So, the deal I made when moving to my current co was that I wanted X. They weren't prepared to pay X, so offered X-Y*, raising to X after a satisfactory 3 month probation period. All of this was negotiated via an agent - I think you can see where this is going...

After glowing performance reviews, my employer deny having these conversations with the agent. The agent has not written anything down, but insists that the conversations did take place.

Anybody got any thoughts or opinions** on the matter?

* Y is a reasonable amount of money, not life changing.
** "Agents are evil" or any variant thereof is not a helpful opinion, given that we all already know it.
*** In the UK, so US laws don't apply. Also, where did you find 3 asterisks in the main text?
