I'm in a bit of a pickle here and would like some help on my current situation. I recently commenced a work role as a 1st year apprentice chef in a small Cafe/Restaurant (10-5-15) but my employment there didn't last long at all, only a week. I had a nervous breakdown and didn't show up to my shift on Sunday (17-5-15) and I terminated my employment on the following Monday. But now the employer says I have forfeit all my previous 47 hours wages for missing the Sunday shift. Under employment law, is this true, or must I be paid for the hours I did work? I was working full time but no paper work was ever signed, whenever I asked to do it he always said "another time".
