do you think they're doing this on purpose or is this because of a genuine problem?spuds wrote:Hey,
I'd appreciate some advice, but mostly I'd like to vent!
I started working for a local company here in January. There were problems getting my EP sorted out as their HR didn't know how to do it, as a result I couldn't open a bank account in time for the January pay roll and I didn't get paid until mid-Feb (by cheque in the end). I had to constantly chase up HR to get my EP (IIRC it took over 20 days!), then to get them to enter my bank details in their system. I brought this to the attention of my boss who was oblivious and said he thought it had already been taken care of.
In February, I didn't get paid on time again I had to chase HR for weeks. They said there was a payroll problem and somehow I was being skipped by the system - it was probably the 3rd week of March before I got my February salary. I informed my boss of this repeated problem, he assured me it wouldn't happen again.
I got paid on time for March as a result and a phone call from the CFO to follow up.
Then I got paid late for April, ~15 days late and the excuse was there was an issue with their bank.
In 5 months, I've been paid on time once. It's causing me and my partner no end of stress as while she's always paid on time we both have our rent, bills etc to pay. I've had to transfer money from my long term savings at home to meet our financial commitments. And it's really affecting my performance in work. I've tried to help out as much as I can - I worked over public holidays, I've worked 24 hours and plenty of unpaid overtime to help meet deadlines. I feel pretty f**king stupid at this point TBH for being taken advantage of. I don't even know if I'll get paid on time this month:(
As the trailing spouse it took me roughly 8 months to get so much as an interview. I can't just drop this job as much as I really want to
Do I have any course of action here or do their convenient excuses about every month's salary cover their backsides?
