  1. my grnaddaughter was to do work experiace at a doctors surgery but her placement there was refused by her school becuse she is white and they had decided that all such placements would only be available to black pupils. Now the law states that you cant discriminate against any ethnic group but then there is a get out that syas if a particular characteristic or group is under represented you can discriminate. As she wants to be a doctor and has the brains to pass her exams this placement would have been ideal and necessary to get into med school (try applying without such experience and so
  2. Hello. Today I was instantly dismissed. I was handed a letter which stated my contract would terminate immediately but that i would be paid in lieu of notice. The letter (or piece of paper) said there was a variety of reasons. There is no history of disciplinary or any other action which would have given rise to this. I have been there for 3 years. I am on a permanent not a fixed term contract. I was treated a bit like a criminal and escorted off the premises. This was humiliating as there is no rhyme or reason for it. Is this lawful?
  3. My question, I understand this is not a credit agreement however If my Local Authority (LA) has broken the law in an attempt to recover an over payment how can it then use the courts? When it comes to finance:- (1) Failure to comply with the law means that the agreement becomes unenforceable while the failure to comply persists, and the courts have no discretion to allow enforcement. (2) In such cases, a firm should in no way, either by act or omission, mislead a customer as to the enforceability of the agreement. (3) In particular, a firm should not in such cases either thr
  4. Hey there I was wondering about this for some time. If a debt is sold on to another company does that debt have to be paid? I am presently trying to claim back PPI from a loan I took out some years ago. The short story is that I bought a house and then purchased british gas boiler insurance on their initial visit they conned me into getting a new boiler installed. We could not afford to buy one they offered a loan but I was refused because I was medically retired due to an injury and my only income was a pension and benefits. The BG guy then tried ano
  5. Hi, My secured loan from Black Horse is now with Idem Securities. They are being very fair with their acceptance of our situation but insist on regular reviews. It was a secured loan. They are 3rd charge. I am wondering what legal rights they have 'inherited' IF ANY? However, when we tried many years ago to take out a secured loan they wouldn't touch us as the mortgage we have has a draw down facility on it. Also every now and again we get a month or two arrears on mortgage. The secured loan people never chased us. I was expecting them to try and see
  6. Hi, I know next to nothing about Employment Law so hope you may be able to help. A friend of ours, employed by a company set up by Staffordshire County Council and Capita (Entrust Ltd), received a letter yesterday (dated Feb 13th) asking her to attend a meeting today to discuss whether or not she should receive a warning regarding her absences over the past 12 months. Now, my friend has had three absences over the entire 12 months, all accompanied by a doctor's note - 2 lots of sickness and diarrhoea (1 x 5 day and 1 x 3 day absence) and a one day absence
  7. Starting off another thread to get educated responses. We all know about claiming back excess bank charges etc. What i wish to concentrate on are excessive charges within any financial agreement. The Office of Fair Trading decided that charges levied on an account holder for a failed direct debit as an example will no longer be challenged by the OFT if below £12.00. It would be for a court to decide Under laws of contract, a company cannot charge any fees in excess of what it would normally amount to. A computer generated bill for £25.00 for saying a direct debit has bounced will be

  9. We were sitting in a friend's side garden today having a drink waiting to go out. Another of us arrived and as he was getting out the car, a guy in a bad suit came up and asked "Does John Smith live there?" - pointing to a house across the road. Friend explained he was not from the area and suggested he asked the friend I was sitting with - and we could hear everything that had been said. The guy then came up to me and said "I have a parcel for across the road, do you know who lives there?" I suggested if he had a parcel it would have a name on it, to which he said "It's d
