Need some advise gals, the local university owes me £600 in childcare fees are a mindee I look after. They are late in paying, should have received the money at the beginning of the Sept and Oct. It's been in the post for the last week still nothing has arrived. What do I do??? WOuld it be fair to tell parent can't have mindee until paid, i feel bad doing this as the uni pays me and not her, but contract is with her.
I'm going away tomorrow for a long weekend and needed the money!!

Raised my voice, threatened and even cried on the phone as i'm in so much trouble now without this money, but they keep reminding me contract is not with them!!! I don't particular want to withdraw servicses as she's a single parent of 3 and doing something for herself for a change.

MML, the contract is with parent, b ut i send invoices to the uni for payment (i've sent invoices upto end of the year). Uni authorises them and pays me. Contract is payment up front, both parent nad i have told them this and they've dsaid ok. but no bloody money.

Well in that case, its got nothing to do with the contract being with the parent, you send an invoice to the uni and therefore they should pay it. Did you send anything in writing stating that it was payment up front and has the deal worked ok up until now?

Right, then if the invoices are addressed to the Uni personally, its jack shit to do with your cm contract! I would seriously contact CAB, just so that you can get your rights absolutely right and listen to all the jargon they give you etc. Then phone the uni armed with all the right info. I would suggest, not putting the phone down today, until you have cast iron guarantees of a payment. Oh I think I would also be tempted to charge them your bank charges, since it was them that put you overdrawn. Ask the CAB what they think.
