Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. When were you supposed to be paid?
End of Oct
I was supposed to be paid my full pay yesterday
You are entitled to be paid your basic pay during any periods of suspension, unless your contract says otherwise. Assuming you are due to be paid, then the employer's failure to do so can amount to unlawful deduction of wages.
In order to try and resolve this, the employer should be contacted in writing, advised that this is being treated as unlawful deduction of wages and ask them to pay back the money within 7 days. Advise them that if they fail to pay the money that is owed, legal proceedings could follow.
Whether you actually proceed to take this to the employment tribunal for resolution is up to you decide, bearing in mind that there will still be a delay before your claim is heard and you have to pay tribunal fees. Hopefully simply mentioning this is something you are considering and giving them an ultimatum should resolve this.
No one seems to be interested to get this solved, are they any legal advisors whom l can contact and possibly write on my behalf
You will have to pay for anyone to get involved in this and write to the employer, although Citizens advice could try and send something for you, they are free
I see you are trying to exit chat - has your original query been answered or do you need me to clarify anything before I close this at my end?
Thank you for your answer, will write them a letter tomorrow.
You are most welcome. Best of luck with this
I will close chat now, thanks
