DH has recently left his job for a better one. However he received a wageslip from his old employer stating he will be paid for a full months work. However when we checked the bank there's an £800.00 less difference. We are in dire straits! Help! Advice needed xx

Has he spoken to his employer to ask why the discrepancy? I not, I would start there.

He has emailed hr this morning but they said DH needs to speak to the supervisor on duty :/ so now he is waiting for a response from them. I feel sick with anxiety. We have 3 children to feed and bills to pay sad

Has he actually worked the full month?

No he was on annual leave for 4 weeks when he handed in his notice. They accepted it and said he will be paid up to and including the 22nd. There was 2 days he was supposed to have worked but he couldn't get there. They said he will be paid any holidays outstanding.
His wage slip says he will be getting 1300 but the amount paid into the bank was only 400.

Did they deduct additional holiday (ie used more than accrued).

No the deductions on the wage slip are clear and what we expected (national insurance, pension etc)
The holidays he took was booked and approved earlier in the year.

While it was booked and approved earlier in the year had he actually 'earned' it (accrued it). If his holiday entitlement is 30 days per year that's calculated for the whole year and accrues at 2.5 days per month.

If he took no leave at all up to today he'd only have accrued 20 days. Anything taken over and above that the employer is entitled to recoup it.

Does he know if he was owed any holiday, or had he used more than he was accrued? His HR dept should be able to tell him this.

If he has used more than he has accrued then he would owe it back.

Any deductions for holidays should show on the payslip though. If they have taken off any holidays, they shoild issue a new payslip for this period.

When does the holiday year start? It's pretty standard to say hols accrued but untalented will be paid it doesn't always mean there are any, but on the flip side it means holidays taken over those accrued will be deducted.

Does the net pay into the bank agree with the net pay on the payslip?

Because, if not, then something has gone wrong.

However, normally I would assume that one is paid for each calendar month (ie 1st to 31st), so if you leave on 22nd then that is 8 days or so lower than a usual month.
