  2. He does not want to be reinstated but the fact that they knowly dismissed him on evidence they concocted and also submitted tampered evidence in court, he would like to see justice done.
  3. ok, thank you but is there anything else we can do as this evidence was actually shown in court even though he won the court case.
  4. He only won his court case, he did not win his unfair dismissal case and has not managed to obtain a job since that time as his employers have been giving him unfavourable references. They are currently being investigated by the ICO.
  5. My fiance was dismissed from work for gross misconduct in April 2008 after he was accused of spitting on another bus driver. His employers were adamant that he did it and showed CCTV footage from the two buses although they did not show anything and dismissed him. He appealed and loss. He then went to Tribunal but due to the lack of a Solicitor who had knowledge of Employment Law he also lost. He went to court and it was found that there was no spit on the driver and he won his court case. (His court case lasted a whole year by the way). We were convinced that his employers tampered with the
  6. Hmmm....it sounds like it. He did not really want to leave the company but as he felt he was being treated so badly, he could not take anymore. Is this a case for Constructive Dismissal?
  7. He was not aware of his demotion and did not receive a new contract of employment and nothing was discussed with him upon his reinstatement.
  8. A friend of mine had problems with his employers where he worked as a Security Guard. He was initially working as a Security Guard in a retail store when he was suspended without pay in September 2010 for; 'Intimidation and harassment of a colleague', ‘Conduct in a manner likely to bring discredit to the organisation, customer or a fellow employee’.‘Not maintaining agreed standards of appearance and department whilst at work‘ 'Persistent breaches of company procedure’ After investigation the allegations proved unfounded and he was re-instated. He was then promoted to
  9. My partner has been experiencing problems with Abbey National now Santander. A few years ago his sister opened an account with them and took out a mortgage to which he added his name to the mortgage documents. He would then transfer money from his own account to his sister's account in order to cover the mortgage payments. After experiencing problems with the bank as they would try and take the mortgage payments on the dates which she did not agree to causing her to go overdrawn then charging her, she decided to switch mortgage companies and banks. My partner then went to open an account wi
  10. My father received a letter from a company called Metro Parking, whom I have never heard of, when he parked near the back of New Cross Bus Garage. He said he was not blocking any entrances or on any lines. This was in July 2010. However today, he received a letter stating that he 'inconvenienced drivers' therefore he had to pay a fine of £125. The letter states that 14 days had already passed in which he could pay the reduced rate of £75 and he now had to pay the higher rate. My father never received a parking charge and was not blocking any vehicles so was very surprised to recieve this lett
  11. My father wants to release some equity from his house which is now mortgage free. He does not wish to obtain another mortgage as he is now retired and may not be able to repay it and does not wish to sell the house as it is fully occupied and my parents have no desire to move. Is there anyway he can release the equity without loosing a large chunk of money from his home and without taking a mortgage. The house is worth around £450,000 at the last valuation. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  12. It is not really me entertaining them but as it is my father who is elderly and he will not ignore them like I would have.
  13. My father parked in a retail park and left to attend the bank when he returned he went to the shop on the retail park to purchase and item. When he returned to his car he found a parking ticket which stated that ‘Parking Attendant No: 01609 had reasonable cause to believe that the following contravention of the parking regulations had occurred: Vehicle owner/driver left site The ticket stated £90 payable or £50 if paid within 14 days. I wrote back to them and asked them for evidence of my father being the driver and also requested the PNC Contravention Code which
  14. I currently have a Vanquis Card which was fine until I lost my job. My limit was £250 but as I am no longer working, I have requested to freeze my account and activate my Payment Option Plan. However when I received the documents it states Redundancy and other circumstances which I not what I understood to mean when I originally took it out. I was paying around £3.87 per month but now it appears that I am unable to activate it as I was not made redundant. My contract could not be renewed due to the government placing a freeze on civil service recruitment. Is there anything I can do?
