Holiday Pay -Not paid out after ceasing employment

    Hi Everyone,

    I started a job last year in June (2020) which I quit recently (May 2021) because I am starting a new job next week. I was working part-time (20 hours per week).

    Before I quit, I gave my one week's notice. My last week's pay was supposed to come in on the Friday of the following week.

    I did not take any paid holidays since I started this job. I sent a text to the owner/manager reminding him to account for my holiday pay when he processes my last pay. However, I checked my bank account and I have only been paid for the hours I worked in my last week. No holiday pay, nothing. He did not reply to my text. I implied that he got the message and will process the holiday pay. Btw, I never got payslips, only when I emphasized and requested for some paper work, etc

    My questions are: Can he legally forfeit my holiday pay and get away with it?
    What can I do in this situation? What are my legal options?

    Anyone else been in the same situation?

    Thanks for reading.
