    Hi guys,

    At the start of September I lost my job for 'not performing to satisfactory standard within the probation period' - Fine. It says on my letter than I'll receive all outstanding monies and my P45 within 7 days.

    I'm owed a weeks wages and £150 in fuel expenses for the month previous. It's now been a month and I still haven't received anything (I've double checked my bank statement to make sure)

    I'm gonna email my old boss but I want to do it in such a way that he doesn't need to reply, and for it basically to be a simple reminder he still needs to do this.

    I don't owe the company anything, I gave them my company phone and tools when I was sacked (had them all on me) so I'm just waiting on them.

    I was thinking

    'Dear Mr so and so,

    Following on from the letter dated September 4th I was due to receive all outstanding monies (listed below) and my P45 within 7 days. I am still yet to receive these.

    Many Thanks"

    That sound alright? or think I should word it differently?

    Dear you,

    I refer to my letter dated September 4th 2009 which stated I was to receive all outstanding monies owed to me along with my P45 within 7 days. I am still awaiting receipt of the same.

    Please can you arrange for the following payments to be made to myself.

    £xxxxxxxx for your servicing
    £xxxxxxxx for servicing your wife

    I look forward to receiving confirmation that the above payments have been made.

    Kind regards

    You haven't asked them anything?

    I usually add "please advise" in closing. This can be read as "where the **** is my money *****".

    If they try and screw me over I'll take them to the small claims court. I have a letter signed by both directors saying it'll be paid.

    Don't send them an email. Send them a letter via recorded delivery. Will probably look better if you do have to take it to Small Claims Court.
