Thank you for sharing this information with me.
Generally, the maximum hours of work per week is 48 hours. You cannot work more than 48 hours per week.
I understand your concern is the unpaid wage that you should have collected from your employer, correct?
Did you sign any contract with the concerned company regarding your service?
Do you have any document that would prove that you were contracted for this particular service?
I just want to ask your location because it varies.
Thank you for clarifying.
You must first notify the Labour Relations Agency and discuss the option of Early Conciliation. This is because most potential claimants will not be able to proceed to tribunal without at least considering this option. If early conciliation does not succeed in resolving your employment dispute, the LRA will provide you with a certificate which you will be required to reference in your claim form.
You may get started on this process by going to the LRA website and completing the form: https://www.lra.org.uk/early-conciliation/employees-and-their-representatives
But I would suggest that you write a formal demand letter first to the company before proceeding with filing a complaint with the LRA so that you would have a documentary evidence that you have already exhausted your efforts in setting the dispute.
Write a demand letter to them demanding your payment. If they still would not give you your payment you can file a complaint to the LRA.
Yes, it would count as a form of demand.
Is there anything else I can help with today?
With regards ***** ***** unfortunately I am unable to help because I cannot ascertain the location and name of your employer. However, what I can advise you is that you forward the demand letter to the person that is connected to the company.
Do you have any contact with their existing employees or supervisors?
