  1. Hi, I am very upset with Asda for possible misleading practices, misleading advertising and possible breach of the GDPR, and how they handle customer complaints. Asda is pushing '£20-off on your first online shop if you spend £50 or more' vouchers for first time shoppers. Encouraged by this I opened my online Asda account, shared my personal and private information that I would not have otherwise done, added the voucher onto my account (which was accepted onto my Asda account) and invested several hours into putting my basket together and trying to understand their w
  2. If I'm not happy with how my complaint to an airport is handled, where else can I take it, please?
  3. I had a blood test. GP receptionist called to tell me that a deficiency was identified and that I need to buy over-counter supplements, as they can't do a prescription. When I asked if I could see my blood results they said I have to pay £5 and they can print it off at the reception. I asked them again if there was another way I could see my blood test results, they confirmed that I have to pay £5 to see them. I wanted to book a GP appointment, they said they can't book a GP appointment for this. This is not a private GP, its an NHS one, and I currently don't have ANY cash to
  4. I booked disability assistance in Stansted Airport. The driver and his colleague of the disability vehicle taking disabled passengers from the plane to the airport building acted unprofessional and reckless. When the car started driving (and speeding!), the driver left the door opened right next to where an elderly passenger sat, she was petrified. After some commotion the car stopped and they closed the door. Then the car started speeding again and then suddenly braked throwing me to the floor, I was wearing a spinal brace at the time. They were saying they drove into a chain that was s
  5. I am not an expert in this. The label on the back of the TV says AC110-120V -60Hz 95W. Yes, I'll order another converter from somewhere else to test it on just to be sure! Thank you @dx100uk.
  6. Hi everyone, thank you for your replies. @dx100uk and @silverfox1961 - I bought this one: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0014FLDUG/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Cheap and cheerful, I thought it would do the job. It didn't even cross my mind that it would be a dodgy item as I never had any major problems with Amazon, I sort of trusted Amazon lol. "how do you know the tv doesn't work? got another 110v converter?" @dx100uk You have a good point. I am assuming the TV doesn't work because it dimmed down over a spay of around 3-5 secs until the screen beca
  7. ORDER PLACED: 26 October 2017 I payed via a debit card that I always use when I buy things on Amazon.
  8. Hi, I bought a voltage converter from Amazon to use for an American TV. While using it the converter started buzzing really loudly, suddenly overheated, and killed my flatscreen Samsung TV. Since I bought the product there are some very bad reviews on the product that include a person whose item exploded as a result of the item being faulty, so its not just me. I've been trying to get in touch with Amazon complaints department as I wanted to log a formal complaint about the converter and the TV, and I did this over a chat with Amazon's complaints department (- apparent
  9. @BazzaS Thank you for your response "What Group of license are you applying for (1- car, or 2 - what used to be HGV / PCV)." 1-car - for basic household tasks and getting to and from work. "Do you feel able to discuss your condition so you can be pointed to the relevant 'medical standard of fitness to drive' that DVLA should be using to reach their decision?." I had to tick the "fainting" box on the form because I have Postural Tachycardia Syndrome. The condition causes me to faint when I am standing upright for prolonged periods of time. The condition does not aff
  10. Hi, I applied for a provisional driving license in October 2016. To this day (Aug 2017) I am still waiting for it. Today DVLA told me it's still in a queue for a doctor to review but would not tell me how many months or years it would take for that review to happen. DVLA refused to tell me the average or approximate time it takes for a medical review to happen. No info whatsoever...just keep waiting... Is this normal? How long does this normally take? Is there a way I could get a provisional license and my lessons as well as the actual driving license abroad and then use that h
  11. Hi, I'm in a very complex situation and I am loosing my mind and health over this. I was wondering if anyone can assist me, greatly appreciated. Around this time last year I was asked to submit a medical form for WCA, which followed by a face-to-face assessment. My WCA for ESA scored zero points and I submitted my case to Tribunal for review. I believe I meet 4 descriptors for the Support Group. I am currently waiting for a hearing date. The medical WCA assessment outcome in 2016 recommended Work Related Activity for 12 months indicating that I could be ready for work (possib
  12. Hi, I hope someone can help me with a unique query. I need to get in touch with a particular surgeon that operated on another patient who was admitted to the same ward as me - this is for a very rare and specialist medical issue that I also developed. Unfortunately, I cannot remember the surgeon's name as this was a few years ago, but i should be able to identify the name of the surgeon from a list of names if I received a list of all surgeons operating at that hospital during the time when I was admitted there. Is this something I could ask using the Freedom Of Information A
  13. I didn't claim the holiday in the ET1, I cannot recall if I stated that at the hearing. But to be honest, I didn't claim the notice pay in the ET1 all together as I was ill-advised about my contract at the time. It was during the hearing that the judge decided to include that if I recall correctly. It's very odd, I think I was so stressed during those three days of the hearing that my mind is blocking out the memories. I literally have blanks and cannot remember what happened for the best part of the hearing. I can only put it down to stress levels lol
  14. Hi, to be honest, I was not pleased with the judgment. I was amazed how much the employers get away with and IMO the judgment was a bit one sided. I have very clear reasons for my opinion, and I aim to write down my thoughts more thoroughly for this forum during the weekend. Hopefully what I'll share will be interesting and/or useful to someone. In the meantime I need to wrap up the ends of this case and take a couple of days to take a breather. I'll re-post my quick question in case it got pushed back a bit: My question is regarding remedies and payments in relation to notice pay.
