  1. Update folks. The company responded to our appeal and upheld the dismissal. They admitted that dismissal with immediate effect was not actually correct and have moved his dismissal date back by 4 weeks to try and correct that error and paid him 4 weeks in lieu.

No notes were taken and when i asked for a copy of the notes they should have recorded they cobbled together a 9 sentence document (spread over 3 A4 pages) as a supposed record of a 20 minute meeting. It takes 1 minute to read. My son was stunned as he had received no verbal warnings and thought things were ok. 2 da

  7. I have tried many times to find info on arrears administration fees charged by my building society. I have seen many posts asking if these charges can be reclaimed. Well they CAN so go for it. The woolwich (owned by Barclays) have just caved in and are knocking £3600 of arrears charges imposed over the last 6 years.
