As you probably know it was the Firm request that everyone be paid monthly. Unfortunately NSW legislation provides for employees to be paid fortnightly upon request. There is no legal requirement for employees in states other than NSW to be on a frequency other than what is determined by the employer. Therefore we do not have a fortnightly payroll in any other states and I am sorry to advise that we cannot accommodate your desire to remain a fortnightly paid employee. We could offer to grant you an advance today, if authorised by HR representative, which can float you until Wednesday. You should discuss this with your manager and HR. The expectation is that this advance of salary will be recouped from your next monthly pay.
Not happy at all to discovering that moving to Melbourne ment moving to monthly pay system.
