To thank you for your good and hard work, we'd like to offer you a title change to 'King of France'. This fauxmotion will not include a raise but you do get new business cards.
