  1. I need to sell quickly and look for a bungalow or park home as I was diagnosed with Osteo Arthritis around 4 years ago, and I am starting to struggle to get up and down stairs.And in may this year,I had a seizure, so don't want to risk another seizure whilst coming down stairs.
  2. I haven't instructed a solicitor yet as there have not been any offers on the house. I don't know if the estate agent who has my house up for sale would be able to give me the address of the 2 houses whose owners took HS2 to court.GDPR brerach I would guess. I could hang on until after the review to see if HS2 gets cancelled.Certainly there has not been any engineering or works of any kind in my area,other than cable laying last year.That's it,nothing else so far.
  3. I am just outside of the HS" zone for compulsory purchase. However,I put my house up for sale 4 weeks ago, and have had 2 viewers. Both said they like the house but the threat of HS2 having framework across the road put them off buying my house. I am aware that I can take HS2 to court and get the court judge to (hopefully),force HS2 to purchase my house at market value under the Blight Order. How do I go about starting the process?. Which court would the case go to?. Am i best enlisting a claims specialist with success in this field?. The estate agent who my house is on the market with has told me that they have the feedback documentation from the 2 viewers testifying that HS2 put them off buying my house, so they would be available to the court. Apparently there has already been 1 successful case on my street, and 1 two streets down, and there is another case on my street going through the court. Any help, laws,quotes etc would be greatly appreciated.
  4. Hi Stu007.The work colleague had no previous/existing faults when he took the policy out.Apparently,the company have tried [causing problems] a lot of customers like this. Many thanks to all for their input.The colleague has drafted a Notice Before Action to the company.he has also asked his card issuer to refund him under the Consumer Credit Act.They have asked for a copy of his contract. I will update as and when he gives me any more info.
  5. NOT SURE IF THIS IS THE CORRECT SECTION SO MODS.,PLEASE MOVE TO CORRECT SECTION IF NEEDED. A colleague at work paid a one off yearly fee of £183.48 to a company called 24/7 Home Rescue. This is for cover in the event of any breakdown on boiler, plumbing, drainage, electrical, Central Heating Systems, pest control etc. it is for anything to do with the home. The benefits include No charges for parts, No charges for labour, No call out fee, unlimited call outs, unlimited claims etc. Fast forward to 1 breakdown of a radiator being completely cold. A call was made to the company and an engineer was sent out, but not before a charge of £75.00 as a "Security Payment", according to the telephonist. The said fee was paid, and an engineer sent out to investigate. The fault was with a thermostat. The item was removed, and given to my work colleague. He was told that for it to be replaced, there would be a charge for the replacement part, even though the contract clearly states, NO CHARGES FOR PARTS. The colleague refused to pay for the part on the basis, his contract terms and the yearly fee paid. When he asked for the £75.00 "security payment" to be refunded, it was refused. I was asked if I can help out. My guess is that the company have broken their terms of the contract by charging a £75.00 "security payment" and then refusing to refund it, and also wanting a payment of £24.00 to replace the part. Surely the yearly premium of £183.48 covers what the terms of the contract states. Am I correct?. Also is this not a breach of the Misrepresentation Act 1967, by offering something then changing their mind/moving the goalposts to suit them?. Are there any other laws that apply that I have missed, and is there any governing body that can step in and intervene. Any help that I can give to the work colleague would be greatly appreciated.
  6. After all the investigation was done,the charge of Threatening Behaviour was abandoned, and the charge of Staff Disharmony was created instead. The charge of bringing the company into disrepute still stood, and I was disciplined for those 2 "Offences", to apepar before the Service Delivery Manager yesterday,(friday 27th July). As well a sseveral documents, from solicitors, police forces, and a case study, I went in with the Union top man and presented my case. The charge of bringing the company into disrepute was abandoned, due to what I produced, as well as using an excerpt from Witham V Club 24. The charge of Staff Disharmony i accepted.And walked out with a 6 month warning. So,to all those who thought they knew the law, and wanted to be judge and jury.You failed. It's not who you know, it's what you know.
  7. There are also plenty of cases where an employee has won a case of unfair dismissal at tribunal, and at an appeal by their employer as well.There ar eloads of cases in Selwyns Employment Law Book, which I have at my disposal.
