I am an apprentice in a Large company and im being put through a great deal of stress due to HR’s general ineptitude.

History:

In august 06 my company put me through the disiplinary procedure for an incident that was farcical, from start to finish the process took 3 months, and I was given a written warning and had my yearly pay rise withheld, the company took all of the statements within 1 week of the incident and the remainng 2 1/2 months was purely waiting for HR to make a decision, all the while I was given no updates and was under the impression i was going to lose my job.


In july 07 my union negotiated a payscale regrade for all the apprentices in the company which should have resulted in a substantial payrise for all apprentices.

In september 07 I was supposed to receive the pay regrade, which was not processed correctly resulting in me only receiving a meager rise, this issue has being going on for almost 2 months now, i have not been told how my pay was originally calculated I have not been told if my argument for having my salary changed is a valid one and by the looks of it the issue is going to run over christmas. I have explained the stress I’m under to my line manger and they don’t seem to be doing anything to speed the process up

Questions

-In the last year i think ive been put through almost 5 months of needless stress, Do I have any legal recourse for stress ive been put under.

-When my salery is corrected i inevitably will have to wait till the end of the month for the money which hopefully will be the end of january, What rights do I have to get them to issue money before then
