  1. I think he wasn't trying anything weird, he was just under the impression that I WAS still sick, for whatever reason.
  2. Update, told him I can't get SSP as I'm no longer sick, he said he wants to still keep me employed but not as a casual worker, just on no hours but he can call me in whenever he needs . I just said no and that I'm looking for something with more hours
  3. Yeah I don't want to be on SSP, I just want to know why he suggested that. I did say I'm better but maybe he misunderstood? It seems really weird that I wondered if it might be dodgy.
  4. That sounds good, would I be "employed" by him still? Maybe that's what he meant by keeping me on his books. What if I found another job?
  5. Emmzzi What would it mean if I came back on a casual basis?
  6. Yes I think that I will, I just wanted to see if anyone could give me any insight as to why he suggested it. I know he is pleased with the work I did and would like to keep me on but maybe he was just talking about short term and I was getting confused but I did tell him I was better now, and I'd only been sick for a couple of days so wouldn't need a sick note for that anyway!
  7. I haven't been unemployed so I don't think it's that. I was only out of work for a few weeks before I got this job. I don't think he "likes" me, I am pretty sure he isn't married but I am an overweight, sweaty man, lol, he would be a bit weird if he did but each to their own. I really don't know why he is saying this as I had telephoned him to say I would leave and then he said about keeping me on the books on SSP???? It just seems so odd. My doctor has said because my depression is severe that I am probably not fit to work but this guy doesn't know about that, so I don't know how he thinks I would get signed off anyway. Even though my doctor offers to sign me off I have never taken him up on it because I like to try and work hard.
  8. Hi, I took a job working directly for someone who runs a small business. It was on a month long basis but at the end of that he said about extending it. Now, I became sick and had a couple of days off and also decided the money wasn't ideal for me at the moment so said I'm getting better now but I appreciate being given the chance to stay on but I will leave at the end of the month as the money isn't what I'm after at the moment (it's part time). The guy said if I can get sick notes from the doctor he would like to keep me on his books but on SSP as I will get some money then and can come back when I want to and if I change my mind can leave then. I thought this sounded a bit shady as I have just told him I'm no longer sick. I -could- get sick notes because of my depression because it is really bad which is actually more honestly one of the reasons I do want to leave and have a bit of a break, but he doesn't know about that. I just thought it all sounded really weird, and WHY would he do this? What benefit is it to him? I don't want to be involved in some sort of tax fiddle or anything. I was really taken aback by it and also isn't he telling me to get sick notes when as far as he knows I'm not sick anymore? Isn't that a bit weird?
  9. Thank you, I hadn't even thought about that. Do you think it's still OK to be employed by this person? I don't want to be involved in something dodgy (although we don't know it's dodgy), and I have decided to definitely say "no" to setting up these companies.
  10. I went for a job interview, which was supposed to be paid work for admin. However now the person has said instead he will set up companies in my name (I am currently self employed and looking to expand to have my own business) and in return I can use his office space for free, and he will advertise and take on staff for my company. Only I don't need an office and don't really need staff, I just want to do this on my own. I told him this and I said the reason I want the job with him is because I just need some money to pay the bills, and I'm doing my own business in my own time. He said to try and think of a business plan of what money I would need in order to convince me. I am so confused - what does he get out of this? Well I guess me working for nothing doing his admin too, but is it dodgy? I said no and I want to be employed, but now I'm even worried about getting paid by him at all. What he said made sense, about advertising and getting more clients but I'm just a small sole trader, so it doesn't appeal to me. I'm going to say no and just do the work for him but he was saying when there's downtime to start working on this business plan etc, I'm not that good at saying no, I don't want to be talked into it, especially if he's dodgy. He was saying about having mutliple companies as he is someone that registers businesses for people. Please can someone tell me if this is something dodgy and should I just not do any work for this person? It's really made me concerned and he has my personal details, copy of my ID etc, for the employment, I'm worried is it some sort of [problem]?
  11. Guys, I just thought of something else. The first incident that I believe is discriminatory was almost 3 months ago. Even though I didn't complain about it internally at the time but am complaining about it NOW in my dismissal appeal, should I put in an ET1 so I'm not out of time? And will it go against me that I didn't complain at the time? I honestly thought it would just blow over and couldn't handle the stress of doing a grievance at the time.
  12. Papa Smurf for some reason I can't send PMs, I'm not sure if I can receive them so if you have any advice regarding the document I sent you would it be OK to post it in here please? Please don't paste the document in here, as it has some specifics I wasn't going to put in here just in case.
  13. Hi Madari, thanks that makes sense, although in my case they suspended me on full pay for one week while they investigated the incident. They fired me a day before the suspension ended. Is that still okay?
  14. I can't seem to edit my posts so I'm making another one to ask one more question: I was given a paid suspension until a set date but they actually dismissed me with effect from a date before the end of that suspension, so I have not been paid for as long as they initially said. Is this OK or is this something I should appeal / question also?
