  1. Up to now 

     

    1 person has been sacked as they used the excuse he did it for his own personal gain 

     

    The other resigned on the day of his conduct meeting 

     

    Number 3 a personal friend of mine is due to have his conduct meeting tomorrow morning but is handing his notice tomorrow as he can't afford to be sacked because this would possibly make it hard for him to gain permanent employment incase they told the new employer the reasons why he left 

     

    I don't know how they can use this as personal gain the sale was free to a customer and they pay 3 pound for it before tax the company puts pressure on its employees to sell on the job but it you look into my contract there is no mention of selling on the job so basically have they broke the terms of our employment as they are making us do extra duties which arnt in our contract

     

    I asked my manager 2 weeks ago for the sales policy as nobody has seen this document and it's not in my contract he said its in conduct policy and it's my core role and expectations

     

    The people above who have already had there conduct packs have received a sales policy dated October 2018 and nobody has seen this. This tells me my own manager didn't even know anything about it as he didn't provide me for it when I asked for it weeks ago now its in the conduct packs all made by himself

     

    I am still waiting on my conduct pack in the post reason I've not got mine yet is due to me being on annual leave and I return to work on 2nd September this will follow in the post weeks later I'm expecting

     

    Is it best I resign or do I have a chance here 

     

     

  2. Im in the communciation workers union

     

    We had half an hours training in front of a power point presentation so no training was not carried out properly

     

    im not a salesman im a telecoms engineer and they brought sales into the role recently but im sure it doesnt state in my contract that i am a salesman aswell as a telecoms engineer

  3. Hi

     

    i work for well known leading company who provide paid television services, last week myself and 3 other people was pulled in to speak to management about a sale we made via our work ipad if you could class this as a sale as it was a free item to the customer who was part of the VIP package so they was entitled to this extra, somebody in my team questioned a colleague of mine asking how have you made that sale when the job is for tommorow then a manager has seen this comment and brought my collegue in for questioning telling him its gross misconduct to access a customers account without being on site with the customer even though the sale was a freebie and the customer has not phoned up to make a complaint.

     

    The manager told my collegue who ever else has done the same thing will also be out the door so the manager has found out myself and 3 others have done the freebie sale via the ipad without being onsite with the customers even though nobody has phoned up to complain.

     

    Myself has done this on two occasions

    Person A has done it 3 times

    Person B has done it 3 times

    Person C has done it 2 times

     

    We have all been told this is gross misconduct and legal hr has been involved in it, we went for our meetings with seperate managers in the area they asked why we did it, how many times we did it and what process must we take to ID a customer.

     

    We get told if we dont upsell to customers and hit our 10 percent target we will be put on plans and if we still dont perform will be put through the conduct policy which i feel is unfair, We are under so much pressure to upsell to customers and this is why we have commited the above offences to keep off performance plans but they are not interested and dont listen. i am stressed, fed up and worrying i will lose my job in the next two weeks, i am drinking more alcohol than normal and not sleeping very well lately and my moods are not the best.

     

    None of us has been suspended, they say its gross misconduct but i was told if its that bad surely we should of been suspended why they investigate im not happy about working why being investigated as it puts a downer on my day and makes me forget things or become irritated very easily.

     

    Thanks for reading

  4. I've had someone knock on my door claiming they work for a company called resolver who can deal with damp issues in my home as my housing assoation hasn't rectified any of the issues
     
    they came into the property
    took photos of the damp
    took very basic details name, address, phone number national insurance number and had their office call me back within 15 minutes to take the details over the phone
     
    I get paranoid with this kind of thing
    They seem very certain a solicitor will be in touch to claim housing association has been out 3 times in 3 years
     
    cleaned the damp and
    used anti mould paint which hasn't even resolved the issue
    was told someone would come out and look at the roof and nothing damp has been bad this year
     
    Does this sound legit or something dodgy
     
    Thanks
  5. I have had a scan through my contract and it mentions about garden leave but im not that well educated on the term garden leave.

