Hi everyone, I'm posting here for my partner who gave her notice at the end of the last summer term, but I think she's been paid less than she should have been. She gave her notice in plenty of time, but put her last day as her last teaching day (19th July) and was then paid pro-rata for July until the 19th, rather than a full months pay for that month and then that was it, nothing for August. I can see from reading other threads if she'd been a bit savvier she should have put 31st of August to ensure being paid until then. She was a teacher at a state school for over 12 years and was on a normal/ permanent contract/ burgundy book contract. My view is she has done all the working days for the year so should be paid for the 12 months and not for ten and a half months. She also was not a member of a union in the last year of her job, which on reflection was a mistake, but too late to change how. We have queried this with the school finance officer, but she says what she has been paid is right, but I think it's wrong. Can anyone help as she's lost a month and a half of pay having worked all the days in a year she should have done and seemingly for putting the last teaching day as her leaving day rather than the last day of summer holidays? Hope that makes sense. Very grateful for any help.
