I work as an IT Consultant, the programme I work on decided to employ Ernst Young consultants and release a lot of us early from our contract and gave 2 weeks notice.

 

On 24th May I was told my contract was finishing early, but he said I could bill to the end of may and bill 2 weeks of June to cover the notice period.

 

I submitted 2 time sheets one for the month of May and the other for the 2 weeks in June, these were duly approved and returned to me copying in the Finance Manager who was present during the meeting, raised invoices to cover the time-sheets and submitted to my agency.

 

I have now been told by the agency that the company is refusing to pay my May time-sheet as I had finished on the 24th May, I spoke to the person who authorized the time-sheet who was one of the people in the meeting and he confirmed his interpretation was the same as mine. I explained to the agency that I will not amend the invoice as it is in line with the discussion I had and reflects an approved time-sheet.

 

Yesterday I received an email from the agency with a copy of my time sheet this time altered and they said they would now only accept an invoice based on the altered time-sheet.

 

I intend to stick to my guns but would appreciate any views from you chaps in respect of where I stand. My opinion is that if I accept a retrospective amended time sheet that I have not agreed to that replaces a previous time-sheet that was properly authorized there is nothing to stop them doing that to any time sheet have submitted.

 

Grateful for any views.

The timesheet records are an accurate record of dates/times worked and signed off by an authorised employee of the company you worked for. They should not be altered later, as when they were signed, the information was checked for accuracy.

 

I have signed off a large number of timesheets over the years and have never heard of them being altered or an agency involving themselves in doing so. I just wonder what the purpose is for altering them ?

 

Suggest you get the company person who signed the timesheets to contact the agency to resolve. Should be easily resolved and is probably just right hand not knowing what the left hand is doing.


We could do with some help from you.

When I was told I was being let go it was on 24th May, but I was told I could bill for the month of May even though I was finishing 24th, the finance manager was present at the time, the reason why they are changing it? I think to maybe save money

You have copies of signed timesheets confirming that you will be paid those weeks. So they need to pay them or it is an easy win in court. I doubt they will want a CCJ.
