  1. Four unknown soldiers killed during WW1 are laid to rest with full military honours READ MORE HERE: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/four-unknown-soldiers-killed-during-ww1-are-laid-to-rest-with-full-military-honours
  2. Hi A close friend has just been told by his employer that he is being laid off because they do not have enough business coming in. he was told last friday and asked to leave the same day. He was also told that he would be paid from the 1st to the 8th of June and nothing else. His contract states nothing at all about being laid off. Only termination which they would provide 1 week's notice. My friend has only been in the job for just over 2 months as he was lured away with promises of development and payrises etc. He was in his previous role for 4 years . Is there something that can be done in this kind of situation? With him being laid off, are they meant to provide a P45? Im guessing this is a No since he is technically still employed by the company? Thanks in advance WS

  7. my friend has worked for the same firm for 27 years and was getting bullied for the last couple he went to see the owner and told him various times that he could not work with the person involved it came to a head last week and he told the boss on the Wednesday he couldnt carry on the boss told him to go home and think about it as as far as he was concerned it was all in my friends head and if he wanted to fetch someone in he would discuss it further. he worked that day and on Thursday decided to go home after turning up for work and think about things, that night his boss put a letter through his door terminating his employment stating that he was no longer doing his job properly and he was finished. He went to see the boss on the Fri morning and the boss wouldn't see him is this unfair dismissal he was also told he wasn't entitled to anything either. do you think he has a claim for unfair dismissal
  8. Hello everyone, I'll try and keep it quick as it is a bit of a headache. July 2014 started working for a small local business. No contract signed. Dec 2014 found out I was pregnant. Jan 2015 told employer I was pregnant. We discussed my Maternity Leave starting on July 3rd. I tried to make all of my maternity appointments on days I was not working, even changing midwives. Due to my health this was not always possible. I had a few sick days in Jan / Feb due to pregnancy illnesses and depression. Feb 2015 prescribed 25mg Amitriptyline which was doubled to 50mg after 7 days. Also prescribed Codeine and referred to a physio for PGP. My boss knew all of my health issues. 16th March signed off for depression from 16th-23rd March. On 23rd March my boss text me to ask why I wasn't in work, I tried explaining that the sick note was inclusive of 23rd and I would be back following shift which was on the following weds. He said I was wrong and phoned his gp who said I should have been back at work that day than phoned my GP who said my next day at work was Wednesday. The text messaging went bck and forth for a little while and actually made me very ill that day. I went back to GP that day who was not happy my boss had phoned his surgery and signed me off again and said it was inclusive of dates and if I didn't feel any better by following Friday than to go in and see him again. 23rd March signed off for depression from 23rd - 30th March. Friday 27th March went back to see my GP as my depression was getting worse and Amitriptyline was doubled again to 100mg. Text my boss to say I had been signed off for another 2 weeks (27th March to 10th April) I text my boss to say I had been signed off and he text back saying he needed sick notes that day and I also needed to phone him. I phoned him that afternoon and he said he was in a bit of a predicament and he either needed to reduce my shifts to one day a week or lay me off. The discussion ended up going in the direction of me being 'laid off'. I specifically asked him if I was being fired or made redundant and he said 'no, you are being laid off. it's different'. The conversation was quite amicable, he knew I wasn't well and I think he was genuinely concerned for my health. I said on the phone I understand his situation and I would be leaving soon to go on maternity leave. There was no discussion about any notice or when my final day was, I assumed it was that day. On 2nd May I received my p45 in post with a couple of old payslips and a payslip dated 4th April with SSP payment and an overpaid holiday deduction. I have not received this final pay. Can I ask him to send me this in a cheque? We used to get paid cash weekly on a Friday for hours worked that week and I was once paid by cheque as he didn't have enough cash on him to pay. The p45 also has my leaving day down as 4th April and is dated 2nd April. I have had no contact with my previous employer since that conversation on 27th March. My boyfriend took my sicknotes down to him on 27th March as I just couldn't face it. I really want to have as little contact with my previous employer as possible, the whole situation made me worse when I was already quite ill and I am starting to get better and don't want to do anything to knock me back down or affect my health or the babies health. Can I text him to ask him to send me a cheque for the final pay amount? I really don't want to talk to him as I have been worrying since I got my p45 on Saturday. I didn't even realise I was owed and SSP and tbh I could really do with it now as I have no income until I get my Statuary Maternity Allowance in a few weeks. Thank you all for reading my post x
  9. Hi legal gurus, My girlfreind recently got laid off alongside some others at work. Frustratingly she knew they'd never be reemployed, however long story short this meant she got no job seekers allowance for some time and basically caused her a lot of grief - they didnt give a damn. They were basically trying to liquidise the company, get out of paying their contractors, cut staff where lehgally possible and start over again as a new name with no debts in their name. She was owed over two weeks pay, which the company said she 'may' get back when the liquidation questionaire came through. Well, shes had a letter this week saying that she will not be getting anything. What is her next course of action? This company is now trading under a new name, with the same staff and directors, writing off any previous debts and commitments by doing this, all their previoust contractors who do work for them also wont get paid. Im making sure the contractors all know their new name so they can avoid them like the plague! Letter attached: http://picturepush.com/public/12757695 http://picturepush.com/public/12757716
  10. My employer laid me off today, with the minimum 'Guaranteed pay' however this assumes I am unpaid. I have nothing in my contract about reduced pay, or in fact being laid off and get more than the minimum guaranteed pay day to day. As per this https://www.gov.uk/lay-offs-short-timeworking/overview It states I should recieve full pay. What does this mean exactly? PAy every day im not int he office or pay only when asked to come in - how can they string me along for 3 months without work?
