employment contract

    Hi there,

    Apologies if this is the wrong place to post this. I got a call in May from my current employer offering me a new job which I had applied for and been successful earlier this year. I got the contract with a start date for the beginning of June and signed it. However I am still in my old post and getting paid on the old rate and its mid July. I have queried this with HR and was told that I won't be paid on the new scale until I actually start the new job. Is this legal? I presumed once I had signed the contract I would get paid on the new rate regardless of whether I had moved over officially.

    Your new contract would presumably define your new job role, duties, place of work, etc.; if you aren't doing those duties yet, you most likely wouldn't have to be paid the associated rate. The real issue is, if your new contract listed the start date of your new role as early June, why haven't you started that role yet? That's what you should really be getting onto them about.
