Thread: Payroll Query

  1. #1

    Default Payroll Query

    So quick question for anybody in the know

    I am about to start a new job monthly paid - However I am concerned...
    The company do Payroll on the 20th of the month.

    With this date up and coming in less than 2 weeks - Would the company do payroll based upon 1st - 31st of the month where applicable and pay it on the 20th during that period (Like where some companies pay you on the 26th / 27th till the 31st for example?)

    Or would I only get paid a week if I started next Monday? Slightly worried?

    normally when a companies payroll is run before the end of the month, as mine is, it is for the whole month

    ie you get paid for the 1-31 even though the payroll is run on the 20th

    Would they consider an advance on your salary to enable you to get to work, FKO?

    That's pretty unreasonable - did they not offer anything ? I always pay at least 2 weeks by special transfer if someone misses payroll.

    This can be a problem with monthly payrolls where the cut-off date may be a couple of weeks before month end. If you miss the cut-off you may not get paid that month and have to wait 'til the following month.


    Having said that, I worked in the NHS with sufficiently flexible and sophisticated payroll systems to cater for these situations - late payments for new starters could be actioned quite easily. I presume this company doesn't have that flexible a system?


    Is it worth turning the job down because they won't pay you 'til next month? You may have the same issue with future jobs.


    But I'm not sure I'd want to work for an employer who couldn't sort this out for me.

    And neither would I - I think behind the scenes - The company werent told by the agency about my concerns.
    This is a problem. But its all good. I had a lower paid offer come through today which is more local to me and plus I have also been interviewing in London all day today.
    The Lower paid offer is still in the 20s... And I will get paid at the end of November... So a result. - Ive accepted it.
