No wages for first month of work

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

 

Could someone give me some advice please?

 

 

I started working for a company in May 2018. I started as a temp from an agency with a weekly payment. This was supposed to be for 3 months, then if we performed well, they would interview us, and potentially keep us on. I was told I was given an interview in August, and they decided to offer me a permanent position, advising I would go permanent from September. I was then told as it was so close to the payroll deadline, they would ask the agency to keep me on as temp for the month of September, and would actually make me permanent from October instead.

 

 

About midway through October, they asked me to fill in a couple of forms and email them back within 2 days, stating otherwise I'd cut payroll cut-off and would not get paid. I filled these in and sent them back on the second day. I got an email back saying I had missed payroll as I should have sent it before 5pm. There was no such detail in the email I received. I had also asked my manager to send the form back for me as it had to be signed, and my manager had sent it after 5pm.

 

 

They then said they would look into organizing an emergency payment for me. Then I got told they had not sent me a bank detail form by their mistake. I filled it in and sent it back straight away. I was never sent the bank detail form so it was clearly their fault. I had presumed they would get the details for my bank details from my agency who had been paying me previously, so it didn't raise a concern for me.

 

 

Now the company is saying they will go to the CEO and see if he can authorize the emergency payment. The company seems to be putting the blame on me, even though I have done nothing wrong and it is completely the company's fault.

 

 

If the company comes back and refuses to pay me for October until the following month, what are my options?

 

 

Any advice will be much appreciated.

 

 

Aaron

What's the name of the company?


Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

HOW DO I START A NEW THREAD?

How will knowing that help you give better advice, and not just be stirring?

 

Options:

Ask for a letter to your bank explaining, and ask them to cover overdraft fees

Payday loan

Quit and get new job

Letter before action - but court is likely to take longer to resolve than noising up the CEO

Write to CEO yourself directly asking for help

Ask your union for help


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

BB, the employment forum encourages people not to name their employers, it has the potential to make things more difficult. I know this isn't what we do on most of the other forums.

This is not a conspiracy but just a cock up, I'm sure you will be paid but probably not in the next fortnight. Now to be honest some of this is down to the change start date etc and you could have made noises about the paperwork back in august as you knew it was going to happen. Not saying the errors wouldnt have occurred but they would have happened sooner and would have been easier to resolve.

Ask for an advance or loan against the owed salary, probably easier to do it that way rather than battle with the HMRC system to sort things out, they can then pay you a fixed amount and deduct that from salary when they sort that out.

I don't think this is an issue Payroll made a mistake and puts the blame on you That's life and it happens all the time

 

 

I don't think it will happen again but you should keep chasing Payroll to keep them on their feet

 

 

You have been with this company for 4 months now (a guess) so I believe you like the job Even if it happens again, I don't think you should take legal action The Judge would see that it is an incompetent dept and nothing was lost

 

 

Just keep chasing payroll

    • Just something simple like this?      Dear ECP,    With reference to charge number: xxx xxx,  I would like to update you with the address of the registered keeper of the following vehicle:    Reg: xxx xxx Address: xxx xxx   Yours sincerely,    NameOfRegisteredKeeper
    • Thanks dx100uk   cal days?   Okay so as I understand your answer. I need phone court meditation and says yes to meditation if not too late now.   Then when phone meditation takes place I will have to tell them > I do not have all info. I answer that I don't have what is required to go ahead with meditation.   But that questionnaire requires me to answer yes or no? saying yes that i have it now is wrong? 2. I can confirm that I have enough information about the claim to allow me to enter into negotiations and that I do not require any further evidence from the other party before I can mediate   I will try to search and look for other things sorry I am just very confused with legal matters and don't want to risk doing anything wrong.    So I should not try to negotiate with Lowell? looking at 50 or 60% discount that was offered years ago?
    • No scanner to hand, so thought I'd get a bit of typing practice instead.     Header Info:      Body:     
    • yep simply send ECP a letter informing them of the current registered keepers address
    • The last thing you want is a default CCJ and they are sneaky enough to get one by sending all paperwork to your the  address, you could inform them of the Keepers new address, but do not admit to being the driver,  could you post up the demand as a pdf please.  |'m sure the crew will be along soon with better advice.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.
