  1. Yes the amended ts was signed and authorised, under duress. I gave my agency a statement of hours worked and not paid for. I wrote a 2000 word letter to the principal giving him all the details and thats it. I have an email from my kine manager saying that the timesheets weren't filled in properly but is it enough. College HR are like the Gestapo
  2. Hi Andy the sitaution is that I was an agency temp. I was given a timetable but had to work extra hours. I claimed the extra hours and was told that I would not be paid for them so I should revise my time sheet. I did, under duress. Then I worked some hours at home and put in a time sheet for them. This was ignored until I went to court. Now they have agreed to the hours I put in for but I want all the hours I have worked. Especially now I have had to go to court. I think they will threaten certain members of staff to say that I didn't work the hours I am claiming and Idon't know if an affidavit will do the trick or not.
  3. Thanks Andy my contract as an agency worker says that the agency will not pay if there are no authorised time sheets but will carry out a timely investigation into it. They think they have done this. They have reached an agreement with the college to pay me £85 in lieu of the £372 I claimed. I still don't know how to prove to the court that I worked the hours i say I worked but I will not agree to that pittance.
  4. Thanks for your reply. The first time sheet was returned to me so that I could amend it on the grounds that the college wouldn't pay me for work I had done that wasn't on the timetable. I had to submit an amended time sheet or go without. The second timesheet was sent by email and they never respond to it.
  5. Thanks for your reply. I thought this might be the case. I am a teacher and I worked for an agency (the defendant) and a college (the second defendant) The second defendant did not allow me hours for work done and did not complete my final timesheet so I couldn't get paid. The agency did ask for timesheets but the college neglected to respond. The college has filed a part admission, which I haven't seen but I guess the amount to be a lot less than I am due. The agency defence is that they cannot pay me because they did not have authorised timesheets. I wrote to the principal before I went to court and he passed it on to his HR Director and she passed it on to the person who wouldn't pay me in the first place and they said they were investigating it. How can I prove that I actually worked those hours? I am worried that I will not get the pay I am entitled to. Any suggestions there? Thanks again.
  6. I am the claimant. I issued a claim and the defendant did not acknowledge service or send a defence within the time limits. I was going to ask for judgement in default but I had some problems at home and had to sort them out first. Now the defendant has sent in a defence; it is some three weeks late. Am I too late to request judgement in default now? Thank you
  7. I need to know how to strike out a late defence. Thanks.
  8. Please can you direct me there? Thank you
  9. That is a really sad story. My son has just started uni in York, we live in London, and if a thing like this had happened my empty nest syndrome would have been even worse. I would probably fight the cause especially as you live outside of London but Old CodJA will be able to advise you better than I can. I don't know why the fine is £60, seems a bit strange, I thought it was £25. I really hope it works out well for your daughter. Best wishes Jackie
  10. I must second that. I thought that I communicated well but your letter is A1. Jackie
  11. Hi there have you got your own travel card for the same time as they stopped you? That may be a good piece of evidence to back up your defence. Best of luck Jackie
  12. Hi Old-CodJA I just wanted to let you know that I had a letter today to say that I would not have to pay the penalty fare. Thank you for your support and common sense advice and thank you on behalf of everyone who you support on this forum. You're a real help Best wishes Jackie
  13. I was going to help you to compose a letter to appeal against the decision but can't find time as it has to be in so quickly. Ask at a Law centre; they don't charge. In the meantime write a short letter to boss saying that you Dear Bloggs Further to our meeting of (date) I do not agree with the allegations outlined or the decisions made therein. In fact I believe this meeting to be the conclusion of an unfair dismissal. I intend to appeal and I am seeking legal advice to support my appeal. I undertake to contact you within 30 days of the date hereof or as soon as I have received advice. Thank you in anticipation of your patience in this matter Yours sincerely Hubbies name Send this immediately (tomorrow?)by 1st class recorded delivery
