  1. Hi, I've been working for a large plc group in retail for almost 3 years next month. Today my Assistant Manager asked I bring in my Passport/NI Card and Birth Cert. I asked why as I provided these when I joined, and as nothing has changed since then I was puzzled. I said they are on my personnel file as they were copied. Any ideas if I should be alarmed??
  2. Ethel Street. Not sure what he is looking for, none of the staff are able to read his mind. Emmzzi: I actually haven't been in since Monday due back in Saturday as in previous post he's cut my hours...I wouldn't describe myself as not assertive, I never shy from awkward conversations. Ericsbrother: I agree, to be honest I would rather fight for the role and win it fair and square than anything else.
  3. He knows, I had a meeting a few weeks ago regarding increasing my hours. He said he wished he had twenty of me to cover the store as I do a thorough good job. Yet now he's cut my hours back. Totally befuddled with the situation.
  4. Thanks Renegadeimp..When the role became available the Manager had mentioned to my Supervisor he had someone in mind i.e the lady from the other store. She said to him, but you have someone already under your nose who is ideal, to which he relied who? Not sure if he is not in tune with his own staff or focussed on this other person.
  5. Morning All, Not so much an issue, more asking for clarification. I work for a retailer plc (2.5 years) and recently a member of staff left leaving a vacancy on my department. I am already experienced and have been using ex colleagues system to keep the role afloat whilst we find a new member of staff. I have applied for the role, as I am already au fait with the role and assisted the ex colleague since I started. I applied before the deadline, I know of another colleague from another store has applied (she has no experience on the department I work), however the role has now been advertised
  6. Evening Could you put me straight on the issue of holidays. My background I work part time for a large home ware store, 3 days per week 16 hours, Monday/Thurs and Sat. My issue I need to resolve is: If I am taking some of my working days off as holiday, for instance my last time off was -working monday holiday thur back in Saturday..Was my boss within his right to ask me to work the weds of that week? To me that would mean I am not really getting a break? What is the point of taking a days holiday if I have to go in the wed so not got a few days off.? I may as well h
  7. In Southport I believe a lady who signed on briefly in March who is a single parent with two teenage children was automatically enrolled on to UC I believe it was a nightmare for her took 6 weeks to process and then they got her earnings wrong.
  8. Thanks Blondebubbles, That information has set my mind at rest.
  9. Hi Blondbubbles I informed HMRC online giving my unique code they give you once I was registered self employed. I cannot for the life tell you where that form for notifying them goes, all I got was an automated generated email confirmation from a server with a code on it saying it will be passed on and if I owe national insurance they will notify me. I suppose I just assumed HMRC per-say all spoke to one another. On the subject of Tax Credit updates, it specifically asks for PAYE and payroll detail to hand before calling them, I have never heard of this before! I changed jobs in 201
  10. Hi Ladies and Gents Yesterday I started a new part time job and ceased with my Self Employed status. I filled out the HMRC for and received confirmation last night they had received it with a confirmation number. Now I tried to get through to HMRC today, after going through the gate keeping questions it requires me to have PAYE reference and payroll number. I don't have a payroll number yet till next week. Can I still give them all the other details they require omitting the payroll number giving them next week. I just wondered if the ceasation of Self Employed would stop my Working Tax e
  11. Hi Before I speak to my local council tomorrow I wondered if you could help me with a question. I received a housing benefit review letter with two form. As a sole trader I have to fill in my expenditure form-no problem. The other form is an A/B/C form. Part of the form is asking me to send in 5 weeks pay slips or 1 month payslip. I don't have either as I am self employed and don't have pay slips. Thanks
  12. Hi Everyone, I reside in the North West and I believe only the simplest of cases will apply. I myself have CTC+WTC+CB+HB+CTB. So in my case it is a lot more complex and existing claims will be migrated in a couple of years. I have read they don't have the technology in place to deal with such case-think it was the fiscal studies body who wrote this.
  13. Hi Caggers For anyone who is self employed and claiming WTC they will be subject to scrutiny and have to prove they are effective and working. They also have to earn each week the equivalent to min wage at 24 hours. If not will be stripped of the WTC. I have heard rumourned we will be forced back on to JSA to look for better paid work. Even with UC the rule would have given us 12 months grace to make the business work to that level of profit, no such thing with this new ruling.
  14. Hi Ladies and Gents I decided to act upon a letter from Lloyds regarding a PPI claim. They sent me a letter in March and one on May advising me they consider I have a claim for PPI compensation. I sent the forms back on the 10th of June and within a week I received an acknowledgement of receipt of claim along with the literature about complaints etc. How long do Lloyds normally take to make a decision about claim applications? All previous threads relate to last year and before so nothing of any recent experiences. Thanks.
