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.

What's the name of the company?

 

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!

What's the name of the company?

 

 

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.

 

 

HB

Illegitimi non carborundum

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
