Those of you who read my blog and who follow me on social media will know of the problems I've faced with regards to my former employer at Claws 'N' Paws in Sheringham. Needless to say that it's been a very messy situation, and it's a situation that led me to instigate Employment Tribunal proceedings against her in an attempt to get the wages she still owes me.
In the run-up to the hearing this past Friday I conducted countless hours of research so I knew what to expect. To help my case I wrote a statement that I intended to make during the hearing. However, I never got to read this statement, mainly because my former employer no-showed, which meant that as she had no defense to offer the Judge ruled in my favour.
This meant that the statement I had prepared wasn't needed. So instead of shelving it I've decided to post it here. The statement basically tells of the situation I and my co-workers were placed in the run-up to the shop's closure, how we were treated, and how my former employer behaved.
As far as what exactly took place during the hearing, I will probably write a blog about that day in due course, but it's probably best to leave it until I get the full written judgement from the tribunal.
