Hi.

 

I have been delivering for Knowhow for a Franchisee.

 

I no longer work for Knowhow but the Franchisee is refusing to pay my outstanding wages and is sending abusive texts.

 

I contacted HR but they refuse to deal with it.

 

To whom do I complain?

 

Thanks for any help

I am confused by who the contract was between. Who said they would pay you and what do you have in writing? Are you employed or self employed?


Never assume anyone on the internet is who they say they are. Only rely on advice from insured professionals you have paid for!

Dear Sir / Madam

 

I have recently finished employment at the Knowhow Leeds CSC (Howley Park Road - Morley, Leeds)

 

I was employed by a Franchisee

 

Mr xxxx

 

Not only am I being refused 4 days pay which I am owed - I am in receipt (and have kept) text messages from Mr xxx calling me a f***ing moron (I have inserted the asterisks).

 

I am absolutely furious to have been treated this way. I appreciate I have a right to claim these wages via Section 13(1) of 1996 Employment Rights Act, however, I find it dreadful to have been treated this way and want to bring it to your attention.

 

I look forward to your reply.

 

Yours faithfully

 

Disgruntled Employee

OK. Et1 if employed, small claims if self employed. Write one letter before action then do it.

Hi,

 

We have checked our records and neither xxx or yyy are employees of Dixons Retail. Unfortunately we are therefore unable to take this matter any further for you, but suggest you speak to your employers to resolve the issue.

 

 

Apologies that we cannot help further.

 

Regards

Hi

 

This is from this ACAS Link: http://www.acas.org.uk/index.aspx?articleid=1488

 

Are employees protected from unauthorised deductions from their wages?

 

Yes. The law protects individuals from having unauthorised deductions made from their wages, including complete non-payment. This protection applies both to employees and to some self-employed workers.

 

There are extra protections for individuals in retail work that make it illegal for an employer to deduct more than 10 per cent from the gross amount of any payment of wages (except the final payment on termination of employment) if the deduction is made because of cash shortages or stock deficiencies.

 

Workers who believe they have suffered an unlawful deduction from wages should take it up with their manager and/or HR/payroll department. If this doesn't resolve the matter, recourse may be made to formal internal procedures. Only if all else fails should a complaint to an employment tribunal be considered.
