    • Thanks DX.  I've ploughed through the pages and dug out what I feel are the relevant ones. Obviously, some of these are duplicates of what I've put up before.  Anyway, I would be hugely grateful if someone can look over and advise. Reading though other posts and on other cases that I've had help with from here, I don't think they have much of a case - given the weakness of much of their "evidence" - but obviously I would be grateful for some expert advice from the helpful souls on here.    Thank you.    B   Witness Oct19_redacted.pdf
    • You came here for advice, soem advice has been given adn you question the validity and source of that advice. We are all lay peopele, ie not giving professional advice but it is based on experience of the world and in some cases working in the field that advice is given on. Now you dont have to take our advice, we wont get the huff if you prefer to look elsewhere or do something else. when I asked what you think they would do with your NI number it is to prod you to think for yourself and question why they would ask for this when there is nothing legal they can do with the information so wouild you be wnating to give it to them knowing that they would want it to break the law if they processed it. Now you can take that up with the company at the top but TBH unless you want to spend money on a lawyer they will not answer the question or fob you off with some ridiculous answer anyway.   so for the moment read a lot about  RLP and similar situations to yours ans make particular note of what happened to the peopel in the end. You will find no threads theat ended by saying " thanks to you I gor sued by RLP and owe them a fortune". It isnt going to happen and the reasons why are explained in many threads. They rely on your feeling of guilt to get anywhere
    • you need to respond to their letter saying that you belive that you ahve been paid correctly ( or underpaid if you are due a small amount of accrued holiday pay etc) and demand that they show a full account of what you received, when and why and how they arrived at this figure. You then reconcile that with your P45 and use the figures to bat off any furhter demands if they still akke one. Come back if they dotn drop the matter and give us the full breakdown on hours worked, hourly rate, gross pay, tax paid  etc
    • @dx100ukI never got a response to my SAR from Octopus.   But I have just received a 'letter before court action' from one of their legal representatives, who have been "instructed to consider legal action against [me] if full payment, a settlement or your proposals to make suitable repayments arrangements are not received in the next 30 days."   I'm reading the threads now. Any advice on how to proceed? 
    • I would say let them do their worst, it will surely backfire on them. Now with restrictive contracts that stop you working fro competitors- these are notoriously vague so often not worth the paper they are written on. also they have to be fair so for example if there are only 2 companies in the UK that make a certain product your employer cant say you arent allowed to work for the other one. If you were for example trained as a hairdersser and you were going to open a salon in the next street to your ex employer then the restriction would apply if worded correctly. Dont panic about this, your new employer will be au fait with the situation and time spent worrying about a nastly letter will in their eyes take you eye off the ball so concentrate on the new job.

My wife handed in her notice and was expecting her last wages on Friday but they have only paid her holiday pay. She was also due 3 weeks ssp which was not paid

 

When she phoned her ex employer they said they would try to pay her by the 15th of this month. 2 and a half weeks later. 

 

Surely this can't be right and is not reasonable to wait this long. There is a likeyhood that she will incur bank charges over this

 

Any advice ?

Tell them that you need the money now and if they don't pay immediately they will be liable for any bank charges.

Then if you have to use your overdraft and pay something to the bank, bill them.

Do all of this in writing and stay off the phone.

Be wary of anyone telling you that employers can withhold payment.

If what you said is all correct, they cannot for whatever reason.

Give them 14 days in a formal letter to cough up, no email a letter with free proof of postage from the Post Office.

What was the payment frequency Monthly, weekly or some other period?

It's just letting them know you haven't forgotten, give, them 7 days if you have been kept on a string, they might start spouting payroll frequency, and other avoiding tactics.

Immediate payment,  non negotiable. 

Failing that they will have to pay for all bank charges.

Let them know in unmistakable words. 

Any bs they tell you about cycling, accounts etc, it's just bs.

Take no crap and stand up for your right to be paid on time.

Little story for you: there was a delayed payment and they said they would pay me next payslip.

Next day i didn't go to work.

They called me and asked what happened. 

I said: "I'll come to work next month. As you can delay payment of my wages, surely I can delay work, correct?"

I was paid same day and nobody ever mentioned that day off I took.

However,  I don't suggest to do the same to anyone,  unless you're a loose cannon.

then politey ask if it will be paid in the next salary run and act according to their response.

A common problem is that the accounts peopel dont know that anything different has happened so just punch the same buttons each month
