The online survey of 4,000 employees also revealed that 79% of employees that had been paid incorrectly identified the issue themselves and, on average, 44% respondents would consider leaving their jobs.

 

The research, by SD Worx, surveyed employees in six different European countries: the UK, France, Austria, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Germany. Employees in the Netherlands were most likely to be paid late (55%), followed by Germany (46%).

 

The reasons for delayed payment varied for each country, with the main two reasons being late third-party payments impacting cash-flow and system error or outage.

 

On average, late payments were delayed between one-and-a-half and two weeks in all countries, except in Austria where the average delay was around three weeks.
