    But it's really on you isn't it? If I want to be paid for a job I ask for payment up front. I get that it's awkward and maybe it's just my age now but honestly it saves trouble later.

    I asked in my email how he wanted to do payment and whether he wanted to pay me as an employee or whether I issue an invoice as a contractor. he ignored this part of the email. I was hoping to clarify with him today in person but didn't get the opportunity as I was in another office and/or other people were around and it deity awkward.

    when I say he should've clarified, I mean I felt like it was his responsibility as the employer. he got me in to do work, surely he could've gone over the pay arrangements?

    but you're right. it has now fallen to me. I'll email on Monday and see what he says. I'm annoyed at how awkward it's gotten (if only in my own mind)!

    just in a normal salary cycle.

    the added complication is that not only am I on mat leave, my old boss has retired and sold the business to this new guy. so I came in today and technically worked on clients that the new guy now "owns" although I did the work in the old office.

    so maybe new boss thinks old boss will pay me? argh. why did I bother!!

    I agree he's made it really awkward and difficult. Ugh I hate how hard this is when it just shouldn't be. You work, you get paid. Do you know your hourly rate? Just email him an invoice. You have him the opportunity to have his preference met and he hasn't taken you up on it.

    I'll work the hourly rate out from my total package. if I'm invoicing as a contractor, the hourly rate should include tax and super so I'll just do that X the hours I worked.

    Just send in the invoice, you might be overthinking it. If he ignores that... Well then.

    I'm also thinking along these lines. Particularly if you are looking to do flexible hours or a change your hours when coming back from mat leave. I would have just done the work for free as a bit of a good will thing to impress the new boss. It also sounds like you contacted him and offered to come in rather than the other way around? Maybe I mis-understood that part.
