I got a job at a university in the UK. When I got the offer, the working hours were 38h per week. When they sent the contract to sign, it says, minimum of 38h and the university will from time to time ask to work extra hours without further remuneration. Is this normal in the UK? Should I discuss this with my supervisor to remove this clause?
In the salary it said 36000/ year prorata; what is prorata? As I understand it is based on hours, so should the salary increase if I worked extra hours? Is this correct?
