    What will I be paid?

    What will I be paid? 18th Sep 19 at 7:21 PM
    I started a new job on the 2nd Sept and in my contract it says the pay period starts on the first calendar day of the month and ends on the last calendar day of that month. The pay day is the 20th of every month and if you start before the 5th of the month you will receive your first month's remuneration on the 20th of that month but if you started after the 5th you wouldn't receive it until the 20th of the following month.

    My question is as I started before the 5th will I be paid for what I worked/will have worked from the 2nd Sept-30th sept on the 20th of this month?

    I'd expect to be paid on the 20th for 1-30th of the month, working 3 weeks in arrears and one week ahead.

    In your situation I'd therefore expect to be paid on the 20th for 2-30th.

    Crazy idea....

    What not speak to payroll? You won’t get in trouble!

    Most (that I have worked for) will advance you if dates don’t fall favourably, just have a chat....

    If you use internet banking you should see the pending deposit today.

    Also if I was getting paid on the 20th I would have expected a payslip to have been issued by now.

    So why are you wasting your time asking people that have no influence on the outcome?

    Your headline question was "what" you would be paid. If you are asking what sum will be paid. we can only guess.

    Unless Sundays would be a normal working day for you, the generous employer would pay you a whole month's salary. Otherwise they may use a method such as dividing a month's salary by 30 (for September) and multiplying by 29 or work out on an annual basis.

    We don't know what system you employer uses.
