I have just won my tribunal 3 days a go and I was wondering how long it would take before I get my  back pay they owe me ?

    Good news. It can take anything up to about 8 weeks to receive any money owed and to put your award into payment. This mean with Christmas and new year being so close it will probaby be in the New year now.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
