  1. Not really sure why most people aren't getting my point. My problem isn’t the shift at all, it’s how some are getting a better deal than others , it’s about fairness. No one can make anyone do the full 8 hour shift because the building shuts at 1pm. Choosing the shift has nothing to do with being smart because as I said, last year everyone worked a half day regardless of start time, feel free to read my post properly before you make snide comments. Once again, my post is not about any kind of shift, but the fact nothing about this is equal! God forbid I want equality in the workplac
  2. Hello, I currently work for a Government ran business on back shift (4pm-12am) and all of back shift are having to work day shift for a few days between Christmas and New Year. While I feel it is unfair that we have to change our shift, this is not my problem. My problem is, a week ago we had to state what time on day shift we were going in: 7am-3pm, 8am-4pm or 9am-5pm. I chose 7-3, only, today we have found out that the building is closing at 1pm (which it did last year but everyone just worked a half day regardless of time started and got paid a full days pay)
  3. Hey all, Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this but I wasn't sure. I work for [removed]) and have done for 7 months. Since working there my name is spelled incorrectly everywhere I log into - even my name badge up until a few weeks ago. It's not a huge misspell - My surname is [removed]) but they have spelled it [removed]) everywhere. I brought this to my Team Leaders attention when I joined and they said it's not on - it's not my name and they will get it changed HR have refused to correct the mistake they made as they "wou
  4. Luckily yes and I have now but wont get my tax refund prob until next year, which is almost £100.
  5. Just a quick update. I finally got a reply from Manpower... that IS an admin fee and they said they take around £5 which is 50% of what I actually "saved" due to TSA but what stings the most is, they advised me to opt-in to the TSA even though I shouldn't be paying any tax at all as I've just done a tax calculator on the Governments site and I'm due a tax refund!! While I will get back the tax I paid, I wont get the admin fees back. Thanks all for your help, really appreciate it!
  6. There is no mention of any fee or charge in the TSA FAQ handbook. Funnily enough, no one has replied to my email even though they have been quick in the past and I think if there was a fee, it would have come out of my first TSA but it didnt. Stuck on what to do, because if this isn't a "fee" or "mistake" I wont get anywhere writing to Manpower.
  7. I find it disgusting because its a fee I have not been told about and when I asked the point of contact she said the amounts should match, not "there's an admin fee you know", she even said she'd look into it. I don't like hidden charges/fees, especially when I specifically ask and I still don't get told about it. An admin fee wouldn't be so bad if I actually got told about it. Yes I am returning to work after a long illness.
  8. Thanks for your reply. I was sent the booklet in an email when I first queried it but it still makes no sense to me. How disgusting if that is an admin fee but I'm hoping its an error and I will get the money back. I will see what is said on Monday and will write if I get no joy. Thanks again!
  9. Hey all. I'm so sorry if this is the wrong place to ask but I had no idea where to put it so please feel free to move it to the correct place. I am currently working in a temporary, full time position with the possibility of going permanent after 3 months. While I'm temp, I am "under" Manpower, if/when I go perm I then get took over by the company I am working for. Manpower use the TSA Scheme but I'm having a few problems and I hope someone can help me. I have been paid 4 times (I worked 1 week in hand and get paid weekly while temp). My first wage and TSA was correct: T
  10. Ah, thank you, I will email my place fo work and ask them to have one ready on Tuesday if they can. Thanks again!
  11. Hi all. I was claiming ESA from April last year until a week or so ago and have now got a new job and I start the training on Tuesday. I need a P45 but how and where do I get one from? I don't have one from a previous employer as I was a carer for my Grandmother but dont see how I can have what I need by Tuesday, especially as its bank holiday. What do I do? I didnt know I needed this until I came back from the induction today and everywhere was closed. Thanks in advance!
  12. Why do I need a credit check? Why is it any of their business what my credit is like? I am only assisting the admin dept, I dont think I would be doing anything financial within the company. I got credit for a new car easier than this lol
  13. Hi all, rather a strange post so please bear with me. Today I had a 3 hour long final assessment as an admin assistant and got offered the job after my 1 on 1 interview at the end. I was called away to the interview when I was inbetween filling in all the forms. When I finished the forms, the another lady who worked there (not the one who interview me) looked through my forms and said I need to provide proof of the last 3 years of my benefits. I was a carer for my Gran up until Sept 2014 but was getting Carers Allowance up until August 2012. The Carers Allowance stopped due to my Gran bei
  14. Hello all. I am wanting to move out of my current property where I live with my parents and rent. I am currently receiving JSA but job hunting like crazy. My question is - if I rang the local council, would they be able to give me an accurate idea of what contribution of Housing Benefit I would get if I had a property in mind? The reason I ask is that I need to know if I can afford it or not before I commit myself, I dont want them giving me a maximum/approx contribution only to find it was inaccurate. The online calculators that are on the councils website are completely useless as my pa
