Hello C Homer,
Thank you for your question.
Have you already written to them to about this? Have they acknowledged the amount you are owed?
If not you should write to them immediately asking for payment within a reasonable time (eg.7 or 10 ten working days) failing which you will seek independent legal advice. If they do not reply then you should seek out an employment litigation solicitor who will write a "letter before action" to them, which if unreplied may leave with only the option of making a claim against them through an employment tribunal (though you will be able to claim the costs of this from them).
Are you aware of your employer being in financial difficulty? Such financial trouble that they could be wound up?
If the company is insolvent you can claim your redundancy payment from the National Insurance Fund.
If this has been useful please kindly click accept so that I may be rewarded for my efforts. It will be gratefully received and you will be free to ask follow up questions.
If the company is in financial difficulty and there are 7 employees who are all owed money then you should certainly go and see a solicitor specialising in the employment litigation as a matter of urgency..
