Employer threatining not to pay me ( Advice needed)

need some advice please. I work as a chef for a company who basically book you in for work when needed. When you arrive you go to the staffing and Payroll bit and get a jobcard and your jacket hat and appron, I get signed in by the head chef and signed out when we leave. Anyway this evening I borrowed a fleece from a porter to go for a cigarette outside, as I went pass the staffing and payroll big one of the women who does the payroll and hands out the clothes to all the staff spotted I had the jacket and wanted it back at the end of the day. At the end of the day when I got changed I went to hand my jobcard back in and she asked for the jacket and I said someone else has got it, she then threatened that if she doesn't get the fleece back then I won't get paid! She isn't a manager or high up she just deals with payroll and handing out the bits and that. What I wanna know is does she have any right in trying to stop my jobcards from going through and even trying to remove my jobs from wherever they go to. I haven't done anything wrong in anyway what so ever all over a fleece. Anyway any advice please?

So why didn't you tell her it was the porters when she first mentioned it?

OP, this is the best thing to do. They are the employment specialists and are currently helping me with an on going process I have with a former employer.

Give them a bell, they don't bite and are very helpful and knowledgeable :)

Also OP, you are probably blowing this out of all proportion. I'm sure that the porter can back your story up and go to your boss. Some people get a right buzz out of thinking they have power and being complete assholes to people.

I'm sure it will work out fine.

if worst comes to worst and you lose pay/your job. Take them to an employment tribunal, Been studying them and they seem like a good earner ;)

Just explain ur situation im sure it'll be fine

They can't withold your wages. Contact ACAS.


looks like the wages lady is trying to work beyond her power, maybe talk to you employer about the matter, as ACAS says most small cases are "usually best dealt with informally." if that doesn't help then by all means escalade it.

EDIT: your title is slightly confusing, but is your employer telling you your not going to get paid or this pay lady?
