Thanks. The issue with pursuing the administrators is that all they are doing is following a strict order in which they have to pay off the company’s creditors. Employees rank a few tiers down and before you are allowed to get any money from the company’s assets, several other parties must be repaid in full and you only get money if there is anything left over.
The administrators will have a legal duty to follow the order of repayment so if you have not been given the money you are due then the chances are that this is because there simply is not enough to satisfy your debts. After all the reason a company becomes insolvent is because it is unable to pay its debts so there is clearly not enough money to even keep it going. That does mean that often the creditors of the company, including its employees, will not get the full amount they are owed, or anything at all. No one is to blame for this, it is just how businesses end up from time to time - it is nothing new.
So unless you have evidence that the administrators are holding back funds when you are supposed to be the next in line for a pay out, then it is somewhat pointless pursuing them. The fact they have not informed you or communicated with you is not really anything you can claim against them for and the only thing would be if they have paid all creditors above you in full, they have money left which is now due to you and they have unreasonably or illegally withheld it. If that is not the case, there is unlikely to be a claim and you will have to go through the Government’s compensation scheme.
I know it is natural to try and blame someone and to pursue them but you have to think whether there is actually grounds to do so in the first place.
