Panicking Slater & Gordon staff have told RollOnFriday they have not been paid today. "This could be the end", said one.
Hopefully not quite yet. A Slater & Gordon spokeswoman patiently explained to RoF that staff usually receive their salary on the morning of the 25th. Because it's a bank holiday this year, they are being paid today, a day early - but in the afternoon. Everyone will, apparently, have been paid by midnight tonight.

Good news then? Not really. Staff may be getting paid, but they're clearly very worried. It doesn't speak particularly well of the state of the firm that its employees are crapping themselves when their paycheque is more than an hour late. With recent lay-offs, probes into the business, a plummeting share price and huge losses, the days when their biggest problem was a cuckolded husband emailing the entire firm must seem a long time ago.
At least the S&G social media team is keeping at it.
