Hello, my name is Ben and it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. What does your contract say about this?
my contract just says my company will guarantee to pay ten days pay per month but i will be required to carry days over
if i dont do any days in january then surely all my company are doing is loaning the money for january untill i work off the days in february ?
what are they trying to do - not pay you for the unworked days in a month
no they still pay me but i want to know is it legal for them to ask me to carry the days over to the next month ?
yes it certainly can be legal to do so, especially if it is mentioned in your contract. You are contracted to work a specific number of days a month and your pay is calculated on the assumption you will work these days. If you do not work the required number of days then the employer can either not pay you for these days or ask you to carry these over to ensure that you are paid for them
so would i be right in saying if i am only contracted to do ten days a month thats all i have to work in a one month period and anything over and above this would be classed as over time ?
yes, unless it is time carried over from a previous month as per the terms of your contract
