  1. The defendant in a fast track claim has made an offer for an amount which is acceptable to the claimant but is insisting on a confidentiality clause which the claimant does not want to sign. What are the potential cost implications if the claimant continues with the claim and is awarded that amount or less?
  2. I have just found out via a work colleague that I am to be disciplined for something at work. It appears my line manager informed employee A of this, including the nature of what I am to be disciplined for. Employee A told employee B in a phone conversation. Employee B then informed me of this also during a telephone conversation. I have not been notified of this in anyway by my line manger and the first I heard of it was from my colleague. Speaking to ACAS they say that yes this is bad practice but what I want to know is .. .. is this a breach of my confidential
  3. Hello, I am an apprentice who has accidently told someone unintentionally something I saw on something I was given to photocopy confidentially by a line manager. The nature of the document is something that will most likely be available to colleagues in about a months time. With it spilling out, I then had to see the boss to get a 'slap on wrist' warning, where I openly apologised and said it wouldn't happen again as I realised my error. I was then told that there would be a fresh start. But now a few days later they have decided to make a formal investigation out of it, so I have
  4. Hi everyone. I'm looking for some advice regarding what I consider to be a breach of my patient confidentiality. I will try to cut a long story short. I went to my GP for a routine cervical screening procedure. Before my appointment time, I nipped to the loo. As I was making my back through the waiting room, my name was called. Before I reached the nurse I heard her say to a gent in the room "don't worry, I didn't call you, I know your not here for a smear test". I could have died. I don't embarrass easily, but I was mortified. I followed nurse into the treatment room and asked if I'd
  5. Hi there I will try to keep this as brief as possible. I was off sick from work and visited the company Doctor. I was then emailed the report as was my employing manager. It stated the letter was private and confidential and at the bottom of the email it stated it was restricted. This email has now been used in a potential disciplinary investigation against myself. I received the disciplinary papers with this email included, yet some of it had been redacted although not very well as you could still see certain parts of the email, however the nature of my illness had not been redacte
  6. Hi and thanks for any who can help. I raised grievance for bullying, and periodic aggressive attacks on me by secretary (relation to owner). last straw was when the owners "secretary" said she was giving my admin work of home office stuff and staff files to senior care assistant. she is studying her NVQ sorry now QCF level 5. my roles are admin and Activities as per my contact. I have had attacks on me since 2011 but was unable to do grievance until now as 1. did not have employee handbook until 2012. 2. because of aggression 3. changed of matrons' who did not want to deal with my concerns
  7. I have attended a few disciplinary hearings as a 'friend' of the accused and they always state 'you cannot discuss this matter with anyone'. Is this true? It seems a bit odd that you cannot seek advice or gather evidence from witnesses particularly as they threaten gross misconduct if they find out the accused has disclosed anything that happened in their own hearing. Surely the only duty of holding a confidence lies with those conducting the hearing not the accused?
  8. Hi Needing advice here for a good mate. He has been subject to a breach of confidentiality by persons at his work and details of his medical condition and treatment have been leaked causing rumours and malicious talk. He is devastated but working on as there appears no option. He received a letter of apology and admission of the breach from the firm. In it, one of the employees named denied wrongdoing and named members of the public/relations of my friend as being the source. They have been named in several reports as having been the source of part of the breach, but were never con
  9. What happens if the claimant me (currently claiming JSA on the Work Programme) becomes eligible for Pension Credit during the period on the Work Programme? Income increases to full-time minimum wage rates. Do I still have to participate on the Work Programme I have already started with over a year to go? The Work Programme is of no practical use and it includes the possibility of sanctions so I would sooner not be on it as the advice given is not satisfactory. I don't mind working in suitable jobs (still applying) but there is always the question of half suitable jobs whic
  10. Hi there, i have had a account with perfect homes and they harrased me when I got into arrears and as a result once standed out side my door for half a hour threatening to call the police. the fellow resident within the block isnt prepared to make a statement of this. But she did say on the phone to me that she would phone them which I had said in a letter. they then decided to speak about my account to my ex partner and phone my mother who was a reference asking both of them to ask me to get in touch with them as they wanted the dryer back. I feel that this
  11. Hello, not sure where to post this?? I work in the health service and my friend works for a localauthority. We have pooled our skills and experience and started a businessoffering social care. As we have worked in this field for many years, we haveseen that we can help to fill the gaps and deliver a service. In a nutshell, my friend’s employers have suspended him onthe grounds that he has not declared a conflict of interest and that he wasoperating our business while he was being paid to work for them. This is basedon private emails that I have sent him to his work email. All rubbish a
  12. Hi I am writing on behalf of my Son-In-Law who has just been sacked. He is putting together a grevance against 3 of his peers, as well as an appeal against his dismissal. The questions he needs answering are: His company was taken over by another company and he was made to re-apply for the managerial position he allready had, this was by way of an interview and exam, he failed the exam by 1 point and also was told that he didn't have the relevant experience to remain in that role as manager, therfore he was moved sideways but retained the same salary, the person that got hi
  13. Hi all, I work as an administrator within the care sector. One day last week I was working in my office as normal. I went onto the unit to get a cup of tea and was told by a nurse that a member of staff had been suspended. I had absolutely no knowledge of this until the nurse told me. We then (a group of 4) had a light hearted discussion about a previous incident (that I didn't know much about) which we all thought could be the reason for the member of staff getting suspended, and that was it. The same nurse that told me about the suspension, then went and told my manager t
  14. Prior to an office move, I advised HR that I could not do heavy work due to extreme nerve pain and for which I was having Neurosurgery for a few weeks later. This was accepted by them but it was lip service only and I ended up going home in agony and increasing my medication(morphine). My husband complained to HR but I have found out that the HR manager shared this email with another member of staff (finance manager and Company Secretary) They have explained this as needed due to a possible payroll adjustment which is not true as I was no where close to this, and they have said that as comp
  15. Hi all, I have recently gone into my local branch of Natwest to discuss setting up a business account for a new business venture I am looking to set up. The business is in relation to Botox treatment and i was looking to set up a salon with my friend. The branch manager questioned me on what qualifications i needed, who did my training, where my training was, how much it cost etc. I thought at the time this was a bit odd but nevertheless answered his questions. This all took place approximately 1 month ago. Since then the bank managers wife who owns a dental practice near where i
  16. Hello, I would like any advice that you may have regarding a breach of confidentiality by a doctors receptionist. I have a 'friend' who works at a local doctors surgery as a receptionist. I saw her at the local shops today and she came up to me to chat. She started talking about a mutual friend who is suffering with cancer. She went into some detail of how bad things are for this person and how she is now on anti-depressants etc. Before ending the conversation this woman also said to me not to mention it to our friend as she only knows through reading her notes at the surgery. I
  17. Hi, thanks for reading post - look forward, I hope, to your comments! If you were out and about locally where you lived, bumped into a couple of ex colleagues who you had worked with for several years - if they then proceeded - unprompted by yourself - to tell you that, they had recently had an allegation made against them at work, had been investigated, had to attend a susequent disciplinary hearing, the outcome also revealed - which was no case to answer - and also named the person who had made the allegation against them (who you used to work with also and knew well at that time) - wou
