Hello,

Thank You for the feedback everyone, I have not sent this yet and have also read all the suggestions / comments. Yes to a point i agree with both of you, like said earlier I know my ex-company will not clear the dues until call to further action is added. However I would not want to create any legal problems for myself at this time.

I will try to talk with a legal counsel first (lets hope they don't cost more than what the company owes me) :-P

if the price is too high, I will just file a claim at TADM.

Will keep you posted as things progress.

A letter of demand will be a couple hundred bucks from a solicitor. A lot less than screwing it up or ending up with a trumped up charge of attempted extortion.

Drop the company an email with the shortfall of salary tabulate month by month what they owe you. In addition, cc MOM the email that you send to the company.
