  1. Simpler Internal Dispute Resolution Procedures for the AFPS READ MORE HERE: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/simpler-internal-dispute-resolution-procedures-for-the-afps
  2. Concerning the issue of whether we are a casual worker or a an employee there is many criteria to consider for example the time we work for the employer, our skills, whether he employs us only in case of shortage or during peak time or he uses us in the normal running of our business...etc. However I would like to know if the conclusive evidence is not when the P45 has been issued because if it has been issued one year after the start of employment this means that we are now an employee. It is up to the employer to decide if he need us anymore or nor and as a consequence if he se
  3. My problem with NatWest started in October 2013. I saw I was overdrawn by £16K I only have an overdraft limit of £1,600. As it was a weekend I transferred money from my savings account and called them as soon as I could to find out what had gone wrong. The bank told me that my account had not been overdrawn and in fact had a healthy balance - I was confused? When I saw the statement for this time period I saw that for the first time ever in 30 years my statment transaction and processing dates were out of order and in some cases transactions had taken over 8 days to proc
  4. Yesterday morning I went to work without a care in the world. I was told by my manager then at 10am that an 'investigation' was being carried out as I had forgotten to lock a loaded vehicle overnight on Friday, thankfully it had been spotted and wasn't actually left unlocked. Then at 4:30 as I was leaving I was told that I had been dismissed and would be paid until the end of the week. I had no meetings (other than the initial 'we're investigating, did you do it chat), no chance to give my side across, and no letter or anything advising of my right to appeal. My manager had given me a she
  5. Hi all....theres lots to this but I work for a company that within just over 15 months has grown from approx 8 personnel including the MD to now over 180 with three directors in functional positions. We have...ABSOLUTELY. no policies or procdeures for anything....and I really do mean nothing at all. recently they have tried to discipline 2 people...they had Union reps with them and the procedures had to be stopped. We have no..first aid kits, no first aiders, no fire wardens, no evacuation procedure, No Equality and diversity policy, no staff handbooks etc the list goes on
  6. Hi, Just a quick question regarding following works procedures. If you do your job and the company accept the way you (and others) have carried out your duties over a long period of time, can they all of a sudden say you have not followed the procedures laid out and dismiss you for gross misconduct ? Having never been told/warned or had any discipline about it previously. Or is it a case of tough luck. Thanks
  7. Hello. I have come to this forum as a result of already having gleaned a lot of useful information from other posts on this website. I am seeking advice from anyone who is or has had trouble with Sherrif Officers due to unpaid parking fines. Before I ask for specific adice though, I will provide a background to the situation. My girlfriend (Sue), or rather her address, is getting targetted by Sherrif's Officers working under the jurisdiction of Perth Sherrif court (Scots Law). They are chasing after her ex-boyfriend (Tom) for an unpaid parking ticket and have served an 'Attachment S
  8. Hello all I have a lot of practical experience of the Charging Order process from the creditor's perspective, and I'd be more than happy to provide advice and guidance to anyone who is faced with the prospect of having an application issued against their property. If you need any info on the process itself, the documentation, Court hearings etc. then please ask away and I'll do my best to help
  9. New rules about appeal rights and making appeals against benefit decisions are due for widespread implementation from 28 October. Overview From 28 October 2013, new appeal rules and procedures that already apply to universal credit (UC) and personal independence payment (PIP) are due to be extended to benefits administered by the DWP. Housing benefit is not included – the appeal arrangements for that benefit will remain the same. It is understood that for benefits (child benefit and guardian’s allowance) and tax credits administered by HMRC, the new rules and procedures will be intro
  10. HI, What happens if a tenant doesn't submit a Defence and Counterclaim by the due date the courts have set out
  11. Hi, praticaly all correspondence I receive from my respondent's solicitors is liberally peppered with quoted sections from various procedures and legislation. So much so it does induce a certain amount of word-blindness and unease (which I think is part of the reason it is included!). Are there a few basic pieces of legislation and/or guidance notes that I should be looking at in order to appreciate the overall business of the Tribunal and the responsibilities of both the claimant and the respondent. The tribunal service sent me a few very basic booklets - but nothing that covers th
  12. Hiya All I have a very Basic Question concerning Policies/Procedures. If a Employer has acted under various policies and procedures [in a way that targetted/excluded individuals/groups] which turn out not to exist - how would that affect a potential employment tribunal case? How would you explain the non-existance to a Judge? I am sure there will be some in interesting replies so fire away people. Cheers
  13. Thanks for taking the time to read my thread, much appreciated. I am currently researching disciplinary procedures over the internet because I have been suspended over gross misconduct (theft) and I wanted some advice. I know what I have done is wrong, but I have looked on the ACAS website and called helplines and they are telling me that the company has not followed the procedure properly. I was called into a room for questioning, without a witness and without a recording taking place. The interviewer concluded that disciplinary action has to be taken forward. However
  14. Posting this with thanks to madpriest I don't know whether anyone else has posted this - I couldn't see it - This information supercedes all information regarding county court Actions etc. (1) You can no longer take your completed N1 to the local county court. You either have to do it online as MCOL or you have to send your N1 in to a central processing office. Note well that MCOL only allows around 1500 characters so if you have a long Particulars of Claim (POC) then you will need to send it in. (I personally think this is a better idea as a completed blue N1 naming the ban

  16. http://www.independent.co.uk/money/loans-credit/victory-for-campaigners-as-ripoff-lenders-face-instant-closure-8223242.html One hope that the Office of Fair Trading will show a robust approach to the illegal business practices shown by certain payday lenders. I am sure that many CAGgers will have a great deal of information to send to the OFT in Spring.
  17. My partner's employer has started disciplinary action against him for alleged gross misconduct (which he did not do). He is faced with an informal fact-finding meeting next week and the person who will be conducting the meeting is the accuser as well as an alleged witness to the situation. Does anybody have any idea about whether this is acceptable or not as it would seem that having an involved party conduct the investigation means that it won't be heard fairly.
