So I have another question regarding my current job, related to receiving salary. It seems the company's payroll works between the 21st and the 21st of next month, and since I've started working on the 11th, I'll only receive 2 weeks salary this month. Well, I've only been told this last Friday and was a bit shocked. Before I started working I came to the office one day to sign the contract and they didn't tell me this (I'm guessing they forgot to) and it's also not on the contract. The thing is, I'll only be receiving 2 weeks of work this month and that kinda puts me on the red line...
Before I started working here, one of my clients as a freelancer was a marketing agency and I stopped working for them when I started here. If I knew this about the salary beforehand, I would continue working for them on my free time at home until the end of the month, so I'll have more money this month.
Well, but the thing this, I've brought a client I had whilst freelancing into this new company I'm working now and I've asked the owner of the company if I could invoice this client myself this month and then next month it would be his company invoicing him. Well, it seems he was astonished by my question, he even replied to my email with the HR company as Cc, saying that he doesn't think that's fair since the work I've done was from his premises and that cannot be done. I guess so, but the client was mine before, and it's also not fair that they didn't mention to me before about the salary dates! This is something important that I needed to know when I started! Well, my boyfriend also works for one of his companies and he's even blaming him for not telling me that about the salary, when this was his responsibility, not my boyfriend's!
I'm a bit sad about all this to be honest, not because he said no when I asked to work from home one day per week, and now said no again to my request, but because of the way he now responded to my email, all shocked with my request! Well, if it wasn't me, there wouldn't be any client in the first place...
I'm starting to miss so much my freelance work, not having to go trough other's rules and being my own boss. Oh how I miss that now! Please give me some advice. Thank you in advance!
