    Do employees expect yearly raise?  Should I pay back pay for raise not given until a few months after year review?

      I manage a small performing arts school. One of my employees (has been with me for 3 years now) just had her yearly review and I gave her a $0.50 raise per hour. Her yearly review was supposed to be in September and I held off as I have been discussing her raise with the owner until now. She asked me if her raise would be eretroactive since that's when her review was supposed to take place. The owner asked me to investigate this.

      Do employees expect raises every year? We are a small business, not a large company. Business is profitable, but not much. Should I give make her raise retroactive, or effective this pay session? Please let me know any thoughts. Thanks!
