Dear Readers, I need every advice i can get here. I got a job with an accounting company and worked for 2 months (i got another job before the 2nd month ended).
Meanwhile, throughout my stay there, i was not given any offer letter to sign. When i got this new job, i asked my new employer to give me 1 week in order for me to close up on a few jobs and submit my resignation letter. In other words, i gave 1 week notice before leaving.
Other staff of the former company received their September salary just last week. I called to ask for mine and the excuses i have been getting are:
*You did not give due notice so you’ll forfeit your salary since you signed the contract (which i did not).
*You did not close up your accounts which is one of the criterium for getting paid (this actually came up during my last week there).
Now i have explained to the woman that i did not sign any of such contract and so the rules are not binding on me but she is insisting on not paying me. Infact, she is not picking my calls, she has been sending me text messages.
The pay is small, yes, but i do not think i deserve such treatment.
Why did i not just leave without notice and get paid for 1 week at my new place (would have been something at least).
Please i need advise on how to go about this because i need my money,it is small but it will buy me somethings.
If need be, i do not mind dropping her full name and company’s name here. She is doing this to all of us that have left which i feel is cheating.
What should I do ?
