I have started a work as a contractor in a renowned firm 2 months ago. Almost Everyone on my team is a contractor.
I have to submit an approved timesheet (by my manager) to my umbrella company, which in turn sends an invoice to the company I work for to get me paid.
This company has a "rule" that on the day the get the invoice, the will start the payroll and I will receive it in 30 days.
For my First month, I waited for 30 days from the date of invoice submission, and still not received the pay. And the second month will of course be paid more later.
I talked to my fellow contractors, and they say that they get paid maximum in a week's time.
I am confused as to what should I do. I do not want to discontinue my work, as I like it, and also I will be getting paid less if I skip days.
I have escalated the issue to my manager. But there is no strict action being taken until now.
please suggest how I should proceed, without jeopardising my relations with the manager.
