  1. I have contacted ACAS and I'm waiting on the outcome of this. I have since discovered that this has happened before to a previous employee who just walked away without raising a grievance. So I guess they think this is normal behaver and this is how to treat their employees
  2. Many thanks I did engage the union who has now finally come-up with a formal letter which has been sent to my previous employers. Any response I receive will be posted. Thanks for your help thus far.
  3. Many thanks for your response. Is there a template letter that i can used to seting out formal grievance for unpaid commission, unlawful deduction of wages? even though I was dismissed and reinstated, working on old contract as no other was given and no t&cs for the new role. Thanks again.
  4. Hi All, I wonder if anyone out there can give me some advice on how to deal with my predicament? I should mention before I continue that I worked for the company for 3 years before my dismissal In May of this year I was dismissed from work for gross misconduct, the reason for the dismissal was I did not fulfil my contracted hours ‘my timekeeping was not what it should have been’ Prior to this there was no complaint about my timekeeping nor was I give a formal warning or undergone any disciplinary / capability hearings. My work did not suffer because of this and someday I would start work from home. I was sent a letter to attending a meeting where I was told I would be suspended without pay. I should mention that I have worked for the company for 3 at this point. After 10 days I received a WhatsApp message to attend another meeting, in this meeting I was dismissed. A few days after my dismissal I was called back to attend another meeting, which resulted in my re-instatement (this re-instatement involved me doing the same job with additional responsibility for less money, which I agreed to although none of this was in writing). I was told that in this new role they would be a probationary period of 3 months. After the 3 month I was told that I failed the probationary period and that my service would no longer be required, no complaint or feedback on my work was mentioned during the probationary period. I guess my questions are: · Is the gross misconduct ‘gross misconduct’? · Was the correct procedure followed by my employer? · Was I re-instated under the same T&Cs – I never receive a new contract or JD? I am a union member should I approach the union on this matter? Thanks for your help in advance
  5. Some Advice please. 3 years ago I was served a statutory demand by DCA who tried to recover a debt what was statute barred, the statutory demand was set aside and At the time, my credit history was find no CCJ recorded/issued against the debt. Now two years later DCA is attempting to do the same thing, I receive from Northampton bulk centre a judgment for claimant (in default), because of this, I have had a CCJ recorded on my credit file. The DCA states monies due from the defendant to the claimant under a regulation agreement between the defendant and original creditor (HBOS) and assigned to the claimant on (they have recorded two different dated, ##/12/2006 and ##/12/2006) notice of which has been provided to the defendant. The defendant has failed to make payment in accordance with the term of the agreement and a default notice has been served pursuant to the Consumer Credit Act 1974. I have not received any notice from HBOS or DCA and I have not acknowledged any debt from HBOS or DCA in the last 15 years I did not receive a Claim form so I spoken to the court who advised that I should complete form N244 and return it to them ASAP this has been done. A week or so later I received a Notice of Transfer of Proceedings, which says that the claim has been transferred to my local court, the same court that set aside the original attempt by the DCA to cash-in on a statute barred debit. I have now received notification from my local CC that the Notice of hearing of application is schedule for April. When I submitted form N244, I included as additional information all paperwork relating to the original hearing 3 years ago. I'm defending this case not knowing if the debt actually belongs to me, like then and know and after requesting the original signed agreement I still have not receive any paperwork to show that this debt relates to me. I just hope that my defence that the debt was statute barred at the date of the judgement and at the time of the original hearing and that, I never received the Claim Form is a strong enough defence. Is there anything else I should do in respect of the above?
