Rip off wages.
« on: Mar 12, 2005, 09:50 »
Just changed jobs due to my past employer being a compulsive liar about pay rises and such! And now they are hinting that my month in hand might be withheld. Any ideas where I stand legally! keep in mind that it is ?hours? which I worked that is due.

The problem is nowadays is that there are too many loopholes for employers to get use. I think the only reasonable way to find out would be the CAB.

You would be issued with a contract when you took your job. What does it say? If you weren't issued with a contract the company was comitting an offence.

That's right you have to have a contract of employment - you say they only owe you hours - have you included any holiday pay that was due to you -employers have a habit of not adding that on either.


Are you breaking your terms of employment?  Are you leaving without working a required amount of time after serving notice? If you are that may be why they may withold your wages.

A full months wage!
And the fact they lied to get me to move to another dept is breaking a contract.

Ok then go to ACAS - bet you employer pays up when he finds you are going to them.


I think that is the best bet! thanks.

Are you in a union? What type of work did you do? How large was the company?

No problem - I went there with a friend who had unfair dismissal after 27 years service - new line manager wanted to phase out  full time old timers and replace them with the new part-time policy for everyone- didnt like it cos this guy knew the ropes so  dismissed him on the spot for being late ONCE in 12 years.
Took him to ACAS - I went with him - he won damages against Government concern.
On top of that they had to pay him all the money he would have earned as wages plus a proportion of bonus he might have achieved- they ended up paying out thousands and you know what?  the manager got the sack 4 weeks later and is now installing burglar alarms!!! Rough Justice - I love it!


All I am after is what is owed! due to me loving my new job with a lot better rate of salary.

I use this website regularly, they have some great people surfing through the boards. The list of non company boards is what you ned to look for.

I suggest you register and then ask your question on the "Does anbody know" board or the "legal" board

http://www.fool.co.uk/index.htm?ref=topnav

Any problems finding the board I'm suggesting, gizza shout.

Good luck!
