Final Letter Before Action
Following our correspondence to date, I am disappointed that the outstanding pay due to me following the termination of my employment with Power Stabilisation Ltd has not been paid.
As you are aware, I am due a total of £4,295 which includes the following:
• £1,500 net as part of my April 2015 salary
• £2,500 net as my full May 2015 salary
• £625 net as my week’s notice period pay
• £300 net for final expenses
Whilst I was aware that the company had cash flow problems at the time, it is entirely unreasonable to still be waiting for payment a year on. I have tried to communicate with you in relation to this but apart from promises I have not seen any action to pay me what I am legally due.
At this stage I have no other option but to issue you with final notice before action and inform you that unless full payment of all outstanding amounts is made by Friday 17 June 2016, I will be forced to issue formal legal proceedings in the County Court. I also reserve the right to charge compound interest since the date the money became due for payment, at the statutory rate of 8% plus the Bank of England interest rate in force at the time, plus claim all court costs associated with me pursuing the claim.
Whilst I would of course wish to avoid formal legal action, I will not hesitate to go down that route to pursue what I am legally entitled to. It is therefore in the interest of both parties if this matter is resolved amicably and without the need for court involvement. I therefore trust that you will take the necessary steps to bring this to a satisfactory conclusion.
I look forward to hearing from you.