     

     

    I gave my notice early as i wanted it all out of the way and then i could just sit back until i left my current employment up to now he has not accepted the notice and told me to give 4 weeks but by the sounds of it i could just hand this to them on 3rd July and finish on 3rd August.

     

     

    After looking through my contract there was nothing about leaving the business on my own accord and about the amount of notice i have to give to the company.

     

     

    reason i am asking for advice because this company has bent more employment rules than any other business i have ever worked for not to mention the wage dropping dispute which i settled with them out of court and eventually got my money back dated off them and my new rates increased to what they should of been 12 months i worked under this dispute.

     

     

    could anybody clarify what garden leave is

     

     

    Thanks

     

     

    Also been working for this company since June 2013

     

     

    Unfortuatnly cannot start my new employment early as i am going on holiday in July to Majorca and they require me to be in work for 3 months due to training and buddying in the field thats why my start date is August

  6. Hi

     

     

    I start my new employment in august and have given my notice for the 3rd August as my finish day today i was asked to come into the office and as usual asking me to reconsider dont know why i would as the company gives me a constant head ache.

     

     

    They sat down and said to me that they are not willing to wait 10 weeks for me to leave the business and said i have to give a maximum of 4 weeks notice which should be done today and sent by tonight to state my end of employment should be 25th June 2018

     

     

    I am not ready to leave in June and have 2 children i need to provide for a car to pay and rent to pay.

     

     

    Am i in my rights to give them ten weeks notice or are they right in what they say.

     

     

    By the sounds of it they havent accepted my notice for 10 weeks so they see me as continuing my employment until i settle another notice.

     

     

    If i give them 4 weeks notice am i in my rights to hand them this 1st July to finish 1st August

     

     

    Thanks

  7. https://www.reedglobal.com/blog/2018/01/five-things-you-need-to-know-about-pre-employment-credit-checks

     

    Pre employment credit checks are common, almost universal in some industries (eg financial services) and with any job involving access to money or valuables. Your employer probably thinks that having unsupervised access to vulnerable adults needs risk assessment because installation engineers would have enhanced opportunities to defraud, or even steal, from vulnerable elderly people. Their thinking typically is on the lines that someone who is deeply in debt and isn't earning enough to pay their debts is a higher risk of defrauding/stealing from their customers. It's bankruptcy and deep debt that they are concerned about, they won't be interested in whether you've missed a payment here and there.

     

    I always feel that's rather a dismal view of human nature, but that's how HR people (and regulators) look at it.

     

    Thanks for the info im not in any deep debt I had a look at my application today and it states do you have any ccjs over 750 pound where you cannot provide a payment plan for obviously I stated no

  8. Hi

     

    Went for my interview today for the installation engineer role passed everything did my medical and passed all that and been told their recruitment recruitment will be in touch soon to do CRB checks and a credit file check.

     

    Only thing im worried about is the credit check few years ago after i lost my job i went through a stupid patch with silly loans and an over draft, i paid the loans off, still currently paying the overdraft which is not far off setteled since then things are getting better was recently accepted on a credit card to boost my credit history which ive been using and paying off on the payment due date.

     

    I am still worried about this credit check though as my credit history still shows very low on noddle or clear score.

     

    I have never had a CCJ or been bankrupt i have set payment plans with the lenders and are paying them all off in full.

     

    Why do employers want to do a credit check this role isnt dealing with cash or anything so dont see why its needed.

     

    Thanks

     

    as for my CRB this will come back clear as ive never been in trouble

     

    i was going to ask today but didnt feel it was the best idea

  9. So i finally got a reply off drp and they claim sending mail to my place of work is not data protection and they have done nothing wrong I emailed the ICO and got no response off them

     

    DRP have sent another letter stating that I now owe 169 pound but there client is happy to settle 139 pound (this part made me laugh) the next step will be court proceedings apparently

     

    I asked them for the evidence of the car sat on their car park for the time stated and they actually missed that bit off the reply to my email not surprised really

  10. Well ive made a complaint as you suggested also emailed the CEO as ive had enough this guy actually thinks he is clever dont know how this moron has the brains to run a business this was his reply haha

     

    Just thought you should know I am based in Ireland and have nothing to do with UK.

