Is this why I did not get paid for a day?

    I just received my first paycheck for the year, yet I am shorted one day.
    The number of days I worked was obvious on my pay sheet, so an oversight would seem unlikely.

    I am wondering if I am a victim of office manager negligence.

    An office manager told me on a Friday to simply come back on Monday and there would be a job. She never put this job in Aesop, but somehow a job number was generated.

    Is this why payroll did not pay me for this job?

    I thought Aesop and payroll were completely separate entities.

    Anything is possible. Call the office mgr to clarify the error.

    I e-mailed both payroll and Aesop.

    Hope to find out tomorrow.

    When I substituted, there were often errors on my paycheck, usually due to the school secretary messing up paperwork. I was always able to rectify it and receive the money on the next check.

    I'm sure it was an oversight. Office managers are busy and sometimes things slip through the cracks.

    As an aside, you seem to have more problems with getting paid than anyone else I've ever known in any field.

    I always get paid, but occasionally, I will not be paid the correct amount.

    There are many differing pay rates at my main district so I suspect errors are not unusual.

    Many subs are probably not even aware of all the differing rates since the district does not make them common knowledge.


    This is the first time I have missed a full day, however.

    Today my suspicions were confirmed.

    This was not a payroll oversight.

    Even though the job was on my pay sheet, I got a call back from payroll today that the job for August 17 had to be confirmed before I get paid.

    Last year, this district had an awful time filling sub jobs; many jobs never got filled.

    The school I worked at on August 17 is not one of the better schools, and I therefore suspect was shorthanded a lot last year.

    I am guessing that the office manager asked me to work informally rather than enter the job on Aesop so as not to take a chance that no one would pick up the job.

    I have no idea where the job number came from though, which I thought was generated by Aesop.

    Where ever this job number came from, it was not valid enough to confirm this job existed.

    Like I said above, it's often a school-based issue. So call the school and tell them to give you a valid job number or have them contact payroll on your behalf.

    Not everything is a big conspiracy. Office managers in schools get swamped just like everyone else. She probably forgot to enter it into the system. It doesn't have to be a big deal. Just call and let her know that a mistake was made and needs to be corrected.

    In my district's sub system, you can enter all the jobs you want (and get all the job numbers), but the sub system doesn't connect to payroll. They are two separate systems.

    The school did provide a job number the day after the job, but this did not confirm the job apparently.

    How does one get a job number if it is not in the system?

    I also thought that Aesop and payroll were two separate systems.

    This is why I really didn't care that the job was never entered into Aesop.
    It is too much of a coincidence for the two to be unrelated, however.

    Certainly not a conspiracy since only one person is responsible.

    The job number comes from the sub system, not the payroll system.

    This is why I still stand by the above post.

    Two other office managers are nearly sure you need to put the job into Aesop to generate a job number.

    Yet the manager in question, not only told me to just come by and not take another job, but she also repeated the job # from August 14 and put it in the August 17 space.

    I doubt she would have done this if it was an oversight.
    If she had forgotten, she likely would have left this space blank.

    I had her correct it the next day, but she was gone. So another secretary whited it out and entered a mystery job number.

    Regardless, since this job was on my time sheet and signed by the office manager, I am not sure why it still must be " confirmed" before I am paid.

    Payroll says they are still working on getting it confirmed.
