    Changing Jobs - Financial Help?

    Hi everyone,

    Was just working out my money for the current month up until the 20th of next month when I get paid in my new job. I leave here on the 23rd so won't get a full wage.

    I'm pretty much going to struggle as anyone would.... does anyone know if there's anything I can claim or anyway to get some financial help during the switch over in jobs ?

    I won't get a full month next month either because I won't have worked the full month at the new place.

    Any advice appreciated.


    Thanks all.

    Not that I know of it was basically the paid untaken holiday that covered my gap of over a month.

    Hmmmm ideally don't want to go with somewhere like Wonga... not that they'd give me any money anyway. I think I'll get unpaid holiday here. I have 20 days holiday left so I should get that paid. But we will see

    you should get any unpaid holidays paid on top of the wages. So you will get the days worked in the month + 20 days holiday, should be plenty for you.

    Should be mate, but let me tell you.... If there's anything they will get out of paying it's this! I'll bet a months wages I dont get paid holiday.

    And I'll also guarantee I wont get it for another month!

    Unpaid holiday

    When you leave your job you should be paid any holiday pay owed to you. If you employer refuses, you can ask an employment tribunal to enforce your rights. You must make a claim within three months of the date your employment ended.

    If your employer refuses to pay you holiday pay, you can ask an employment tribunal to enforce your rights. You may be able to make a claim for all your unpaid holiday pay, even if it goes back for more than a year. You must make a claim within three months of the last date you were not paid holiday pay.

    If you are owed holiday pay, you should seek the help of an experienced adviser, for example, at a Citizens Advice Bureau. For details of your nearest CAB, including those that give advice by e-mail, click on nearest CAB.
    Direct from CAB website.

    Is this true for jobs in the private sector too?

    Under section 1 of the Employment
    Rights Act 1996 employers should include in a written statement of employment
    particulars, sufficient detail to enable the precise calculation of a worker’s
    entitlement to accrued holiday pay on termination of employment.

    Accrued
    holiday on termination need not to be rounded to the nearest half day – payment
    can be made for the exact amount of leave accrued.
    Yes.

    Speak to people to whom you make payments. I had the same thing last month. Got a part wage from one post and had to wait 6 weeks in my new post as they sent me the wrong forms for inland revenue, so didn't put me on payroll in time. The new role also has expenses incurred which take around 4 weeks to turn around too, so I had to find a way to bridge the gap.
    After speaking with a few people to who'm I make payments monthly (a loan and a car on lease) I've managed to reduce the amount going out for those payments for just the one month. I've also stopped the credit card automatically paying the full amount and changed for this month only to the minimum amount.
    That's enough to get me through.
    it might not be that easy, but it's got to be worth a try. At least if there's something you can't pay on time, they can't say you didn't ask! I've found most places to be reasonable under these kind of circumstances; most of them (it seems) would rather you speak to them and arrange something than just wait until you can't make the payment.

    Worth remembering your unpaid holiday is only the allowance which you have accrued so far.

    check https://www.gov.uk/calculate-your-holiday-entitlement for what you are owed.

    Trouble with that calculator is that it only works on the statutory holiday entitlement so if you actual holiday entitlement is more i.e additional days due to long service it's not accurate.

    While you still have the job look into extending your overdraft facility on your account to cover you over the lean month. If you're confident you can 'regain' it slowly it should be fine. Don't go with a payday loan company. They are charlatans and fraudsters.