     

    I'm sure my UK colleagues are quaking in their boots!

     

    Kind regards,

     

    guys an absolute tool

  11. make me laugh these companies how they think they can one minute say you owe nil, 0, zilch then turn around weeks later and state you owe a £150 cancellation fee, im no professional on these matters but keep all the letters they sent to you i cant see it going far for them

     

    perfectly happy to offer you a service, usually pester you to sign up with them but when you decide its time to call it a day, they shaft you side ways, wash there hands of the whole affair and then let some other pestering harassing company do the dirty work for them

  12. Today i got into work to find a letter had been sent in my name from DRP debt recovery on behalf of euro car parks rising the parking notice from £100 to £160

     

     

    i am annoyed at the fact these pathetic morons think they can send a parking charge debt recovery letter to my employers address when the car is registered at my home address and has nothing to do with work.

     

    I have been ignoring these people for the past 8 weeks like they had done to myself when i asked them to provide the evidence of my car parked up in the car park and

     

     

    to this day still nothing off them can anything be done about reporting them for sending correspondence to my work address,

     

     

    could do with something as my employer isn't to happy about personal mail coming into work

  13. Hi

     

    Just before christmas received a letter from Euro Car Parts Stating that wife had parked on Kay St Bolton car park without attatching a paid ticket on the window

     

     

    i phoned them stating i have never parked on this car and do not intend on parking here ever never spoke to such rude people.

     

    after 10 minutes of arguing with a sarcastic person down the phone i was told to appeal

    which i havent

    i instead sent an email to their CEO office also a person who doesnt reply to his emails he receives.

     

    They claim my wife parked there between 13:47 and 15:00 and didnt display a paid ticket on the window

     

     

    she has told me she has not been in this car park and cut through just to avoid the build up of traffic on the same road but she never parked there or stopped in this car park

     

     

    sent their ceo a nice email politely asking for the CCTV images of her

    entering the car park,

    parking up the car

    and walking off without paying for a ticket

    and also at 15:00 an image of her getting back into the car and driving away

     

     

    just as exepected no reply off him sent the same email twice.

     

    Today another letter comes through saying the 40 pound discount has passed and i now owe them £100 to be paid in 28 days or they will instruct a debt collector.

     

    This company sounds like an utter joke

     

    What steps shall i take now as they refuse to email me back.

     

    im just disgusted at how they think they can obtain my details through my registration and my address

  14. Hi

     

    Been working now since mid 2013 and still with the same company enjoying work and making good money

     

    Back in 2013 i came out of work and got greedy with money went down the stupid route of borrowing money from Wage day advance

     

     

    i borrowed £130 in total and with being out of work stupidly didnt pay it back

    after forgeting about the debt and settling things like overdrafts and other stupid little things

    i finally got back on my feet slowly improved my credit and things was going well.

     

    The other month got a letter from this WDA requesting i pay back £290

    i emailed them asking why has it taken them over 3 years to send me a letter requesting this money

    they didnt explain why and keep demanding £290

     

     

    ive told them not paying a penny until i get a detailed breakdown of charges there version of a detailed breakdown is

     

    Original Loan: 130

    Interest £130

    Missed Payment Fee: £30

     

    Thats all they keep sending me

    i ignorned them until they sent me what i asked for

     

     

    last week moorcrap have sent their demands on behalf of WDA with their own little charge on top for the convenience

     

    Not responded to these

    still telling WDA i want a detailed breakdown and why has it taken them 3 years to chase this little debt

     

    this is more than double what i borrowed

     

    HARSH LESSON LEARNED WILL NOT BE BORROWING MONEY OFF THESE PEOPLE AGAIN.

     

    Thanks any advice is welcomed

  15. Hi

     

    My misses was driving the car on Thursday (A3 S Line 2011) she was stationairy waiting for the lights to turn green when a HGV ran straight into the back of her and smashed all the back of my car in which also result in her being thrown into the back of someone elses car, there is only minor damage to the car in front and very little to the front of my car but this HGV from Bidvest Food Services is not for admitting liability even though the police has done him for driving without due care and attention

     

    The bloke has obviously been messing with a hand held work device, or a mobile phone or just quiet simply not been watching the road but how do you hit a car when the lights are on red baffles me.

