Pay Dispute Mediation
Pay or wage disputes can arise when you have not been paid what you were expecting. Often, this can merely be a mistake or technical error and you should speak to your line manager or boss first to try and resolve the issue. If you don’t receive a satisfactory answer, you can take matters further with a grievance letter, mediation and, if all else fails, legal action through an employment tribunal. You have rights to be paid full wages, on time as agreed in your employment contract. For the most part, employers cannot deduct from or refuse to pay an employee’s wages lawfully.
Pay dispute mediation can be used as a tactful way to overcome problems, allowing you and your employer to have a constructive discussion about the discrepancy, all the while being guided by an objective mediator. Both parties should be willing to be open and work towards a mutually beneficial solution. The mediation process is ideal for coming to a pay dispute resolution in a way that can maintain positive working relationships. Only if disputes cannot be solved at this stage should the potentially long and costly process of legal action be initiated.
