  4. I started working for the local authority under a year ago, my employment record is excellent, no absence or lateness and great feedback in first 6 months, signed off. There is 5 of us in our department, 3 males 1 other female. The female is married to one of the males. I have had nothing but grief and complaints from this female work colleague in the same position as myself. I have told my manager at every monthly meeting she is difficult to get along with, my manager said "We, had a discussion whether bringing another female into the team would change the group dynamics"

  7. My wife was employed as a shop assistant when the local village shop was taken over by a new owner. She started on the day he took over the business just over 2 years ago. Since that day she has worked consistently over 25 hours a week, with an average over the 2 years of 31 hours a week. She has never been given, or offered a contract, but is paid through the books with pay slips, holiday pay and pension etc. There is a flat attached to the shop, and for some months its been empty. The boss wants to let that flat out on a private rental, but there is a codicil attached by the people
  8. Hi all. Very briefly, my friend worked for an employer last year who paid him by bank transfer and never gave him a pay slip. My friend resigned at Christmas and since then has sent letters to the employer asking for payment for 2 days worked, 2 days bank holiday pay and 2 days holiday pay. He has since asked me to help him make a claim against his ex-employer. Evidence-wise, we have this: Original advert in local paper Bank Statements showing 7 bank transfers made to my friend's bank account starting on 11.9.2015 and ending 18.12.2015 totalling £4718 Copies of letter and em
  9. Hi all. I was assaulted at work little over a month ago, this was entirely the fault of my employer as they didn't take the required steps to ensure staff safety. Despite many complaints from the team. I haven't been to work since and have been signed off with work related stress. My employers haven't contacted me at all during this time and the meeting is at my request follow contact that I made with HR. I don't want to return to work. I want them to to pay me off to leave, obviously signing away any rights to a claim for PI or anything else. How likely is this?
  10. I work security. that bits simple My boss who is the Facilities manager has just been told as they supervise security staff they must have a Non-front line licence. The lay out of the companies involved is below. the Building owner appointed a property management company. That company breaks into 2 sub companies One side property management, the other, people who work at the buildings like Facilities managers. the property side appoints its preferred security contractor who then supplies the officers My onsite boss, the Facilities manager wh
  11. Hi all I will try to keep this brief but basically my partner has been off work due to work related stress for 4 weeks. He is being bullied by his boss so much so that he got ready for work as normal one morning and then just broke down, crying and physically trembling and could not go out of the front door. I got him to the doctors the same day and he is now having to go for councilling because his stress and anxiety is so bad. He is in his 40's and this has all had a very bad effect on him. Most days he cannot even speak to anyone from work as the stress of it just sets him back and he
  12. Hi all again, sorry if I've put this in the wrong place but not sure where it would go. My sister's partner has been working at [removed] for about 5 years now, and he's brought to my attention that he believes he's not being payed for the hours he is working. Now he starts work at 8am and only finishes when "the job is done" which is normally half 5 to 6pm. He gets weekly payslips and he's latest pay slip (21/11/14) says: TAXABLE PAY: 260.85 NON-TAXABLE: PAY 0.00 TOTAL PAY: 260.85 INCOME TAX: 13.60 NATIONAL INSURANCE: 12.94 NET PAY: 234.31 TAX CODE: 1000L
  13. Hi, I invoiced my boss two weeks ago just after i left my job there (I was self employed so had to invoice) and he is yet to pay it even though he usually pays a couple of days after, but now i've left he is obviously being stubborn. I have emailed him and he hasn't responded to any of them in the last few days. I have tried to call him but he doesn't answer so he is obviously just ignoring me. The amount is only £120 as i only done a days work for him last month so i am not overly worried about it, but it's just the principle and him being an idiot about it for no reason (barin
  14. Hi. Need some advice. We work in a care home environment. There is a good team there but some problems have occurred with a new boss. Background. We are part of two homes. The main building which provides 24/7 care, and ourselves that provide more independent living. Both have been run seperatly until now. The main building can be heavy going, whilst ours provides care taylored to the individual. Both have separate teams of staff and both are on a different rota. Change of boss. A new boss for both the homes started. At the time we passed a recent CQC inspection, whilst the main buil
  15. hi guys, i was witness to a fight outside of work which involved a collegue. i told the police that i didnt see who hit who first(which is the truth) but i suspected that my collegue was hit first because his teeth had been knocked out. now when my boss asked me to give her a statement i wrote that i saw the other man hit my colleague first. its now going to crown court as my collegue is acused of stamping on the other man. can my boss sack me for giving her false account of what happened.
  16. Hi, i'm new here and hope someone can give us some advice. I work in a big department store, we are allowed 5.6 weeks holiday a year. We have always allowed to book holidays whenever we want to (except christmas and busy periods) our staff handbook says we have to give 3 weeks notice to book a holiday. Our boss left in September and a new boss started in December. In January she asked everyone in the shop (55 of us) to book all our holidays for the whole year. This caused a little bit of a commotion because no one knew when they wanted their holidays all year, especially all the 16 year
  17. And the punch line to that very hilarious joke is: You better sit down for this - Mr McEwan will be paid £1m a year plus £350,000 in lieu of a pension. http://news.sky.com/story/1148639/rbs-boss-mcewan-to-put-customers-first He even has the effrontery to mention the government bailing them out and how important they are to the UK.
  18. This is very similar to another thread on here. My former employer is making a claim against me in the County Court for damage to one of his vehicles which I was driving during my normal course of duties. He wants me to pay £700 damages of which £150 he has already taken out of my final months wages. Below is an extract from my contract of employment which I have signed. When I signed it he wanted 8 signatures from me on 8 different sheets. On the document below of which there is an extract of the wording. He said it was if I incurred any motoring offences speeding etc. it would be my responsi
  19. I have worked in my current job since June 2012, I didn't have any problems until we moved premises. Since the move I feel I am being bullied and harrassed by my manager. The old premises had a stock room at the back of the shop which made life easy if a customer wanted us to have a look for an item of clothing. Now we have an offsite stockroom which is very cold and does not have a lot of space to work in. I am regularly over in the stockroom with no protective clothing. I have to wear leggings under my trousers and use my own thick coat in an effort to keep warm. I have stubbed my toes

  22. Hi all, First post and would be very interested to hear your thoughts. To give you a bit of background, I started work at a company on the 24th September with one other girl. The office I work in had only one member of staff left after several resignations (all very amiable sounding) , and he was appointed manager of this 'new' office. 2 more members of staff started on the 15th October.We all work in media sales. When I interviewed for this role I was incredibly excited - I was interviewed by the commercial director, who is not based here, promised autonomy to do my job as I do
  23. Jayne-Anne Gadhia told the banking commission that when employed at Royal Bank of Scotland she wanted to pull PPI. Banks could have withdrawn payment protection insurance from sale many years ago, the boss of Virgin Money said on Tuesday, but did not because they were worried about their profitability and their share prices. Hitting out against the "cartel" of the high street banking industry, Jayne-Anne Gadhia told MPs and peers on the banking standards commission that when she worked for Royal Bank of Scotland she had discussed with a "senior person" that PPI should be withdrawn. She le

  25. So times are hard at the moment, the company i work for has completely changed their management and the regime is very different. They are combating us like we are criminals. Many dismissals, disciplinarys, counselling, targeting, sackings, resignations ...ect My new boss is targeting me. Since his arrival of just over 1 year now he has on numerous occasions unfairly treated me badly, made up things and generally picked on me. I will give you a couple of examples. 1. Accused me of not leaving my home on time (even though i do and i have a vehicle tracker to prove i do). Then sho
