So it's currently Sunday afternoon an Easter bank holiday weekend and I am running short of money. I have been on holiday the past 2 weeks after handing in my notice as I have found a new job. I took my holiday and said I would work a week before I leave. I returned to work today for my last week. Wednesday was pay day but I have not received my wages yet everyone else has. Being a bank holiday there is no way I can speak to anyone about this until Tuesday. I gave plenty of notice and I my wages have been held back. Red flag was made more obvious when I arrived at work today to find out my pay slip wasn't in the office yet everyone else's was. I am so angry. I work as a housekeeper. Am on low wages and am disgusted that the company I work for owns many casinos and I will struggle if I am not paid soon. What can i do? Can work do this to me? I am so infuriated and I want to take the matter into my own hands even though I know that is not what I should do. I'm also annoyed I didn't realise that I had not been paid and I could of sorted this out sooner.

Your distress is obvious and justified... But, as you rightly say, there is nothing that can be done before Tuesday and the return of your HR/Payroll people. - It is really unacceptable how some (particularly large) firms treat staff; but other than sympathy, there is little or nothing anyone can offer. Sorry. :(

The time to contact them was Wednesday or Thursday. Leaving it to the bank holiday weekend just means no one is around. Pointless blaming the company for having the weekend off.

I'd say yes work can do this to you by the fact they have done it to you. Likely to be a mistake somewhere along the line you can contact them about sorting it out this week.

I've been more than fair with giving them notice but they haven't by not paying me any money so now I am expected to struggle. I actually have to wait until Tuesday until I know anything.

And could be a simple mistake.
Don't bet on it being vindictive or a decision by bosses until you know more than you do now.

Yes we gather that you will have to wait until Tuesday. As will pretty much anyone else with a pay issue in most companies.

An employee who has been paid month in, month out, sudenly being paid nothing when they have resigned but have outstanding pay. A mistake? Really? No payroll would make that mistake. It is almost certainly malicious on the facts given.

Well we know this payroll has not paid out. Its the only data we have.
Whether its a mistake or not we cannot know yet.

Hence I've been careful to use the term 'could'.

It may have been a simple thing that the accounts worked out the pay due with holiday and and other pay due and needed a director to sign off, as far as I can see your post not knowing the facts could send the person in today being in a very aggressive mood rather than listen to why it happened
