Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you today. Even though you do not have a written contract you are contractually entitled to receive double time on bank holidays through custom and practice and your employer cannot change this without giving you formal notice.
You should therefore have received double time and it amounts to an unlawful deduction from wages that you were not.
You should write to explain this to your employer and say if you are not paid you will have no alternative but to bring a claim in the Employment Tribunal for the unlawful deduction.
Hopefully they will then pay you. If they do not you can raise a claim at www.employmenttribunals.gov.uk
You cannot be disciplined or dismissed for raising the complaint.
If you have any further questions please do ask. If I have answered your question I would be grateful if you would take the time to rate my answer. Thank you and all the best.
If there is anything else you would like to know about this please let me know.
thank you so much for your help i can now take the right action to sort this out for myself and the rest of the workers
