  1. thanks for your reply


    i was told in the meeting that if i disagree with the change then it will go to consultation and in basic terms we will be restructured and possibly be made redundant. so i feel i have little choice than to agree. i dont wish to find my self unemployed.


    my contract states my hours and salary, now obviously if i take a cut in hours the salary on my contract will be different than the one i will be earning.


    Should i not have written conformation of my new salary and the pay increase?


    i dont want to sign the letter my employer has sent me because i dont trust them to come up with the pay rise that they promised in the meeting.


    This letter that i am asked to sign is an amendment to my contract, so obviously i want this to be correct.




  2. hi there and thanks in advance for any help


    i work 37.5 hours per week and was called into a meeting last week regarding a change to my hours to 34.5 per week.

    i was also offered a 20 p per hour pay rise as a kind of softner to loosing these hours,


    Not a problem but asked if i could have there proposal in writing,


    Now today i have recieved a letter from my company saying that my hours will be changing to 34.5 hours but there is no mention of my new salary or the pay rise.due to the needs of the buisness blah blah etc.


    We were tuped over last august so oviously its just an amendment to my old contract but im not happy about them not mentioning my new salary or pay rise.


    I dont want to look like im being difficult regarding loosing my hours but surely if my hours are being cut i would need to know my new salary in writing before i agree to the changes, am i correct?

  3. hi there just a quick update.

    my partner went down to the garage and had a big moan about it, the owner at first was just aplologetic etc but in the end agreed to cutting the bill for the 4 tyres in half and also on my last mot i had an advisory which he has agreed to fixing free.


    He also give us a few extras de icer and some road maps so to be honest we were happy with that.


    Every thing has been logged with the garage just incase the guy who was driving my car was speeding.


    thanks everyone who replied.


    i will be using the garage again because mistakes do happen and we are only human.

  4. hi there

    just got home from work to find a message from garage regarding my car which is in to have 4 new tyres fitted.


    The garage owner gave my car to somone this morning thinking it was his courtesy car which is the same make as mine. it wont be back until 5pm tonight so tyres wont be fitted. and ill have no car for another day. having to borrow partners.


    Im not happy as you can imagine but not sure on what my next course of action is,


    My car is ony insured for myself and partner to drive also it has a very dangerous bald tyre hence why it was in to have new tyres fitted.


    Any advice would be greatly appreciated



  5. hi there


    i was off sick after major surgery last sept to jan 9th of this year.

    i have just recieved my pay slip and have not been paid for christmas week and the week from 9th to 13th ( our pay date is 15th to 15th of each month.


    i have recieved what looks like 4 weeks sick pay. there is nothing in my contract of employment regarding holiday pay during sick time.


    my pay slip is not very informative so im not really sure what i have been paid for.


    im back at work tomorrow and was wondering what my course of action might be. obviously im well short of money now and if my memory serves me rightly i will more than likely have to wait until next month for the rest of money they owe me. would this be correct or do they have to pay me asap?


    any help would be greatly appreciated



  6. hi there and thanks for your reply

    Im 47 and have worked for the company for over 12 years i was undiagnosed at that time.

  7. hi there


    could somone please help


    I work for a large company with a personal health insurance which basicly gives you 75% of your salary until retirement age if you have to go on long term sick.

    I cant find my contract but this benefit was in place on my appointment.


    I am a sufferer of ms which as you can appreciate this health insurace is a life line.


    As a cost saving exercise my company has now cut this PHI to pay out for only 5 years.


    I feel this is disadvantaging me ,would i have a course of action regarding this cut at work due to my disabilty.


    many thanks

  8. i relly feel for you and it really makes me angry that people have to steal off others, i really hope the police listen to you. make sure when you speak to them that some desk monkey does not fob you off by saying its a civil matter., its not ,it is theft and demand to speak to somone in authority.


    maybe you could send a letter before action to this persons address recorded delivery stating you want a full refund or you will be taking this matter to the police or taking legal action, its worth a shot.

  9. hi haddow


    have you tried asking on the ebay member help boards?


    i dont think you can really do much because you didnt buy from ebay auctions, your only course of action would be to contact the police. make sure you print off all correspondance from this person to show the police, but e bay will not be able to do anything



    hope you get a result.

  10. hi there. i know when i was pregnant my doctor signed me off work because i was running a busy bar.changing barrels etc and was finding it a real strain, i did claim incapacity benefit,

    so give it a go, see your doctor and see if he will sign you off. your obviously finding it hard being on your feet all day. also are there no other duties you can do at work?

    your work also should have done a risk assesment as soon as you informed them your pregnant,

    hope this helps alittle.

  11. just found this ,hope it helps.


    maybe you should have a chat to acas aswell.,just to clarify,


    Most adult workers have the following rights:

    • the right to a break where the working day is longer than six hours;
    • a guaranteed rest period of 11 hours every working day;
    • a guaranteed rest period of 24 hours once in every seven days;
    • a ceiling of 48 hours on the maximum average working week;
    • a ceiling on night work of an average of 8 hours in every 24;
    • a free health assessment for all night workers with a possibility to transfer to day work (where it is available) if working at night is damaging a worker's health; and
    • the right to four weeks annual leave.



    However, the law is unduly complicated and there are quiet a few variations.

    • The weekly limit on working time is an average. You can work more than 48 hours in a week as long as your average hours don’t exceed 48. The average is worked out in different ways for different groups of workers, and the workforce as a whole can agree to change the way it’s worked out.
    • You can sign an individual opt-out and lose the protection of the weekly limit, but you can reverse your opt out at any time and regain your rights. The notice period for this cannot be more than three months. There is no opt out from the 48 hour average weekly limit on nightwork or any of the other provisions.
