Leaving an employer knowing they owe you money can be one of the most frustrating things to do. 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 legal advice. Contact one of our employment lawyers at 0161 930 5151, e-mail employmentteam@gorvins.com or fill in our online form and we will call you back to arrange a consultation.

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 is the non payment of wages and unpaid holiday pay.

In order to make an unpaid wages claim, 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 non payment of 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 so you need to make your unpaid wages claim before this time expires.

How Can Our Unpaid Wages Lawyers Help?

We know that you may have lots of questions, and we have the answers. How much does it cost? Do I have a valid case? How long will it take? What are my chances of success? During our initial consultation, we will discuss your specific situation and provide you with clear and transparent information about our fees, the strength of your case, the estimated timeline, and your chances of success. 

We’ll take the time to listen to your concerns and answer any questions you may have, so you can feel confident and empowered throughout the legal process.

If you are concerned that you have not received all of your wages and think time is running out to recover what you are owed, contact our employment solicitors today at 0161 930 5151, or e-mail employmentteam@gorvins.com. We can offer you guidance and representation in this stressful time.
