I have worked for a local council department for the last 8 years. Recently, I took up a Saturday job with another department of the council and when the manager of the department rang me at the end of May 2012 to say I had the job and would I like to accept it, I said yes but that I had 4 to 5 days planned off in the Summer and would that be ok to take. She said yes and I took her at her word. Anyway I started, took the first two planned Saturdays and that was ok but when I rang her during the week to remind her of the next two Saturdays, she said I couldn't have them and if I took them it would be unauthorised absence. I told her that they were already booked but she spoke to me like a school child and said that I must consider my position as I was still on probation etc. I took the holiday as planned but when I returned home I had a letter telling me that I am due to attend a disciplinary hearing next week. I am sick with worry and I have already written to the council to resign my post as I do not want it effecting my other job. Can they continue to take me to a disciplinary hearing if I have already resigned? I rang ACAS and they said that I should have got her agreement to the holidays in writing but that doesn't help me now!
I had a fine for speeding. I paid it online 12 months ago and received an email confirmation with a long payment ID Number. Subsequently I got further demands/threats from the Courts so I replied, I gave them the email, I rang them up etc but they said they couldn't trace the payment and needed bank details. At that point I stopped trying to help them. I didn't know which card I had used for the payment and besides it was getting ridiculous - I had a receipt from the Courts website and the Courts Accounts dept said it was no good and I didn't like being told I would have to pay twice because they had lost the money. I didn't think I would hear from them again Yesterday I had a Summons to appear in 3 weeks time with threats of Prison or Bailiffs if I didn't pay £85 before then. What do I do? How do I challenge this? the hearing is just to consider how I should pay - not to decide if I paid before or not. I have actually found the bank statement now which shows the payment (luckily I still had it) so I know I paid this fine. I urgently need to challenge this thing and am getting a bit stressed now. TIA
