I've been off sick from my new job for 5 weeks now but have been sending in sick notes from my GP. My first pay came through on 12th Septemeber for an amount of less than £20! When I tried calling the wages dept I was told you can't call them direct - it has to go through your manager. I spoke with her and told her I've not been paid any SSP and two shifts I worked also haven't been paid. She said she would look into it and get back to me. That was over a week ago. Meantime I've sent in a letter detailing things and giving an estimate of my return to work date, but I want things sorted out before then. How they expect me to live on £20 I have no idea and I'm worried they will not sort this out properly. I have also claimed help with paying my rent whilst off sick and they want to see proof of my income including my SSP, which I don't have yet. So now not only am I still struggling with depression and anxiety but am getting slowly in to debt through no fault of my own. I am going to give them until next Wednesday to repsond to my letter, and then I'll be calling them. I'm starting to think they can stuff their job, but no way am I going to let them get away with not paying me.