     

    Santander have done nothing but mess about trying to contact the woman whos car we hit to clarify what went on ive told them im not interested what your trying to do with her i want to know whats going on with my car and when its going to be picked up to be taken away to be repaired.

     

    My car is now sat on the drive way waiting to be collected and i am no closer to having this simple task carried out.

     

    They have also turned round and said to me if they cant get hold of her they will need to refer me to there underwriters co op insurance which means i am liable for the excess dont see how this is my problem when it wasnt our fault

  16. Hi

     

    Need some help writing a letter to my employer regarding the 48 hour working limit they have claimed i opted out of the 48 hour week therefore i should remain doing stupid hours per day which i no longer wish to do, So if i have opted out of the 48 hour week i wish to opt back in as ive seriously had enough.

     

    They are also now threatning us with a straight written warning if i dont turn in for monday overtime even though i told him 6 weeks ago i cant do it due to school holidays and after 5 weeks they still have not sorted my £200 wage query they owe me.

     

    Id be grateful if someone could help me with a template to give to them

     

    Few Questions

     

    Can they refuse to let me opt back in to it

     

    Can they sack me if i refuse to work after 6pm and how long do i have to wait until i can clock off after 48 hours

     

    Can they disapline me for not working overtime as i cant afford another day of childcare and they also owe me money so theres another reason why im refusing

  17. Until such time as UK employment law changes, the EU Work Time Directive is still in force. This limits you to working 48 hours per week (except for certain occupations) unless you have agreed to an opt-out. In addition, if this "overtime" is not being paid for, you need to check to see if the extra hours would take you below the NMW.

     

    For more information on the EU.WTD, see: https://www.gov.uk/maximum-weekly-working-hours/overview

    For enforcement, contact the HSE: http://www.hse.gov.uk/contact/faqs/workingtimedirective.htm

     

    One question: Are you in a union ?

     

    I work as a 2 man crew and im pretty certain the 14 hour days has fallen below minimum wage for the hours we have been doing, im a on a pay per job contract and averaging £100 a day its easy money and its little things like traveling between jobs stupid distances which is keeping me and my collegue out until late

     

    I dont even want to work over time and hate it how this man expects me to put this job before my family it wont happen he claims i opted out of the 48 hour week but cannot remember signing it for this company so we will see if he recovers this document

  18. Hi

     

    I have worked on my same contract for over 3 years and was TUPED over 1st April 2015, Worked for this company now for over 14 months and things are getting very stressful, My contract states occasional overtime may be required due to needs of the business and my working hours are 48 hours per week, I have told my manager i cannot work overtime quiet simply i cannot find suitable child care arrangements and this is supposed to be my day off as i work 5 days tuesday to saturday and sunday and mondays are my day off.

     

    Mondays i have my kids i dont see them in the week so dont see why i should have to work the over time when i dont need it, dont see why i should have to put my hand in my pocket and pay out over £60 a day for 2 kids to go to nursery, my manager seems to think its ok to harrass and bully half of us to come into work on our days off with no extra money just our standard pay, his words are its in your contract for needs of the busy no my contract states occasioanlly this is creeping up to twice a month every month and im getting kind of fed up of it

     

    This week ive done over 78 hours and told him i simply cannot come into work due to child care issues and im so tired i need the rest, ive basically been threatned with disapline procedures. he says we have all signed a form which states we have opted out of the 48 hour week, My arguement is i cant remember signing it so please supply it to me and if that is the case then 78 hours over 5 days is enough then he is expecting 6 days the week after

     

    When i mentioned the over time and the hours im working all he says well why do you think we give you 4 weeks notice to sort out childcare etc my arguement is why should i put my hand in my pocket and pay out childcare and make no benefit from this over time again needs of the business comes out of his mouth i think somehow he didnt like it when said i come to work to provide for myself and my children not for the needs of the business

     

    Im so stressed with this job now and thinking of calling it a day the money is so good but its not worth the hassle
