  1. Well as for intelligence, I'm not the most intelligent but I am quite intelligent. Lets just say every role I have been given, I have found easy. In what context do you mean "but they actually mean you have some sort of deficiency"?
  2. Hi, thanks for the reply. Im not too sure what he meant by that. The only thing I can think about is I battled with him when he first mentioned the redundancies in Feb. I said that as far as I can see the role what I do will never be redundant. Is this what you mean as an undercurrent? I am going to raise this in a grievance. Surely been told your too intelligent can be some form of discrimination?
  3. Hi, this site was great for me when I had problems with my bank. Got that all sorted! I need some more help if anyone can give me some pointers or info... Back in February, myself and some other people were told we were being made redundant. We were given information of the payments we would receive. I found out that the other guys were given a retention package to stay until October. I was not offered this package so when I asked HR, I was told that the other members of the team were key to the business and their experience was why the retention package was offered to them (I used to do the same role before moving into the role I'm now in, plus I trained one of the members of the team. My role also has elements critical to business). Fair enough, I stopped fighting for the extra money being offered to the rest of the team. Roles within the company were email to us. A lot of which I felt were above my level of experience. Then Another role (stand in team leader) was offered to me which I accepted I was given a letter telling me that I had found alternate employment within the company. I have been asking since April when training for my new role would begin but I did not get an answer. Then In June I started getting really worried something was up because everyone except me started to get dates for their mid year reviews. On another note, when I accepted the team leader role thinking my job was safe, I applied for another position in the company back in June only to be told that I would not even get an interview even though the HR manager personally said its not that they doubt my abilty to perform in the role. After many meeting requests regarding my new role and requesting dates for a mid year review, my manager agreed to a meeting (not formal), and I have just been told that the new role (team leader) for me is no longer available but there would be a role as an operator in the warehouse due to the head count been down due to the warehouse manager leaving. I accepted this (nothing set in writing), because I have just moved to rented accomodation with my girlfriend and I need a job. Near the end of the informal meeting with my manager, he asked me why I wanted the team leader role to which I replied that I felt it is the next logical step for me to take and one where I could apply my intelligence. He then went on and commented that sometimes I'm too intelligent! Another meeting was set for the 17/08/10 attended by me, my manager and the HR manager. I was told that there is no position available for me anywhere in the company and I will be made redundant under the original terms set out in February. I have just had my final meeting and I have been served notice. In the meeting my manager spoke out and said that I was aware of jobs available but I refused them (the only jobs I turned down were jobs that were way out of my ability and I accepted a post they offered to me but then they retracted the position). I have been given 7 weeks notice. I did a little digging around after the meeting and I have found out that only a small portion of my job is going. The rest is going to a collegue of mine (I am currently on more money than he is). I just wondered if I have a case thats worth going to tribunal with. I will be following the correct way to go about this. Please if anyone has advice I would be most appreciative
  4. Hi Thanks for the reply, I will try and clear up a few things for you. WRT selection, the logistics department are being made redundant due to the roles being centralised at our branch. I was moved into the logistics department back in 2007 to cover for illness. (I was never included in the logistics head count due to me only being in the role to cover). I was offered a job in the warehouse dealing with transport bookings late 2008 and I moved into the warehouse for this role (I am included in the warehouse head count). After fighting to keep a job, I was offered a stand in team leader role due to start the end of Ooctober as the current stand in team leader was moving to another department. The current stand in team leader has now changed his mind so this role is no longer available to me and I have been told that im facing redundancy due to the logistics team still being made redundant (they have just been served notice). I was told there is no movement in the company which would allow me to move into a role and escape redundancy.

Another role (stand in team leader) was offered to me which I accepted I was given a letter telling me that I had found alternate employment within the company. One of the terms for this role was for me to take a 3 year pay freeze which became effective immediately which i was not told. I was under the impression that the pay freeze would start when I start the new role. Because of this, I did not receive the annual pay rise which everyone in the company recieved. I have been asking since April when training for my new role would begin but I did not get an answer. On another note, when I accepted the team leader role thinking my job was safe, I applied for another position in the company back in June only to be told that I would not even get an interview even though the HR manager personally said its not that they doubt my abilty to perform in the role.

