I work at a relatively small software company, and have done so for around 6 months. When I landed the job I was told the employment contract would be signed on my first day, and since I have asked the upper management multiple times for a contract. However each time I ask I'm told that it will be done in a month or two, and nothing is ever done about it.
I hate to be one to complain about small things, however at this rate I will have lost a large chunk of workplace pension contribution. It would seem silly to leave my job over such a small detail, but given the number of times I am starting to suspect this may be a deliberate ploy. I'm perfectly happy with my job apart from this, and others seem happy with my progress and contributions.
Is this behaviour typical within the industry? What is the best way of dealing with this situation? Is it worth moving on if other opportunities arise if this keeps happening?
