Employee Holding Pay

I am needing some answers regarding my salary. I have been working with a international company (BANK) for 6 years already & it was time for me to move on. I gave my company a 1 month notice 28/06/2016. As an international company there is compulsory leave every year where I am on leave for 10 business days for the company to audit my system & profile. When I gave my resignation letter I was given the option to have those compulsory leave added into my final pay or I could request for an earlier leave as I have not taken the compulsory leave for the year. I choose the latter option to leave early. 

Now what happen is that I gave them all the necessary notice & finalization of any work I had. On the end of the 2nd week I was given a last min notice that I still had to work for them & I complain to them that they give me the option to leave early but now they are retracting back their offer because of understaffed. I instead left 3 weeks after my notice. 

On the last day of my employment, again I was given a last min notice saying that I wont be getting my pay for the month as they need to add in together everything for a final pay (Salary is paid on 25th of every month). I was fine with that, but it have already been 2 months since my notice & I have still not receive any pay from them. I have already contacted the HR team throughout the last month & they keep giving me the same reason that is have been escalated to someone in charge. 

I am needing some advise on how to get my pay from them despite all the delay & reasons given by my EX-company.

Do I need to take legal action on this?
Is there anything I can do if the company still does not give me my final pay ?

Hi there

You should get a lawyer to issue a letter of demand to your employer. There is no excuse for them to be playing this 'game'.
