  1. Lay-Z-Boy sell reclining chairs with a15 year warranty on the frame. This warranty is a key selling point. My chair broke within the warranty period and they have been very difficult to deal with. Firstly, they insist on proof of purchase irrespective of how long ago chair was bought. Now, they want me to pay £60 for an engineer to take a look at the chair before they would consider my claim. They are now saying my warranty is void since the present owners of the firm only took over 2 years ago and the retailer who I bought the chair from is now out of business. Wide & Berth springs to mind.
  2. Parked in a lay by in Rugby with double yellow lines on the road not in the lay by and have been issued with a £35 PCN from Warwickshire CC. If you are not allowed to park in a lay by, why are there no signs to say so e g Buses, police, service vehicles only. I have seen many people parked there over the years, so is this entrapment to provide easy pickings for the parking attendants, or is a lay by part of the carriageway or verge that is covered by the yellow lines. I have read a story from where a person in Southend was fined fo rthe same reason then a week later the lines where removed from the road and painted around the lay by will this happen in Rugby. A similar lay by exists less than 200m away with the double yellow lines runing around the lay by. Should I pay Or appeal the PCN?

  4. Hi The company I currently work for as a chef is in the process of being taken over. Our TUPE consultation period has begun but I'm still a little baffled by my rights and what I can expect if this ends up in court:!: The newco have told us they envisage the premises being closed 3/4 months for refit. They have said our options revolve around temporary transfer to one of their other outlets (closest one being a 25 mile journey for me), unpaid leave, lay-off or redundancy. As I see it: -Transfer to another location wouldn't be possible for me. Commuting times, travel costs, added childcare costs etc would make it financially untenable without a substantial pay increase -Unpaid leave, again, would be financially untenable -Redundancy is certainly not my preferred option. They seem to be a good company that offer extremely good training packages and the opportunities for career development would be great. Also, I have only worked for my current employers for 15 months so would be entitled to nothing. -Lay off. As I understand it, because there is no clause in my contract allowing lay off on only statutory guarantee pay I would have to be given my full wages? This, obviously, is my preferred option I guess my questions revolve around: -If I ask for lay off at full pay do they have to give it to me? -If I refuse the offer of work at one of their other outlets do I weaken my position or indeed invite forced redundancy? -If I where to be made redundant would I have a case for unfair dismissal? Sorry for all the questions. Sorry for the rambling! Thought I had all this figured out yesterday, starting to worry the more I read:!:
  5. A friend of mine has worked for the same constuction company for 6 years. On Monday he was handed a written contract for him to sign (he never had a written contract or Statement of Employment Particulars before) which includes "The Company reserves the right to introduce a period of temporary lay-off without pay where necessary". Can they do this?
