Leaving an employer knowing they owe you money can be one of the hardest things to do in the current financial circumstances. In some instances, it can be a substantial amount of money you’re owed and therefore worth pursuing through the courts.

If you are owed money by your employer e.g. overtime, unpaid wages, notice pay, holiday pay or redundancy package but you haven’t received it you could benefit from employment advice. Contact one of our employment law solicitors on 0345 507 5151, e-mail employmentteam@gorvins.com or fill in our online form and we will call you back.

Gorvins Approach to Claiming Unpaid Wages

There are various kinds of money your employer may owe you. These include:

  • Unpaid wages
  • Notice pay
  • Redundancy pay
  • Holiday pay
  • Sick pay

These types of pay among others can all be recovered from your employer if they have failed to pay you what you are owed. The most common are unpaid wages and unpaid holiday pay.

If you’re owed wages there are certain things that you’ll have to prove.

Having the correct paperwork ready to take to your employment solicitor is the best way to jump start your case and get you one step closer to claiming back your wages. Wage slips, time sheets and bank statements proving you didn’t receive the money will help your case immensely. If you don’t already have your pay slips, you can request them from your employer. It is your legal right to a payslip and if they don’t comply, they are breaking the law.

Making a request in writing may not be possible where the three-month minus one day time limit for recovering the money through an Employment Tribunal is due to expire. The deadline for recovering wages is three months minus one day from when the money was owed. This is usually the last day that the money could have been paid to the worker legally.
