Is it appropriate for an employer to not respond to an employee's email about not being paid, and instead only discuss the issue with the employee's manager?
Hi where do I stand on an employer/board member not paying me or other staff members on time due to being on holiday and not putting the proper provisions as we were 3 weeks without a manager also. Excuse was couldn't access online banking from abroad. This has in turn had an effect on bills not getting paid and about to run out of electricity/gas and not able to buy food in. They came back from holiday Friday night, apparently told new manager that we would get paid, now into Saturday night and still nothing due to complete incompetence. I have also emailed the person directly, stating this and other issues today, he hasn't directly acknowledged my email but instead asked my manager to arrange a meeting to address these issues. Should he have at least responded to me and CC the manager in also as a 3 way conversation?
