yes so the gym manager offered me the role for £10 an hour and I accepted. He was the manager of the gym and I was his employee. The was no negotiating with this verbal contract. I have recently contracted the area manager as the gym manager wasn't able to help me. She came in today and started stated that in her planning for my position, her evidence states that I was meant to get paid £8.50 per hour. This is evidence I have never seen, hear off nor agreed to.
I guess there is a possibility that my manager did not have the right to negotiate the price. I work at a smaller budget gym that he manages, whereas the area manager, manages a much larger leisure centre and also overseas the gym manager at the gym I work at. When I saw her today she repeatedly stated that she didn't sign off on the pay I was offered. However every time I spoke to my direct manager he claims that was what payroll said I was to be paid. I think very clearly there was a miscommunication within the business organization as to how much I was to be paid. However I still believe I have a legal contract with the company for accepting the rate that was offered, when I accepted the job. Therefore I should get paid what was agreed.
Hi Ben thank you very much for your advice. My recent employer started making illegal deductions from my wages 2 months ago. by he time I get my next payslip it will be three months since my employer started making illegal deductions. Will this cause me any problems taking this to a tribunal or is this OK as my employers only recently indicated that im not going to be paid what we agreed at the beginning.
