  1. My GP has said I'm fit to return to work and has signed a sick note to this effect, but my employer's OH doctor recommends my employer commissions a report from a neuro psychologist prior to any return. As I'm fit to return I do not believe I should have to take any delay as annual leave and it can't be classed as sick leave, as I'm considered fit to work. What is the solution? Would this be "garden" leave?
  2. We eat chicken, lamb, duck and beef, to name a few, so why not dog ?
  3. Following on from the Tesco bans Ribena, I thought this might appeal to your collective taste buds.
  4. Hi, I recently had costs awarded against me at a PHR. I had not been expecting this. I am picking up the pieces now after the shock of it all. A good friend referred me to this forum and to some recent posts about costs, in particular the fact that the employer is not allowed to charge more than £33 ph for preparing for the hearing. Mine charged £110 ph - this was not challenged by the judge. They also included external solicitor's costs on top. If I apply the £33 limit it works out that I will be paying more in costs than the employer was allowed to claim for. I am incensed by this! What can I do?
  5. Hi everyone, back in March last year I had an ET hearing for constructive unfair dismissal breach of contract disability discrimination. The case failed on grounds of no discrimination having taken place even though I was found to be disabled! I then applied for review of judgement (not granted) An appeal was submitted to the Employment Appeals tribunal, from a solicitor (not granted) I now have 1 hour, oral hearing in front of the EAT judge (respondent not present) in London early next year (to persuade the judge to allow the appeal in) I have been advised that I need prepare a bundle (much shorter than the previous ET bundle) and prepare a skeleton argument. I have until mid December to get all the paperwork into the EAT. I am not too sure as to the process and preparation of the case and am handling it myself. I would be very grateful for any help from the more experienced Caggers. Many thanks Best wishes BB
  6. Basically trying to prepare for a 3.10 hearing and need guidance on the following: Does a new point of law and fresh evidence need to be presented at the hearing or prior to the hearing? Can a similar case successful at an employment tribunal be cited where exactly same policy was relied on and the organisation is the same? Is it acceptable to file extract of policy documents in the bundle rather than entire policy documents in order to comply with 100pages requirement.
  7. I have recently submitted an application to the employment appeal tribunal on legal grounds, perversity and bias. The ET did not follow the law, the decision was totally perverse, and the judge had connections with the employer and the defence who is also an employment law judge. I am still awaiting response to the application and have been informed that this has been looked at by four judges and is awaiting a fifth judge. From what I read this is normally only looked at by the judge or registrar at the EAT. Is it normal for five judges to look at it before making decision as to avenue it takes? Why are five judges looking into it?
  8. Hi, I have to submit an appeal against a judgement - two claims struck out and a costs award. The judgement itself was very brief (one page!) and there is no explanation as to how the level of costs were arrived at and how they relate to each claim. I would hope to have this information for the EAT hearing, but am I entitled to ask the Tribunal for it?
  9. Heads up anyone wanting to eat Cockles: Cockles from a Lancashire estuary have been found to contain dangerous levels of E.Coli and environmental officials have warned they should not be eaten. Trade in Ribble cockles has been banned until further notice by West Lancashire Environmental Health Department. Foulnaze Bank fishery, which was closed due to large numbers of unlicensed cocklers, had been due to reopen on 25 July. It will now remain closed until contamination levels decrease.

  10. I believe that three have just started throttling me as of last night 25th May 2012. I’m so sure of it, my next door neighbor and college at work are on Three and they easy hit 3.5mbps at work and 6mbps at home I'm now at I’m at 00.02 to 00.20mbps which is near useless I average 20GB per month. I've complained over the phone and still super slow. I don't torrent, file share, P2P, or do any of those things its 99% YouTube and NetFlix http://www.three.co.uk/Discover/Phon...u-can-eat_data http://ask3.three.co.uk/srvs/cgi-bin...ile:mobileUser They are encouraging you to spank it. Typical evening usage by me is 19.30 about 30 minutes of YouTube 20:00 WoW (which so low in its usage its almost playable over dial up) 22.00 in bed watching either a TopGear or Mythbusters episode the sleep time. I've averaged about 20GB per month for the last 3 months. I think they are in violation of contract as they are not stating any fair usage policy And are miss selling as well.
