My husband is owed a considerable sum (£5,000) in unpaid wages. He has a Court Order to enforce a Tribunal award of £6,000 which was given in January this year. His previous employer (Kingsgate and Kenver Nursery in Broadstairs) would not pay,first his wages, and now the award even though she has just managed to aquire a £683,000 remortgage on her house and nursery.
She has paid about £1150 of the original award but has an order to pay £50 a week which she is not bothering to comply with as I think she realises almost nothing can be done about it.
My question is, has anyone any ideas how to recover this money? He worked hard for it and had to spend £500 on solicitors to take her to Tribunal. She is just making a mockery of the law.
We have considered bailiffs warrant but this has been tried by others and they come away with nothing as everything seems to be a "tool of the trade"
Meanwhile she is expanding her business at her employees and ex employees' expense.
We are considering making her bankrupt but I believe she has the money and anyway it will cost us money we can ill afford.
Can My husband sell this debt?
I am very angry and frustrated at the impotence of the law in dealing with this woman.
Any help or advice greatly appreciated.
