  1. Hello, After getting a ‘dream job’ near my home, and hating to travel to/from work on my time, on my second day at work my employer told me they are moving me. I took this job because it was near my home. I wouldn't have taken it had they been honest and told me they were planning on moving me (they had known, they just didn't know where at the time). I took the job knowing there would be travel required to go to meetings. They pay for miles and allow for travel time for any of these meetings. They said my base is remaining as it is, but that I am expected to work four day
  2. I have worked for my employer for 12 years and as they were the only trading Ltd company of a PLC listed on AIM I started to receive several share option packs over the years as part of an Enterprise Management Initiative, however due to the price listed on AIM these were never exercised. About 2 years ago the company swapped all my old share options of 19.6p to equivalent number of 10p options. I thought this was generous and signed the relevant agreement but to this date neither myself of colleagues ever received countersigned copies back. Last year we were subject to a reverse takeover
  3. Hi there, Really needing help with this issue! Currently, i own my own hairdressing business. I employ 4 staff members. One of my staff members had been acting inappropriately at work, e.g bullying other members of staff, personal appearance and attitude, turning up late for work, which forced me to give her a numerous verbal warnings. Almost 4 weeks ago now, she turned up on the busiest day of the week, seemingly under the influence of alcohol, i spoke to her about his and told her she will be given a final warning in form of a letter when she returns and was told to go home for the rest
  4. Hi all, I work for a trade plate car delivery company as a "self employed" contractor, delivering cars up and down the UK. I have 2 issues. They have made what I feel are unauthorised deductions from my wages. First time was a few weeks ago where they deducted £120 for a new tyre, as I had a puncture. This money was docked without warning. More worryingly, they are now trying to charge me £200 odd for supposed damage to a car I was driving, even though I worked on the job with another driver and he also drove the car part of the way. My question is, are they able to make deductions
  5. I damaged my ankle ligaments about 10 days ago playing football. I got it checked out by the hospital the day after, no broken bones but ligament damage. I've had alot of swelling and bruising since so I went to the doctors today and he said I've likely torn my lateral ligaments. He's signed me off work for 2 more weeks as my job involves being on my feet. I was due to go away this weekend on a stag doo to a European city, however I was suppose to be going with about 7 other people from work. I have booked the days off as I was due to work this weekend, but I'm very worried about what man
  6. Hi I'm new at this but would really appreciate any advice anyone has to offer. I am currently on maternity leave, due to return to work in January but I have just been advised that my division is closing at the end of December and all staff are in a 2 week consultation period, after which redundancy notices may be given. I have worked at the same company for nearly 8 years. It's a large company and I'm sure they are well versed with the procedures and I am sure they will keep things above board however i am the only one in my division who is a) on maternity leave and b) only wor
  7. I wonder if anyone can give me some advice. I am defending a claim against a previous employer and the court date is scheduled for early September. They had until yesterday (24 August 2011) to submit / exchange their witness statements for which they have failed to do. What happens next......
  8. Hello and apologies if I'm posting to the wrong section. For the past 4 months, I have been providing consulting services to two individuals wishing to set up an investment managerment company. There is no company as yet, but it has been in the process of being set up for several months (hence I am consulting for the individuals). Here's the problem: I have not been paid despite constant reminders. Every time I ask (by email or verbally), I have been given assurances that 'the money is coming'. I have no written contract detailing terms of consultancy but I have verbal (with witness
  9. Hello, I have known all along that my situation was not right, but I have no idea what to do about it & I'm a little nervous about getting in to trouble! I have been working as a full time, live-in carer for 21 months. When I took the job I was given the impression that it was part-time, but it most certainly is not! I had hoped to carry on my usual self employment along side, but this has been impossible. The day starts at 7am & finishes at 11pm but I am also on call all night. My employer is an elderly man of 93 yrs, partially disabled by a stroke just over 2 years ago
