About Me


  1. I have read the stickys and I see that a lot has changed since last time I did this. ParkingEye have recorded me overstaying in a shopping estate car park and have issued me with an £85 fine (reduced in paid quickly). I am wondering if anyone has had success by providing evidence that they were genuinely in the shop for the time period shown, busily purchasing away! Essentially I was in costa and can show from my bank statements that I bought a lot of coffees whilst I was there working (oblivious as I was to the time restriction). Is this worth appealin
  2. I will do my best to ask my question without making it too complicated. I have 14 separate diagnosis. I live currently in the home I raised my children in, which was recently transferred from the council to a housing association. All my children have left home. I have carers coming in to help with personal care and domestic tasks and taking me out into the community, i.e. shopping, coffee out, for 7 hrs per week, the remainder of the time I am at home, in doors and extremely lonely. It is having a real impact on some of my diagnosis. I have a friend that is returning from outside the
  3. Hi All, This is an employment tribunal question, not sure if it belongs in this section. I am helping a friend with doing some research on how to draft and formulate grounds of appeal to EAT. The case relates to a claim for discrimination and victimisation against his ex employer which he lost some months ago. He was a litigant in person. One of the grounds of appeal he wants to submit is that the Tribunal was bias against him from the onset due to the fact that (we found this out after that the trial) the Respondents lawyer, a Barrister, is also a part time ET Judge.
  4. Hi, The gym is called Ultimate Physique in a town called Castleford. - No water supply in the gym which in these conditions is just unacceptable - No air conditioning in the gym so in warm weather working out is unbearable and in the winter when working out on the first floor it's so cold you struggle to sweat - The duration of my contract is 36 months with I believe is classed as an unnecessarily long contract under Consumer Rights Act 2015 - The penalty to cancel my membership is £10 x by the remaining months, which is 19 in this case. - Is this also an unfair term in my
  5. Not sure if this is the correct section to post,so mods,please move it if necessary. What chance has my wife of suing our local council for causing her stress?? My wife and I own a flat that we have put up for sale.It is empty and ready to move into,having just been decorated and carpeted throughout. We have had over 15 viewers since mid january,but all have said that although the flat is nicely presented,the upstairs flat puts them off buying ours. The flat above ours has 3 smashed windows at the front,and 2 smashed windows at the back.There is also a pile of discarded furniture on
  6. Hi, Hope I'm not breaking any rules here , And that I've posted in appropriate section and see past my bad punctuation and grammar . On 31/01/17 Kidderminster morrisons 7:10pm upon leaving store I was confronted by manager and two members of staff ,apparently they had reason to believe I had been stealing. Asked to view my bag. Shocked I gave the manager my bag he didn't even check items which I thought strange .next hands me bag back and then says I was caught shoplifting two three days ago and thrown out of store. Now I'm gob smacked. He confirms this again twice with female member of staf
  7. Writing on behalf of partner Employment Start date Jan 2016 At time of employment a disability was disclosed at the screening process and a full assessment was carried out by the DWP access to work team who advised a footrest and cushioned adjustable chair for the sciatica. The employer employed on this basics. A year into the employment no support or help has been provided by the employer and to date no specialist chair or footrest have been supplied. The employer is a national company and the working environment is high paced, at times when the employee has been in pain
  8. Hello all I'm sorry for requesting assistance, but I have a situation which is making me lose sleep. in 2015, my company announced it would be buying another company, and the deal would close in March 2016. In Feb 2016, my manager at the time told me that following the deal, she would no longer be my direct manager, but would be a key stakeholder. My reporting line would change. Immediately after that call, I had a call with a lady who I was led to believe (and still believe will be) was to be my new manager, and she was coming from the acquired company.
  9. Hi guys, I'm wondering if you can help. On 29/08/2015 I apparently entered some kind of toll road in London that's subject to this Dart Charge. It wasn't very clear to me at the time so I literally had no idea about it. They sent me a letter dated 16/12/2015 explaining that I needed to pay a PCN, which was £70, or £35 if paid within 14 days. The only problem is that they sent it to my old address (which to be honest is entirely my fault as it seems I haven't updated the DVLA. The only reason I have the letter is that the person living in my old house knows where I work and dropped it
  10. About 10 days ago I parked on a double yellow, and got booked by the traffic warden from the council. Can an empty ticket be a reason for appeal? I've had this ticket in my pocket since and by some weird coincidence, all the details except the date and traffic number came off, including the reason of the contravention (the basics such as reg number, ticket reference, date and amount are on the payment slip though which is attached to the ticket, but there's nothing on the ticket itself; might have to rub it against the pocket to get that off too ). Would this i
  11. Hi, I have been suspended from work after I made a complaint about my manager, basically I had to be investigated for being late to work, on the day in question I was very unwell and couldn't get the bus due to having no money, I walked to work and was a little late. My manager sent an email to the person doing the investigation stating that I am a confrontational person and the person doing the investigation should have a witness present for their own protection. This email was shown to me and I naturally complained as it is a slanderous email and it suggests I would get violent
  12. Hi guys (again), I hope somebody can help with this. I've just got a parking ticket from Wandsworth Council (again) for being "parked in a special enforcement area adjacent to a dropped footway, cycle track or verge lowered to meet the level of the carriageway". At that moment I was doing a big removal (Ashvale Rd, SW17) and as you can see from the photos there was no chance to park my van anywhere on that road so I parked right on the kerb (it was the only place to do it). I don't feel really confident with this one but just wanted to hear what do you have to say about this.
