As others have said, you need to kick up an absolute stink about this. Any company - big or small - can work out the sums, and write you a cheque. Even messing up once with wages is not acceptable to me - as you said, people have bills! But twice is beyond ridiculous.
I’d firstly approach the manager and tell them that you literally can’t afford to live until you get paid. If nothing is happening (like with a half day) I’d approach HR in the guise of ‘there seems to be some mistake’. If neither of those yield any immediate results, approach your union. If you don’t have a union, I’d think it’s completely legit to go nuclear tbh. If it’s a small company / family owned place, I would push the emotional side, and then go nuclear.
Absolute bull that it can’t be resolved outside the payroll run. And even if it took them a load of hassle, so what. Anyone can make a mistake, but god you’d hope they’d hold their hands up and resolve it ASAP. But the same mistake twice, and claiming that there is nothing they can do? Bullsh*t.
Mrs O’Bumble on this forum is I think a HR practitioner. Be interested to read her views.
And your manager is either incompetent, or an absolute d*ck, or both. I don’t normally get THAT annoyed when replying to a post, but IMO you are being treated dreadfully. You’ve upheld your end of the deal (working your hours), and your employer has failed miserably at the most basic level (paying you for work completed. TWICE)
