Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
What reason have they given you for not providing you with a payslip as yet?
Hi there. No problem at all and thank you for your response; please leave it with me. I am in court today so will prepare my advice during the day and get back to you at the earliest opportunity. There is no need to wait here as you will receive an email when I have responded. Thank you.
Many thanks for your patience. Before you consider any more formal action you would be best advised to pursue this internally directly with the agency. Check if they have a formal grievance or complaints procedure and follow it. If there are others in the same position as you it may be a good idea for all of you to get together and make a group complaint.
If this does not resolve matters then your only way of trying to get the money you believe you are owed is via the small claims court. It is not that expensive to pursue it through the and even if you lose you would not be responsible for the employer’s legal fees so it is a relatively low risk option. Of course that should be used as a last resort only but it is there if you need it and starting to put the employer on notice that you may go down that route could actually work in twisting their arm a bit to try and resolve this.
Please take a second to leave a positive rating for the service so far by selecting 3, 4 or 5 stars. I can continue answering follow up questions and in particular can also discuss the steps you need to follow if you ate to pursue this further. Don’t worry, there is no extra cost and leaving a rating will not close the question and we can still continue this discussion. Thank you
