  1. Has the UK got the continuing-violations doctrine in its Laws. I was under probation with a company and I raised H & S issues. A lot of documented bullying occurred. My employment was later terminated and the director cited the contract I signed in which they have the right to terminate my contract without reason. Much later after the expiration of the time limit for the Tribunal I made a Subject Access Request. I discovered that my line manager has been telling lies about me all this time. And these are lies that are easily disputable (Like I was found sle
  2. Just 3 months ago I started a new thread on here to highlight the problems that debtors face when taking advice from the internet to issue court claims against bailiff companies or local authorities. In that thread (a copy of which is below) I highlighted the outcome of yet another court failure where the debtor once again lost his case in court and was ordered to pay the local authorities (London Borough of Southwark) legal costs of £4,399. In the above case it was revealed that the debtor was charged £2060 in fees by this highly unqualified McKenze Friend who has an appalling history o
  3. I note that two cases relating to Private parking are listed at Edinburgh Sheriff Court for tomorrow the 15th January. VCS V Flexistore limited and VCS V Gilbert Reilly The outcome of these will be very interesting assuming they are properly defended. An undefended Judgement will of course prove nothing other than give VCS the opportunity to use their victory as a further scare tactic.
  4. I lost an appeal in November last year and costs were applied £750 - I appealed and this hearing was heard within another hearing Civil Case on Jan 4th 2014 - The Judge awarded the claimant £7,123 - off which £5,000 of this was costs. He mentioned something about only allowing certain sum of costs. I could not pay - single parent on benefits and offered £5 a month - this was refused so I applied for a redetermination hearing which was heard in March 2014. I informed Judge I had a caravan old tower 1997 that I could sell worth about 2k. Advertised on 8 sit
  5. 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
  6. I have attended a few disciplinary hearings as a 'friend' of the accused and they always state 'you cannot discuss this matter with anyone'. Is this true? It seems a bit odd that you cannot seek advice or gather evidence from witnesses particularly as they threaten gross misconduct if they find out the accused has disclosed anything that happened in their own hearing. Surely the only duty of holding a confidence lies with those conducting the hearing not the accused?
  7. On the 13th October 2012 I was travelling (with my son) under common law along a Dual Carriageway, through a non residential area at a speed appropriate for the conditions. At no time on the dual carriageway were there any speed restriction signs. I came upon two policy enforcement officers hiding in the bushes with a speed camera. They pulled me over at the end of the dual carriageway to attempt to gain jurisdiction over me. I was adamant that no crime or traffic acts had been broken and the officers had no business pulling me over. With the policy enforcers getting increasin
  8. Hi all, Please can you help me. Briefly, we took out a car loan in September 2008 with Black horse, never missed a payment until January this year, which was due to my hubby having a serious accident at work and being on crappy sick pay for 4 months. The monthly payments are £291.06 a month. During this period we wrote to black horse several times informing them of our situation and explaining that we couldnt afford the monthly payments but could pay something towards it but not the full amount. They never responded.....until April when they sent a letter informing us that we are 4 m
  9. I have just received notification that my appeal tribunal hearing is scheduled for 02/08/12 I was initially informed that the appeal would most likely not be held before 01/10/12 this has left me in a fix, I have not gathered all the evidence yet, and as it has to be presented to the court 7 days in advance this leaves me just over one week! I am trying to get through to the tribunal service, does anyone know if they will postpone the hearing under the circumstances? EDIT I have got through and they have told me to e mail them and ask for a postponement fingers crossed!
