Is it legal for a private care company to not pay an employee on time because they have not received timesheets from other employees?
Hi, a little advice needed please. I work as a support worker in a private care company and every month I am responsible for submitting my own timesheet. Every month I do so by the date they state it should be submitted. This month I emailed them to ask if my payslip has been generated as my paydate is the 29th. I often have to ask them for my payslip as otherwise they just send it to my employer ( the mother of the disabled lady I work for ). Once she gets this she then transfers via a banking app to my account. The last two months she has notified me that she has transferred and somehow I am still waiting ten hours later for it to reach my account. So as weekends are disregarded for payment if I don't get my payslip soon it's possible I am going to be paid late ! The email I received from the private care company say's they haven't done it yet as they have not received timesheets for the other employees. And asked me to contact my employer.... I submitted mine 2 weeks ago and now it looks like I am going to be penalised because others haven't.
Can anyone advise me if this is correct and legal please . Thank you.
