    After being reinstated on the payroll, I discovered that I was paid only in term 4 last year. I haven’t recieved the rest of my pay yet from terms1,2 and 3 from 2022 despite signing in all the resumption duty forms. I have forwarded my querry with the papers attached but there hasn”t been any payments. What should I do?
