steff Posted March 12, 2007 Share Posted March 12, 2007 i am a newly qualified youth worker. i am working at my first high school that i attended as a student, who my family has had a lot to do with the councellor there. my brother was very close friends with her second eldest daughter, my sisters boyfriend lived at her place for over a year, and i received councelling from her during year 7 and 8. she hired me at the end of last year. i was to start at the beginning of this school year, which i did.... she told me i wasnt going to be paid straight away, and was to have a probation period, which i was fine with. however its two weeks away from the end of term 1, and i have not been paid one cent. i work very hard with the kids at the school, i research areas that i am not sure on, so i can give my kids the right information, i give my all when councelling the kids i have. the kids all love me, run up and hug me and want to spend alot of time with me, which my boss sees. i am at school before my boss gets there, working out what i need to do for the day, so she is not carring me under her wing, i know what i am doing. i asked her two weeks ago about the pay, she said she spoke to the principle about paying me, and that it was fine, but would be half the legal rate for a while. so about $7.25 an hour. last friday i attempted to give her my hours but she said she would have to talk to the principle about paying me. i dont know what to do, please help me.
