I started a new job 3 weeks ago, and I haven't been paid yet. I was assured payment would be made on Tuesday, but it still hasn't cleared in my account. It is casual work for a private individual whose responsibility it is to pay me (no company/HR dept involved). Payday is supposedly every fortnight. I have asked several times about my wages and just get met with vague responses. I was considering contacting my employer and informing them I am not comfortable working any further shifts until I receive my payment for hours worked.
What would you do?
