What should I do if my pay check shows fewer hours than I have actually worked?

Time flies! Another week has passed at work and you know what that means: time to get paid! You look expectantly at your bank account, but you come to the conclusion that the payout is rather low. The inspector in you pops up and you start investigating. You take out your pay slip and see that according to the pay slip, you have worked fewer hours than you actually have. Help! Now what!?

It is important to stay calm in this situation because problems are there to be solved. First of all, check what is on your pay slip: are there any things that don't seem right? Then contact your interim consultant, as they are there to help you! Tell your consultant what exactly is going on.

Next, your consultant will defend your rights. They will contact the company you work for and ask where things went wrong. If it turns out that there was a mistake made by the company, the situation will be corrected. You will then receive an extra payment so that you finally get the money you have worked for.

It is important to mention that you should always remain calm in this situation. Do not get angry or take matters into your own hands. Leave this to your interim consultant. They are there to make sure that everything is fine.
