    Hi guy

    I have been working from January and my contract runs out in August. I have been paid from January and up till now the total gross has been roughly £7,000 (£1k per month). My contract states £17,476 pro rata which equates to approximately £12,953. Can someone explain how I will be paid the rest as I imagine I would not be paid after August?

    The finance lady replied: I have not had your leaving date confirmed yet, but I assume(as you went up at the last day of term), your contract is terminating at the end of August, you will receive your normal monthly salary at the end of August along with your P45 which you will need to give you your new employer.

    So by the end of August I would be paid around £9,000. How will I be paid the rest £12,953- £9000 = £3,953?

    Thanks

    Think your math is wrong and you need to fo through it with payroll. I would hazard a guess you are not going to be paid a bug lump sum at the end.

    Jan-August is 8 months so thats 8/12 x 17476?= 11,650

    Look at your salary slip to verify the gross and the net amounts, sounds like net and not gross to me.

    The £12,953 is stated in my contract. I have just looked at my payslip for my Total Gross Pay up till now: £7,517. Assuming I get paid £1k in August there still remains a big deficit?

    EDIT: Contract says £17,476 pro rata. The pro rata equates to approximately £12,953 per annum inclusive of annual leave entitlement. Does that mean 12953/12 * 8??

    Contract states 32.5 hours per week. It's in a school so the summer holidays have started. I started in January as opposed to September.

    which isnt really full time normally its between 35-40hrs a week.

    Only payroll or looking at the documents can show you hwo the money has been figured out.

    I wouldn't hold my breath that they have been underpaying you all this time and theres a big fat amount of money at the end. Yiu need to go to payrioll to clear it up.

    Np. I can only guess, but if I could see the payslip or had all the details at hand, then it would be easier to make sense of. payroll are normally helpful, maybe just go there in person if you can and ask nicely. Id expect it to be correct, but they should go through it with you. It will be easier to do it whilst you work there rather than after you have left. Im just cautious about there being a big amount unpaid, which isnt to rain on your parade but better not to be disappointed. I bet its one of the simple reasons weve discussed, but do check for peace of mind..


    The only thing you might benefit from is if whether you had any trax free allowance spare, which you can check with HMRC.

    No[e.Payroll are your best bet. I just meant someone will help you make sense of it and there will be an obvious explanation. If you think you have been underpaid then query it, until satisfied.

    I work in a school on a similar pro rata pay on 32.5 hours a week and I can tell you that appoximately 1000 per month is right

    what you need to factor in is that a. you only work 32.5 hours our of 38 which takes you down to 14,957 immediately for the full year, you're also probably not getting paid for 52 weeks, I get paid for 47 weeks out of 52 which takes you down to 13519 which is closer to the figure you've been quoted

    you then have about 13.5k pay for the 12 months and you get 8/12 of that which is 9012 altogether, obviously your contract may be different in terms of how many weeks you're paid for etc which could bring it down a bit further

    it sounds like you've been paid right you just haven't factored in the pro rata meaning you don't work all the weeks or full time hours
