    Default Certification Exam Error

    My question involves business law in the state of: Pennsylvania

    In September I sat for a well known IT certification exam. I was informed in mid October that I had failed the exam. I was later informed in mid November that an error had been made in scoring my exam and I did in fact pass the exam.

    My contract with my company provides for a pay increase upon my completing this certification. The error in grading the exam has cost me almost a months worth of pay increase.

    I have already written to the certifying company and asked them about the possibility of compensation for the lost wages. If they don't agree, do I have a legal claim for small claims court?

    Thank you.

    You can ask for whatever you want to ask. I expect them to say "no", and would I expect a court to find that the compensation issue is between you and your employer. Even if we assume that the contract you signed with the company in relation to the exam doesn't hold them harmless, there's a question of foreseeability.
