  1. Thanks to everybody for the advice. To be clear, I have only requested the notes of MY meeting, nobody elses! I was brought up with relatively good manners, and asked this question on this site, in good faith, as it was always supposed to be a source of advice, some that you would want to hear, and of course, some that you wouldn't, which is fine. It is quite obvious that some of the comments made from individuals who have not read the original post properly. I would welcome an investigation about myself regarding assault, as there was another employee present at the time that the incident was supposed tom take place. iI didnt feel it neccesary to put this into the OP becuase if i had assaulted the other employee i would have stated that, and would not be asking for advice, as I would expect to have been sacked ten months ago! As previously mentioned, I agree with some answers and disagree with others, which, as stated, is fine, its sometimes about opinions taken from the details that i originally provided, but what irks me more than anything, is somebody who thinks that because they are hiding behind a keyboard, can tell me to 'keep my gob shut' or 'wind my neck in' would this person speak to me face to face like this ? Once again, thanks to all (but one) for your comments and opinions
  2. two more missed points.One of you comes across as a Troll by the way Surely I am entitled to have my grievance heard within ten motnhs, which is my original question
  3. Is this comment for real? I have approached my manager in the correct prescribed way with a perfectly legitimate complaint. It has taken ten months for him to do nothing and then ignore me (which is a form of bullying itself)
  4. Sabresheep, your comments are not pertinent or helpful at this stage. I havent mentioned wanting to know about any action, although I would ultimately be entitled to know that the matter has been 'dealt with' How could any action have been taken before the initial paperwork has been completed? My question on here, is how can I get my manager to stop ignoring my request for notes, and the get the matter progressed to some sort of completion. I also mentioned an allegation made against me regarding an assault, which hasnt been investigated either. Can a manager just decide to stop investigating and ignore correspondence, with no comebacks on him? I may be wrong, but this just seems as though he doesnt want to finish the case and hopes if just goes away.
  5. Sorry, misunerstood your comment. I would expect that the manager would complete all of the paperwork,and then make a decision on whether there was a case to answer for the other employee, and if so, take relevant action.
  6. Im not sure why you would ask me what I want to achieve. I am asking what I can do to make the manager finish doing his job, and if he doesnt, then what can I do about it. Its nothing to do with achievement.
  7. Hi all, I had cause in January of this year to raise a grievance about a colleague. To explain, I work alone on a long shift and take over from a person who has worked an identical shift during the previous night (ie we cover a 24 hour period) When I arrived, and he eft, I noticed that he hadnt performed the work that he was supposed to do. This had happened before, but on this occassion, I decided to complain about him, and took photographic evidence to suppport this. When my manager interviewed me, which was about 4 weeks later, he viewed the pictures, and also cctv footage, which I also had a view of, showed the person who I was complaining about, performing an act which would be described as theft. I wont go in to what the incident was, as it is not pertinent, but I upgraded my complaint of harrasment and bulying, due to him leaving me to do his work, to an allegation of theft. The manager did not interview the other employee until July, with no explanation to me as to why the timescales for grievance procedures had not been adhered to. Following the interview, the manager came and 're-interviewed' me in Septemeber. At the start of the interview, I asked if the other person had admitted to my allegation and the manager confirmed that he had indeed admitted it. When I claimed that this should surely be all that he required to make a decision on the incident, the manager said that it wasnt because the other employee, during the interview had made counter allegations about me. These included me allegedly holding him against the throat and threatening physical injury. He also gave the manager a number of random covert voice recordings of competely unrelated conversations between the other employee and myself. the manager said that even if they were damning towards me, that they could not be used as evidence. Since that date., I have sent three emails to the manager requesting a copy of the notes of this interview, and he has complately ignored all of them. Whwether it is pertinent or not, the other employee brings in a lot of revenue to the company by way of issuing ticket enfocement notices on cars. My question is, what can I do as an employee who works alone, and is not in a union to get a resolution to this issue? I have worked there for just over two years now. thanks for reading this
  8. Thanks for the response, the quick answer is we have no evidence of anything, I suppose if we did, we wouldnt be in this position. Im suspecting we should not go ahead with the hearing as, from what you are saying, we dont have any proper reason for the judge to set it aside.
  9. It was included in the bankruptcy, the new issue is whether my wife is liable, as we/she cannot recall taking out a joint loan, and thought it was a single loan for myself. she requested to see the original or copies of the original documents, and they havent provided this. My worry is turning up for the hearing and they suddnely produce these mystical documents, or would they have already provided them if they have them?
  10. I dont fully understand what you are saying, but assume you mean that she applied online to say that she would be defending, but then did nothing until after the decision. This was what she actually did, having no real knowledge of the court process, and was waiting for some sort of response to acknowledge the proposed defence, and as you know, the hearing went ahead in her absence with no notice of when it was taking place
  11. Sorry, I didnt put on the OP, we had ajoint account, but genuinely couldnt recall whether it was a joint loan or just taken out by myself, hence the request for the original documents, which have not been provided. Debt is approx £6,000.
  12. Hi, I'm looking for advice/comments etc please I was made bankrupt 3 years ago and within that bankruptcy was a loan to a building society. Recently a letter dropped through letter box stating that my wife owed the money and that it was going to court in northampton. Immediately applied on their online service to state that she would be disputing the debt and wrote to them with a request for the original documents to be provided, which they seemingly ignored, the next correspondence was a judgement made against her saying that she was liable for the debt. Have applied to the court (hearing this Thursday 14th) for judgement to be set aside. We genuinely cant recall whether it was a joint loan, or just taken out by me, and wife says that if proven that she will arrange to repay, but as we are not sure, we have taken this course of action. What prospects do you think that we have?
  13. There are wider issues that I have not mentioned in the original post. Suffice to say that he has been suspected by other staff of doing other things behind people's backs. I am not after general advice of how to deal with people, am more after advice on whether I am entitled to view the CCTV and whether he could be accused/guilty of theft.
  14. He poured most of the milk down the sink and left enough for his own tea/coffee for later. Was hoping for more mature responses than that. but I suppose it takes all sorts
  15. Hi all, Im probably in the wrong forum with this question, but hope that it can be redirected by a moderator ASAP. I work alone in a car park with on a rotation with three other people. I have recently been given the access code to the cctv, although I am not a supervisor, but am "regarded" as the most senior employee..... The other morning, I arrived at work, to an empty fridge, and i had called in the previous day and saw a four pint bottle there, had a look at the cctv and observed the man working the night shift pouring the milk down the sink and throwing the bottle away. He has never contributed to the supply of the milk! So, to my question,, ,am I within my legal rights to tell my line manager what I have seen, and is the man who threw the milk down the drain, potentially gultly of theft? thanks for reading, and i am looking forward to your responses!!
