How is my pay calculated?

Salaried employees receive one twelfth of their annual salary each month.  Casual workers will be paid based on timesheets submitted for hours worked at an agreed hourly rate.    All payments are subject to tax, national insurance deductions and pension contributions, where applicable.  


How is my pay calculated in my first month of employment?

If you start part-way through the month you will receive a pro-rated salary based on one twelfth of your salary divided by the working days in the month multiplied by the number of days you have worked.  For example, if your annual salary is £20,000 and you started working for the University on the 13th January, and you are full time working Monday to Friday, you will have worked 15 days out of the 23 available working days in the month.    Monthly pay is £20,000/12= £1,667 and you would get paid £1,667/23 working days in the month x 15 days worked= £1,087.


How is my pay calculated in my last month of employment?

Once we are advised that you are leaving, we will calculate your final pay including any outstanding payments (such as holiday pay) or deductions for outstanding payments due such as overtaken holidays, season ticket loans, overpayments etc.  Your final pay will be paid into your bank account in the usual way on the 28th of the month, or the Friday before if this falls on a weekend.   If you leave part-way through the month you will receive a pro-rated salary based on one twelfth of your salary divided by the working days in the month multiplied by the number of days you have worked.   For example, if your annual salary is £20,000 and you left employment on the 13th January, and you are full time Monday to Friday, you will have worked 9 days out of the 23 available working days in the month.   Monthly pay is £20,000/12= £1,667 and you would get paid £1,667/23 working days in the month x 9 days worked= £652.


How do I update my details?

Salaried staff can amend their employee details such as address and bank details on HR Connect self Service.   These need to be updated before the 15th of the month, in order for them to effective for that month’s pay.    If you are casual and have a change in details, please contact payroll@napier.ac.uk .
