  1. Hi All I hope someone can help. I am at present an Australian perm resident moving back to the UK on the 25th August this year. I am stopping over in Dubai for 4 days before travelling on to the UK. I am having great difficulty in finding insurance for one way travel, ie not returning to the country that it was purchased in. Has anyone encountered this and if so did they find an insurance company that they could get cover with Thanks in advance
  2. I dont think running away to the other side of the world is an answer. Your sterling from your sales will buy very few dollars now, its incredibly expensive here now and getting worse, house prices are mad and the job market is getting tough, My 2cents
  3. Like any USB device ensure that you "safely remove" the device
  4. I feel for you greatly. I was bullied in the workplace for a period of a year here in Australia. This resulted in making me very i'll. Its one of those ever increasing issues in the workplace that has taboo attached to it. I felt weak and ashamed that it was happening to me but i finally got the strength to confront the 2 managers concerned. I left there in April and found a great new job and its nearly behind me now. I still have a few mental scars though I am in the process of legal action against my former employer and the 3 day court hearing is next month where i am seeking substantial damages, damages that we will move back to the UK with next year. I will post the outcome and more detail once the litigation is finalised next month. All i can say is to keep strong and always think that something else is always around the corner
  5. If you can't afford to buy a ticket like most people i suggest you walk in future
  6. We have brought up 5 children, never needed a fat parking space, always had the bodlily functions to be able to cope with basic shopping tasks without special treatment...
  7. Maybe if families didn't have people carriers and 4*4's the normal width of a parking space for most people would be enough. Increased width = reduced number of spaces = driving around and around aimlessly causing pottential danger to other shoppers
  8. Indeed, P&C spaces are moronic, nearly as much as "baby on board" signs in the back windows of cars
  9. If they try telephone the police, they have no right and they would be breaking the law
  10. Sounds like your Mass Air Flow sensor is in need of service/ cleaning
  11. If she works 20 hours a week she would be entitled to around 2.8 weeks per year
  12. Kellie, as i stated in my earlier post it is a legal requirement to issue a contract if employment is for more than a month. This contract will show terms and conditions and any entitlements for sick & holiday pay. If she has been there for 8 years its something i would definitely ask for
  13. Firstly did she report the accident and make sure the incident was recorded in the companies accident book. What does her contract say about sick pay. All employees taken on for one month or more are entitled by law to be given, within two months of the date the employment starts, a written statement setting out the main particulars. This statement will not necessarily cover every aspect of the contract, but will constitute important evidence of the principal terms and conditions