  8. There are no bus companies based at Friar Lane.However,there are 3 companies who use Friar lane.TrentBarton,Yourbus(dunn motor traction), and Marshalls.
  9. Borisbeaver,the issue concerns a colleague/ colleagues, and was aimed at such, not at the employer.Nor was it concerning the employer. And as Bazooka Boo states, "people will always read far too much into it and will always make assumptions".That is exactly what someone has done.Misconstrued it entrely.
  10. So you are saying that warning a colleague that if he/she fails to legally record any defects on the defect card which is a legal document,that you will report them is bullying threatening behaviour??. If I had said,if.....etc etc,I will get someone to kill you, or set your house on fire, or beat you up on a dark night, then yes that is threatening behaviour, but warning someone of the consequences of not filling a defect card out properly is not threatening behaviour.Where is the threat in that?
  11. Borisbeaver,How can this be bringing the company into disrepute when it was my own personal opinion of 2 members of staff?.The company has not been mentioned, nor any of the management, nor any names,(although I did mention 2 cleaners). I have been looking at Witham v Club24,where an employee won her case against dismissal.
  12. I got into work today to be told that the company has received 2 complaints, and that they are suspending me on full pay whilst they are investigating the complaint. I think it all stems from a post I put on facebook.Here is the post:- So,a particular driver thinks my brother is talking all the time at Friar Lane does He?.Considering my brother cleans more buses than the other 2 cleaners,you are incorrect,and have failed to secure any brownie points.If you think you are clever being a grass, then read this......I am a bigger grass than you.You better be careful now, because I will be gunning after you.The slightest thing you do wrong, or fail to do, I will report you, and that includes failing to fill your defect card out correctly,or failing to record defects that I am aware of from previous days.BE WARNED,AND BE AFRAID. I can only guess that the 2 complaints are from the other 2 cleaners.any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  13. Here is what I looked up on Wikipedia..... The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679 is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA). It also addresses the export of personal data outside the EU and EEA areas. The GDPR aims primarily to give control to citizens and residents over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU.[1] Superseding the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC, the regulation contains provisions and requirements pertaining to the processing of personally identifiable information of individuals (formally called data subjects in the GDPR) inside the European Union, and applies to all enterprises, regardless of location, that are doing business with the European Economic Area. Business processes that handle personal data must be built with data protection by design and by default, meaning that personal data must be stored using pseudonymization or full anonymization, and use the highest-possible privacy settings by default, so that the data is not available publicly without explicit, informed consent, and cannot be used to identify a subject without additional information stored separately. No personal data may be processed unless it is done under a lawful basis specified by the regulation, or if the data controller or processor has received an unambiguous and individualized affirmation of consent from the data subject. The data subject has the right to revoke this consent at any time. Clearly a breach of GDPR.
  14. I think the taxi firm were sending a message out to the public..... ."Don;t get the bus, get a taxi"...… I too believe there is a breach of GDPR, but wanted to be absolutely certain, which is why i have posted on here for expert(hopefully) advice....... I am aware that the bus company are seeking tp pursue the assailant on the roof of the bus for damage to the roof of the 1 year old bus.
  15. Not sure if this is the correct forum,but it's the only 1 closest to my query, it involves an employee. Last week when England knocked out Colombia, there were fans congregating in a town center , blocking the road, and 2 buses were blocked in. Several dozen fans were converging on one of the buses which was immediately outside the pub., rocking it, opening the entrance doors via the outside emergency door button. The driver attempted 3 or 4 times to gently shove a few fans off. 1 fan actually got onto the roof and was jumping on the roof. A harrowing experience for the several passengers on board, some of whom were young women. All the time this was happening, someone was filming the incident. All of a sudden, the video clip is on Youtube. The driver concerned is angry that this video clip is on youtube , uploaded by a local taxi firm. The driver never gave his permission for the video clip to be uploaded or for the drivers face to be shown. The taxi firm did not ask the bus company if they could upload it either. Not only was it embarrassing for the driver at the time of the incident, but it was also a shock for him when he saw the video clip on Youtube, which has gone viral, and has had over 66,000 hits. The bus driver asked me if there is a breach of the Data Protection Act 2018, and/or a breach of the GDPR. As I am not clued up much on both, I cannot give a positive answer So, any help and advice would be greatly appreciated. I will print it off and give it to the employee.
