Max Lowry : Hi, welcome to Just Answer. I will help you with your question.
Max Lowry : The best way to do this would be to make a complaint to the Employment Tribunal, on the basis that they're unlawfully making deductions from you wages without permission.
Max Lowry : There is a guide of how to do this, together with the forms that you need, here: https://www.gov.uk/employment-tribunals/taking-a-case-to-an-employment-tribunal
Max Lowry : Alternatively, you could use the County Court, and making a typical breach of contract claim, and you could issue that online here: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk
Max Lowry : However, it's often better to use the Tribunal if you can for this type of thing.
Max Lowry : Hi ya.
Customer: How do I get in touch with a tribunal and would my job be safe?
Max Lowry : How long you worked there for?
Customer: 19 months
Max Lowry : Okay. If your employer dismissed you for seeking this money via the Tribunal, then it would be automatically unfair dismissal and you'd be entitled to compensation that for that.
Customer: Thank you but how do I get in touch with a tribunal? What could I say to my company to hopefully avoid this action?
Max Lowry : The link I gave you above has the forms you need to fill in and what you need to do - but basically, fill in the form, and send it off.
Max Lowry : Tell the employer you believe you're being paid short and he needs to address it with you explaining why it's not short. If you can't agree, then tell him you'll let the tribunal decide it. That's all you can do really.
Max Lowry : I hope this answers your question. If you need further information, either now or later, just let me know and I'll gladly help out. Please do remember to rate my answer as highly as you can for me. Thank you.
