Dispute in Wages
It is against the law for an employer to pay its workers less than what was promised, or to pay them nothing at all if they are owed wages. In such cases, a court will usually look for an employment contract that was made between the employer and the employee. The contract should specify the amount of wages and the time periods for pay. If such a contract is found, then the principles of contract law will apply.
The words ‘debt’ and ‘loan’ are often used synonymously, but with slightly different perspectives. A debt is something owed to a lender and a loan is something borrowed from a lender. The word ‘debt’ may be used collectively, while the word ‘loan’ is usually specific to the money borrowed by a particular individual or company.
If your debtor still won’t pay up? Then you may want to consider a Small Claims Court Action. PUR-SUE ACTION can guide you through the process.

Although you might be able to make future collections on the accounts, those accounts still require special management to ensure future business with the clients, explore different payment options and decide whether “legal recourse” is necessary.

The failing to perform any term of a contract, written or oral, without a legitimate legal excuse. This may include not completing a job, not paying in full or on time, failure to deliver all the goods, substituting inferior or significantly different goods, not providing a bond when required, being late without excuse, or any act which shows the party will not complete the work (“anticipatory breach”). Breach of contract is one of the most common causes of law suits for damages and/or court-ordered “specific performance” of the contract.
If you have received a cheque for payment and it was returned to you as an NSF cheque, your bank will withdraw the amount that you showed as a deposit. You will also have to pay for any shortfall resulting from the NSF cheque. The returned cheque belongs to you and you should keep it as evidence should you decide to “sue for the debt”.
