Paid in arrears query

Options
Hello, new poster here. Hope I'm adding this to the right section! I'm due to start a new job on the 14th November & I'm a little confused about the pay. My contract states:

''The commencing salary for this post is £10,815, to be paid in equal monthly instalments in arrears by direct credit transfer. This salary is pro rata the full-time equivalent salary of £21,630''

Payday is the 26th of each month.

Am I right in thinking I won't be paid at all in November, but just paid a bit extra in December?

Thank you for any help :)

    You would need to ask the payment period. Ie is it 1st - 31st paid in arrears on 26th of a month, or 26th - 25th paid in arrears on 26th month... Etc, many different versions. 
    Forty and fabulous, well that's what my cards say....

    the only place you'll get the answer to this is from your new employer. 

    If you were with my employer, someone starting on 14th would be unlikely to be paid on 26th, because we 'close' payroll by 10th of the month and 'check' it a few days after that, ready for payment on 25th (or last working day before 25th). That payment covers the full calendar month, so in December you'd be paid for a whole month, plus whatever you'd worked in November.

    And again, if you were with my employer, we'd tell you who to ask if you needed an advance on what we owed you for November. 

    It's an entirely reasonable question, and I'd encourage you to ask it, because I don't think you're coming to work for us. :-)
