I am a visiting music teacher in a private school. We are paid according to how many individual pupils we have and per 30 minute session. Up until now I have been paid monthly on account, with the balance owing paid at the end of each term.

Now they want to pay us for the number of sessions we teach at the end of the month following the month that they are worked. For example, lessons given in January will not be paid until the end of February. Also we will not be paid at all in January or August. Apparently this is a "cost cutting" exercise.

They plan to draw up new contracts incorporating this new payment system before the new term starts.

What I am wondering is, is this legal? It would put me to a great deal of financial inconvenience.

Well IMHO they can, I expect the number of sessions will be calculated at the end of each month, with you receiving you fee at a date the next month, that in its self is not unusual.

You need to find out if you are a contractor, rather than an employee, I expect that you can either accept the arrangement or walk away.

You have not said why fees wont be paid in January, and August.