  13. In simple I set up an ad hoc business collection with RM, they failed to collect when promised, failed to collect the next day and again on the third day. At which point I asked for a refund. 14 days later and no refund has been received, no contact of any type either regarding the refund or to apologise for the lack of collection or an explanation from them and to rub salt in the wound £20 of call charges to a premium number. Had they come and collected I would of accepted these and learnt from the mistake but as we stand I am the best part of £40 out of pocket and pretty annoyed. I ha
  14. Hi I wonder if you can help, I think this forum is amazing and I would appreciate some advice please. Can a Respondent use the Henderson and Henderson argument of abuse of process (ie: you can't get a second bite of the cherry) if the claim was referred to before but only at a preliminary hearing and not in the ET1 but as a head of loss on the Schedule of Loss and was dismissed during the case management orders? (That claim went to a full hearing and I won the right to receive occupational sick pay instead of SSP.) At that first preliminary hearing the Judge told me to "put a claim i
  15. Hi Guys I need to submit reps for a parking ticket I received. I was out for the day and while I was out one of my family members found my spare car keys and drove to the shops. When I returned in the evening I found my car parked as I'd left it in the driveway with a PCN attached to the window. I've uploaded the ticket and would appreciate your guidance on submitting my initial reps. Are there any errors in the PCN?
  16. Hi everyone Sorry to be the newbie posting only for the first time! I would really like some advice on what to do with regards to an employment situation. I work for the NHS and have 4 years accrued service. I have always been a loyal, hardworking employee, and have rapidly progressed through the ranks. I started a new job a few weeks ago, and after 2 weeks, I had burnt out and was signed off work for depression and anxiety - I've not been well at all. The role was not right for me, i.e. I could not do it. I was sent to occupational health yesterday who wrote on the report
  17. I recently came back to my car to find I had a PCN contravention code "46 - Stopped where prohibited (on a red route or clearway)". I have 2 possible grounds for appeal. Firstly, I was in a bay which normally allows parking when purchasing a teicket from a machine (which I did) but there was a temporary, flimsy "no waiting" sign attached to a nearby lamppost (which I did not spot). Does this count as stopping illegally under code 46 as it wasn't a red route or clearway? Secondly, the temporary sign was high up on the lamppost and facing parallel to the road. Is this the correct
  18. I bought a train ticket off the Southern Website with my 16-25 Travelcard, for £6.55. Today when I arrived at the barriers at Victoria, the inspector asked to see my Travelcard and I produced my photocard. He asked where the rest of it was and I didn't know what he was talking about - I'm fairly certain that when I bought my travelcard that was all I got. He issued me a £30 fine and asked me to pay £15 on the spot, but as I had no cash on me he said I could pay it all at once in 21 days. Now he said that if I can prove that I wasn't given the other half of the travelcard then I'll
  19. I'll try to keep this brief. I have been tested by a specialist and a hospital to have carpal tunnel syndrome in both wrists. I have been getting sick notes regularly and put on a waiting list for the necessary surgery, and have been prescribed Amitriptyline, which clearly advises not to operate machinery if drowsy. At a ATOS medical I told the Gestapo doctor that I felt it would be dangerous for me (carpenter) and others if I have limited feeling in my hands and are drowsy, Now I'm no doctor but I can see that being a liability. ATOS concluded I was fit for work. I natura
  20. Hi Folks, Apparently PATAS only allow six grounds for appeal - otherwise they throw out your appeal automatically. Have searched the PATAS website but cannot find any info on this. Can anyone provide a relevant link? Cheers, Art
  21. hi i need some advice: ive had parkinsons for 13 years now and have been on a 3 year renewal on my driving licence.Last july i sent off my renewal as usual and heard nothing but 3 letters over the next 8 months saying they were dealing with and i could continue driving.Then last week i got a letter saying they had revoked my licence on medical grounds. I rang the dvla and they say it was revoked because of a report they received from my consultant,i asked for a copy and they said i have t write in (ive done this).I also made an appointment to see my consultant who hasnt seen me for ten ye
  22. They are probably going to get rid of me but could I take them to a tribunal over this. The facts are: asking me to get a fit note 4 months after the time i had off (they had never asked me for a note before as they had my medical records) They tell me they lost my medical records and that's why they need a fit note for that period. They accussed me of not contacting them during a 4 week period that I had a fit note for. I have evidence of that accusser responding to my emails regarding illness I was told I had to resupply medical records or face gross misconduct I w
  23. Good Morning....... Wonder if anyone can give me any information or help as I am in a sticky situation. I will try and keep it short. Basically just over 2 years ago I had an accident at work doing something that I was asked to do. I started work as a teamleader over 7 yrs ago at a distribution warehouse. I was off for six weeks as I did extensive damage to my ankle tendons etc. They did'nt pay me full pay so I put in a claim and won. Now over 2yrs later the situation is this. We have just merged with another company. They are resigning all job roles on the one to one they said that I wo
  24. Hi, A few years ago I put in a claim for my overdraft charges to be refunded. Like a lot of other people my case was frozen during the OFT ruling and then null and voided by the judgement. For a large portion of the period 2002 - present I was suffering from ill health and claiming benefits, punctuated with sporadic periods of employment. In 2006 this got worse as i suffered the loss of a family member which cause me to have a nervous breakdown. The only money I had coming in was my benefits, and my overdraft charges were paid with a portion of my state benefits (which is just what t
  25. I am a support worker working with nhs for 7 years. I have had numerous sickness with depression, for which i have had for 30 years, and a back problem. I returned back in march on a staged return and at mt sick review was put on stage 2. I have had no sickness with these 2 debilities since then. I did have some sickness with irritable leg syndrome. I was put on strong medication to help this, but it only caused my insomnia. I had about 4 or 5 days sickness with this. This problem is now resolved through myself researching it and finding out it was a magnesium deficiency. So no sickness
