  1. your employer must confirm in writing that you won the appeal, you should also consider seeing a solictor as companies should never be allowed to get away with this and other forms of pressures on employers - companies should never be allowed to treat staff like slaves - you need to take a stand and think about setting up a facebook page this will put the company under pressure - name and shame them!
  2. if the temp is 16c then you are legally entitled to walk out of the building, there is no change at the moment with the airc conditioning, people are wearing scarfs and jackets, whilst the manager has his own temp controlled office nice and warm. the management at provident and 'deputy managers' do not care one iota about these things. All they care about is meeting targets, and anyone who is dead weight ( not meeting targets) will be dealt with either through capability or performance measures. Provident is placing its staff under extreme pressures, they are now measuring the time it takes you to do all your pieces of work in the day and are telling staff for example 'you need to do 50pcs of xyz in 1hour' because we have measured the average - this is just plain wong, many many employees are up in arms about this - more pressure ontop of the pressure they have, 1 particular 'deputy manager' who has been on no training course to become a 'deputy manager' does not have the skill set and simply throws work upon work on your desk, knowing you cannot complete it all in the day and then she makes a big fuss and goes and tells the senior manager that xyz has failed to meet target.....vindictive behaviou....the HR will get involved in this matter very shortly wrists supports have not been provided - so staff who develope rsi can sue the company provident keep a log of how long you spend when you go to the toilet and tell you that your taking too long, for christs sake! - its no wonder that even 2 directors have just recently been made redundant and the companies shares are fast falling down in price as investors are starting to sell up provident despite all the gloss and fancy web site is not a good employer at all - they make you work like slaves under very extreme pressures If what the manager is doing adversely impacts on performance and can be shown to do so, then the employer might care about it. Otherwise they probably won't.
  3. Temperatures in the workplace are covered by the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992, which place a legal obligation on employers to provide a “reasonable” temperature in the workplace. The Approved Code of Practice suggests a minimum temperature in workrooms should normally be at least 16 degrees Celsius, well the temperature in the new building on some days is below this and the staff have the option to walk out and leave the building if they knew about this
  4. they have people working under tremendous pressure and many staff have been on sick leave with depression with the unwanted stress that manager and acting managers inflict on staff
  5. the new desks and drawers are an utter disgrace far too small and not ergomically designed, in fact the whole desk and drawer arrangement is wrong, no pedestals have been provided when other depts are using them, so right from the word go, one silly manager has decided to have their own set of rules - they said the sense of power make a man mad, how true! 'clear desk ploicy' - now you cannot have ANYTHING on your desk when you finish work - not even a pencil - or else you will be reported and the manager will disclipline you, people are taking apart their filing trays in the evening and then rejoining them in the morning and putting them back on their desks, as well as all their other work. provident did not have this policy - last week - when in their old building - so why the need for such a silly stupid decision by the company?????
  6. you should never work extra hours with any employer if they do no pay you, otherwise your basically working like a slave - for nothing make sure before you work any extra hours that you will be paid time and half or double time as is the legal requirment
  7. Can anyone confirm if Provident Financial in Bradford are breaking health and safety rules, reaons being 1. A particular manager has point blank refused to allow pedestals for staff to be used in his department, when other managers on other floors have no problem with their staff using pedestals? Surely this is a health and safety matter, pedestals are used by staff if they are sat in front of their pc 9-5 every day to help with their posture. 2. This manager does not allow staff to have a break of 5 mins as is the legal requirement if your working with a vdu 8 hours a day. 3. No wrist arms rests have been provided to staff 4. No screen anti glare screen protectors have been provided When staff work 8am - 6pm - they are only allowed a 1hr break in the whole day, no other breaks are provided. The company has set 'service levels' which are reality designed to make staff work even more harder, more stress 5. When staff work on a saturday - they are only paid time and a half, should staff working saturdays be paid double time? many thanks
  8. You should also report this letter to OFT and Trading Standards at Consumer Direct
  9. wescot is part of the provident financial group - they will make threats to take you to court but in reality its too expensive for them to take you to court over £42 the courts costs for wescot will be too much, so just ignore the letters they cant do anything to you
  10. you can take legal action against provident if they send you statutory arrears letters its a demand for payment, you need to see a solictitor do you know that you can get ALL your loans/debts wiped out in 12months by only paying £90 and making an application for a debt relief order, after 12 months ALL your loans inc your provident will be wiped out. When making the application for the debt relief order make sure you are paying under £50 a month to provident in your repayments or provident can use that to file an objection with the insolvency service............ right.......... now you have filled in your debt relief order and sent the £90 to the insolvency service, now just sit back and wait 12 months without paying any of your debts to any of your creditors, after the 12 months have expired..........ALL YOUR DEBTS will be wiped away, simple as that your better offer paying £90 for a debt relief order and saving yourself a whole wad of money
  11. you took out £300 and they have charged you a whopping £246 interest, so your total is £546. do you know that you can get ALL your loans/debts wiped out in 12months by only paying £90 and making an application for a debt relief order, after 12 months ALL your loans inc your provident will be wiped out. When making the application for the debt relief order make sure you are paying under £50 a month to provident in your repayments or provident can use that to file an objection with the insolvency service............ right.......... now you have filled in your debt relief order and sent the £90 to the insolvency service, now just sit back and wait 12 months without paying any of your debts to any of your creditors, after the 12 months have expired..........ALL YOUR DEBTS will be wiped away, simple as that your better offer paying £90 for a debt relief order and saving yourself well over £400 in the process
