Due to a lack of communication at my new place between HR and my boss it seems I won't be getting paid 'til 25th March. Unfortunately as no-one has bothered informing me of this slight detail I have been spending/saving as I do every month.

Fortunately (kind of) as I don't know the number for my Switch card I've been putting more than usual on my credit card. Though not exactly an ideal situation at least this means I have a little more left in my bank than I usually do as I can pay off my card next month (though, granted, with an ever higher amount).

The next 5 weeks should be interesting.

Hi LMU,

As an HR practitioner of many years, I suspect if your boss goes and sees them and says persuasively (<img src="/forum/images/graemlins/smash.gif" alt="" />) this is not a good introduction to the company for a new employee, can't we advance her two or three weeks salary, there is always a way it can be done!

Regards,

Andrew

I has been sorted (or so I've been told). HR are 'kindly' writing me out a cheque.

It's just like being back at my former employer. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/attentat.gif" alt="" />

I've come across this kind of old tosh and piffle before. It really annoys me, playing fast and loose with people who after all are a firm's greatest assett.

I've had problems when the inky fingered dlittle clerks in acccounts couldn't work out the salaries one month for some reason so they just didn't pay anyone! Rumblings of discontent were enough to move them - it was pointed out quite forcefully that they could either a) pay the same amounts as the previous month or B) make something up. In either case they could square it up the following month.

It's a total nonsense, it's very easy to pay people. You just have to write out a cheque. They can do that quick enough if the boss has to have his BMW serviced or a new computer gadget bought that somehow never appears in the office.

Ah, unions. I remember them.

Unfortunately they weren't really relevant to officey type salaried people. Except council workers of course who don't actually do anything anyway.

Stuff & nonsense T.I.M ! (if you'll pardon my saying so ?)

When the MD at one of my previous employers (in the insurance industry); for whom I had worked for ten years; announced that they had sold the company business on to another insurance company known for aggressive buy-outs, back in 1999 - I brought in my union (GMB) and they very successfully sued for several thousand pounds worth of redundancy monies that the purchasing company were obviously loth to part with.

The very satisfactory conclusion to this distasteful episode was that our MD had been taken on by the purchasing company as a newly created "Acquisitions Director" and had a remit to research and acquire further insurance businesses around the local region.

We found out about this and phoned around every single insurance company that we could find, in order to forewarn that they might be next to suffer the same disenfranchisement as ourselves and we were sometime later rewarded with the information that our (then) ex-MD had been "let go" by the purchasing company some six-eight months down the line - due to the fact that every company he had identified had mysteriously suddenly become full of union members who made any potential further acquisitions very much more difficult indeed !

Sadly (I seem to pick 'em !) my last employers, for whom I worked 5 years - also caused me to sic the union on them, because they could not follow established protocols after I broke my neck and slipped a disc in a road traffic accident.
The employers let me go - as is their unquestionable right - after my being 28 weeks on sick pay, but they then refused to settle my outstanding holiday pay and also effectively summarily dismissed me on the 197th. day of my sick-leave without offering the legally required contracted 5 weeks period of notice or pay in lieu of such notice.
This case has just gone to County Court and I am awaiting notification of the date of the hearing.

I guess that unions are just as useful as you care to make them !

OK fair enough, some office based industries are unionised! But many, the majority I would hazard, are not, certainly not in the "professions".

Now I'm a union man
Amazed at what I am
I say what I think, that the company stinks
Yes I'm a union man

When we meet in the local hall
I'll be voting with them all
With a hell of a shout, it's "Out brothers, out!"
And the rise of the factory's fall

Oh, you don't get me, I'm part of the union
You don't get me, I'm part of the union
You don't get me, I'm part of the union
Until the day I die
Until the day I die

The union has made me wise
To the lies of the company spies
And I don't get fooled by the factory rules
'cause I always read between the lines

And I always get my way
If I strike for higher pay
When I show my card to the Scotland Yard
And this is what I say:

Oh, oh, you don't get me, I'm part of the union
You don't get me, I'm part of the union
You don't get me, I'm part of the union
Until the day I die
Until the day I die

Before the union did appear
My life was half as clear
Now I've got the power to the working hour
And every other day of the year

So though I'm a working man
I can ruin the government's plan
And though I'm not hard, the sight of my card
Makes me some kind of superman

Oh, oh, oh, you don't get me, I'm part of the union
You don't get me, I'm part of the union
You don't get me, I'm part of the union
Until the day I die
Until the day I die

You don't get me, I'm part of the union
You don't get me, I'm part of the union
You don't get me, I'm part of the union
Until the day I die
Until the day I die

They's getting better - after handing me a cheque to see me through last month they managed to pay me both months wages on time this month, naturally taking off the amount they gave me...plus and extra £200!!!

Grrr....
