    Advance/Arrears pay - HELP!! 14th Jun 17 at 7:22 PM
    My former employer pay 2 weeks in advance and 2 weeks in arrears with pay date falling on/around 15th of every month. I started working there on 4th July (roughly two weeks before pay date) and left on 30th May (roughly two weeks after pay date).

    I have not received any paperwork confirming when my final pay was/would be, or if I owe any holiday etc. and my P45 is dated (confusingly) 15th May.
    Am I correct in thinking that I will receive part of my monthly salary on 15 June or was 15 May my final pay?

    The payment in May should be for your final salary. It would have been your final salary even if your last day was 31st May, since you are normally paid mid-month for a period covering you until the end of the month.

    You may, or may not, be owed some holiday pay, but of course no-one on here can tell you whether you are or not! I suggest you work out where you are in your holiday year, how much leave you have taken and who owes who money!
