  1. thank you for the reply, i was employed by abc123xxx (UK) ltd, no - they are not saying I was employed by the IBC. The "mistake" I made was to put abc123xxx Ltd on the claim form. The same person is the sole director of the (UK) company and appears to be the director of the IBC company.and has used the error to delay the tribunal, I have to live with that for now, the judge has asked me to clarify if I want to join abc123xxx(uk) ltd as a respondent instead of abc123xxx ltd. So I am hoping thats a good sign. What it has done is draw my attention to the fact that he is saying there are 2 companies. I can find the UK one registered with companies house. I cannot find the IBC one, using companies house webcheck. So its the first part of your answer that interest me, I want to check the legitimate state of the IBC company and what rules they have to comply to in the UK regarding displaying their name etc.
  2. Apparantly, its with abc123xxx uk ltd. What i want to know is, does abc123xxx IBC have to show it that way or can it show it as abc123xxx. I appreciate its a bit misleading but I think it has been done that way on purpose.
  3. Sure, IBC is international business company, an offshore company, in this case, i thought i was working for abc123xxx ltd but i was working for abc123xxx uk ltd which is a subcontractor to 123xxx ltd IBC.
  4. I would just add that this relates to a tribunal where the respondent has said its been placed against the wrong company.
  5. Hi, this is in relation to the use of IBC in the UK. In the UK does an IBC have to display the IBC part in its name. I've searched the internet and cannot seem to get past the adverts for companies that set up IBCs. So if you had Joe Bloggs Limited that was an IBC registered in the Seychelles, in the UK, on applications forms,letterheads etc, does it have to display the IBC bit. Also if it puts its registered address as being in the UK, does this have to be registered at Companies House. thanks
  6. Yeah, I know what you are saying, I went from thinking "say nothing" to "say everything" to prove it is ongoing. My thinking is, at least this way, I can show I have been reasonable.
  7. I have a tribunal date in March with my former employer. He still has several days in which to reply to the ET claim. I received an email of him saying: "If you had done your homework this does not give you the option of a tribunal and your complaint has been cancelled by the tribunal services. Needless to say your mention of the tribunal is of course nonsense and is only included to try and cause me harm and to extort funds that you are not owed." He then goes on to list all his arguments and make a few more wild claims. Which is great in a way because as well as everything I did have prepared, I am now aware of other arguments or objections. I have had my letter of the tribunal saying the date etc, I have had a letter - this week - of ACAS stating their involvement followed up by a call from one of their conciliators, I confirmed with him that the case was still to be heard although I did not mention the email. I have emailed the employer saying I did not realise it had been cancelled and if it was not a true statement, he was free to admit that. No reply so far. So, assuming, the tribunal is going ahead, the employer has several days yet in which to put their response to the tribunal, I have given him opportunity to say it is a false statement. I do not know if he genuinely believes it or has used it as a tactic.When would I let the tribunal know, I think the taunting/insulting manner of the email works to my advantage but I do not want to let the ET know before he has had several days in which to consider his action. The fact that this would take us past the cut-off date for his response to the ET for the original claim is not my fault. Has anybody any experience of a similar event, they have been told by the respondent that the claim has been cancelled even though it has not.
  8. Thanks Emmzzi, feel a bit better now.
  9. The ET wording is a bit misleading, am I right in thinking I can still go to them even without a full years employment. I appreciate I cannot get unfair dismissal but will they still sort out payments owing.
