I been offered a job and few things that concerns me while signing the contract, things like while i was in there,
the pay was told 24k, but in contract it said 22k
, moreover the contract says,
"You will be required to provide 24/7 out of hours on-call support. When on-call you will not be entitled to additional pay as this is incorporated into your pay detailed above."
also i was confused to read the following, don't know what it means
If you work more than six consecutive hours per day you are entitled to a 30 minute unpaid break.
and the following
The Company may require you to perform a reasonable amount of work in addition to
your normal hours of work, depending on the needs of the business. You are entitled to
receive your normal rate of pay for the hours worked.
For the avoidance of doubt, any overtime worked over and above your guaranteed
hours is included within your salary. No additional payment is made for overtime.
Short-Time Working and Lay Off:
The Company reserves the right to introduce short time working on proportionately
reduced pay or a period of temporary lay off without pay (with the exception of any
statutory entitlement) where this is necessary to avoid redundancies, where work cannot
be performed due to exceptional circumstances, or where there is a shortage of work.
I had been working 28k on my last job, but as they offered me this and i don't like to sit idle, i wanted to accept but what the clauses says are somewhat a little unsettling.
What points should I keep in mind, when accepting a offer?
Edit : They also will keep 1 week salary and will release when one leave the company
