What is a pay dispute?

A pay dispute arises when an employee feels that their salary or other remuneration is not fair or appropriate. This could be due to a perceived difference in pay compared to colleagues, or an issue with the way bonuses or other forms of pay are awarded.

All employees are entitled to an individual written pay statement. The statement must show gross pay and take-home pay, with amounts and reasons for all deductions. If there is a dispute about the amount you take home or a deduction, then you can start formal internal procedures or, if the problem persists, refer the case to an employment tribunal.

If your employment has come to an end, there is a time limit to bring the claim, so it’s important to seek legal advice right at the start of the dispute. If you are not being paid, we are on hand to give you advice on your rights, who you should contact to investigate the issue and what your options are.

What is a bonus dispute?

A bonus dispute occurs when an employee feels that they have not received a fair or appropriate bonus. This could be due to a disagreement about the way bonuses are calculated, the terms of a bonus scheme, or an issue with the amount of a bonus payment.

Bonus payments are not always as straightforward as they seem. They are governed by your contract terms rather than statutory rights, so it’s important you fully understand the terms of any bonus scheme you may be a part of.

We can help you identify your bonus terms and explain the process you should take. It’s still possible to make a claim for a bonus payment even after your employment has been terminated. However, we would need to investigate the specific wording and drafting of the contract and the reason for termination, as they will be relevant.
