  1. Sorry I have posyed this in the motoring forum as well but not sure which would be best! I purchased a car on saturday from a trader through the autotrader website. He advertised it as HPi clear but when going to view the car he said he has misplaced the HPi check but will email it over to me. All was well I thought so bought the car. Any way a couple of days passed with him fobbing me off with stories why he hasnt sent the HPi check so I did my own. Everything was clear except the mileage which is 100k more from the previous registered keeper to what the odomter says and his advert. I called him and he sounded suprised and said he would call the guy he bought it off to get his money back. I said thats not my problem the deal is between me and him and I would return the car for a full refund. He said this is not possible due to having no mopney until he gets the money back from the guy who he bought it off. Any advice? I have tried ringing him but he keeps saying he is in meetings and will call me back. I am waiting a call back from trading standards for further advice.

  3. I agree it does sound like rolled up holiday pay, but a funny way of doing it! I would raise the question and see what their response is.
  4. I can only really echo what has been said above. How long have you worked there? Failure to follow the statutory procedure is instant unfair dimissal and if you appeal and dont get your job back I dont think you would ahve any problems winning a tribunal claim based on what you have said above.
  5. I would put it in writing stating you wish to raise a written grievance under the modified grievance procedure (as she has now left). Write out that she feels she has been underpaid and list out hours paid vs hours worked. State you believe the unpaid wages are an unlawful deduction of wages. Legally they must respond within 28 days of any grievance or meet with her to discuss. If they do not respond you could take the issue to a tribunal for unlawful deduction of wages. It may be worth stating in your letter you will be taking further legal action if the issue is not resolved.
  6. I had an Egg loan about 4-6 years ago but have no details on the loan, I think I ahd PPI on it but cant remember. Is there any way of obtaining details of a past loan and PPI from companies?
  7. They cannot vary a fundemental part of your contract without consultation with you first. They would need to have your agreement to varyt he contract otherwidse they would be in breach of it. There are 3 options; 1. Accept the contract 2. Oppose the contract but continue to work until it is resolved 3. Resign and try and claim unfair dismissal The company may dismiss you if you do not accept the contract and offer your job back under the new conditions. Again you could claim unfair dimissal if you have at leats 1 years service.
  8. No they are not able to withhold wages. I would write them a letter and ask to treat it as a modified grievance under the grievance procedure as you have now left the company. I would state that you have not been paid for May and you believe this is an unlawful deduction of wages. It may be worth saying also that if it isnt resolved you will have no option but to continue to the employment trbunal should the resolution not be satisfactory. They will have 28 days to respond to your grievance. I would give them that ampount of time and if now response put in a claim at tribunal.
  9. A statement of employment or new contratc isnt much use wiothout the employees name and like you said if it hasnt chnaged then why do you need a new one? I would raise the point that you did not agree to the chnage in hours so therefore not signing the contract.
  10. They could not make him redundant if he doesnt accept as the position is still their, it is not a redundant position, they could only dimiss him.
  11. Yes they can dismiss you if you chose not to accept the change but they run the risk of an unfair dismissal claim and it would then be for the court to decide. Your different scenario's are correct you can work on under protest but as said they could dismiss you. It really does come down to whether you are willing to accept the chnages and do that bit extra (be worse off) or have no job and a potential claim for unfair dismissal. How easy would it be to get another job quickly if you are not happy with the changes?
  12. As you have been woking the flexible hours for over a year and a half (I assume there the same hours each week?) it becomes implied into your contract that these are your working hours. TUPE protects your employment conditions so they would need to give you notice about chnaging your hours. If they dont and you left you could claim unfair dimissal in relation to the TUPE (porviding you have 1 years service). Similarly if they fired you because you dont come to work on the new rota you could do the same.
  13. If you MD is a resonable man could you not just tell him what you have posted here? Would prob be the most direct and truthful route.
  14. twoofus, keep reading; A deduction is lawful and can be taken without consent if in relation to an overpayment. Furthermore, copied from here; Pay deductions : Directgov - Employment I refer to you the second from last point which states 'Your employer is not allowed to make a deduction from your pay or wages unless it is to recover an earlier overpayment of wages or expenses'.
  15. joe I wasnt put on insulin straight away and I am type 1, they thought I was type 1.5 for a while as I was showing symptoms for both, it eventually turned into type 1 after a few days
