Am I entitled to the hours worked and materials bought out of my own pocket?

    A company I used to work for are seeking guidance from their solicitors, regarding a payment of £1000 they owe me.
    It took me months to send my time sheet but I’m eventually sent it them.
    I also sent them an invoice and bank statement to show evidence of materials I purchased out of my own pocket.
    Why on earth would they be doing this?
    I left the company suddenly, due to illness and I was in no fit state to let them know. I have doctors records to prove this.
    Any help would be really appreciated.

    You have invoiced them, presumably your invoice included a due by date. If they haven't paid you by the due by date you proceed to the next stage of sending them a letter giving them 14 days to settle your account, or you will take legal action. if they don't pay, you take legal action.

    What they claim they are doing is completely irrelevant to you. You know what they owe you, you have claimed it, if they don't pay, pursue it.

    I am an employee. Does that make a difference?

    Are you still employed by them? If not, it makes no difference. If you are, then start a formal grievance.

    Edit: Sorry, before you do that, how long have you been waiting to be paid?
