Showing results for tags 'holiday pay problems'.
I would really like some help and advice please! In the end of December I handed my notice in to my job at a franchised branch of McDonald's so that I would not return after 9 months of maternity leave, following all procedures set in the employee handbook for the company and in the belief that I'd get 9 months worth of accrued holiday pay to the sum of £420 and a P45 too. I received a final payslip with the very last of my maternity pay, but no holiday pay and no P45 as yet. I have emailed my ex employer (I always email so that I always have a copy of all correspondence) to ask for the accrued holiday pay that I had not received, outlining the fact that all procedures had been followed. This was on Wednesday last week, and I received a reply telling me that my email had been forwarded to payroll the next day. 3 working days later, I have had no further correspondence and am none the wiser as to what's going on. How long do I have to leave it before taking the next step, and what is the next step?
Hi guys, I am just looking for a bit of advice regarding holiday entitlement. I currently work 24 hours over 4 days. I have been with the business for 7 years, but the last 6 months has been with a new lease holder. I have asked to sort out my holiday entitlement as it was a major problem under the previous owners and I only managed to get it sorted ONE week before the new owner took charge -when the lease was signed I was paid my outstanding holiday pay. It took me nearly 2 years to get them to recognize my entitlement. Now I am facing the same situation. He is ADAMANT that I am wrong in asking for 5.6 weeks paid holiday per year and that (at the very most) i can take FIVE days paid holiday AFTER he has been in charge for ONE YEAR. The five days he is giving me as a good will gesture and not through legal entitlement. When I first brought up the issue he went crazy, started shouting and calling me disrespectful. I know from a friend that following my enquiry he was looking to replace me!! Surely there has to be some legal precedent that could stop me being fired for this? The situation is very difficult as the gentleman in charge is an Indian migrant who has never worked alongside a British employee - all previous employees have been of Indian descent and they were happy working 60+ hours per week for less than minimum wage. I am not I want to get this settled as it has been 4+ years since I have taken any (considerable) time off and I hope that I can make use of my LEGAL entitlement to paid leave. From what i can gather I am entitled to 22.4 days paid leave? is this right? From a legal perspective what can I do to enforce my rights as an employee? Given the current economic climate I cant afford to lose this job , but I am fed up being treated like an idiot. any help and or advice would be much appreciated. Thanks
