My partner has recently started work. Prior to signing the contract he was informed he would be paid on 15th of the month. 2 weeks is paid in advance. FIrst payment being in November. four days into the contract he was told he would not be paid until December 15th meaning he will have worked there for almost two months without being paid. Is this lawful?
Also his probationary period (6 months)indicates that he is not eligible for sick pay during this period, nor is he allowed to take any sick leave. I believe he would be entitled to SSP, but wondered whether it was lawful to not allow sick leave during a probationary period?
