German term or phrase: Anpassungen der Tarifentgelte
This is not really a question related to a specific term or phrase, rather the meaning of the entire sentence.

Could somebody confirm that what is meant here is that the salary will be increased by the minimum amount for the highest pay scale as part of any annual changes to the pay scales? Oder?

Danke i.v..

Das Festgehalt wird hierbei im Rahmen der jährlichen Anpassungen der Tarifentgelte mindestens um die Veränderung innerhalb der obersten Entgelttarifstufe angepasst.

Explanation:
Das Festgehalt wird im Rahmen der jährlichen Anpassungen der Tarifentgelte mindestens um die Veränderung innerhalb der obersten Entgelttarifstufe angepasst.


Literally: As part of the annual salary scale review process, the fixed part of the salary (one presumes other than bonuses and the like) will at the (very) least be adjusted in relation to changes within the highest category

In other words it must keep pmace with changes in the highest category of the scale but the process does not necessarily have to stop there.
