Help!! My dd understand her wage-slip please

(19 Posts)
Hahaha26 Sat 31-Aug-19 14:13:19

My dd has just started her Saturday job and has now received her pay slip, can’t quite understand it;

Contact is 7.5hrs/week
Hourly rate is £6.74
The first part of her slip says paid £219.77

So we understand this is;
6.74 x 7.5 x 52 weeks divided by 12 months = £219.77

The part we don’t understand;
She started on Saturday 10th August
Contacted hours are 7.5hrs saturdays
Wage period is 1st - 31st August
So we understood she wouldn't be paid for Saturday 3rd August.

They have taken off £57.48 which is 8.5hrs, we understand this will be something to do with starting on the 10th and pro rata rather than just the missed 7.5hrs, but can’t quite work out the maths??

Any help appreciated

Just ask them. Honestly. They can provide answers far more than randomers online.

She should ask her employer. Simple.

She just wanted to understand it today, office opens Monday.

Is she salaried (a set monthly amount) or paid per hour she works?

What do the deductions say on the pay slip? Have they taxed her?

Had she been emergency taxed? I always am the first month.

Hahaha26 Sat 31-Aug-19 14:21:49

She is contracted 7.5hrs per week.
Overtime is paid in addition but no overtime as yet.

No tax or national insurance.

Can you blank out any identifying details and post a picture of the breakdown on the payslip.

AmIThough Sat 31-Aug-19 14:22:29

How many hours did she work in August?

Hahaha26 Sat 31-Aug-19 14:23:08

The deduction just says salary adjustment £57.48

So understand it’s because she hasn’t completely a full month, just not quite understanding the amount.

Comefromaway Sat 31-Aug-19 14:23:23

She can be contracted for 7.5 hours but is it itemised as a monthly salary or is she paid by the hour (in which case a payslip has to have a breakdown by law of hours worked) ?

Hahaha26 Sat 31-Aug-19 14:23:43

Saturday 10th, 17th, 24th, 31st all at 7.5 hrs.

Hahaha26 Sat 31-Aug-19 14:24:54

Monthly salary

AmIThough Sat 31-Aug-19 14:32:21

Can you show it to us?

Your maths is slightly off (only by 72p) because if they calculated it in the way you're suggesting it'd be (7.5 x 52) x 6.74. That divided by 12 equals £219.05

But it makes no sense to deduct an extra hour.

somewheresorted Sat 31-Aug-19 14:33:59

Normally in retail and if a permanent member of staff the annual salary is divided by 12 to give the monthly salary. This is then divided by the amount of days in the month and in your DD’s case multiplied by the amount of days worked, so it’s regardless of the actual hours worked.

Thanks for your help, I’ll get a copy of the wage slip to post

You need to just ask them

£219.77 is £6.76 ph

Just ask them. I'm a Payroll Manager and get questions like this all the time.

Sounds to me like they have made an error and deducted 8.5 hours instead of 7.5 for that first Saturday.
