There are a couple of issues/mistakes in my contract, one of which states that I shall work 29 hours per week. However, I am scheduled to work Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and two Saturdays a month. Saturday working hours are from 11am-6pm and all other days 11am-7pm.
3 days at 8 hours is 24 hours
If I calculate on the basis of 4 Saturdays a month, my calculation is 14 hours / 4 weeks, which comes out at 3.5 hours p/week.
So, in theory I should only be working 27.5 as opposed to 29 hours, in writing.
I am getting a flat monthly fee, so I am trying to calculate how many overtime hours I am working, but at the current calculation I am consistently under-time even when I work all the full days I am supposed to work.
My question is, seeing as there are some months with 5 Saturdays and some with 4, is my calculation correct? Is there a calculation that is used in HR to determine what that hourly work rate should be?
