Would be grateful for any advice.

 

I worked for a driving school whilst going from being a PDI to a fully qualified ADI. I started 1 May 2016 and the franchise fee was £210 per week which I paid regularly. The pupils pay the company and supposedly this should be passed to me. I have received approx. £3,000 but I work out I am owed another £8,000, the company have not paid me since 24 October 2016,

 

I have been in regular contact with them and they keep asking for spreadsheets, etc, of how many pupils I have taught, in March this year they agreed to pay me £100 per day to clear the backlog which lasted 3 days. I stopped paying the franchise fee in March 2017 as I really could not afford it any longer. I now work for another company but when I spoke to the original company they said they owe me £500 but this was 'outset' by £5,000!

 

I don't understand this and they are not providing any evidence. I have worked full time for £3,000 (less petrol and other overheads).

 

Please can anyone tell me how to get help with this. Thank you.

This has all the hallmarks of a company in trouble.

 

I would suggest that you calculate immediately how much you are owed and issue a County Court claim as soon as possible.

 

What is the total value of the money that you believe you are owed?

 

Does this company have some kind of controlling body or professional association?

I believe I am owed around £8K. I will find out if there are any controlling bodies, etc. Thanks for reply.

around £8k is not good enough, you need to calculate to the nearest pound how much they owe and then consider what they may try and claim form you, such as franchise fees if you failed to give enough notice to break from the agreement. B2B contracts can be awfully punishing when you want out so you will need to look very acrefully at the agreement to see what they have done wrng contractually rather than relying on just being owed shed loads of money as that may well be a separate matter in the eyes of the law.

Agree with the cashflow indicating possible trouble so get this done asap and worry about reporting to governing bodies such as DoT later
