It’s one of those things that has happened to a lot of us, that moment when you’ve gone to pay for something only to have your card rejected, or you’ve visited a cash machine to have your request refused. Sometimes this is our own fault, we’ve miscalculated what we have or forgotten about a particular bill, or said bill has been for more than was expected (anyone who has ever gone over their mobile data allowance will know this feeling). These things happen and they have to be dealt with.
However, it’s a different matter when you check your balance expecting to see your wages but instead, you see that they haven’t gone in. It is deeply worrying when you check your bank balance after payday and see an entire week/month wages have not been paid into your account. It is a difficult situation to be in, and it can be hard to know how to approach, or what your rights are.
This article will discuss the best way to handle such a situation under English Employment Law.
