  1. Britain’s banks face the threat of a huge new PPI bill that could add billions of pounds to the £30bn already paid out in compensation, following a court ruling lauded by claims management companies as “hugely significant”. The case opens the door to a renewed claims bonanza as it suggests that even if the PPI policy was not mis-sold, the buyer may still be able to reclaim because the scale of the commissions paid were excessively high. While the ruling does not mean any more cash for people who have already received compensation, it may allow cases that have been rejected to be reconsidered. The ruling is likely to be appealed against but if it stands it presents a fresh PPI nightmare for Britain’s banks, after one claims expert said new payments could run into the tens of billions. Lloyds Bank has so far paid out £18.8bn for mis-sellingicon claims, while Barclays has paid more than £9bn and RBS nearly £5bn. https://www.theguardian.com/money/2018/jul/02/uk-banks-could-face-new-multibillion-pound-claims-after-ppi-ruling

  4. Sick and elderly have to wait outside in all weather in the cold for up to an hour before a GP surgery opens - just to get an appointment. Patients are said to start queuing at around 7am every day, although the surgery doesn’t open its doors until 8.00am. What if you are elderly and living on your own? You can’t expect them to come and queue. It’s disgusting. There are lots of old people standing in the freezing cold in the middle of winter. The system needs to change. There are queues every morning. The surgery should open up its doors earlier and have a ticket system, whereby the surgery doors open early to let them inside that way Sick and elderly are not waiting in the cold. The weather is only going to get colder and colder, please help me draft up a complaint to the surgery to get them to change their ways.
  5. Monopoly chiefs have set up a Christmas hotline to prevent board game bust-ups over the festive period. The helpline is to open in light of a survey that found 51% of Monopoly games end in a row. The most common cause of quarrels was due to people "making up the rules as they go along". The hotline will open from 24th - 26th December, when families will be able to get mediation on any game-based arguments. http://www.itv.com/news/2016-12-19/monopoly-christmas-helpline-opens-to-prevent-boardgame-bust-ups/
  6. British workers may be able to claim for wrongly calculated pay after European court rules on holiday earnings for employees who receive commission Companies could face crippling claims from workers for holiday pay they are owed running back years after a ruling from the European Court of Justice. The court had been considering a claim that workers who receive part of their earnings in commission should be able to have this amount taken into account when holiday pay is worked out, rather than just their basic pay. The case was brought by British Gas salesman Z.J.R. Lock against his employer, arguing that his commission-related earnings do not depend on the amount of time worked, but on the outcome of his efforts. He claimed that because he was unable to generate any new sales or follow up on potential sales while on holiday, this affected the amount he was paid once he returned to work and under European law he was entitled to be compensated for this. A British employment tribunal referred the case to the EU court, which yesterday passed down a preliminary ruling in Mr Lock’s favour. The ruling said: “As British Gas conceded at the hearing, the worker does not generate any commission during the period of his annual leave... In the period following that of his annual leave the worker is paid only reduced remuneration comprising his basic salary. That adverse financial impact may deter the worker from actually taking that leave. More: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/jobs/10850395/EU-ruling-opens-floodgates-for-back-pay-claims.html