  10. I walked into work (small company, 2 directors & 2 employees) last Monday (10/12/12) morning and after helping move some furniture under the impression that we were reshuffling the offices, my employer turned round and said the MOJ had taken their licences away to run claims and therefore there was no role for me and my services were no longer required, They were going to tell me on the Friday (7/12/12) before but they did not want to spoil my weekend. In a state of shock, I went home, then I remembered about having to claim benefits and proving that I did not leave the job of my own free will. So I went back and ask for a copy of what had been said in writing and something just to say it was not my fault. He said he would do that and we arranged a time for me to pick it up. Meanwhile, I got in touch with my colleague who had been on holiday (this is what they told me, I had been working in a different room for a bit but still surprised she had'nt said anything directly). They had sacked her 2 wees before with the same statement, they had lost their licence, they sent her a text to break the bad news. The 2 directors are a couple who lived together, nothing to do with the story - just background info. This made me quite upset, they had said to me they had just lost their licence. Surprise Surprise, when I went back to pick up the letter I asked for, there was nobody in, this happened a couple of times, because they live at the house where the offices are based, I called round early evening when I saw the lights on, the letter had not been done, I said I would come back in an hour and if it had not been done I would escalate it, I had been looking at ET's and citizens advice and starting to realise what I was entitled to. I should mention at this stage that I only started with the company in April 2012, even so, I still have some entitlements. When I returned, the letter had been left outside the house for me to pick up - this is what it said As a result of losing our MOJ licence to operate a claims management business we will be closing the business immediately. The ceasing to trade is a legal requirement and the continuation would be an offence. The company will be wound up in the new year and will cease to exist soon after. As a result your role will cease immediately and without any notice period. Your official last day was Friday the 7th December 2012. You have of course been in employment for over 12 months however this is simply for your information. Needless to say that this is not your fault and we apologise that this event has ocurred. Your final salary, holiday pay etc is being calculated by our book keepers and we will know shortly. Hopefully you are able to find other work soon. So not only did I not get notice but they backdated the last day to the Friday before the Monday they told me. They made the mistake of saying I had been in employment for over 12 months. I still have not received any pay.That night, the police came round, the directors had felt threatened by me, they had changed the ecalate part into write me a letter or else..... The police asked me to stay away, he was very nice about it, I showed him the letter and told him what had happened etc I wrote them a letter saying that they owed me 2 weeks worked (28/11/12 - 10/12/12), 1 week in liew of notice and 3 weeks holiday, I had not had any since I started. I gave them a date for payment, I have checked my bank and nothing has been paid. What is my next move, I can call round but risk going to the police station. Although I cannot claim unfair dismissal, can I still apply to the employment tribunal to settle payments. Do I go to a small claims court, would I ask for additional. You have to imagine worse case scenario with these people, my colleague asked them for wage slips after taking advice from CAB, They txtd her we have also taken advice and have been advised that no further correspondence is to be made. These guys are going to clam up at every opportunity. I would also add that the MOJ said they had not taken their licenc of them, but they had put a condition on it. So they lied about the reason, they lied about when they found out, they gave no notice and I have received no monies owing. Whats my next step? Thank you
  11. Hi, Im just about to apply for grant of probate on my mothers estate, the bank state there is a loan and credit card debt of about 3,500 with no insurance to cover them. Should i ask for a cca? Can I ask for a cca? Would the normal rules apply? Thank you for any assistance.
  12. yes i think your right with the cab, i feel more confident about pushing them to find out more. Thanks
  13. My nephew's dad died 18mnths ago, a homeless alcoholic. A tradegy that refused all help. The other day my sister had a visit from DWP officers. Did she know where her son (my nephew) was and how much contact had he had whith his father prior to his death. No she didnt know where he was and he had no contact with his father. Bearing in mind he was either suffering from alcohol induced madness or madness induced alcoholism, he would'nt have recognised his son. Turns out there are several properties in his fathers name that are being let out (no idea on the details of location, multiple lets etc), and they're looking to see who had involvement with him before he died. Nobody in our family has any idea about this, and we know because of the state he was in that he probably didnt either. We do have an idea of who would use his name - but that is only guessing. So, what are the implications, we've ranged it from the positive, hey if these properties are in his fathers name and he's his next of kin, shouldnt they go to him to the what if theres loads of tax owing on this and if my nephew does anything he will get footed with the bill. Theres not a lot here, but thats all we have at the moment. Any body got any ideas, any forums to approach, write to the DWP and ask for a copy of all the info? Please take for granted in any replies, we knew nothing about this, and we suspect his father didnt, not in a legal of sound mind sense.
