  1. Thanks dx, as I read through other case I noticed that offenders will usually be asked for their annual income. Is this info required under certain laws so I should definitely tell TFL when they ask? or when asked by the court?
  2. Hi dx, still have not heard back since I replied to their first standard letter - should I just wait or call them proactively?
  3. Following the above Is it necessary to mention that I have worked on projects to ensure pensioners interests are protected. Conviction means I can no longer work with these public sector pension as a enhanced dbs is required?
  4. Thank you dx I want to mention: "I currently pay medical bills for my father, who has suffered from xxx and disabled for a decade." Should I also mention below (as motivation to "save money") or it will be considered as waffle? "The secured fund which I invested her life's saving, defaulted in 2018, causing huge financial pressure/concern over his long-term medical care."
  5. A friend (lawyer) sugguested to write below I am willing to make a voluntary payment going far beyond the value of the fare in question that which a court might impose upon conviction, plus any unpaid fare, administrative costs Is this a good idea? Should I just say a voluntary penalty fine + unpaid fare + admin costs? Thank you in advance
  6. Thank you dx and sorry - I will not to ask any more silly questions..
  7. Thank you dx So HR confirmed that we will not provide any written evidence regarding if I will lose job. I am certainly very regretful and show remorse and won't commit such offence again in my letter Should I ever mention I will lose uk visa if I lose my job? Or just mention the job bit but not the visa thing.
  8. thank you dx the above wording is just amazing! sorry English is not my first language so both my written and oral English need to be improved.
  9. Thank you dx - I don't think I will receive the definite answer from HR before my reply to TFL. In this case, should I say "I will lose my job" or "I will highly likely to lose job" If I say the former, but cannot provide definite evidence later on, would this be considered as a deliberate lie? If I only say "highly likely to lose job" - will TFL not to even consider settlement at all, due to the fact that I misused for 70+ journeys?
  10. Thank you dx, sorry I am confused. did you mean not to mention settlement in the letter at all? Or to mention settlement without a specific figure?
  11. thank you dx what do you think a suitable offer looks like to financially compensate TFL? Is the number I should offer on my letter being my week's income+all unpaid fares+all related admin costs?
  12. Thank you Dx Yes that case was relying on HR's written letter to directly prove conviction=lose job But it's really hard for a big firm's HR to produce such a definitive statement like this As our firm policy tends to be vague and "case by case" where in a case like mine - the result would be losing job. Any advice/suggestion would be appreciated!!
  13. Thank you Dx and HB so far for your great help. I work for a client-facing consultancy firm and policy/contract around "criminal conviction" and "dismissal" is quite vague so I may not get a definite written evidence showing that criminal conviction=losing job but there is a line in contract saying my continued employment is subject to fit and proper status and I need to fill in fit and proper form annually where under "Good character and reputation section", I will be asked question "have you been convicted of any offence in a court of law (subject to 1974 RoOA") I am pretty sure if convicted i will lose my job as most clients need me to demonstrate Good character and reputation. So I won't be fit and proper anymore The hard thing is how to prove all above as strong evidence to TFL to consider? Is it advised to use a solicitor purely to prove these? Thank you
  14. So I am aware of potential Byelaws prosecution by TFL Some gave me advice that more serious Regulation of Railways Act offence of failing to pay the fare due, with intent to avoid payment thereof is usually used by TFL in such cases? Any ideas on this Regulation of Railways Act offence? It it much worse off? Thank you
  15. thank you dx for the info when i did a free consultation with a 'specialised' solicitor he refuse to take on my case he said OOC with tfl is almost impossible after Feb 2018 when they changed their internal policy to try to procesutor everyone for public interest OCC before feb 2018 with TFL and OCC with private rail company until now are not uncommon do you have the feeling/knowledge that TFL OCC dramatically decreased after Feb18?
