Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello my name is***** am a solicitor and I am happy to help you today. What would you like to know about this situation please?
No she is absolutely not entitled to withhold wages in this way, it is in breach of contract.
I would suggest you raise a grievance, you can also start an early claim dispute with ACAS at www.acas.org.uk
In addition if your employment transferred to the new employer under TUPE then they were not entitled to take away paid breaks as TUPE laws prevent them from doing this, you can also raise this issue in writing and with ACAS.
Is there anything else I can help you with today please?
Ok you can raise this with ACAS although if it happened more than 3 months ago this will be out of time unfortunately.
You should definitely pursue the unpaid wages though.
Is there anything else I can help you with today?
Sorry what do you mean?
ACAS are a conciliation service between employer and employee so they assist with disputes.
If you have a claim to bring in the Employment Tribunal for unpaid wages you have to put a dispute to them first before you can bring the claim.
Do you have any further questions about this?
she sounds dreadful.
You need to report this to ACAS it is not right for her to withhold wages and control your money like that.
All the best with it. Is there anything further I can help you with today please?
no problem at all, please take the time to rate my answer before leaving the site, thank you and all the best.
