Thanks for your question. Please don't forget to press Accept once you get my answer. For now please let me know:
1. Have you formally approached your employer in relation to this?
If you are not being paid for the hours you have worked and are entitled to then that cold amount to unlawful deduction of wages, which you are protected against under law. This is especially true if it is your employer's responsibility to track your hours and they have failed in their duty to do so.
You can try nd resolve this by raising a formal grievance first. If that does not resolve the situation then you may give them formal notice to pay you within 7 days, failing which you will take them to an employment tribunal.
If they fail to pay you, then you have 3 months from the last time you weren't paid correctly to submit your claim to try and recover what you are owed.
I hope this helps. Please press the ACCEPT button. You would still be free to ask any follow up questions for free. Thank you
