  1. Hi, Just after some advice and opinion. My better half's holiday year runs out at the end of March 19 and her employer operates a "use it or lose it" policy. She has asked for some time off, and they have said that they cannot facilitate her absence due to low staff levels along with others being on leave. They have also informed her that as she cannot use it, she will ultimately lose it. Is this correct and will she have no option but to lose out on leave entitlement, even though its the employer preventing her from using the holiday entitlement? Most years she
  2. I rented out a property in 2017 for 12 months to a lady who had sold her house. Due to a poor credit rating she paid 12 month upfront. It quickly became apparent that she had sold her house to then expect housing benefit to cover the rental at the end of the contract. I served her all the correct paperwork telling her she would have to vacate at the end of the tenancy. She refuses to leave, she is not eligible to the amount of housing benefit to cover the rental. The housing benefit she is receiving she is keeping it herself so is in arrears. Last week we were in Court fo
  3. My GP has said I'm fit to return to work and has signed a sick note to this effect, but my employer's OH doctor recommends my employer commissions a report from a neuro psychologist prior to any return. As I'm fit to return I do not believe I should have to take any delay as annual leave and it can't be classed as sick leave, as I'm considered fit to work. What is the solution? Would this be "garden" leave?

  5. Hi Thanks in advance. I am looking for some help on my current situation at work. I have worked there for more than two years and have not been subject to disciplinary procedures. Last week I handed in my notice. The primary reason I did this was due to leave request being declined. In my letter i stated i would work my notice but would not be working the specific dates i requested. Later on my line manager informed me that i would be leaving the same day and to prepare a handover which i did. This was seven days ago. Since then i have not received any information regarding th
  6. I have been granted a Tier 2 ICT Long Term Leave to Enter Visa valid for the next 5 years. I just wanted to clarify a remark which says 'Restricted'. Just wondering what restrictions apply to me in terms of employment. Can I continue working with my current sponsor and take an additional job in the same profession and at the same level as my main job for up to 20 hours per week?

  8. Please can someone give me some advice with regards to the issue of holiday pay entitlement if a person is working term time only on a zero hour contract? I currently work for a taxi company as a passenger escort for school runs. I work 39 weeks in term time only on a zero hour contract. I am not classified as self employed as I don't run my own business as they provide the work we do and they pay our tax and national insurance contributions. I only started employment with them on the 9th May 2016 and I haven't taken any paid holiday from that date to this year. I have been requesting abo
  9. I am looking for advice I resigned from my job a few weeks ago and have been placed on Garden Leave, I have another 4 weeks to work before starting my new job The problem is I am being put under great stress by my employer, and have been under pressure due to a family death recently to the point I'm not sleeping, not eating and generally affecting both my and my families life. It is that bad I am beginning to question if resigning was the right thing to do despite hating my job, that's how bad it has got. I must be on call during normal work hours should my boss call, and w
  10. Hi All, Please bear with me. I was made redundant over a year ago, and as a single Mum, I've just started my own business, but am still relying heavily on benefits while I find my feet - financially. Our landlady's told us she's selling the house in June and as we've been here for 5 years and are so happy and settled, I'd love to somehow be able to buy it. The house is expected to go on the market for 220K. My mum recently sold her house and has a 30K deposit she can give us and I'm now considering the following options: 1. My ex, who earns a good wage (100K) can 'Buy to

  12. I was offered a temp position for 4 months via a job agency, before accepting the position i asked the job agency to email me the job description so i could double check the job title and job description on email as opposed to just accepting it over the phone from the agency. On the first day of the job I was taken to a different section of the company and not placed in the job role I had accepted from the agency (based on the job description the agency had emailed me) I was placed in totall different section/department nothing at all related to the job I had accepted from the agenc

  14. I had been with Virgin since it started in our area, around 10- 15 years ago, and always found them reliable and the bb was excellent.. Left them in September 16 owing to the appalling TV that didn't even let you watch FREEVIEW channels. Went to BT, and boy I am disappointed, and want to leave. the bb has been off/on, not able to reach sites and my mobile won't connect to BT Lodged a complaint which is still open after 3 months India kept phoning me 3 times a day to check this & that, and I couldn't understand them half the time. Phoning me in work ho

  16. Hi All, Have spent about £40 today hanging on to talk to a hotel chain reception on a premium number. I've still not managed to speak with anyone. Can a service provider just leave you hanging on when you call these numbers? Thanks
  17. Hi all its been a long time since I've posted. I worked at this agency since 2014 and was suspended without pay over a safeguarding issue. Due to stress and anxiety I went on to statutory sick pay and the employer went quiet. I wrote to them recently and they responded that the case is on hold and I have to come off the sick for the case to proceed. At the moment I'm thinking along the lines of an Employment tribunal as I think that they are behaving very unfairly. I don't really want to stay with them over the way that they have treated me but I just don't kn
  18. Hi, Really need a bit of advice before I make a mistake please. I run a small family business, not going to change the world but make enough to take care of life. Two years ago we needed a salesperson. We interviewed and against my better judgement my partner employed a, let's say, "woman of childbearing age" despite the fact that the other best candidate was male and very old, and of an "ethnic persuasion" that I don't think my partner is comfortable with, (that's a whole different story lol!) So, we trained her at great expense to the company in terms of courses, time off, ce
  19. Hi all, Hoping someone here might be able to advise my next step or point me in the right direction. Back in January 2016 I called T-mobile to provide my 30 day notice and request a PAC. I tried to terminate using the webchat but kept being advised that termination needed to be over the phone. I decided against keeping my number as I was receiving so many sales calls and random texts so just took out a new contract with Life mobile. A week or so ago I discovered that T-mobile were still charging me £32 a month, so emailed them for an explanation and a copy of the call wher
  20. I went into a store in Birmingham today. They are a relatively small store, two or three branches at most. I won't name them at this stage. I've been there many times and spent much money. They are really good value. When I entered today the security officer told me that they have a new policy whereby they take your bag (or in my case rucksack) from you and keep it until you leave. I said "No thank you, I will keep it with me." Their response was "Well, you'll have to let me look inside it then." I refused, I continued to browse the store and make my purchas
  21. GERMANY has provoked fury after a much followed TV show, Heute Show, has sent presenter Lutz van der Horst, to the streets of London, campaigning for the organisation called "Krauts for Brexit", which advocates Britain not only leaving the EU but also the Champions League. I don't know what these arrogant Germans want from us, but I tell you what, I'll do the opposite of what the Germans want and I'll vote IN!
  22. I kid you not. I do it all the time, this time there was a trout on the out of date shelf going for the pricely sum of 10p! So I decided to take a photo of it and post it on twitter with the line 10p trout! for a laugh, because I'm a bit silly. No sooner had I taken the photo though before one of the staff came up to me and said he was afraid he was going to ask me to delete the photo as they don't permit taking photos of stock or prices or something. I was like, are you have a laugh mate? Is Jeremy Beadle hiding round the corner? Nope, he was serious and when I said no he the
  23. I find this story quite amusing. The Mother has said she was made to feel like a rubbish mum - but instead of a quiet word of complaint to the Manager/Head office - she rushes off to the Newspaper ? Was the store right to ask the Mother and child to leave ?
  24. Hi, I wonder If someone can give some advice. My friends daughter had her baby a month ago and is on maternity leave. She has worked for her employer for over 6 years. Last week she received in the post a letter from the employer to say they are making her redundant. Are they allowed to do this ?? It is a major company and I'm not sure where she stands with the situation. Thanks in advance for any advice
