  2. What is the consensus on the grace periods the BPA have in their CoP ? The latest BPA CoP from january 2018 says this - 13.1 If a driver is parking without your permission, or at locations where parking is not normally permitted they must have the chance to read the terms and conditions before they enter into the ‘parking contract’ with you. If, having had that opportunity, they decide not to park but choose to leave the car park, you must provide them with a reasonable grace period to leave, as they will not be bound by your parking contract. 13.2 If the parking location is one
  3. Hi, my shift pattern includes shifts which require me to work periods greater than 6 hours. There are no in built breaks within these shifts. I have approached my employer about this issue and their response was that they have a workforce agreement in place and therefore they can exempt section 12 of the WTR under section 23 of the WTR. My guess is that they can also exempt section 12 under section 21 as the job is a special case as described in section 21. What I think they have missed is the effect of section 24 WTR on both sections 21 and 23 and their duties in regard to that;
  4. I have a query about probation periods. I started employment 10 month ago and was told the first 6 months are my probation period then I have to get signed off. I have still not had letter of confirmation that I have been signed off. Contacted HR and they said that they are waiting on signed probation form from my boss before I can access company benefits etc. My boss has contacted me once over this but did not reply to my email about a meeting. Where do i legally stand in this case? HR said there was no black marks against my name and no reason I should have failed my probation period. Also
  5. Hi I claim working tax credits 1 am 64 yrs old and work only 30 hours a week , because I suffer rather badly from DVT's had 3 and the last one was a "Pulmonary Embolism" the PE being 2015 because of which I HAD to have 13 weeks away from work and in complete rest . Not my choice though I was particularily ill , 5 out of 6 people do not survive this illness , so my consultant would not take any chances . I am self-employed and I do have an accountant/book keeper , would the time I had away from work affect my claim . regards 29.
  6. ok hoping someone can advise here, my husband is currently at risk of redundancy, those made redundant will not be needed after the end of august, as my husband has been with the company for 11 years he should be given 11 weeks notice or paid in lieu of notice if not required. my husbands employer is telling him that they can make him work his notice at another site, can they do this especially considering that the other sites do not generally work on the same pay, hours or even the same job role as what my husband is on so don't know how they can make him do that. plus it would most likely
  7. This is likely to be a move we will see from other Councils. It will surely affect those who entered the buy to let market before the credit crunch and find themselves with empty houses as the austerity measures bite. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-20634448
  8. Hi guy's I went for a work induction for a security company last Tuesday and was offered work on the Friday morning and Saturday, up until the Saturday evening I had not received my letter of employment or contract. In my letter of employment it stated I had 14 days to question the T&C's. By the Sunday I hadn't signed any contract or letter of employment and had found out some nasty things about the company which led me to resign on the Monday after working just 2 day's. The HR manager was very nasty on the phone to me after quitting and told me that Iwould not be getting
  9. Hi there, I am new to this forum and need some advice. I have spent a whole morning talking to mortgage advisors only to find out that because my contact has a 3 year probationary period I can not take out a mortgage until this period has run its course. Firstly are probationary periods legal? And is 3 years excessive? I can find no where on the internet which gives me any guidance on the legal length of probationary periods. I never knew that this would effect my chances of buying a house. Am I able to fight the length of this period even though I have already signed my contract?
