  1. I have already said I'm happy to have to discuss the issue with the complainant and our line manager, this has been offered to the complainant but it has been refused out of hand so i feel there is nothing more i can do until i have my meeting now.
  2. I'm doing my best but this is effecting my private life and making my partner ill also and is all so very unnecessary. I really do hope the company get to grips with it soon and take action once i have been cleared.
  3. I am happy to apologise for what i said but not what they claim i said as i did not say it. I was also spoken to badly by the complainant minutes before the alleged incident and this has been ignored by the company so far. Personally i feel an apology from me to the complainant and from the complainant to me should suffice and the 2 others who have started the rumours and provided the false evidence should face action for this.
  4. Many thanks for the above advice, I have now got a written statement from 1 staff member present confirming that a) the person who claims to be there was not and b) i did not say what was alledged. I also have a audio recording from the other person who was there of his meeting which they have not provided to me again confirming that a) the person who claims to be there was not and b) i did not say what was alledged. I find it very worrying that they have failed to provide me with the minutes from a staff member who completely backs my verson of events and have decided to proceed to disciplinary based on a statement from someone who they have already been informed was not there by myself and 1 other staff member.
  5. While I do hope that is the case it is very concerning that I am having a disciplinary where I have been informed it could be classed as gross misconduct and the investigation hasnt gone as far as speaking to the staff present. I have now got a statement from a staff member who was present and hr have accepted a scanned copy of this to be added as evidence.
  6. I have requested the statements from HR from everyone that was present and have been told that they do not exist as some staff have asked not to be involved apparently . That is what I find so strange although there is part of the minutes where the complainant asks someone who was present if he heard anything and his reply was no and the person he was with who wasnt present then verbally informs him that I said what was alledged.
  7. Yes that is correct. However someone who was not there claims to have been and it is his statement being used as proof of the offense.
  8. Hi All I have been called for a disciplinary for alleged racism (completely untrue) and have a few questions. 1.) At my investigative meeting i was simply asked to explain events of day of incident which i did, was then asked if i said something which i said i did not. I was never shown any evidence at all. Today i have received a letter saying its going to disciplinary and shown original complaint and a statement from someone who wasn't present at the time along with my minutes and minutes of complainant. No evidence at all from people who were there at the time of incident. How would this stand as its hear say except for the one statement from someone who wasn't there but is now claiming to be. 2.) How do i obtain evidence from staff who were present when I'm not allowed to speak to them about it and HR are refusing to do so on my behalf. If everyone that was present have refused to give evidence then how can my employer proceed with a disciplinary. 3.) Work are not suspending me and are expecting me to work with the people who have clubbed together to put in this complaint. However they are claiming that what i have done could amount to Gross Misconduct and could lead to dismissal which don't appear to go together, surely if its as serious as they allege i would be suspended? The person who was the accusation was moved so we didn't work together at first but that appears to have stopped now and we are again expected to work together. Majik
  9. I work in the security industry in a retail environment. We spend all day walking around same as cleaners, they have been provided new boots and security have not, I am not aware of any changes to our risk assessments so if we previously needed them then I believe we still need them, or we need risk assessments redone to clarify this issue.
  10. If by non contractual you mean not specifically mentioned in my contract then yes it is non contractual. However the contract i currently have does not mention what uniform we receive it just states that it will be replaced yearly so my opinion is that as safety boots were part of my uniform provided to me by the old company surely the new company should also provide them. I will check the risk assessments for site when i return to work. In relation to the "promotion" this is a job i have been doing for 6 months on the agreement that it would lead to a promotion and rise which i have had countless meetings about and the job description and rate of pay were all agreed last month and was meant to start this month however now a manager high up has allegedly said that due to the problems i have caused being the spokesman for the grievance that i should not be promoted. With regards to following the company line i have no issues with doing this but want to provide my colleagues with answers to the grievance we have raised and am constantly being told differing stories from different managers, all i want is an answer i can give to the workforce to answer the queries raised.
