  1. I worked for TK Maxx and was sacked due to an incident where a customer had come to my till with a jacket priced £39.99 and I had scanned the item and inputted into the system that the customer paid me when he did not (Honestly don't know, I was in a world of my own). Upon seeing a receipt come out of the register I become even more confused as I start to question why a receipt has come out and whether or not the customer had paid me for the jacket, but given the fact that the receipt had come out (I just take that as a sign that he must have paid me) along with
  2. I wonder if any one can help. My husband works as a Chef, he has been working as a chef for over 20 years. he has a medical Condition Called Menierse disease. He has had it about 5 years. It causes him to have attacks where he colapses, becomes extremely, dizzy, vomits and he can’t stand up. He has to take medication when he has a attack and ends up in bed for 3-7days. After an attack he is left feeling very tired. He does not have attacks that often, but they are normally triggered by stress, being over worked and tired among other things. His employer knows
  3. I hope I'm posting this in right place. I hope some one can give me some advice. I work in a small hotel. I'm the Head Chef. We have 2 other chefs working in the kitchen. One of the chefs is known to be very lazy. Likes to take time off saying he is ill when isn't, spends more time playing on phone than working etc. Earlyer this week on the Tuesday I was working with him and he started going on about how he had just got a new xbox and the new call of duty game that had just come out. He started moaning that his friends were already much higher level than him and that he need to catch up.
  4. Hi all, I resigned from my part-time job in Sainsbury's on 4th June 2018 for theft of Nectar points on the till, i.e. crediting my Nectar card with £110 worth of points. I was in absolute bits when I was hauled in and questioned over it because it was only then that it hit me, although at the time of course I knew what I was doing. I was a genuine dickhead for doing what I did because he was a decent manager and I abused his trust. At first the store manager wasn't sympathetic and alluded to the fact that police might be involved. However later on because of the dates (I had be
  5. All Newbie here. I have an employee who owes 6 PDLs approx. £3.5k he cannot pay. He can only afford about £200 per month. As his employer I am prepared to try to pay off the debts, and then recover it from him from his payroll over a couple of years. But we can't afford £3.5k Will the PDLs negotiate? I haven't yet looked into whether they have leant responsibly, but will they accept settlements of the original loan plus an element of interest? His alternative is probably IVA or bankruptcy. Advice Please Many thanks in advance...

  7. Hello, hopefully i am in the right area to ask the question... A ex-employee had stolen nearly £9k from the company and was arrested and charged. He has pleaded guilty and is awaiting sentencing. He has assets namely a house, and obviously we want the money back. According to the police, they aren't sure how the judge will play it awarding compensation or it will be a case of a small amount over X amount of years - providing he doesn't go to prison that is. He could I think go bankrupt when it all comes on top and we want to get in first. There are no charging
  8. I am very ashamed, I have been very stupid and don't know what possessed me. I feel sick and scared, can't eat. This is the first time I have ever done any thing like this, it is not me, so I am very ashamed. I'm 50 female and worked part time . Been working there nearly 2 yrs. I was called into an investigation meeting at work ( i work in a large retail chain) and then a few days later a disciplinary meeting. At the first meeting Firstly, I have been accused of buying online from our store with my discount and then returning without making sure the di

  11. Having been a loyal customer over a number of years every time I wanted to hire a car on holiday. When we were needing car hire from Stuttgart Airport to take us down to the Black forest I contacted Rental Cars. Com for a quote. They quoted a price I found acceptable and booked our hire car, this I found was through a supplier called Europcar. When we arrived at their airport rental desk the lady spoke poor English and after between us completing our hire agreement, she drew on a map to direct us to find our car a long walk away across the airport dragging two large cases and two c
  12. Hi hope you can help A friend of mine works as a seemstress she is Bulgarian & employs a few members of staff to help her in her busy shop. All her employees work as self employed. In October 2015 she employed a woman who doesnt speak English who lives with her daughter who speaks adequate English. My friend asked this person many times to provide her with her tax & NI number so that she could register her for tax. Cut a long story short she refused to give it to her eventually resulting in my friend refusing to pay her the last months wages until she supplied her with the necess

