My boss didn’t pay me all of my earned SALARY this week!?
I started a new job last month, and I received an offer letter for a base salary plus benefits compensation of $350 in addition to the salary. The pay checks are disbursed 15th and 30th each month. I recieved my full base salary last month, but benefit compensation was not included. Then on the 14th of this month, I was paid a little over half of what was owed to me, and no additional compensation for the medical benefits was provided. He has been paying me via personal checks, but I completed my I9 and W4 as well as accepted in writing his offer back on the 14th of February. I was offered the position of “salesman” and now he has labled me as his “business development manager”, and after he shorted me nearly $1250 yesterday wants me to manage and direct the sales team while he is away on vacation in Burmuda for 10days! He also OVERPAID 1 salesman and appropriately paid the other 2! I deserve to be paid what was agreed/offered! How do I get my money & keep my job? Please help!
I have signed acknowledgement between both parties that clearly defines the terms of my employment and compensation…yes, I suppose this is a contract.
Tell him to pay you what he promised to or you will quit your job and sue him for breech of contract!! Don’t let it go!
Reject job offer based on corporate rank?
It almost seems silly, but I recently verbally accepted a job offer. When I received the offer letter a couple days later, however, the corporate ‘level ranking’ was a notch lower than I had anticipated (based on the salary compensation). Even though the job requirements and salary compensation are identical, I am inclined to either negotiate the higher ‘level’ or reject the offer. Are the any job hunting experts out there that would see an issue with negotiating or rejecting the written offer after verbal acceptance?
Call HR and and the hiring manager and tell them that you were under the impression that you would be brought in at the higher corporate rank and negotiate.
You may not get the rank you want right now, but if you are hired in at the upper pay levels for any given rank you can expect promotion fairly soon. Indeed many corporations won’t hire anyone in and pay in the top half of the rank just to avoid the issue.
Hope this helps
stay home mom deserve a salary???
DEAR ABBY: I need your help with something. My 16-year-old grandson seems to think that all his mother does is stay at home. He conveniently “forgets” that she is a housekeeper, gardener, cook, teacher, nurse, driver and mediator. Could you please print a breakdown of what a stay-at-home wife should be paid? I would love to have a list so I can pass the “bill” on to him. — VIVIAN IN COLONIAL BEACH, VA.
DEAR VIVIAN: According to the
Census Bureau figures for 2004 — which are the most recent — there are 36.7 million mothers of minor children in the United States. About one-third of them, 10.8 million, are stay-at-home moms.
According to an article penned by Al Neuharth, the founder of USA Today, in its May 11, 2006, edition, “Salary.com compensation experts estimate that stay-at-home moms work an average of 91.6 hours a week.” That’s more than double the number of hours the average office worker puts in. He went on to say, “That should be worth $134,121 annually.”
He quoted the compensation analysts as figuring the lowest-paying parts of a mother’s job are “housekeeper, laundry machine operator and janitor. Higher-paying categories include computer operator, facilities manager, psychologist and CEO.” With a 91.6-hour work week, 52 weeks a year, it works out to be $28.16 an hour.
It should go without saying that a mother’s love is priceless, so tell that grandson of yours that $28.16 an hour is a real bargain.
Eh.. What you’re forgetting is that my mom worked about 50+ hours a week at her paid job and then came home to try to do all these things also. Unfortunately it’s a fact of life..
I’d say if the son thinks that mom doesn’t do anything then he needs a few more chores to do around the house. I didn’t appreciate what my parent did around the house until I spent a few years in college living in my own filth and eating microwave dinners. I’ve recovered from that and have a better appreciation of what a pain in the ass I was as a kid.
