This is a pretty pointless post, just need to get this off my chest!
As previously stated my partner has not been paid for 2 weeks. We officially have no money for food, petrol, nappies and bills, let alone xmas pressies. I go back to work next week after having 13 months on maternity leave but won't get paid until the weekend after!
H2B approached his boss on Tuesday and he guarenteed him that he would put it in his account that night. It wasn't in there yesterday at all and then today he checked and there wasn't even this weeks pay!!!
I don't know what to do... should i just wait and see what happens over the next few days? Let my partner deal with it? Or get involved myself?
What would you do??? Thanks and sorry for the ranting.

Thats just wrong.
you have kids to feed for gods sake.How rude.
Id make hubby be a bit more forceful and if it wasnt there tomorrow id be going to see boss.
Do u get FTB A??If so $1000 per child should be in with your pay so hopefully you get that.
Personally i think hubby should be looking for a new job.
I had this in a previous job and it was because they were going broke.

My DH had a boss like this, but not as bad as that. He decided that it was only fair to give a weeks grace to get paid late, but after that it is not cool at all, especially if the boss isn't up front about it and explains why it is late. I would get him to say to the boss that you need to get paid or I'm not coming to work.
And I agree with Michelle, its usually because they're going broke, so probably a good idea to look for another job.

I hope this gets sorted for ASAP especially with Christmas approaching rather quickly.

I'm in the same boat
Except my husband has done a few weeks of work for his own father more than 2 weeks ago and hasn't been paid, and we're apparently not to expect anything until at least the end of next week. He can not expect a christmas present in that case. I am SO ticked off it's not even funny. And cos my baby's still on the inside we don't get a christmas present from mr rudd either.
You have my sympathy.

Thank you all for your kind words and advice. I'll see how H2B takes care of it and let you know what happens in the end. Fortunately I do get the bonus money (think I get it on Tuesday) so that will put the pressure off.

My parnter works for himself and he is always having weeks and weeks go by with no money coming in. It drives me crazy!!!
It makes it very hard to manage your finances. Thankfully when he does get the money that is owed to him it is a large amount.
I would definately get your husband to say something and be more forcefull. It is just wrong!
I make sure that no matter what we are able to pay the people who work for us.

I'd be worried if they aren't paying - usually a good sign that they cant pay!
Is there a payroll officer or someone that h2b can talk to? I know from experience that some payroll people get pissed off when the partner calls up, so maybe let h2b deal with it first. Dont let them fob you off by saying that they cant do another pay run until next week either as there is always a way of getting money to someone!

Just a quick reply letting you know that ONE pay has gone in. Fingers crossed for the other one!!!!
