Believe it or not, there are some very good area managers about.  We have one of them. Danger is Humph is p*****g him off too.  Can't see him staying for too long.  It really would be a crying shame if he went because he really makes life easy for us.  He allows us to do our job and seems to shield us from His Majesty.  It also seems that he has to battle the poison dwarf too, who seems to have an imput even though he does not cover our area.  Brown tongued is not really a strong enough description for the dwarf.

Well the obvious first step is to send your details in, in my experience of working with fob, if you dont get paid on time, ring him and tell him youve not been paid.
Seeing as you have now left the pub I dont know how long it will be before you work for them next, I would deduct my wages from the first weekly take from the next job, that is the only SURE way you wil get paid, dont expect them to be cooperative cos they wont be, they are in meltdown at the moment.

Not sure on the legal side ,but could this be classed as theft ? A visit to the police,or take them to the small claims court,not sure on maximum amount you can claim for.It,s worth considering,all the best.

Pursuing Payment - Legal Advice

In the event of someone (not employed by the company) who has completed contractual work as a relief manager, it would be considered by the courts, that the brewery would not permit that individual to start work at those premises unless it was agreed by both parties, the terms by which the contract is mutually agreed. Verbal contract is also recognized in English law, although proof without a third-party witness, can sometime be a problem - unless it could be considered a 'reasonable understanding of the arrangement', based on previous example or experience.

It would also be considered in the eyes of the law, 'unreasonable', for the brewery not to pay for the contracted services, without good legally binding reason, within the prior agreed payment period - or in the absence of such 'payment period' being agreed - 30 days. beyond that period (or the agreed payment), an interest charge may be added to the account, based on current 'base rate', and charged additionally, on a continual basis.

Failure of full payment (without good legally, provable reason) would constitute a breach of contract, which can then be pursued by the plaintiff, through the courts - and can even be initiated online, using this Government website... Her Majesty's Court Service - Money Claim Online
Always in support of the Samuel Smiths Brewery - although very concerned about the current company strategy towards its staff and customers, as exercised by the Directors. We believe in promoting common sense, decency, compassion, fairness and compliance with company, employment and English law.

Do any of you guys and dolls realise some managers are paid less than relief managers,so sack the reliefs hope they apply for the pubs they are holding [many are] and pay them less,I do believe reliefs sign to work only 48 hours.This rings of a F.O.B idea,does anyone else think this is plausable?
