  1. Hi Angels, No worries about hijacking this thread. All help is relevant. Someone may come along and respond to your question in due course. bf x
  2. Hi Robman, I am going through a similar situation as you. You could get in contact with ACAS who will initiate early conciliation before you might have to start Employment Tribunal proceedings. Read up on these articles below. http://www.acas.org.uk/index.aspx?articleid=5353 http://www.acas.org.uk/index.aspx?articleid=1670 http://www.acas.org.uk/index.aspx?articleid=2179 But you must raise a grievance before you follow the above two steps. If raising the grievance doesn't work then ACAS will start the early conciliation steps. This will involve liaising with
  3. Emmzi, Thank you for the above link but however, the link doesn't work? it is saying page can't be found. Have you got the correct address? bf x
  4. When I said 'hundreds and hundreds of pages' I didn't actually mean that literally. Even though I have to produce a small bundle which is still quite significant in terms of costs by printing them all out on my home computer, this will still all add up in respect of using paper and ink etc. When you are not working this makes a huge difference. Given it was the employer who put me in this situation, all I wanted to ask was there anyway I could keep the costs down. To be honest, I think all the documents I need to produce are relevant because it will demonstrate to the tribunal

  6. Emmzi, Funnily enough, this is what I have been doing the whole weekend. For the moment I have been organising my bundle into document folders and saving them to docs. The problem will be is when it is time to print them all. I have hundreds and hundreds of pages which will cost me a small fortune in ink and paper. I have time sheets, wage slips, email exchanges etc and everything else that goes with the claim. There is a lot of paperwork. Do I honestly have to print every single sheet to take to the tribunal? Given my employer didn't pay me for the month of July and
  7. Sangie, Thank you for taking the time to type what you have posted above. I totally understand where you are coming from with everything you have said. I just decided to jump in with two feet in my defence when I previously posted. I have just replied to Emmzi explaining why. I did not mean for my post to be directed solely against her and I apologised if she thought that. I value her advice and all the other advice I have been given from other posters.. I don't think I am angry with the world. I am only angry with my ex employer because he feels he can get away with what
  8. Emmzi, I have just this minute logged on and seen your above reply. I just wanted to clarify that I wasn't really directing my frustration at you. It is the employer and the circumstances that I am in that I am angry with. I do appreciate all the valuable advice you are giving me and I do respect that you have more knowledge than me in regards to employment law. I was only just trying to demonstrate that I have all the relevant documentation to show the facts of my case. I think I was just upset when you said it was all hearsay. However, I understand that I have to wait until th
  9. Just received an email notification from the tribunal service -date set for December 2017. bf x
  10. Emmzzi, I am very sorry but I have to disagree with your above comment. I am not quite sure how you can say that it is 'currently hearsay' and it is 'not fact' until my case has been to court. Are we on the same page because you obviously have not read this whole thread properly. 1.It is fact that my previous employer did not pay me statutory holiday or provide me with statutory annual leave as quite clearly shown on all my wage slips and my bank account. 2. It is fact that he also did not pay me one weeks wages as shown on my bank account. 3. It is fact that the taxi
  11. I forgot to ask and this might be a silly question. Does anyone know what happens when the council files a complaint and then 'adds it to the taxi operators file?' (in bold above) Do they just sit on it and do absolutely nothing or do they carry out some sort of investigation? I just don't know what else I can do to demonstrate to the council to get them to act on these complaints. And what do they deem serious enough for the council to even do anything? I would say that these (in my eyes anyway) were serious in that, the taxi company (to name but a few) did not provide statut
  12. Thank you for your reply Beau. I haven't heard of this association before. Unfortunately, I would not be able to seek advice from the National Taxi Association as they have a strict policy to only give advice or any legal advice to fully paid up members. The membership fee to join is £36 per year. However, after reading on their site, I am not even quite sure if they can help me in terms of being a previous employee or worker for a taxi company.. It also says on their website that if you are not a member do not call them if seeking legal advice. Sadly, they have said t
  13. The last part in bold is so true. Although I know that the only way I can get any type of recompense is through the courts/ET for the harm and mistreatment I have had to suffer from my ex employer it hasn't been easy trying to find other ways to report him for his unscrupulous behaviour. It is shocking that there are no other regulators or authorities to report him to. I have maxed out on Google trying to find something. However as mentioned in my previous post, I have reported them to their borough council who issues their operators licence. I have told them everything as the other
  14. Hi, I think this may be the case(pardon the pun). I have just recently submitted my claim to an employment tribunal too and I have also just amended my claim via email. In both cases I received emails from them acknowledging my claim. I presume once you have submitted then you will receive notifications via email from the tribunal service relating to your claim. As opposed to snail mail..or they may still send you hard copies as well. I guess I will also receive an email informing me of when the prelim hearing will be at some point...I personally do prefer email as it's so much
  15. Hi, Whilst I am patiently waiting for the tribunal date to come through.. I really need to ask someone who may know who I can report my previous employer to. As they are getting away with underhanded business activities/practises with near impunity.(a Taxi company) There must be some authority out there who I can report them to as they are now withholding my wage slip and one weeks wages. I think I have exhausted all avenues about this as I have contacted ACAS (for my non payments for statutory holiday pay and automatic unfair dismissal claims). I have also received advice
