How to act in case your employer refuses to pay you?

Sadly to say, this is not a rare situation, when workers suffer from unscrupulous behavior of their employers. 

Sterling Law was honored to represent rights of employees of a large construction company. The employer (the company) continually refused to pay salaries to the construction workers. When the collective claim against the company was set, the employer had to react. He decided to provide numerous untruthful excuses to the Court to justify himself. Firstly, the employer stated that those builders who provided collective claim have not been working for his company. The argument failed, so the next one was that the amount of outstanding salaries was made out and did not correspond to reality. The final argument was that the quality of  work was not satisfactory. 

Employees instructed Sterling Law to represent them. Our Trainee Solicitor Michael Iatsukha, did not leave any chances for the employer to win the case. Due to Michael robust presentation and active communication with the employer’s representative, Sterling Law was able to protect builders’ rights in full. 

As a result, the employer agreed to pay a quarter of the claim at the beginning. Later, Sterling Law pressed for the full amount of outstanding salaries to be paid out to the workers, which was done in due course. Should you find yourself in a similar situation, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We are ready to do our best to fight for justice and protect your rights.
