As I understand it, you're seeking to say that the employer has done something fraudulently, which is, of course, a criminal offence. So in terms of identying other options for you - the police is a good start, as this would be an offence under the Fraud Act.
Or you could find a solicitor willing to do this on a conditional fee or contingency fee agreement. These would mean you dont have to pay anything up-front, although if you won at a civil court hearing, then you would pay a contribution based on hourly rates (for conditional fee) or on the damages you recover (for contingency). I expect a conditional fee agreement is more likely for you.
However the police have to be the best initial option for you as they don't cost anything and this is potentially a criminal offence.
