Not getting paid overtime

17 Apr 2019, 13:09

So it's the third week in a row where I've been underpaid for overtime- I've spoken to the manager and the guy who does the overtime about this- they said I would be paid for it this week. Well I've just got my payslip and I've been under paid again- by at least a few hours. It's getting ridiculous now and I'm seriously thinking of quitting- it seems like they're deliberately not trying to pay me. I will have to speak to them again now to find out why- they will tell me don't worry you'll get it next week- but fourth time in a row- nope, still underpaid. I don't know what else to do now, I mean I don't even claim for breaks which I could do- I just want what I've worked for. Is there anything else I can do? It's just annoying me now, I don't like having to constantly approach them the next day after my payslip to ask about it. The way the overtime is done is unprofessional, such a poor system. It doesn't even give you a break down of your weekly overtime on payslip- it just says weekday overtime. I keep a note of all the hours overtime I've worked so I know I'm right. Should I go to the union at this point?

Tell them that until they start paying the correct overtime payments you will not be doing any further overtime, ie cutting off. Alternatively tell them that you deem the non payment as an unauthorised loan and will be invoicing the company accordingly including a very high percentage interest rate and a £25 admin fee. Job done.

This is the best one. Send a letter to your DOM holding him personally responsible for the deficiencies in your overtime payment and that if these errors are not corrected by next weeks payday you will be filing a claim under the Small Claims Court citing him as the person responsible.

Had a similar problem years ago, I was short 2 hours for 3 weeks speaking with the manager & person who dealt with the OT on a couple of occasions throughout that period. After the 3rd non-payment, I walked into his office the next day I was in & said that if I was still short the 2 hours in the 4th weeks pay when I check it on Friday, I would be claiming my 2 hours back on the Saturday essentially finishing 2 hours early, he promptly got me a fresh OT sheet & got me to sign it & it was all sorted.

3 weeks to get paid 2 hours was taking the absolute piss I don't know if it was deliberately intentional or just incompetence on several levels, but it was still unacceptable, I know it was only 2 hours, but it was the principle of it. I'm sure if I had made good on my threat though that there would have been conduct code repercussions, but there should have been repercussions for failure to get paid correctly for 3 weeks.

There are no repercussions, that's why this fraud will continue for ever.

From the Managers viewpoint it is a win for them or worst case break even.

My advice is don't work Over Time tell the manager you cannot complete with a witness and bring it back for them to do or sort out they will soon repent as their leisure will be curtailed!

Balancing the books. They do it in our office. Put in a grievance, it’ll soon change. Fraud, it sure is. Good job it’s not a real company.
