If you work more days than your contract specifies is your employer obligated to pay you for those additional days?
I am a school nurse. My contract, I was told, was for 10 months, which I have worked for the past several years. In actuality my contract was for 9 months (listed in terms of days). I did not catch the mistake. The school board is refusing to pay me for the extra month I worked each year because I signed the contract. Over the years that I have worked there no one has ever pointed out that I was not a ten month employee, and have always insisted that I work to the last day of the ten month employees schedules. The mistake was caught this year by my new principal.
