  5. Heloo- I am employed by an agency , who I work for , 40 hrs week. ( Have done for over two yrs ) They contract me to another company . I see on my wages receipt they are deducting Employers NIC ( £49.77 a week ) are they having a giraffe ? This was pointed out to me by my partner . Q
  6. Cheers fr all the replies - I am of the view it was cracking down on a ( potential ) whistle blower and certainly under employment law as my contract at work is written -this is unfair dismissal ( confirmed by our HR bod ) the issue is gathering evidence and setting a case , Kx

  14. Hi Andy, I did this as it was to assist until the company saws were replaced , and as you would imagine - there is just as much chance of the saw been stolen from home as would be at work - no ?? The company must provide our tools but it aint happening anytime that day of the theft ! Cheers Q
  15. Hi , bit of a general enquiry - not sure where it fits really. Our tree company has been broken into and the chainsaws stolen for the THIRD time ! ( In 6 months ) On the second instance - I brought in my own saw to help out as replacements are not easily found on Day1 of a theft . All the tools were locked in a steel bin and lo and behold after coming back from holiday I discovered we had been burgled again ! - My saw had also gone from the locked bin. Now asking the manager would he be replacing my saw , he said no - as he said they are not covered for perso
  16. A small technical point here - ask for the certification or calibration certificate of the instrument that clocked yr ( Alleged ) speed -if the instrument had not been calibrated recently it may exceed the 3% accuracy required of test instruments and may sway the charge if it is found inaccurate . I would always ask for this as any instrument used in test or legal proceedings must be calibrated or tested frequently Q
  17. Indeed I am - just astonished at the premium charged and their sly manner Q
  18. Seriously boiling mad - I have had RAC breakdown insurance for last 4 yrs . On auto renewal direct debit . Just discovered after checking my bank online they have taken out £113 ( Last years renewal was £85 ) with no letter sent to state new premium - straight on phone to wait 20 minutes for call center . I have used their service about twice in 4yrs . Demanded a full refund for the absolute cheek of them , got offered a check in the post . ( Firstly in was a £16 refund ) Now waiting for their Complaints section to contact me for a direct transfer as i

  20. Well- I feel it is a bit poor practise , and am not going forward with their request - they can stump up or not - In other news I was assaulted at work by a work colleague , so now things are getting ever interesting and I'm sure I will be spending more time on this site !!
  21. Cheers Guys !! Yup sliding scale of repayment ( 18 months ) I qualified as Arboricultural Technician two yrs ago out of my own pocket, at abt £3500 quids worth ! An am already a highly skilled tree feller who has done loads of big tree / hazard tree felling so this course is basically paper-accreditation not career advancement . I just feel that if anything untoward happend ( Like a serious illness ) I'd be lumped with this repayment on a course I haven't realy needed .
  22. Hi Folks - Have been entered for an advanced tree felling course at my place of work , but my employer says if I leave in a certain period - I have to pay back the course . And wants me to sign a document to this effect . Provision and Use of Work Equipments Regs says otherwise I believe and there is nothing about this in my Works contract - yr thoughts ........ Q
