    Legal help re pay

    hi all.
    appreciate any help you can provide.
    I was working in London for a large multinational, and just returned home last week due to corona.
    My manager rejected my last time sheet on dubious grounds, which are not factually correct nor in my employment contract. On a side note, this manager had been bullying me the past few months which i lodged a complaint and had rejected my time sheet previously (once again on false pretences).

    I am back in Australia, so it is difficult for me to contact the company. Is there anything i can do? can anyone please help? i need this money and what i'm entitled to urgently. i know that the reasons they have given for me not getting paid are false (missing conference calls and not meeting delieverables). I know this is an attack because the manager hated me. I cannot disprove these because i have handed in my laptop. Please can you help or lead me to a government body that could assist. seriously appreicate any help and of course will provde more details if/when required.

    thank you

    Find a lawyer but without evidence (which you should have mailed to yourself given past examples) there is little you can do.

    Were you working via an agency and did you opt in or opt out (as that is a separate approach you could use) but without a signed timesheet there is little you can do.

        Working via an agency? Just invoice and when they don't pay, start dunning. Your contract is with the agency, not the client. The agency should be equally exercised about not getting their last week of commision. You've nothing to lose.
        Down with racism. Long live miscegenation!

            Dunning means chasing up the debt.

            Invoice the agency on the terms and conditions within your contract then pass it to Debt Collection and Debt Recovery from Safe Collections (who post on here) if the agency fails to pay on the contracted payment date.

              Absolutely contact Safe Collections. And invoice the agency today.

                I would suggest the following, since good communication resolves issues far better than firing guns.

                Use your computer and write a non-emotional email to the Agency and the "Manager". Grammatically correct, with no spelling errors.

                Lay out the circumstances as to the facts at hand - keep your emotions out of Professional correspondence.

                The days and times that you worked, and when you sent the timesheet off for approval and any other RELEVANT facts. If you have an email from the "Manger", cut and paste his responses and use them "infra-text" in italics and use them to refute the statements.

                Put a read receipt on the email, and wait 24 hours for a response. If no response is received then resend it, requesting a response.

                Phone the agent after a further 24 hours and take notes of what they say. Compose another email to them (don't cc the "Manager" in), so that you both have a record of the conversation.

                If there is no response, then collect your thoughts and consider any further action.

                You need a measured approach, not a hostile one.
                I was an IPSE Consultative Council Member, until the BoD abolished it. I am not an IPSE Member, since they have no longer have any relevance to me, as an IT Contractor. Read my lips...I recommend QDOS for ALL your Insurance requirements (Contact me for a referral code).
