OH used to work at this toy/gadget shop for my former friend who was his employer! anyways on 3rd of May OH wrote to the employer he wants to take holiday in June cos his contract says holiday period is from July 1st-till July 1st, OH has been working there since August and had only used 11 days of holiday at that time, the contract said 28 days paid holiday a year and OH thinks hes suppposed to have 17 days left but the employer calls him about 8pm saying he only has 7 days left :?
Anyways the next day when OH got to work at 9:30am he got a letter from employer saying hes actually entitled to 25.6666 days a year and has 14.6 for holiday left :? same day at 12:30 he give OH a letter saying hes suspended and due to attend a disciplinary on thursday...
reasons for suspension:
*apparently OH has been shooting BB guns at customers (whatever that means)
*OH has been reducing prices of products with his permission (err no he hasnt!)
*OH took £20 out of the till (wtf my OH would never steal and a mere £20 how insulting
disciplinary hearing on thursday but employer says all this stuff to him but has no proof
anyway will give you a background on this guy, he owns to shops and sells online too he started online only initially but decided to open shops instead, hes been having bailiff round since November last year cos he can never keep up with payments! especially last month he had to close his shop 6 times last month and OH lost a lot of working hours :( he pays all his staff late every single month and accused all of his staff members of stealing, in the past 6 months 7 people have stopped working for him, 4 left 3 got fired so instead of 2 or 3 people working in the shop at one time one person had to do it mostly my Oh cos hes good at his job he had to take up more responsibility basically running the shop on his own and no extra pay- OH had been looking for a new job since november but nothing was coming up so he just had to stick with it
I stopped being friends with the guy in october last year cos of the way he treated my OH
* OH asks for his holiday pay, gets suspended then gets fired without a letter(employer said he'll call Oh on friday after the disciplinary but no call so OH goes there on Saturday and employer tells him hes posted a letter saying hes dismissed, we still havent received that letter :? )
question is whats the best way to get the nincompoop to pay up???
OH started a new job on the 10th and is very busy at the moment and i have lots of time and i want what we're owed :)
