I’m sorry you’re going through this Elle. I would contact ACAS for advice. Do you have any evidence you worked there? Contract? Letters? Uniform? Either way I would suggest it’s worth a discussion. Working cash in hand is a risky one because you’re not always covered by the same employment rights however pregnancy discrimination is against the law and you might be able to argue something if you have any evidence. In terms of housing as a single parent with a new baby you’ll be classed as high priority through your local council…few people have also mentioned Under One Roof which I’ve heard good things about in the St Helens/Warrington area x
@Elle girl that’s so ILLEGAL!!!!! GET YO MONEY & CALL HR.
@Alison I wasn’t entitled to anything bc they weren’t paying me through the books it was cash in hand
@Jay I can’t. As there is no room in my family home, and I don’t get on with my family.
@Alison thank you so much I’ve just applied on Under 1 roof so hopefully bit of luck will come my way x
