Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today.Before proceeding please note that as I am a practising solicitor, I am often in and out of meetings, travelling between clients or even at court when I pick your question up. This may even occur at weekends. Therefore, I apologise in advance but there may be a delay in getting back to you and providing my advice. Please be patient and I will respond as soon as I can. You do not have to wait here and you will receive an email when I have responded. For now please let me know how long you have worked there.
So you do not yet know that after 12 weeks your pay will not actually be increased as there are still 5 weeks to go?
Just need to go off for a short period will respond as soon as I return, thanks
Hello again, the only thing you can do is argue that a failure to award you the pay increase amounts to unlawful deduction of wages. To have any chance of succeeding you must be able to show that this pay increase was guaranteed and that it did not take place once it was due. Therefore, you cannot do anything about this now as the rise is not due to happen for another 5 weeks. Once that period has elapsed and you are not getting paid what you were contractually due, you may consider making the above claim in the employment tribunal and seeking a formal resolution that way
