  1. Hello. I've been with my employer just shy of 12 months, I started as an apprentice and qualified not long ago. when starting I was told I would be paid £6.50ph (NMW at that time) and would be collected and returned home by one of their vans. My position is a painter ( was apprentice, no formal change of title, other than the fact I have qualified ) I had no problems with the firm until october last year when they failed to increase my wage inline with the NMW increase to £6.70 an hour. They did eventually around christmas time 2015. I am techincally owed the missing wages , b
  2. I have been scouring the net looking for info on this issue but i literally cant find anything so hope someone can help! The NMW increase to 6.70 on 1st Oct is not being paid by my employer untill November, it seems wrong to me. So I asked for an explanation from them last year and the reason i got was ' we are midway through a payment cycle and it cant be changed' I wasnt happy but i did let it slide, however the same thing is happening this year and Im not letting it slide again. To clarify, the effective date is 1 Oct, i get paid 4 weekly, i am due to get paid tomorow (26th)
  3. Good Afternoon, I'm beginning a small claims court claim against my former employer, for money due to me in unpaid wages. Rough situation is that during the time I was employed, my hourly rate was NMW, however I was required to work for 9 hours each day and only paid for 8.5 hours. As the wages received did not amount to the NMW for the hours worked, I reported the matter to HMRC. They have provided me with a determination of money due, which amounts to approximately £350, however they are no pursuing enforcement action. As my employer was a franchised store, it is my int
  4. I recieved a letter back in October 2011 stating I had been successful in my job application and interview, this letter also stated my starting wage would be £5.80 and that following a successful probationary period of 440 hours my pay would increase to £6 per hour. As NMW is £6.08 I rang up the employer to question this hourly rate and was told it should have stated £6.08, the letter just hadnt been updated following the increase in the NMW (£5.80 was NMW in 2009) I have now worked 1100 hours passing my probationary period months ago (approx feb/march 2012) still with no wage incre
  5. I have been working at the same place for over 15 years now. We at paid an hourly rate + production bonus per week. Our current rate is £5.05 per hr + bonus (this can vary from £30 -£70 P/W) Looking at my payslip on friday I thought it didn't look right. Gross pay was £248.87 for 40 + 1.5 (overtime) This comes to £5.99 P/hr. I also looked at another slip. It was, £250.26 for 40 +1.25 This one works out at £6.06 I believe they would try to argue that it's because my appraisal score (done monthly...or so they tell us) and therefore my bonus has been cut. Am I right in thinking t
