need a speedy answer if poss guys/gals, my Xmas Do attendance depends on it
do i have a right to refuse a cheque as a method of payment?
as I stated in another thread, my ex-employer owes me upwards of £400 in "final monies". Now I have attempted to make contact three times this week, but it turned out he had gone on holiday (now it all clicks in why he wanted to delay my appeal meeting). I finally got hold of him today, and eventually he said he had sent a cheque in the post this morning. Now this is no good for me, as I won't receive it until either tomorrow or saturday at the absolute earliest, and as I stated in the other thread I need the funds cleared by monday at the latest as I have bills coming out and no money to pay them
so am I within my legal rights to refuse a cheque as a method of payment and to collect the cash in person tomorrow? Obviously the money must be there for him to write me a cheque!
Supermarkets shops etc can refuse to accept cheques (indeed any method of payment should they wish) so can I as an individual?
