To be able to submit a salary claim you have to meet one of the following requirements:

  1. Significant changes to the employee’s tasks (the claim must be documented so that it is possible to measure the changes. What is crucial is that the employee is given tasks which demand something of a higher quality than before, and that the new tasks are on a higher level.) – BCA, clause 2.5.3,1a
  2. Made an extraordinary work effort (beyond what is expected) – BCA, clause 2.5.3,
