Theft of service? Job not paying me properly... Watch

    Alright I'll break it down for you:

    For 2 months I've been working in a kitchen 4 days a week 5pm until finish which is anything between 12 - 4. Over this period of time my payments have been un-structured and wrong. I received £450 after a month (even though they pay weekly) which isn't a months worth. I have continued to moan and question them about it to which I get the same reply of "we'll sort it out for next Friday". I was told last week that Friday I would get half of what I'm owed over all, instead I got less than a weeks wages of £180!

    I have been writing all my hours down and have given them the hours for manual use but nothing seems to be happening and it's becoming both frustrating and un fair considering they now owe me over £1000 gross payment.

    Is this theft of service or any other terms of violating the law and what can I do? I'm considering the idea of refusing to work until I'm paid the entire amount but will that make things more complicated/is there another way of getting through this?

    Thanks for the help everyone. Also I am on a contract of 32 hours a week

    Try telling them you will take it further if they dont sort it. This sometimes scares people into sorting things.
    Or is there a higher manager you could sort it with.

    I have actually spoken to the wife of the business owner who is apparently the one in charge of finance among employees and although I have given her all the information I can it hasn't been sorted with no real indication as to why

    It's at a beef-eater grill, so a large organisation
