  1. i must admit when i heard about how this is run it just didnt sound right to me at all im guessing there is not a lot that can be done in regards to the situation shes in right now?
  2. im hoping somebody out there can shed some light on an issue a friends of mines girlfriend seems to be having in regards to "Self Employment" i`ll try keep this as breif as possible my friends girlfriend was short of money and saw an advertisement in the local paper in regards to a job working from home the job description was "people required work around your own schedule" she rang for the job and subsequently was hired that same day the business owner showed up with a peice of printed paper basically saying "You Are Self Employed and are NOT employed by (business name here) he got her to sign this paper at the bottom but he failed to sign it himself since she started this job hes incrased the work load by quite a lot and is paying her £4.50 per hour my question is what can i do to help her as if she is self employed what proof of this would she need for tax/N.I contributions as the way i see it he dictates the work load and pay and provides no payslips surely she cannot be self employed? my apologys if this post is in the wrong forum but i want to help her get some answers
  3. thanks for the reply im hoping your right as alli have done is enquired and it was bad enuff to be told from the disability employment advisor "we wont help you pursue this course as you have never worked in that job before so..and.being told im on the sick and should remember that (well that for me was just an insult) yes im on this horrific benefit thru an accident that wasn`t my fault and i never wanted to be on benefits at all i was very happy being a working man paying my taxes its soul destroying the way the benefits system is worked as it seems if you want to better yourself they just tread on you but if i wanted to mooch the state for the rest of my life im sure they would let that happen sorry for the rant im scared/confused and angry at whats happening it just seems insane this is happening all because i enquired about retraining for the future i guess they cant understand or comprehend the fact there actually are people out there who dont want to be on benefits and would love to better there lives
  4. i`ll try not to make this to long a read but heres some information before i explain my dilemma 4years ago i was in a horrendous accident and broke my pelvis and spine after months of hospitalisation and plenty of pain i found out from my local gp that iv crushed nerves in my spine and was written off on incapacity benefit as ya can imagine after 4 years of being in a black hole i decided i would enquire about 1 day getting back into work and gettin my life back together rang my local joke shop (sorry i meant job center) spoke with a Disability Employment Advisor i asked about help in obtaining a fork lift truck licence and was told in not very many words "you have no chance as we wont help fund that for you as i have no previous expreience in this work" i think (ok well how are ppl sposed to obtain new skills then?) after leaving it at that for a few weeks i decided to ring back and try chase this once again after a few mins on the phone with the same empty headed disability employment advisor and a heated debate(lol) she said not gonna help me at all and im on the sick and should remember that (she then slammed the phone down) 2weeks later i get a letter from the dwp/job center with "an invitation to office interview" with the wording we need to see you in order to discuss the benefit we are currently paying you because a query has arisen on your claim so i went to the interview and as soon as i walked in the customer complience officer told me thers been an allegation made against me about my claim and entitlement to be on incapacity benefit wouldnt tell me who made the claim (but foolishley he popped out and i saw who made the allegation against me the Disability Employment Advisor who id argued with a few weeks before) now im sat in limbo stressed out wondering whats gonna happen to me now does anybody know the procedure on what happens next all the bloke told me was its gonna be looked into and a decision will be made (no time frame on that decision at all) am i going to be punished foe mearley enquiring about possible training in the future? sorry for the long read people but im so worried its not even funny

  11. im sorry i dont have any way to scan the documents and upload them the 1st page after what iv allready typed out is a credit card agreement regulated by the consumer credit act 1974 and sets out the parties involved/key financial information then its got Other financial information and after a further 5 pages of the terms and conditions its got ANOTHER page saying Credit Card Agreement Regulated By The Consumer Credit Act that page starts off with 1.Parties..the parties to this agreement are Bank Of Scotland plc. The Mound,Edinburgh,Eh1 1YZ and miss (the gf`s name) 2.Key Financial Information Basically the same copied papers as on the 1st page that states Key Financial Information basically 8pages copied front and back of the same terms and conditions and NOTHING with a signature on from the Gf i was under the impression that the cca request was for a Signed Original copy of the agreement? not a reconstituted quickly copy+pasted copy of the same terms and conditions Twice but as they say in there letter "PLEASE NOTE WE ARE NOT REQUIRED TO PROVIDE A COPY OF THE ORIGINAL SIGNED AGREEMENT UNDER SECTION 78 OF THE CONSUMER CREDIT ACT" sorry couldnt upload them just dont know what to do next about this scenario with the halifax joke of scotland
