Has my employer broken her contract of employment with myself, by paying my salary later than the date in my contract of employment
Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you today. What does your contract say about payment date and how long have you worked there for?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Hi Jenny I have worked for my employer for 10 years and my pay date is the 6th of each month
Hi thank you can you tell me a bit more about the late payments?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
They are either 1 or 2 days late and I miss my direct debits as a result
Have you received bank charges as result of this and how long has this been going on for?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
2 months, no my bank is understanding about the late payments
Ok your employer is in breach of contract. You should submit a formal grievance to say that you are concerned about these late payments which are in breach of your contract of employment. You should ask for reassurance that you will be paid on time in the future and say that , in the event there is a continued breach, and you suffer a financial loss (for example by way of bank charges) you will have no alternative but to claim these back. Hopefully this will resolve matters and they will ensure you are paid on time in the future. You employer cannot take action against you for raising a grievance of this nature. If you have any further questions please ask. If I have answered your question I would be grateful if you would take the time to rate my answer. Thank you and all the best.
