  1. To be honest, I haven't got a thing in writing since court date. Judge again submissions in by 1st October, but nothing else was said. Thanks for reply guys.
  2. A fortnight ago, I was at Industrial Tribunal for a few days. It ended with the judge giving both parties until last Friday to submit their final submissions. I sent mine in late on the Thursday night, believing that was the end of the matter. At 1655 on the Friday, I got an email from the Respondents with their submissions, and reminding me I hadn't supplied mine. I replied that I had submitted mine to the judge much earlier in the day. They stated I should have forwarded a copy to them. I still have not sent them a copy, waiting for confirmation on Monday, from either Labour relations or the Tribunal office themselves, that I am required to give the Respondents a copy as well. I can't see how they require a copy at this stage, and believe they are bluffing. Can anyone confirm correct procedure. I should say, I represented myself.
  3. I booked a holiday, by phone, through a well known website, and was directed to a secondary site. On trying to book, they said the flights were with Ryanair and they needed to check the flights were still going. They came back and said the flights were indeed still going, but were £20 dearer per person. At the time, this wasn't a major deal. Coming out of work the next day, I found I had missed a dozen calls from the 'travel agent'. When they did get me, they said there was another flight leaving 12 hours earlier, adding half a day to our holiday, for no extra charge. I said I would need to check, as leaving first thing in the morning would involve an extra day off work for both myself and my wife. While we were trying to phone our respective works, the agent was again phoning seeking a decision. We both agreed to catch the earlier flight. When the booking arrived, it turned out the earlier flight was a connecting flight, and we would end up sitting in Liverpool airport for several hours, and not arrive in Majorca substantially earlier. On trying to contact the 'travel agent',we keep getting robbed off with 'a manager will be in touch'. Needless to say they never do. I've contacted the travel agents association TTA but they seem toothless. It's 10 days til we go, what options are open? Company is 123Travel/Travelate
  4. so, they start on 1st June, so in that period (6th December to 1st June) I should have had 13.6 days pay? and then after that I switch to the 28 days per year? So, I got paid 6 holidays holiday in that period, rather than the 14 days I should have... are they right in carrying those 8 days into next year and giving them as floaters then? I assume not but awaiting confirmation.
  5. i started in a company at the beginning of December 2015. They have 33 days annual holiday (after a qualifying period). Their year runs from 1 June each year. So, when I asked about holiday pay at Christmas 2015, I was told I wasn't there long enough to qualify for holiday pay (I had been there three weeks). I knew this was "strange" but didn't want to rock the boat in a new job. On the first day back in the new year, everyone got their floating holiday entitlement, I queried my entitlement, and was told to ask again in June. Again I asked at Easter, and was told I had accrued 4.1 days, so MIGHT get 5 days pay, but it would mean I wouldn't get May day. At Mat day, I DID get paid. In June I queried my floating holiday entitlement without an answer. I asked for time off in July on top of our "shutdown" period, I got 3 days off, got paid for the formal shutdown but not the extra 3 days, as I hadn't accrued enough days. Thus in the space of my first year, I will have received payment for 16 days holidays. When I queried why I wasn't getting 28 days holidays, they said it wasn't the system they worked. and if I got 28 days holiday, I would be in the same position at Christmas, where I wouldn't have any holidays accrued for my Christmas holiday. Am I right in that from 6th December to 6th December I should have received 28 days paid holidays? Or are they accurate in saying they can carry the holidays i'm owed into Christmas I just want to be 100% certain before putting a complaint in writing.
  6. apologies if this is long-winded. Basically I have a hunch my vehicle has clocked mileage, there are some tell-tale signs like the wear on steering wheel. the vehicle came from Southern Ireland, so would possibly have had KM clocks, but now has mileage clocks and is in the UK, the UK MOT certificates show corresponding mileage to what the vehicle now has. I don't know if the vehicle came to the UK privately, or with a dealer of some form importing the vehicle/first MOTing vehicle. the vehicle was written off in the UK and I bought as a damaged repairable from a salvage site, which did have a disclaimer relating to mileage, the owner at that time would probably have been the insurance company. I have driven the vehicle for 18 months, and obviously spent money fixing the vehicle, so do NOT want a full refund or anything. Is it worth checking the vehicles computer for mileage history, etc. I haven't bothered to date, as I didn't think I had any course for claiming. Many thanks.
  7. Just a quick question, probably a simple answer. I get paid a yearly bonus, this year it was close to £3000, but I've only ended up with £1800 home. My pay is in the region of 30k. Why am I taxed so heavily? I know I'll get taxed on all of the bonus, but it seems way more than the 20% tax rate. Is it because the system is assuming I'll get paid at that rate for the remainder of the tax year, and I'll get some back next month? or what's going on??
  8. so far , no. I have interoffice correspondence saying that they paid out £237 on the insurance policy for three months, which I don't really want to bring to their attention (£237 being the monthly payment), I have some correspondence showing the capital part of that monthly repayment was £175, but nothing I've found showing the PPI is £35 and the interest is £27.
  9. I'm at the stage where the adjudicator has found in my favour on two out of three loans (I'm still fighting hard on the 3rd one). On reading through their letter to the bank (the bank has until the 3rd September to reply), I've found the PPI figures the FOS are quoting to the bank are way off from my own knowledge of the loans (£777 as opposed to 36 payments of £35). The bank have quoted all figures supplied to the FOS are from their insurance provider, who I have SARed and been told they have nothing on record. These loans go back to 95/98 era. How much work is it to get the FOS to fall back onto their £1200 "average" figure, which isn't that far off what I actually paid? Any of your own experiences, suggestions would be greatly appreciated!! One last question, is SAR purely for financial institutions? or can I SAR an old employer to get details of their sickness pay scheme?? from the same era btw
  10. yep, absolutely no specific paperwork from that era, similarly sent a SAR to their insurance provider, had seen their name mentioned in interoffice correspondence, they claim to have nothing either. all the adjudicators findings are based on what they believe has happened in cases of the same era etc. etc. I have asked for all documentation/information that she used in reaching her decision, but other than that I don't have a lot to appeal on.
  11. I've had my adjudicator response to 3 historic loans dating back to 95,96 and 98. they haven't found in my favour. In the absence of any paperwork, they're reached their decisions based on other similar cases from the same bank. what would generally be the grounds for an appeal, where there's no paperwork whatsoever?
  12. even though I havn't a years employment??
  13. oh yes , have witnesses ok, but no cctv (at least nothing the firm will own up to). Have always had my suspicions though. MD knows far too much that goes on for someone casually to be telling him.... many thanks for the reassurance!! ;-)
  14. My supervisor grabbed me violently by the clothing along my side/ribs yesterday. the next time I saw the managing director , I took him to the side and had a word telling him it was out of order. he agreed if it had happened as I stated it had. I told him I was too angry to want to get into it in any great detail at that time, I would prefer to cool off before discussing any further. I have rang in sick today, not stating why I wasn't coming in. I am only in employment there six months, and don't really feel it's in my interests to put a complaint in writing. What's the odds I get sacked (I know I have no real comeback if I do)? and should I be pushing for a written apology, so I have a record if there's any "afters"?
  15. what happens when you get to the two year mark? last time I rand them, they said 18 to 24 months on the automated message, so can you complain or anything after two years? I've emailed them today to ask exactly what stage the case is at. one other question, where you backdate bank charges and so forth by 6 years, is that 6 years from the case resolved or 6 years from the case logged with the ombudsman?
