No I never received a contract, only an offer of employment and I never signed anything agreeing to it
No I am paid up-to-date. They sent a letter saying I need to pay the holiday money I owe plus this money in 7 days. I am not paying anything in 7 days. I intend to offer a payment plan for the holiday money as I have been left unemployed by the fact I couldn't stay there so don't have any money. I am not making a claim for constructive dismissal or anything as I don't want any more stress and they are known for making people's lives difficult once they leave anyway.
Thanks so much Ben, you have put my mind at rest.
You are most welcome, all the best
