My employer owes me money. What can I do?

If you are not able to persuade your employer to pay the money owed, you have the right to take them to an Employment Tribunal or County Court.

Not paying your wages when they are will usually be a breach of contract. If you continue not to be paid all you are owed then you will be entitled to take action. If you think your employer is in serious breach of your contract, you may have a case for constructive dismissal should you resign. You can find out more about constructive dismissal here.

You do not need to have left work to bring a claim for unpaid wages but the rules on what you can claim and how far your claim can backdated are complicated. The amount of time you have before you must issue your claim will differ depending on what you are claiming for, and whether your claim is in an Employment Tribunal or County Court.

Employment law has strict time limits. Good cases can be lost before they even start through hesitation or delay. In most cases you will have just three months from the date your employment ends to notify Acas of a potential claim for unfair dismissal. It is important you get in contact with us as soon as you possible so we can help before it is too late. Find out how we can help you with our fixed fee Acas Early Conciliation service here.
