  1. From what I remember from working in car insurance from almost 10 years ago, this wouldn't be allowed by most (all?) insurers. The reason being it can be used for fraud purposes. A person has multiple policies for the same vehicle, has an accident, and then claims on all of the policies for one piece of damage, getting 2 payments meant to cover one piece of damage. Like everyone else, I'd talk with Motability and see if there is a work around you can do with them. Maybe there's a process you can 'top up' the standard insurance they use.
  2. I've called in sick at 10:30 this morning to work for a shift starting at 2. Had a reply about an hour ago (that I've only just seen) saying they've got cover for the first 2 hours of my 9 hour shift. They've got no one to do it, and I'm just to tell the other person what to do with regards to work, but I'll still be expected to work with the customers. What do I do?? When I drove home last night from the shift I also tried to call out for I was not 100% safe on the roads, and had 2 bad moments. And I wasn't as bad yesterday as I feel today. I just... there's so few of us at th
  3. Luckily all our income goes into a separate account already, the Nationwide was our dedicated bill account. Prior to this there were no penalty charges, except the odd one or two from years ago when the account was our only account. However because of this I think they've charged me for 2. Now one e-mail from a woman had said any charges would be refunded as I've been in contact. I've yet to get the current man I'm speaking to to comment on them but I have bluntly bought them up in the latest email to them so here's hoping I get a straight answer back. As
  4. Hey there, the I&E was fairly in-depth and yes had everything like TV Licence etc listed. I'll shoot off an email to them outlining CLEARLY that their suggestion would leave me around £20 short each month. They don't seem to read everything I say at once, which ends up with me repeating myself a few times.
  5. Hey again, just wondering if anyone can help me with wording an email back to Nationwide regarding this. I've sent them an Income and Expenditure statement stating that my income is £300 after all our outgoings except debt payments. I f we take the Debt payments into account it leaves us with 31.50 'spare' each month (actually less as I've miscalculated something but we can work around it in the short-term). I've offered them £25 but they're asking for £50. I could just bluntly say to them that their calculations are likely to leave us in problems bu
  6. Even if the reason behind the disciplinary would not be a factor in the new job? Such as going from a Driving job to a desk job, so the new job would not involve anything similar to the situation going on at Company B? I can't actually say what he's being taken to disciplinary for specifically because they've not told him (except in vaguest terms) but they have cancelled the hearing twice now with rather short notice.
  7. Hey all, my Brother-in-Law went to an interview today with Company A. He is currently suspended pending a Disciplinary at Company B (over an accident in the workplace that severely injured my Father-in-Law). At the interview the manager conducting it said they would not be able to offer him the job because they know that he's under investigation at Company B, and went on to say he knew of it because he knows someone that works at Company B. Is he allowed to do this??
  8. Bah, looks like the T&C says Any overdraft that we give you can be immediately reduced or withdrawn by us and all overdrafts are repayable on demand. We will aim to give you not less than 14 days’ notice before reducing or withdrawing your overdraft or demanding repayment. The person I'm emailing regarding this does not seem to be on the ball. She forgot to attach an income and expenditure form, and seems to be under the impression that having the 250 come out of my account was fine by me and that the reducing overdraft was to reduce it even further afterwards. Not what I
  9. Hello again, sorry I've not been responding, I havent been getting alerts to new posts it seems. I'm also in talks with them trying to get them to agree to a reducing overdraft arrangement, I'll post more tomorrow but for now I'm going to try and find where in their T&C that 21 days bit is. Is it working days? Even if its 3 weeks from writing the letter the deadline should make it Wednesday and they've adjusted the OD 2 days early on Monday. I'm sure I'll be back here soon
  10. Hello everyone hoping to get some more wonderful help from someone that can help My husband has received a letter from nationwide today saying they want to reduce our agreed overdraft limit on the 7th of November. We do not have the fund available to us to do this and if they do it we will have to leave the overdraft at what it is now and will start to (I assume) incur fines, which will quickly spiral out of control as there is little chance we'll get it to what they want any time soon. I would, if the situation was better, ask family for their help in the matter, but
  11. Did he receive any training for working on this new machine? When the new machine was installed they were instructed on its normal use. They were never shown what to do in the event of a jam. Was a risk assessment carried out for that job? Unknown, how would we find out? Did they report it to RIDDOR (he must have been off over 7 days because of the accident): It has been reported to HSE, if this is the same thing. I called HSE not long after posting and they said they were aware of the incident and if he wanted he could put in a request under the Freedom of information act to receiv
  12. He feels like he's got no blame in this anyway so no fear on that He's laying the blame entirely on the company and the situations they got put in. In his words 'This would never have happened with the old machine'. (Old machine was replaced with this model within the last couple of years).
  13. Hey all, hoping I can get some more experienced views on some things. My Father in Law was involved in a very serious accident at work a few months ago. He survived, although he may not recover full use of an arm or leg (he was at risk of loosing them). He was dragged into a machine and crushed while trying to clear a jam. He's now received a letter from his work saying that their internal investigation has concluded and that he will be invited to a Disciplinary Hearing (date to be arranged). Government Health and Safety officials were there on the day, however he hasn't hear
  14. Yeah I thought I'd follow it up as I've been back on this site recently, and it was playing on my mind tonight.
  15. Hey all, dragging this up after almost a year but it still niggles at me a bit. I received a reply after sending one to the above email from the 'Executive Office'. It basically said they acknowledged my email and that I had received another customers details, and he in turn yet another customers, they were taking it very seriously and were going to fully investigate it. They appreciated my brining it to their attention, but they would be 'unable to confirm the outcome of our investigation or on what action we will look to take with any individual concerned going forward'. I guess