I was told that there is no position available for me anywhere in the company and I will be made redundant. Will the company now have to serve me notice again with a new redundancy package? Am I entitled to ask for the pay freeze to be lifted and ask for the pay rise I would have received to be back dated (the other members of the team who are also being made redundant did receive the pay rise). I just feel like I have been treated unfairly. I'm not sure what rights I have so as I mentioned before any help would be appreciated.

    Still No hope

    Hi Hedgey. I still have the letter it reads: We write to confirm that your oustanding indebtness to the bank in relation to the above accounts has now been discharged, and enclose a cheque in the sum of £xxxxxx in respect of the overpayment you have made to your accounts.......................... I do not have a court date they just keep theatening to take me to court. I have wrote a letter of complaint but i am still waiting to here from NatWest. They have really stuffed things up as i cannot get a debit account no more as they have black listed me, and i need a debit account now as my new job involves travel abroard. What can i do about this mark against my credit because it was natwests fault to begin with? It would also be a great help if anyone has the name of the customer services manager as on the letter i received there was no name on it just a signature above customer services manager.
  7. I posted the original gripe 10 months ago : Hi there Im new to this site and just wondered if anyone could offer me some help. In June 2006 i had a problem with my current account, I was told I still owed money to my student account, this was three years since I heard off NatWest about this account, I thought I had paid back my over draft as I had heard nothing. I was told I could no longer have an account with NatWest so I agreed to pay the outstanding amount (around £120) on the 21st of July. On the 14th of August I received a cheque from NatWest along with a letter saying all accounts were discharged and the cheque was made in respect of the overpayment i have made. I moved to another bank but a mix-up at work caused them to send my wages to my old NatWest account, I phoned NatWest and was told it was no problem and i could take my money out straight away. Now here we are. Last week I received a letter from a debt recovery agency saying I owed NatWest £300.14. I called NatWest headoffice but they said they couldn't help and I would have to go into the branch to find out what ahd happened. I went in today and they told me that when I closed the account (23rd August) I took all money including what I owed them because the debt was not off set. How is this possible when a when a week before i closed the account i had the letter saying all acconts had been discharged? Any help would be great as I am thinking of taking legal action against NAFWEST!Hi there I have had no response from Natwest at all. The case got took on by Moorcroft and i received calls nearly every day telling me that if i didn't pay the debt they would take me to court. I told them the situation that as far as i was concerned i had already paid the debt and had no account with NatWest no more. moorcroft told me that they did not have any direct contact with NatWest so i had to get on to the bank myself. I did not contact natwest but a week later i received a bank card from NatWest even though i was told in june 2006 it was illegal to have an account with them because of the outstanding debt. who is it illegal for me or NatWest? anyway june this year i heard nothing from moorcroft and then in july another credit recovery agency started calling (robinson, way & company). they give the same scare tactics as moorcroft do but i aint going to budge. I have been to CAB but they just recommended me to write a letter to the bank which i have already done. I just need some advice because its nearly a year on and they wont leave it. why dont they just get it over and done with by taking me to court? Please anyone with something helpful just give me a shout. Owen
  8. lol hopefully i will have quite a few more years before that starts Mrs!
  9. Yeah i had to start shaving my head because i started pulling my hair out! The only evidence for the cheque is a statement from my new bank which shows the cheque paid into my new account. Is that any good? Thanks
  10. Thanks Mrsfoot I went in today but they were not too helpful. They just basically told me I took too much when i closed the account. I do not see how this is possible, and why have they not been in contact with me? its been nearly 4 months since i have used natwest
  11. Hi Yeah I have still got the letter. I have the original and I have made a few copies too