  11. Hi all After some advice reference TUPE. Got TUPE'd over 6 months ago and still waiting for new uniform, new company have now decided not to supply safety boots as the previous company did. No mention of being given boots by old company on contract but just wanted to check if its covered under TUPE e.g. old company supplied them so should new company? Also was meant to be getting a promotion as have been doing someone else's job since new company took over now they are dragging there heels over promotion as I have been nominated as spokesman for group grievance due to new company making a lot of mistakes and upsetting and annoying a lot of the staff. Pretty sure they can't stop me from being promoted due to me trying to help staff with a grievance but again just want confirmation. Any help or guidance would be great I have heard unofficially that one of the bosses is in on Monday to discuss the above with me.
  12. "Where a death occurs of an immediate or extremely close family member, you will be granted paid leave of up to 5 days. This can be extended as either paid or unpaid at the discretion of your manager. In respect of the death of a close but not immediate family member you will be granted up to 1 day's compassionate leave either at time of death or for funereal"
  13. They have said i can have 1 day (for funeral) but handbook says up to 5 so had to use holiday entitlement for 2 days too as it was sudden. Boss is just very arsey and threatening in remarks back e.g. HR dont know what there doing, Consider yourself lucky you have a day etc which considering what has happened etc isnt really very nice. Its also very confusing being told 1 thing by HR and another by Team Leader.
  14. Hi Im having an issue with work in relation to my Mother In Law passing away 2 weeks ago. I was advised by HR that i was entitled to 5 days compassionate leave and that i needed to speak to my team leader to authorise it. My team leader wasnt in so i spoke to the other teams Team Leader who had a go at me for speaking to HR and then said that HR dont know what they are talking about and are only there for the bosses benefit. Im so confused about what im meant to do, do i put in a Grieveance about my Team Leader for not following the Handbook and risk losing my job or do i just accept that whats written in the handbook is wrong unless your boss agrees with it?
  15. If you do not contact your Building Insurance regarding the likely claim you may prejudice both your Zurich Warranty claim and your Building Insurance if you undertake works yourself. Ok, from reading the above nowhere does it say you have to contact them before they will proceed or does it even state you HAVE to make a claim on your building insurance. It states you need to INFORM them of a LIKELY claim. You will not know what you are claiming for until after ZURICH have complated their work.
  16. Ask them to point out where in their contract it states this and if they are unable to show you tell them you will again pass it to FOS as they are now deliberatley delaying the repairs and this is causing further damage and is something you will be pursuing Zurich for seperately.
  17. This is something the Developer should have informed Zurich of and Zurich should have been involved with and should have inspected to confirm it was made good.
  18. Tell them that as Zurich has passed the "CLAIM" to CL there is obviously a claim. Inform them that they are to fix "x" and that any other problems will be dealt with by you as you see fit as its not under their policy. They cannot tell you to claim through other insurances thay can only advise that you are not covered through their policy.
  19. As shown above, however i would strongly advise you to use your legal cover on either contents or building insurance as they will be able to get this solved much quicker than you caould achieve yourself.
  20. Yes im sure you can but this could prove very expensive and tiem consuming, If you have legal cover you expenses are covered up to usually £25,000 or £50,000 and Zurich are more likely to settle quicker if they are recieveing letters from another solicitor than from yourself. Please bear in mind that the Zurich Guarantee no longer exsists and Zurich only have 2 people who deal with this scheme, all they do is confirm whether or not you have a claim, once that has been confirmed all claims are farmed out to CL. Zurich have no further involvement after this.
  21. The developer would only be liable if this problem exsisted before Zurich's start date, This is for ZURICH to prove and not you so it is not your battle. If/When Zurich prove it is the developers liability Zurich would therefore have the proof of this.
  22. They will they are absolute rubbish, they did absolutly nothing with my claim so i went back to the developer and they are rectifying thr fauls. What exactly are the problems your experiancing ? Has Zurich's refusal to correct the fault caused more damge ?
  23. Would agree with this but not for the reason they want. I would suggest you speak to you insurers and ask if you have legal cover and if so does it cover breach of contract (Most do) and let them take care of it. If Zurich have agreed that their cover was from Aug 2001 to Aug 2009 and the damage occured during this time frame then they are bang to rights.
  24. So who informed Zurich that you bought the place and when did the re-issue the certificate. My guess would be your solicitor or the developer, either way Zurich knew when you bought the place and issued a certificate as an acknowledgement of this.
  25. The developer didnt put your name on it, i would imagine Zurich did when they issued it. Surely that would be your proof combined with when the mortgage started as the developer/Zurich would not have had your details until you had completed.
