Hello, need so advise desperately.

We were called in for a salon meeting and were told that the salon was going to be closing due to it not making enough money and we hadn't been paid. Our employer was very nice and said she was happy for us to take our clients details.

A few days later she decided she wanted to keep the salon open (still hasn't paid us and couldn't tell us when this would be) in the mean time myself and a few of the other girls had made plans for our own careers and sorted out new jobs.

Another meeting on Sunday night told us that the only way the salon could stay open was if we were to rent rooms off her. You can imagine by now we are all quite cross and confused so a couple of us gave in our notices and we were told that is was ok to NOT work during our notice, she would still pay us (eventually) and we could tell clients.

6am this morning we received a text saying we would now have to work our notice and to be in for 9am. She is hoping to sell the salon and if not it will be going into liquidation.

Any advise on the situation here would be much appreciated. Could we now all get in trouble for telling our regular clients when we were originally told we basically didn't have a job anymore.

Please help!!x
 
Leave. Run don't walk. When it goes into liquidation put in a claim for your backdated wages to the solicitor (it should be listed in the local paper). You've handed in your notice, she agreed you don't have to work in the meantime so that's that.

Run like the wind. And make sure you take everything belonging to you with you. If you gave notice and she's saying you don't need to work notice then tough titty.
 
Thanks ladies. Just majorly panicking about the situation, you've made me a lot more chilled out already x
 
Yeah get out of there. She hasn't got a leg to stand on. Her inconsistency isn't your problem.
 
Agree with above . Take anything that is yours from the salon and leave immediately.
PamieD above gives good advice although I doubt you'll get your wages in the end.
Good luck !
