How long should should I wait to take them to to the small claims court and do I have a good case to win?
by isla at 15:42 26/04/16 (Letters from Freelancers)
The company project manager has signed my timesheets but the director has said he will not pay.

Hi there, thanks for your attention in this matter.

I worked for a large company on a services contract.
The company project manager has signed my timesheets. Iam owed 4.5k.
The company had problems with their end client and as i was unable to proceed with doing the work due to a lack of data therefore i submitted my notice.

The company Director has said i will not be paid anything as i have not produced anything.

I have worked the time trying to help them work through the problems with their end client, and forgone other income making opportunities.

The invoices were due payment on the 18th march and 1st April.

On the 11th April i sent a reminder email. On the 15th April i called the company Commercial manager has said iam owed something but he does not know how much. he asked me to send any evidence of email exchanges regarding activities i have done.

I sent a follow up reminder email after that conversation on the 15th April asking them to pay in full and gave them three days before i would apply interest charges.
I have had no reply's to all my emails, including the one where i gave notice in late march.

How long should should i wait to take them to to the small claims court and do i have a good case to win?

Many thanks
Isla

Background info
I secured a part-time ( initially 16hrs a month) contract i could fulfill remotely with the occassional visit to a office.

I logged all my time in a spread sheet- smallest unit of 10 minutes.

I was working on a 24 month contract where i provided project management services that would eventually result in a document deliverable. However my contract stated services.