  15. Hi, I have a question regarding remedies and payments in relation to notice pay. My employer had payed me one week's notice while I was contracted to one month's notice. The judge stated in the judgement that the employer has to pay me one month's net pay minus one week. There is no mention of holiday in the judgement. Does this mean I lose my holiday? The respondent is refusing to pay the holiday as it's not in the judgement/remedies, and I fear that the respondent is correct. But then it's not very fair that I have to lose my holiday pay for that month. What's your view on th
  16. Thank you Site Team and Friends for your ongoing support! I appreciate it very much indeed. I have a rather basic question for you today. It turns out my English language knowledge is failing me. I am confused as to in what context the word "contends" is used in the Triubunal. Say if "Respondent contends" does this mean respondent "opposes" or "continues to state", or something else all together? Apologies if this is a rather basic question..
  17. Morning everyone! I was wondering what to do. Today is Monday, my hearing is on Wednesday. I still wasn't sent the complete and finished (paper) bundle. This means it will be handed to me at very short notice and with new documents which previously would not have been disclosed - or not handed at all. I believe there will be lots of new documents as the respondent started sneaking them in lately in the PDF version of the bundle. - Once in a while the Respondent emails me the updated PDF version of the bundle and there seems to be new docs added. It looks like the ones that trash my charac
  18. Another question: Can someone please give me a quick example of how to reference pages in the bundle within the witness statement? Would I have to reference pages, line, paragraphs? I really appreciate all the help!
  19. Hi Becky! Thank you for your response. Yes, the testimonials have been created recently (around 6 months post dismisal). They've included the emails with dates in the bundle of when they collected them from employees. I will try and ask for them to be struck. I have no legal support. Originally went to DLS via Legal Aid, but somehow I misunderstood the fact that they were only willing to help me until the submission of ET1. Afterwords they told me to go somewhere else for case work and they gave Stephensons as an example. But I later learnt from Stephensons that once a Leg
  20. Thank you for replying! The respondent is trying to prove that they have dismissed me for bad character. However, they don't have any formal evidence so they've been busy writing out all sorts of handwritten notes between themselves and backdating those. The testimonials have been the most recent addition. So the testimonials are relevant in the sense that they aim to prove bad character but they have gotten their employees to write those testimonials recently (rather than when I was dismissed) and they don't reflect the truth. As they are testimonials, not witness statements I can't ques
  21. Urgent question: Can employer use testimonials rather than (or in addition to) witness statements in employment tribunal? My hearing is a week away and today the Respondent added testimonials to the bundle from some of the former colleagues which have been collected recently (not during my employment). The testimonials describe me in a way that portrays me as a very bad and rude person and tells things which did not happen. But if these are testimonials, I can't even defend myself or question those people. Is this allowed?
  22. Apologies for confusion, I'm re-posting my latest question: I have submitted my ET1 claim a while ago. I received legal advice from Disability Law Service, who looked at my employment contract. I do not fully understand my employment contract as it's written in very complex language. The hearing is due in about a week. I had another independent person look at my employment contract and it turns out I am owned one month's pay minus one week!! (I wasn't aware of this due to complexity of the contract, and it was clearly missed by the Disability Law Service people). This is
