    I work for a small company and have been doing some work for them over the holidays; commission based work that gets me a decent amount of money for every task I do (don't want to disclose too much info on here). About 2 1/2 weeks ago I handed in my work and my invoice on time, and a few days later was given my targets for the month ahead. I was expected to be paid by at least a week after I'd handed everything in. I then got a message from the company saying I needed to amend a couple of the documents I had written which I then did well before the deadline and again handed them in, in all good time. 2 1/2 weeks later I have still not been paid, and I am getting rather annoyed.

    Considering I've not been paid for my previous month's work, AND been given this month's work to do on top of this, I'm getting rather angry. I'm owed over £100 and this money I really need to go towards my rent, since my student loan doesn't come in for at least another 2 weeks. It's nearly October and I handed in my work at the beginning of September.

    Is it fair for me to say "I do not want to start October's tasks until I have guaranteed payment of last month's work"? I'm running out of money and I think it's unfair that they don't hold up the end of the bargain if I've held up mine.

    Cheers guys
