Reply To: Amendment 9 – Oh what fun!


It certainly doesn’t seem to make a whole lot of sense. I’ve just calc’d using the amendment 9 (and manager’s “Aide Memoire”) method and it does not tally at all.

I’d be tempted to take the later award as the one to use. Then work it out in accordance with the base method of calc’ing arrears.

i.e. award start date to award letter date x daily rate. Deduct from award and divide by remaining number of days in the award. That’s if they are weekly paid.

If they are 4 weekly it’s a bit more complicated (!).

Too much to go into here this late on a Friday – send me your email address and I’ll send you a gadget for working ’em out.

Are they 4 weekly or 1 weekly paid?
