Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Dear Sir/ Madam, My name is***** citizen, currently living In UK and working as a nurse. In the 27th of April this year I started working at Forest Manor Care Home, Sutton In Ashfield, a care home owned by Asha Healthcare. As I agreed before with the owner and the home manager, they should paid me a permanent contract of 33 hours/ week, with a pay of 12£/ hour. When I start working they named me on rota as being "bank". I asked the receptionist firstly, as she was there at the first hour, what means that. She said that means I will not get the contract 3 months as I am in probationary period. I sent then messages on phone to the owner to ask for my contract. The mobile number it has been the only contact detail I have it. After 6 days still no answer from owner. Meanwhile I asked several times the receptionist about my contract. She said the contract should arrive from main office. As I was afraid to work even one day with no signed contract, I sent again message to the owner and explained him in that case as they did not offer me any contract, I will not come anymore. I sent an email to the manager as well. And I asked for some explications, about the delay. However, I worked there 36 hours, during the week, as following: 27 April 2015 from 8am- up 8pm 28 April 2015 training in the home, about 1 hour. 29 April 2015 from 8am-up 8pm 30 April 2015 from 8pm-up 8am And they did not pay me for these hours. As I sent them messages I wanted to find out if there are some issues. We could talk about these if were. Meanwhile I lost other 2 weeks with any payment up I found other job, being able to start. I am a foreigner citizen and I do not know how is working the law here. Kindly please advise me how should I proceed to get paid for my working time. Many thanks. Regards, ***** *****
And however, they should pay me. I could say I was polite enough and ask for my money. I did not want to let the job. I was expected for some explications. I am a very understanding person, but at their no answers I got really very upset.
Many many thanks.
Have a lovely day.
Hi Ben, I tried to speak with you from your page, but they ask me again for payment.
OK. Thank you
Hi Ben, many thanks for your advice. I am going to send them a letter with a special delivery. In case of a negative result, I will be back to you.
Have a quiet night.
Kind Regards, Simona
