Partial Monthly Salary - Full Quellensteuer %?

I haven't been able to find the answer to this one through searching:

When myself and a few colleagues re-located to CH earlier this year we all began our Swiss contracts on the 20th of the month and were therefore paid approx 1/3 of a month’s salary. But each of our withholding tax rates was applied at the same % as if it were a full month’s salary.

It was questioned it at the time, but we did not push the subject much as they just said 'that's how it works'. We are now getting re-location costs allocated and hit with the tax increases so the subject has come up again on why it wasn't decreased.

We will be taking it up with HR, but any background info on if this is the norm, and/or who is making the decision i.e. the company or the relevant tax office. As I believe from other posts that the company is responsible for calculating the quellensteuer rate?

I had the same issue. I asked to HR.
They said they have to do it this way, otherwise they get a fine.
