    Starting Job on Last Day of Month

    Starting Job on Last Day of Month 12th Oct 16 at 1:40 PM
    Hello everyone, I'm starting a job on the last day of the month (as it is a Monday) but have been told that we get paid on the last day of each month.

    Does this mean I will be working a day of October but not getting paid for it?

    This is a Monday to Friday, salary based job.

    Thanks for any info or advice.

    No you will not be working one day unpaid. That day will be paid in your first pay at the end of October.

    Yes. It will be the last day of November and it will include payment for the additional day.

    There is nothing special about your case. This happens everywhere. In fact in some larger companies payroll is finalised a couple of weeks before they payment date meaning depending when you join the company you may be getting 6 weeks pay in your first pay packet (though you will be working a month and a half for it).

    I've done this a couple of times and in the first month you just get a one or two day 'bonus'.

    you honestly thought youd work on the last day of october and get paid 5pm that same day as thats the day everyone else gets paid? -

    depending on the cut off point it will be the following month..... clearly starting on the very last day of a month, you will not get that days worth on that payday.... it will be the following month -

    thats why its best to start a company on a fresh day month not half way in or end of the month.

    No, I did not think I was going to get paid on my first day hence my response to the first person who commented on my post.

    Sorry, I misinterpreted your original post. I thought you meant you had started on the last day of September. Missed the 'I will be starting'.

    As has been said by others, that single day will be paid with your November pay. Apologies for any confusion caused.

    I got paid in one job on the 28th of each month (unless it was a weekend or BH, the previous Friday) and the cut off date was the 21st or the Friday before if a weekend day.

    Your new employer may have similar cut off point to this - though maybe 23rd. So if, for example do overtime the week before payday, you will get it the following month's pay.
