Just a quick post to let Home Support Workers know that 821 out of 994 settlement agreements (83%) have now been returned by A4ES clients in North Lanarkshire.
I will let readers know when the paperwork has been checked, countersigned and passed over to North Lanarkshire Council for payment, but this is being done as quickly as possible for obvious reasons.
So watch this space.
North Lanarkshire Update (23/11/16)
Good news to report regarding the back pay due to Home Support workers in North Lanarkshire Council.
Because well over half of the settlement letter have now been returned to Action 4 Equality Scotland and HBJ Gateley, after just a few days
The next step is for all the completed forms to be checked and countersigned before being passed over to NLC for payment.
I understand the Council has agreed to process the completed paperwork and pay Home Support Workers what they are entitled to as quickly as possible.
So fingers crossed and let's hope that the long-waited monies are paid into people's bank accounts within a matter of days.
