Getting someone into trouble at work? He deserves it.

AAAGGGGHHH, I had a promotion at work (I'm a teacher). My start date in the new role was Monday just gone. The HR person has known this was happening for over a month and was supposed to send my new contract, terms and conditions etc
He hasn't done it. I sent him emails on May 26th and 27th about it. Today I saw him and asked if he had seen the emails - he said he 'hadn't had a chance to read them'.
There is a bit of a back story - over the last six months he has made repeated mistakes with my pay and been impossible to contact or deal with. I had to go over his head in the end to get it sorted out. It still isn't right and I'm still owed money because of his mistakes.
I'm really furious not to have had a contract. We are trying to buy a house (in rented at the moment) and I need the contract now to apply for the new mortgage.
Anyway tonight I was so annoyed after work I sent him an email reiterating everything and CC'd it to our Head Teacher.
I know he'll hate me now. I don't care. AIBU?

I don't think you are! The guy sounds like an incompetent arse and the sooner that's highlighted, the better.

You've absolutely done the right thing. This man has caused you to suffer financially and is creating stress for you by his incompetence. I hope this ensures he gets his backside in gear and sorts things for you.

If his errors are due to over-work he needs to highlight this and ask for help. If he has done that and not received any help, your email will serve to highlight the fact.

Sooo, you may have done him a favour wink

YANBU - If he can't do his job then he would be found out anyway. You may have saved something worse from happening and he didn't seem to be very responsive to you when you tried reminding him politely. We all know how hard it can be to find a job in the current market, IMO he should have been doing his properly or face the consequences. Tough but fair. You haven't been nasty, just made sure someone higher up the food chain is aware of his incompetence. It's not up to you what action the Head takes afterall.

Hope you get the pay sorted out though, PITA!
