electrineer16348242dAsk your boss. Also read your contract and any collective agreements it claims to follow if any.
electrineer16348242dHow do you know how much you are paid or if you even work there if there's no contract
CoffeeSnake139242d@electrineer We have an internal centralized web hub with pages for our HR, benefits, company profile, etc. Apparently having an employee handbook is a normal thing but out of all my jobs and internships I think I've only ever gotten one of those like once.
But yeah, I go to the internal page and go to the HR link and it shows me my pay stubs, pay rate, contact info, etc. I don't know if it has any FAQs about general salary though, my company is very large and much broader than my role so the requirements may be dependent on sub-organization
SomeNone859242dAll the jobs I had so far required me to sign a contract before I started. Going by that experience, you should have one, and I encourage you to read it.
If by chance you didn't sign anything before starting, ask your manager or HR for a copy of your terms of employment.
Also, getting paid a salary, and keeping time on whatever you use your work hours for are potentially two different things. While being a salaried empoyee usually means the company can ask you to work longer hours without providing additional compensation, there are limits to that, depending on jurisdiction, and if it gets out of hand (say, more than 15 minutes each day in order to finish up whatever you were doing at the end of the day), it behooves you to refuse, and either point to the need for a healthy work/life balance, or renegotiate your salary, if you are the type to trade time off for more pay.
