Basic pay
« on: 02-02-20, 09:27PM »
What does basic pay mean on the payslip, is it the contracted hours times the hourly rate, as i seem to be on alot less than last years and my hours and days are the same.

If it's a normal 4 week period with no sick , no holidays and no bank holidays then yes , basic pay would be hours per week times hourly rate times 4 .

Bear in mind if you have any 'minus hours' e.g because of a bank holiday these will lower the basic pay.

Little bit off topic, but was hoping someone could help me out. I'm just going over my hours now, working out how much I am due to be paid.  One thing I'm a little unsure of is the cut off dates.  As far as I'm aware, the cut off dates for overtime is the Thursday the week before payday (30/01/20, and for contracted hours, the Saturday after payday (15/02/20) Is this right?

Has anyone else had post tax adjustment this month?

Anyone had this I can only assume this is to do with the tax owed.

National living wage goes up to £8.72 an hour next month.

Not sure if this is the right thread to ask on but I have been told I might have to go into work all next despite being booked in for a holiday week. I've been told I will be paid both my holiday pay and pay for the hours I work on top of that (so two lots of pay for same day sometimes). Is this right/above board and possible please?

no its not not least because you will be proper stiffed for tax as you will have used your tax allowence for the week with your holiday pay and will pay the higher rate for the weeks work.

Why are they telling you that you have to work your weeks holiday?

It was busy all over the weekend and they're seeing how it goes this week and if it's still the same they want me to go in on my holidays next week. My manager just said he wants me to sign a form so I get paid for both a holiday and the work I do if I do have to go in. That's all he told me!

Don't do it, just because he told you to!  You won't get paid, Tesco are renowned for cocking up ordinary payments, plus you will pay more tax and NI on the double pay, if they do get it right.

If you're prepared to go in, then ask to have your holiday carried over to next year and ask him to sign a letter stating that fact. Bear in mind though, legally, employees should have a certain amount of time away from the workplace...am unsure of the time length though?? Anyone???

How many hours are you contracted to?

My point was that if you are say contracted to 30 hours but agree to work and be paid for holidays you'll flag up on a report for not getting rest time and being paid too much in one week.
