Arrow Legal Advice Required!

hi folks,

i was just wondering if people had any advice on what i should do next, i was thinking a small claims.

basically its to do with back dated wage increase.

heres the run down:

pre-Jun 10 - i was on level 3 lower band pay on 19,357.80 annual (all good)
09 Jun 10 - Acheived Q-Ops and moved to Level 5 Higher, as defined in trade contract. - 24,074.64
10 Jun 10 - submitted AIP qualification and was accepted (should have moved to level 6 higher but didnt)
09 Jun 11 - Moved to level 6, annual increment (defined by employment contract) - 25,245.84
05 Jul 11 - Moved to level 7 (AIP taken in effect, due to me contacting Admin every day pestering them) - 26,404.68

my problem lies in the fact that my AIP was submitted and accepted and placed on my file on 10 Jun 10, this is an automated procedure and should automatically ammend pay accordingly. this AIP was not taken in effect untill last July, so it was 1.5 years of not having increased pay.

i am now on the correct pay but 1500 approx. down from that 1.5 years of not having the increased pay, which they promised me!

now my station admin admit that i should have the back pay but im still waiting...

im due to leave and will be unable to chase it once im out...is there anyway i can take the Royal Air Force to a small claims to gain this money? or should i go about it another way.

also on another note, i am have taken a case against them at the same time for an injury but both of these shouldnt effect each other.

whats your guys advice on what i should do?

any more info needed id be happy to divuldge, in regards to this only

If its written into their policy, you shouldn't need to go to small claims.... any decent employer would honour it and just pay up in your next pay packet. I've had mine increased this month, but told would be backdated to 1st August 'cos of delays, and they did.... go direct to payroll/HR, be less hassle than the claims route I suspect.

p.s. if you do go claims route though, make sure you have got a copy of the agreement/contract which stipulates what and when these rises are supposed to happen

i see your point...its definately stipulated that every year (to the date) that you increase in levels upto level 9 maximum where you would mark time untill you leave or you get promoted to the next rank from where you start again on a higher wage...if that makes sense.

AIP are also a contractal thing, you have 2 in your entire military career. ive used 1 so i have 1 left. basically it allows you to skip a year waiting for the next level and puts you straight there if that makes sense.

so to explain mine, i went to level 5 higher, put my aip in which should have taken me straight to level 6 higher instantly, then a year from that date go to level 7 higher.

my problem is that because i am leavin i fear that this money may be lost entirely as they would think because im gone the problem will go...but im going to fight this...its 1500 approx...im not gonna lie down

I'm sure that they will pay - they've acknowledged that they owe you the money - it's just a waiting game.

It's not the fast track county court you need, its an industrial tribunal - same thing but one specifically deals with employment matters.

Do not go to court about this - it will place a blemish on your employment record - new employers will assume that you are a trouble maker and think twice about offering you a job.

Why are you moving from the RAF? I would have thought they were the most stable employers you can chuck a stick at at the moment.

thanks for the advice clanless...ive spoken to HR in glasgow and informed them that it needs to get sorted asap and hinted i may get legal advice to where there reply was, it has now been escalated to the high levels of the pay department thats a good sign....

just got fed up of the bullshit...why do a job full off bullshit where i can do another and get paid the same plus more...as for stability, i wouldnt say that...you seen the redundancies they are doing...ruthless...some guys have done nearly 32 years being made redundant and losing out on loads.
