Hello, my name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. When is your next normal pay date?
my next pay date is 20/09/14.
Thank you. I am afraid the employer is not doing anything wrong by withholding your pay until the 20 October. By contract this would be your next pay date and once your employment has been terminated the employer is not obliged to pay you your normal pay and any associated payments before the contracted pay date which in your case would be the 20 October because that is the next pay run after your employment terminates. Some employers may decide to pay you earlier than that, but there is certainly no legal obligation on them to do so and what you will both be bound by the the contract which is in place and that states that you will be paid on a certain date every month and as that is the next date after your employment terminates, that is when the employer has to pay you what you are due. It may appear unfair to you, but it is certainly not unlawful and it does follow the contract which you have in place and which you will be bound by.
Hope this clarifies your position? If you could please let me know that would be great, thank you
many thanks for your help.
you are most welcome, all the best