  11. Hi,I ordered some food from a local restaurant this Saturday for my wife and I as we'd had a quiet night in and had become peckish. It was quite late in the evening around 1-2am so I was surprised a decent restaurant was still open at that time. I made my order and after waiting an hour and fifteen minutes I assumed as I also had not received a confirmation of the order from Just Eat, that the restaurant had closed and my order hadn't gone through. I tried calling the restaurant several times and as no one answered, I went to bed.On Monday morning I received a receipt via email from just eat for the order. So I contacted their customer services department to find out whether I'd been charged for this non existent order.I received the following emails:From: Just-Eat.co.ukSent: 29 May 2012 14:41To: AlexSubject: RE: Payment queryHi,Thank you for your email. I apologise for the experience you have had.Unfortunately, the relevant member of staff we need to speak with arecurrentlynot at work so we are unable to discuss this matter with them. We willcontactthe restaurant at the requested time of 6pmto confirm this and therefund. Wewill email you back with the refund details, I thank you for patience.Kind regards,SalihaCustomer Care AdvisorJust-Eat.co.uk LtdImperial Place 4Maxwell RoadBorehamwoodWD6 1JN0844 243 7777-------------------------------------------------------Hello,Thank you for your patience with this matter.I have spoken to the restaurant about this order, and they haveconfirmed thatthis order was delivered.The restaurant have advised me that when this was delivered the peoplewhoaccepted this order were quiet heavily intoxicated.As the restaurant are confirming that this order was delivered they arenotwilling to refund this.As all restaurants are individually owned all compensation and refundswouldneed to be agreed by them directly, if you do not agree with theoutcome then itis advised you contact the takeaway to see if they can compensate youfurther.Kind regardsSophieCustomer Care AdvisorJust-Eat.co.uk LtdImperial Place 4Maxwell RoadBorehamwoodWD6 1JN------------------------------------------------------From: Sent: 30 May 2012 08:55To: Just-EatSubject: Re: Payment queryHi,Many thanks for getting back to me regarding this.I am very surprised that the restaurant would make such a claim asneither I nor my partner drink, due to religious reasons, and I doubtour 4 year old daughter would have answered the door heavilyintoxicated!I believe if they really did complete the delivery it they must havedelivered to the wrong address.How can I go about getting a refund as this is completely unacceptableand I really do not have the time to be chasing up the restaurant,especially if it is going to be my word against theirs.I would have thought as the food was ordered via your website, if acustomer makes a complaint regarding a failed delivery it would be yourresponsibility to chase that up with the restaurant and refund thecustomer. If I do end up having to pay for this non-existent take away,I will be very reluctant to use just-eat again.I hope to hear back from you soonBest wishesAlex-----------------------------------------------Hello, We have spoken with the takeaway and unfortunately they will not be offering any refund for this order as they are adamant this order has been delivered, there is nothing further we can do in regards to this. If you disagree with this outcome you will need to contact the restaurant on 02076043333. We are sorry that we have been unable to help in this matter. Please feel free to seek independent advice or contact the takeaway directly. If you are unhappy with this response, please forward your complaint to Kind regards,ShahinaCustomer Care AdvisorJust-Eat.co.uk LtdImperial Place 4Maxwell RoadBorehamwoodWD6 1JN0844 243 7777-----------------------------------------------------------------------I've contacted the restaurant who will not give me a refund as they state they delivered the food, and I haven't heard back from Just eat since emailing their complaints department, where I emailed them the following:In regards to their response I appreciate that you have contacted the restaurant and what they have said, but if the restaurant denies me a refund after I've spoken with them, then what exactly is the next step? Do I just accept that I've been robbed by them and get on with it?Surely if that is the case and the restaurant refuses, then your company would be liable as the middle man for recommending the restaurant on your website as trustworthy, and then allowing them to technically [problem] people out of money whilst using your company name.If I purchase goods through amazon and the merchant does not deliver the goods, amazon refund the customer and chase it up with the merchant. This should not be down to me to have to waste my time chasing up a restaurant that is at this point obviously going to deny me a refund, after they've already denied you.As a customer whose friends and family regularly use your website, I must say I am very disheartened with the service I've received.I also still cannot believe that it has not yet occurred to anyone that they may have delivered to the wrong address, and as they have stated below, those that answered and accepted the food were inebriated and I can imagine would have quite gladly accepted a pre-paid pizza.As far as I am concerned I have paid for good/services via your site and have not received what I have paid for and I would like my money backAlex-------------------------------------------Now I have absolutely no idea on how to sort this? Any suggestions?All I know is that I certainly won't be using just-eat ever again and I'll be passing my complaint onto trading standards.
