Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
At the moment 1 month's salary £3500 (this is after deductions).
I have good will toward my employer and would like to continue working with them through these difficulties however I am very concerned that they will not be able to attract the necessary funding nor wind the company up in a timely manner.
The company's wages liabilitywill be met by HMRC if the company is unable to pay the wages.
Does that answer the question?
I had ticked the medium detail option so was looking for a little more info.
I am already aware through an internet search that HMRC will pay up £450 per week aginst unpaid wages. This would not cover my salary as above.
Specifically as my original query:
1. Is this breach of contract ?
2. What is my legal status as an employee of the company if I continue to work unpaid.
To be frank, ananswer is an answer and you get the same detail, regardless of which option youtick, but we are happy to continue and elaborate anything which we have notcovered or is not clear.
If it is notbreach of a written contract because you do not have a written contract, thenit is breach of either a verbal contract or an implied contract.
I'm not altogethercertain what you mean by your legal status if you continue to work unpaid. Youbecome an unsecured creditor if that is what you mean.
Can I help further?
