  1. Hello everyone, I'll try and explain my issue as best as I can. After many years as a stay at home mum I finally found a job for a small company local to me. I started on January 26th 2015 and my trial period ended on April 26th 2015. On May 6th I was taken ill and ended up having an ECG scan and had emergency blood tests. I kept my employers in the loop and they seemed understanding. A few days later I was still quite unwell and told them I'd need a few more days. They understood and asked me to let them know. However on Friday 15th I received an email from the owner of the company saying t
  2. I'm really not sure if anyone can help me on this, but it is Ingeus related however there is a good side. So as some of you maybe aware I am with Ingeus and I am having problems, long story short my advisor put me forward for a pre-screening in a factory, I have worked there before, he didn't know this because the CV on their system is over 1 year old. He tried to inconvenience me by doing this. But he has done me a massive favour. I attended the pre-screening yesterday, which was run by Ingeus staff. NOT the company. I passed, Ingeus have put me forward and my real interview is with
  3. Hi All, Really hope i can get some good solid advice here. I work for a Electrical company & redundancy only applies to site operatives. Not Supervisors or office staff. 18 Months ago the company i work for put out a risk of redundancy to staff and cut the hours to the basic (38hr), Thankfully things picked up and everything returned to normal with only 1 lay off. After that scare i thought i try and start my own business while still working, was working nights so it made it possible to do so. Spoke to the MD of the company about my plan and he seemed fine. Requested to b
  4. First off I have got to say I like my job and don't want to be too difficult but it is likely that I may be fired and for financial reasons I need to delay this as long as poissible. Background is I was diagnosed with secondry cancer 2-3 yrs ago and on Thursday was told that it had spread to my brain. Going to have radiotherapy and am entitled to 3 my full pay then ssp. I was off sick for about 9 months at first and then returned to work and apart from 1 week last yr and a few odd days (and I do mean a few pos 6-10) have had no sick leave in the last 2 yrs. My company were excellent and hav
  5. Hi all, I started a new job about 4/5 weeks ago but it isn't going well. Its very timed and speed focused and I just CANT get to the speed they want/need their employees to achieve. Other trainees are managing this. I can't see how I can improve myself anymore (it's a physical job and I get the feeling that my previous 5 year desk job hasn't aided me in moving to this kind of situation) so feel like dismissal is going to be inevitable. What I'd like to get an opinion of is whether I should quit or should I wait to be dismissed. I'm very tempted to 'just' quit as it's really stressing me

  7. Rich Ricci, one of Barclays' top bankers, told MPs that the bank has fired five out of 13 people "disciplined" over the Libor scandal - but that many had already moved on. The bank is attempting to rebuild its reputation after being fined a record £290m in June for manipulating the London interbank offered rate (Libor), used used to fix the cost of borrowing on mortgages, loans and derivatives worth more than $450 trillion (£281 trillion) globally. After launching its own investigation, Barclays “terminated” five of 13 people disciplined, Rich Ricci, head of Barclays’ investment banking
  8. Last night I forgot to set my alarm, with the result that this morning I was an hour late for work, arriving at 8 instead of 7. I've been late before, but not often: last time was a month ago, and the time before that was so long ago I forget exactly when, maybe in May... This shouldn't be a big deal: everybody's late sometimes, but my manager started giving me a dressing down this morning over it. I objected to this, because he himself is ALWAYS late EVERY morning. He has been over 5 hours late on one occasion (drunk the night before), and we had to cover for him. He regularly arrives
  9. Hi everyone. I work for a corporate, about 6 years now. Twice I've been sent to college by company. Finished twice with the highest grade. I have good record at work with relation to overall performance (attendance, sick, always on time, never refused to do my job etc). On Friday I've been approach by manager asking me to do some more hours to which I replied "no thanks". Minute later my colleague ask me why I am not interested in doing extra hours to which I replied "I have work my ass off for this company for the last 5 years, spent my free time on getting educated, when I could
