Default Won employment tribunal but employer not paying

Hi,

Earlier this year I was working for a company which was paying me irregularly (had been there over 5 years in total) and the problem was slowly getting worse as I wasn't being paid a full months wage so what they owed me was going up.

Once I decided I couldn't afford to work there any more I spoke to Citizens Advice who arranged for me to speak to someone who specialised in employment law. He told me to start looking for a new job and to leave the company I was at as soon as I did.

I was very fortunate and found a new job straight away. Once I'd left my old job I gave the old company a few weeks to pay (which they didn't) so I started employment tribunal proceedings. My ex employer didn't enter any response and the tribunal found that my claim was well founded and awarded me the full amount I was claiming.

They were told to pay within a certain amount of time otherwise interest would start being added on. Today was the last day of that time.

What should be my next course of action? Do I pay the 60 to get the HCEO involved straight away?

Hi

Yes - you basically need to decide how to pursue enforcement because clearly they don't feel inclined to pay. Follow the link below to information on how you can do this. This links to the Court Service form that needs to be filled in if you go down this route :
