The petrol float of £1000 is owed, the remainder I do not know about as they have not detailed it. The wages I that they are refusing to pay me for 10 days is sufficient to cover this amount.
Am I safe to state these facts in a letter back to them?, if so how might I phrase it?
I apologise for bothering you again but I have today received a response to the letter I sent to my previous employers following your advice last week. Would you mind having a look at the content below and advising me of where I stand please. Thank you very much.
Although we accept that an employee is ordinarily entitled to be paid wages up to the date of termination, this does not apply where there has been a fundamental breach of contract prior to that date. The act of you commencing employment with Creative Parking Solutions (CPS) prior to 16 January 2013 is such that you have not accrued any entitlement to wages from that date onwards. Based on your own written admissions the latest you commenced working for CPS was 7 January 2013. In the circumstances, we have no comfort that the date given was in fact your start date with CPS. As such we do not feel it appropriate to recognise any period of accrued liability on the part of ParkingEye for your wages for 2013. Hence, we must again draw your attention to the outstanding sums that you owe the company.
How/What should I reply with? Do I do it through the small claims court? Have they grounds for a counter claim?
Thank you for your help.
