My Employer Owes Me Money – What Can I Do?

Dated:   

So you've moved into a fabulous new job – great, but your former employer still owes you money.

Make sure you get the money you are owed from your previous employer

Sometimes, once you leave their employment, employers fail to pay money to which you are entitled. It is still possible for you to claim it back from them using our simple and easy Money Claims Service.

Is Your Employer Holding Back Your Money?

If you've found yourself in a situation where you’ve left your job but your former employer still owes wages, a bonus, or commission payments, first and foremost you should speak to your employer or human resources department. It may be a simple clerical error that can be sorted without any hassle.

In some cases, your employer may be holding back money in the belief that, now you've left, there's no obligation to pay. If this is the case, a more direct approach may be needed.

Some do use the HM Courts & Tribunals Money Claim Online Service (MCOL) of their own accord and don't seek legal advice before hand – this can often prove to be a mistake.
