Been a little while since my last post. Today I ask something different of those of you kind enough to have a read.
Although not looking to run a Jim’ll-Fix it style ‘HR help’ blog, I kindly ask of your help.
I’ve been asked a few questions and for advice from a friend of mine in a quandary with their employer. Unsure of what would be the best solution, I thought to turn to the advice of a large network of brilliant HR professionals that I connect with on Twitter week in, week out.
Any advice or comments would be greatly appreciated int he comments below!
The message I was sent is as follows:
Just looking for some HR advice, Here goes…
Having a few salary issues at work and not sure what I can do…
There are 3 main parts really:
1) Mileage claim:
I drove to a networking event in Wakefield (120miles each way) with permission from my Manager now company have refused to pay the mileage as it would have been cheaper to get the train and I didn’t do this even though my manager knew I intended to drive and never said anything.
It came to light end of July that I’ve been underpaid for last 2 years. My employer although confirming this have refused to back pay the underpaid amount.
3) Amendment to salary:
Since they have been made aware of the salary underpayment they won’t authorize my salary to be amended to correct pay grade from now, making me start at the bottom of the band (so I’ll have to work a further 2 years to get to where I should be now) Meaning I’ll always be 2 years behind where I should rightfully be.
And all this following the fact that they have all of a sudden just decided cut my hours in half from 01.08.13….
Hope this makes sense… I feel a bit lost and mistreated.
Is there anything I can do? If so, where do I start??
