Barnie, What is the legal entitlement regarding TOIL. If you resign and not had the opportunity to take the accrued Toil should this then be duly payed or is this forfeited?

Lawyer's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Contract (12mth fixed period) allows for TOIL to be accumulated and due to urgent requirements of the Company I have worked the equivalent of 6 weeks of TOIL. I have been told by the Company that no TOIL will be paid-out but it seems that they will renege on giving me the opportunity to take such TOIL before expiry of Contract end June 2016.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
