didn't get all of paycheck

  1. Omg, I just got "paid" and several hundred dollars isn't there.Its not anything like insurance either isnt there. I wonder if they've credited someone else for my shifts since I frequently get called someone else's names. Ugh!!Now I am going to have to run from office A to office B and fill out more paperwork to try and get my money that I worked like a dog for that they should have paid me in the first place.Sometimes I wonder if they make "mistakes" (although this is a huge one) to see how many ppl dont notice.

    I try to be positive when stuff like this happens, prefer to believe in simple human error rather than massive conspiracy

    Not to be too simple here, but are you sure you calculated the taxes, etc correctly? Or are the hours themselves wrong? If the hours match the dollar amount per hour, the gross total should be correct. It might tell you if it was a computer miscalc, or a human input error.

    Either way, it shouldn't be hard to fix

    I am not getting paid for the hours I worked it appears.

    I just hope you don't work where I do. It takes them at LEAST 2 pay periods to get you any missed hours or whatnot.

    It just upsets me because I know someone else who works where I work that didnt get paid for around 3 days of work mysteriously.She had to fill out a lot of paperwork and she still didnt have the money the next pay period :uhoh21:

    Sounds like this is happening then, to more than just you. Perhaps upper management needs to be aware of these errors. Perhaps personnel adjustments need to be made in payroll.


    We had the same problem......after so many complaints and administration heat she quit, and paychecks have been problem free since!

    One of my duties as a nurse manager was to check the time cards of the nurses on my unit against the master work schedules kept by the nursing office as well as a copy of the work schedules that I had to make sure that each person's time card reflected that they had been in and worked on the days they had been scheduled and that their day of work was being charged to the correct nursing unit (in the event they were floated or had come in on a day off and worked an extra day on another unit). This was a big task that consumed most of the morning of the day of each unit manager on the day the time cards were due in payroll. If you were scheduled for 10, 8-hour shifts, then we double-checked to make sure there were 10 clock-in and clock-outs on your time card or we started looking for the discrepancy and/or got you on the phone to reconcile why you had missing days if we couldn't track the problem down.

    Maybe the person doing your time cards wasn't, or isn't, that careful.

    When a check is cut that is short, the employee had to first notify their manager. What I, as a manager, would do is immediately notify the person in the payroll department who was responsible for running the payroll. What they would do is pull your timecard and find out what happened. If your time card showed short hours, then it would be thrown back to me to talk with you and reconcile why hours you worked didn't show up on your time card. If there was a mistake made by the payroll department, then a check to make up the balance owed to you would be cut that day and given to you. If the mistake was on your part (failure to clock in or out) then you generally had to wait a few days for the corrected check.

    This was happening frequently where I work, and they expected the nurses to wait and wait for their hard-earned pay. Finally, I told them to take me off the schedule until they payed me what they owed me. I was given the correct pay THAT DAY. And they haven't made a mistake with my paycheck since. When nurses stop behaving like wimps and whiners, then management will stop using us as doormats.

    I experienced the exact opposite of what happened to you. I was working for the university I attend in a part-time temporary grant position. Well, the last check I received had an extra $2,000 attached to it! My manager had told me that I would receive a larger paycheck because they had to empty the grant account, but she never specified how much. Thus when I saw an extra $2000 was direct deposited into my bank account, I was suprised. THANKFULLY I chose not to spend any of it because a week later the HR department called me and said they made a huge mistake. I had to write them a $2000 check because they were not able to go back in and remove the direct deposit.

    Stay on top of this until it is resolved. I had a few pay discrepancies with my last employer and did not resolve them at the time. Now it is so long, and I just don't want to have to deal with them. Part of my problem was that there were disagreements over the pay and it was requiring a big "discussion" on my part or a trip to the Labor Board to get them to take up the matter. Who wants to go to the Labor Board to get their pay? So keep on it now. It's your earned money.

    Doesn't even sound legal, what they did....they used your account to "empty a grant account" that likely should have been "emptied" according to the grant regulations they agreed to when they received it.

    And it sounds like they hid it in an employee's account, where they knew they could "find" it later! And sure enough, they requested a check made payable to the facility, where it could be used however they saw fit, right? Not according to the grant agreement?

    Something's way fishy there.

    I never really looked at it that way. You are right now -- it sounds very fishy now that I look back on it.
