  • Trial not paid

    Hello,
    I am working as a private cook in London,and been contacted by a private household, a lady, to cook for her and her family.We agreed on a paid trial. At the end of the trial , she told me that I was not good enough and I told her that I don't want either to work for her family as I won't meet their requirement

    (I am just a cook and they expect a michelin star CHEF ( A michelin For 12 pounds an hour ..how hilarious)+ she tried to teach me how to cook basmati rice ...not a good beginning.. )

    Well..At the end of my trial, she magically disapeared and phone me instead from somewhere in her massive house , just to say that she have no money on her to pay and will do a transfert on my bank account the following day.I was quite upset ,and told her, which she replied "what can I do ? I will do a transfert" Well, I knew that she was trying to mess it up with me which is quite a shame . it's been 4 days and she still have not made it. I texted her , and she does not answer.I know where she lives obviously.I have proof text of her saying it will be paid.
    What's my rights in it ? I don't want to leave it it go AT ALL, because people nowadays likes to not pay, and I am enough of that.
    What shall I do? What my option ?
    Thanks a lot for your advice, that would be much appreciated

    Lily

    Re: Trial not paid

    If you had an agreement, and as you say you have proof of this, then it is your right to be paid for work done.

    Write to her stating that unless you are paid in full you will seek to recover monies through the courts. I am sure they would not want to go through with that.

      You could also consider exposing them in the media
