  1. Hi guys. Been having an ongoing issue with my current employer with me not being paid correctly over the last two months. I work a job with a "zero hour contract" but most of the time i end up working at least 40 hours, it's not the most glamourous of jobs but it pays the bills, i get just over minimum wage £6.59 @ over 25. The way holidays work with the company i work for is you accrue holidays @ 12% of your worked hours each week and as of end of june i had accrued just over 100 hours holiday entitlement since march. When we request holidays we can request either an amoun
  2. Been a quite a while since i had this issue. Basically i attended the disciplinary meeting and after explaining myself and pointing out the issues i had with other staff members - and the fact that the people giving statements and "evidence" were likely co-erced i was re-instated, albeit with receiving a final written warning. As a result of the hearing and the issues it highlighted and some other things that it brought forwarrd which were investigated i was moved to another site. After transferring my area manager apologised to me for how he handled the issue and that he should ne
  3. Ok an update, i received a phone call today from the companies head office informing me of the date and time of a disciplinary meeting - and also that copies of evidence were sent out today by first classe recorded delivery. The notice of disciplinary i have states "At this meeting the question of disciplinary action against you, in accordance with the Company Disciplinary Procedure, will be considered with regard to: Sexual Harassment Breach of Cash Handling Theft of Company Property Falsification of Company Records" None of these i am guilty of, and i'm going to
  4. i know it's been a bit sicne i updated this thread, been having issues with internet not being available... It's now been 4 weeks and one day since i was suspended, i had an update last week after contacting my area, during the phone call he asked me if i was available for a q & a session on the wednesday i agreed, he also said that depending on how the meeting went and whether there was a need for a disciplinary meeting i may be back to work as early as thursday. I turned up and this q&a session turned out to be a recorded meeting between me, my manager and area manager wher
  5. I don't have a copy of said procedurespolicy nor do i have an employee handbook/contract was never provided with one. However i work a zero hour contract so i believe suspension without pay is allowable for them whilst as most weeks i have been working 40-60 hours i'm neither salaried or guaranteed a set number of hours.
  6. Sorry i should have been a bit clearer when explaining, the person who has accused me is a current employee as far a s i'm aware, what they told me is that this person named 4 individuals they believe were stealing money one being the employee who resigned before he could be investigated - 2 others have since left. Which leaves me being the last of the 4 who have been accused, i have an idea who the accuser may be but not knowing their identity puts a bit of a downer on me complaining regarding this, also regarding the grievance i spoke to cab the day after i was suspended and they said
  7. Hello all, Recently i was suspended from work pending an investigation regarding theft. The day i was suspended i was working at the shop i work(ed?) at and was taken away from the shop floor by my store manager and area manager, they both spoke to me regarding issues in the work place saying that another superviser who recently left had resigned after he was accused of theft of company property. In this impromptu meeting my area manager accused me of breaches of procedure (i am guilty of these breaches i admit that much, it amounts to not doing some things by set guidelines) th
  8. Still thinking on what to do really, it would be nice not to have to take on additional debt when doing a consilidation loan as it would bump down monthly payments, length of the debt etc all of which are good things. Then again if something were to happen in the next two years (could be statute barred by december 2013, as last payment was in either october or november 2007?) it could cause me problems further down the road, it's definitely a matter that asks for some serious thinking and that's what i intend to do.
  9. The other debts aren't challengable i didn't take out ppi on anything im afraid, got paperwork for the others.
  10. To clarify i took a loan from welcome to pay off an overdraft, the loan was for 2300, i used this to pay an overdraft, and to start working on where i was living, i got defaulted because i had problems paying the repayments. 4.5 is roughly the figure they filed the claim for back in 2009, £7,473 is what they have written to me recently to say that i owe them at moment, i.e. this is what they are pursuing.
  11. Hi thanks for the reply. Just to clarify the original loan was to pay off an overdraft and for home improvement, i was thinking of taking out a consolidation loan to pay other debts i currently have. The discontinuance was of their claim in court regarding the loan i tookfrom them in 2007, the amount of which was 2300 (not 2700 that was a mistake), they claimed i owed them around 4.5k when they took it to county court in late 2008, i submitted the defence before their notice of discontinuance. The debts are a few K worth of various bills / creditors that i couldn't afford to
  12. Right, so i spoke to the court this morning regardign the case. Apparently i was wrong, there was no judgement as welcome finance filed a notice of discontinuance before the hearing was due.
  13. looked through every bit of correspondence i have, unfortunately have nothing from the court other than the initial claim form submitted to the county court. i do have a letter dated after the course case which reads. We have been in contact with the mediation service following the recent court order as the claimant would be interested in pursuing this opportunity for settlement. If you are interested in a mediation taking place please contact the mediation service on (Telephone number). But other than that nothing im afraid. Edit :- I do have a letter from their so
