You should return all work uniforms that you have and provide an explanation just like you explained to me about the other parts.You should make it clear that you most assuredly did show up to work but came a bit late and this was with the consent of your team – lead. You can actually tell them that if you end up going to court over this you have witnesses to substantiate this.You can tell him if yo like that you will not speak to any employee on the job site and will not attend the job site. He has no right to tell you who you can speak to off the job site. He is not the police or a court.If you go to court it will be his word against yours but that is often the case. It is rare that people have enough witnesses or documents to back up their side of the story. But in court you get to testify under oath and you get to cross-examine him when he testifies under oath and judges are very good at determining credibility.You would only pay a lawyer to send a demand letter to the employer.If you were to sue the employer that would be in small claims court and you would clearly self represent. And I would help you from this end whenever you needed help.If you are sent money by way of E transfer you can send a message back saying that you have accepted that amount as partial payment towards what is owed you.
Is there anything more that I can help you with at this point in time?
