Ok I am still at school but have a part time job in a supermarket at 13 hours a week. I always get paid that fine, works out as 248 a month roughly and I get paid that fine.
However, most months I do extra hours which are given to me by the manager/supervisor.
In October and November I did a couple each month, only like 6 or so which is about £30. I didn't get paid these hours right at the end of the month, and told the manger and they got added to the next months. So for Octobers I finally got paid in December and I just got paid for Novembers now.
However, in December I did a lot of extra hours, some at triple time (eg. new years eve, christmas eve, boxing day etc.) and these totalled to about 45 hours/200ish pounds. I didn't get paid for any of these today, and I should have and some other people did.
I couldn't get my pay slip since they don't arrive until tomorrow. But I know there will just be another discussion and I might end up getting some of the money.
However, I need the money now, not at the end of january, and I can also envisage them only paying me single time even though my supervisor told me they were triple.
Can I make them pay me them in advance like next week, and not in a month? Since I should have gotten them today. Can they legally keep doing this? Is there a point in complaining to the head office, it is a large supermarket chain?
Any advice from similar situations would be good.
I would start complaining to the wages department. If it's one of the big supermarkets chains, not paying you on time really isn't on.
It happened to me in my first job, but I was too shy to confront them about it!
Ever since then, I make a record of every hour I work and then check my payslip at the end of every month to make sure it all adds up!
I would go and speak to them about it and see how they have worked it out. They should be fine with it, considering it is your money they could be underpaying you. Good luck!
Most likely they have forgotten to put the overtime hours on, until you have reminded them. This is pretty commonplace in retail!
I from when I used to work in retail administration, you (i.e. your manager) could put in a request to payroll to BACS out the missing payment early.
You really need to stretch out your rights. It's your right to get paid in those hours. OT should be added to your salary.
