Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hi Ben,thank you for getting back to me,no,not yet,as I am working only a week there,and usually they pay after two weeks.
as I have talked with one guy today,and he mentioned that,the people keep changing,its a bit odd
but then after two or 3 weeks,I dont want to be told,I am not gonna get paid,for some reasons,is there any form,I can ask them to sign,as I am a subcontractor
There is no legal form as such – all you need is to be able to show that you had agreed to do the work and that they had agreed to pay you foe it. This could be your employment contract, backed up by timesheets or any other document which confirms what you worked. It could be your invoices you send to the company with a request for payment for the time worked. It could be anything else you had agreed between you. It does not even have to be anything at all although that could make it more difficult to pursue in the event of a dispute. If they cannot agree on anything you can just keep a diary yourself of what work you have done and what you are owed. You can always send it to the company anyway just to show you had kept them in the loop. In any even if you are not paid for work done you are entitled to take the matter further if necessary.
Whenever a dispute arises over money owed by one party to another, the debtor can be pursued through the civil courts for recovery of the debt. As legal action should always be seen as a last resort, there are certain actions that should be taken initially to try and resolve this matter informally and without having to involve the courts. It is recommended that the process follows these steps:
Whatever correspondence is sent, it is always advisable to keep copies and use recorded delivery so that there is proof of delivery and a paper trail. The court may need to refer to these if it gets that far.
