I'm a teacher and my salary is budgeted, meaning divided by 26 so I get paid over the summer. I am going on ML March 19th and taking FMLA for the remainder of the school year. Technically, once my FMLA ends, I am again employed with the school and will be paid over the summer as always. Summer paychecks are always 1/26 of your salary.
Payroll just sent me an e-mail saying that my summer pay will be lowered based on when I leave for ML. I asked how much. They would not give me any specifics. Not even a ballpark answer like "You get 85% of your pay if you work X number of weeks and 55% of your pay if you work Y number of weeks." Nothing. He just said, "Your summer pay will be adjusted".
Am I the only one who cannot go six weeks without a clue what my paycheck is going to be? Are they allowed to just "wait and see" without giving me any kind of mathematical formula or basis with which to budget?
ETA: I emailed him again asking, "For budgeting purposes, could you give me the formula you use, please? Or, could you calculate my pay based on my leaving exactly on March 19th and having a 6wk maternity leave plus exactly 6wks of FMLA? Thanks in advance for the help. I am trying to calculate income & expenses for our new family this summer!" ....we'll see what he says.
