I had a Limited company UK contract, with an Agency and worked at their end-client.
After working for a few months, my job was suddenly terminated by the hiring manager (i.e. the end client, no reason given in writing). But she told (in writing ) that - they will be paying for the notice.
But in later email, the hiring manager told that (possibly trying to save money as I have left)- they have only 2 week's notice on contract (whereas in my contract it's a full 1 month notice)
I recall that - just before joining, they increased the Notice period duration and made me to sign it, at the last minute.
Furthermore, no amount was paid, after I left, (not even for the 1/2 month) The Agency will be now more concerned about their relation with client than asking for my money..
What are the employee's legal rights in such a case? Can I send a invoice to Agency for the full 1-month notice period?
Question- If we take into account the whole 1 month's pay then the claim is for more than Small claims court’s 10K limit. But 1/2 month’s amount is within Small claim track’s 10K limit.
So if they dispute for this whole month’s invoice due to half months worth additional amount, will I be able to access Small claims track?
While working there I was getting paid weekly, so could I raise separate weekly invoices for 1 month notice? Thanks a lot
