  1. Hi Uncle Bulgaria If the meeting had been on Wednesday or later. to allow me time to prepare for the meeting and to arrange for someone to accompany me, I would have been given a month's notice rather than a week's notice. I was therefore thinking of seeking as compensation the difference between a week's notice and a month's notice. Jeff
  2. Hi Ethel Thanks for your reply. I'm not sure that's correct. I believe that, even though I have no comeback if I get sacked within the first 2 years of employment (with a few exceptions, such as discrimination), I do have a right for correct procedure to be followed. There is actually a precedent - from https://www.questcover.com/news/failure-to-comply-with-the-right-of-accompaniment/: 'In Collins v ILC Manchester Ltd t/a International Learning College 2013, the employee was two months into his probationary period and was called into a meeting. The employee wanted
  3. I started in a new job on the 6th of January. On Friday afternoon last week, I had a chat with my company's MD, which raised concerns in her mind about my performance. As a result, she scheduled an early probationary review, scheduled for Monday morning this week. She informed me in the invitation letter which she sent on Friday afternoon that: - This was the only time that week that she was available. - I could be accompanied by a colleague or trade union representative. - If I was unable to attend, a decision could be made in my absence. On Monday morning
  4. Hi Stu As far as I know, my former flatmate gave the correct notice, but I am not privy to that information. My former flatmate and I each had separate, independent agreements with the landlord. It was not the case that my ex-flatmate and I co-signed an agreement. Jeff PS I forgot to say - thanks for converting the images into a PDF.
  5. Hi 45002 Sure, please find attached. Thanks Jeff Private Residential Tenancy Agreement.pdf
  6. I currently pay my landlord £450 a month to rent a room in his flat (and to have use of communal facilities), and I am out of my minimum term. Until April, I was sharing with a flatmate, who was paying £425 a month. My landlord never sought to find a replacement for my former flatmate after he left. My landlord has recently decided that he wants to rent out the entire flat to one person or couple for £900 a month, rather than renting out the other room for £450 a month. I have told him that I cannot £900 a month rent (and, that withstanding, I am happy to just rent out
  7. I live in Scotland, and I am considering moving address, to a House of Multiple Occupancy. Nichola Sturgeon has just announced that she will be extending the ban on visiting other households. Would this prevent me from viewing a room in another house, as a prospective tenant? Also, would the ban prevent me moving into another household? Thank you in advance. Jeff
  8. It doesn't seem to say, but they are charging me 17.65p kWh. Is that the deemed rate? Thanks Jeff
  9. Until March, I shared my flat with a flatmate who had a contract with EDF, and he and I had an agreement that we would split the electricity bill 50/50 (with me paying him my share, and him paying EDF). In March, my former flatmate had to leave due to CV19. I had an agreement with him that I would pay him the cost of the electricity between when he left and when EDF stopped billing him due to him having informed them that he'd left. My flatmate recently informed EDF that he had left the property, and they have billed me £400 for the period between when he left and when
  10. My employer offers employees a payment if someone applies to work for the company on their recommendation, and the person they referred to the company stays with the company for a qualifying period. A colleague referred two people, and with each of those referrals she was told that the person applying hadn't put her details on their application form, which is a requirement to claim the reward. She knows as a fact that that's incorrect, because she witnessed the second referred person putting her details on their application form. I recently referred a friend, who accepted a position
  11. It wasn't a tomlin order (I live in Scotland, and I think Tomlin orders are purely for England?). My ex-landlord and I reached an out of court agreement about a day before the court hearing, and we both emailed the court to advise that we had reached an out of court settlement and would not be proceeding. As a result, the claim was cancelled by the court. Thanks Jeff