  14. Hi, can anyone offer any advice please? I've been working for this company for over 3 years and disclosed an unspent conviction on my application form, both online and on paper. Earlier this year I had to complete a Disclosure Scotland form and the conviction came back listed. I've had a quick meeting with management but at the time I genuinely thought the conviction had become spent. However, on further investigation, it is still unspent. I've since apologised to managers about my mistake and they said they'd get back to me but have not done so as yet. Does anyone know what the possibi
  15. Hi, I am an employee on a Zero Hours contract. I work with Mr. X and had to take him to court and won the judgement. The 14 days deadline has passed and he is yet to make payment. I have a question about how to approach the working environment with Mr X who I took to court and was awarded the judgement which hasn't been paid. The case took two years to go to court during which time I had to endure being harassed at work. Before the court case, I sought Mediation to avoid court action and complain about being harassed. The meeting was held by my line Manager at work who ch
  16. Hi everyone, I'm hoping all you knowledgable folk on here can offer your assistance . I started a part time job last year. During the interview, I explained that I was looking for part time hours to enable me to pursue a hobby, which I also get paid for, not much but I do it because I love it. I don't claim any credits or anything like that, money isn't everything to me. They were receptive to this and liked hearing about it. They also explained to me that sometimes they may ask that I do some overtime during heavy workload periods, not often, just an hour or so here and there, which
  17. I received a speeding fine , but my ex-employee was driving the vehicle. He was insured as an added driver. The form asks for his driving licence number.I don't have it,and I can't find thex-emplyee. Advice?
  18. Hi Folks - Have been entered for an advanced tree felling course at my place of work , but my employer says if I leave in a certain period - I have to pay back the course . And wants me to sign a document to this effect . Provision and Use of Work Equipments Regs says otherwise I believe and there is nothing about this in my Works contract - yr thoughts ........ Q
  19. Hi everyone, Can anyone help me to quote the right legislation to the Employment Tribunal? I am asking the ET to confirm that I should be administered as an employee rather than self employed. I am paid the same rate per hour as the employees but they get statutory holiday pay and SSP. We all do the same job and report to the same manager. The only difference is the way we are paid. Would there be some claim under the equal pay provisions? I would like the ET to confirm that I am an employee and I would really like backdated holiday pay! Can I claim that and if
  20. Dear All, I made a formal complaint to my housing assoc. about excessive noise made by one of their cleaners (who cleans the communal stairs in the flats where I live, and who I've asked not to make noise before). When I asked the cleaner to stop making such excessive noise, she was rude toward me and I was a bit shaken up about it. When making my complaint to the housing assoc., they suggested that I complain to the police about the cleaner if I thought they'd been aggressive. I declined and said that I thought it was unnecessary to involve the police and that
  21. Hi, All I have not received my P45 from my employee from over a year ago. I asked again yesterday and they said go through a solicitor and they do not want to talk to me. It states on the HMRC website that your employee must give you your P45 by law. I do not think it is fair to go through a solicitor and pay out money to get it. Is there another option for me to get my P45 because the amount I earned is different from what they submitted to HMRC. They said they paid me a wage that works out almost double my original wage and two payments in month. No money went into
  22. Hi I have an employee who 11 months ago admitted dishonesty, and was given a final written warning. I now have reason to suspect that he/she has recently stolen money from the company, and whilst I don't have completely watertight proof, there is sufficient evidence to convince me of guilt. Would my suspicion of wrongdoing be enough to dismiss this employee?
  23. Hi all, Long time lurker, first time poster. I have used this site for good solid advice in the past and thought it was time to give something back. Until last week I worked for Provident and this is an opportunity to ask a former employee anything. I left the company on good terms and am not using this as an excuse to throw mud at my former employer. I will not disclose company secrets and I won't tell you how to get out of paying back a loan that you've taken out. Beyond that I'm happy to answer any questions you may have. Oh, and I realise that this might look a little s
  24. So this is an unsual one on behalf of my sisters boyfriend. Recently, he left his job because he found better employment elsewhere. The job he was in required a months notice. He advised his employers on the Thursday that he would be leaving on the Friday-not 4 weeks notice, but his new job started the following Monday, and quite frankly, its a fact of life that sometimes your new job means you cant work your notice. Unfortunate, but sometimes unavoidable. He told the secretary, who advised that the boss would not be happy, and indeed he was not. He told the person in quest
  25. Some questions: RLP do make reference to the infamous database of apprehended shoplifters (or attempted shoplifters) which they claim to pass on to employers. This is presumably a scare tactic to frighten those into paying the speculative invoice and thus removing their name from this database. Whilst I know due to the DPA the individual must grant authority for a third party to gain access I wanted to query whether this does in fact happen. I know that in certain professions when applying for a job or even to register with recruitment consultants they will ask/ment
