I joined my new employer about a month ago and when joining the new company offered to pay me an additional sum to cover what I lost for leaving my last job without notice. This money was due to be paid along with my first month's salary however I haven't received it. As the agreement to pay this money was only verbal between us what would be the best approach to getting this money paid?

    In additions to Neo's answer, get all mentions of promised payment sent to you in writing in the future. – C Henry Jun 18 '18 at 18:18

First, ask your manager. If your manager is unable to help, then talk with your companies HR department.

If those two courses of action are unsuccessful, you may want to look at legal action, although this will be tough as you do not have anything in writing to back up your claim.
