    Okay, I basically have recently started a job at a pretty big publishing company as an inhouse freelancer. I work full time, so im pretty much an employee in ever as aything but name. However I get paid the same way as a freelancer would ie:sporadically. I started on the first of november, and told I wouldn't be paid at the end of the first month, but the end of the second month (november). I

    I've not been paid yet, and have had to borrow two months living expenses and rent off my parents. I'm now owed £2,500 none of which I've seen yet and it's really getting to me, as it's really hard to live like this( even though I was told if i hand my invoice in at a certain time each month I'll be paid on time). I have my editors email address to ask him what's going on but I don't want to disturb him with work stuff at Christmas, furthermore my publishing house doesn't open till next Tuesday either. But as things stand i have no money for new years/ to do anything. UGH!

    Ask him. Chances are it may be a problem with the payroll or whatever, and they'll want to know.

    Yes of course you should email him and just ask what's happening with your pay as you thought you would of been paid by now. You are due that money, email him! x

    Okay, thanks for the replies. I feel a bit mean asking him when he's on his christmas break, but at the same time I'm being massively massively inconvenienced.

    Don't say that you've expected to be paid but instead ask him if he knows when you'll start receiving your pay.

    I've just emailed him now. i'm really worried that this will be going on for a at least a year (That's how long my freelance contract is). Im a young person with no savings to speak of and have borrowed the rent from my parents (albiet late to my landlord) for the past two months. One of the older irregular freelancers says he has missing payments from july/august and I overheard one of the editorial staff saying the accounts team were useless. Im really worried that i'm going to be continually paid irregularly even though im handing my inovices in on time as instructed.
