  2. Hi everyone, I believe it is best I give the example first before I ask the question Person A made a Protected Disclosure A little while later, he suffered a detriment He raised a grievance His employer brought forward a good reason why he was subjected to that treatment (it had nothing to do with the PD) Now he is being victimized for raising the grievance If he had made allegations under the Equality Act, he would have been protected from victimization However, since he made allegations under the Whistleblowing Act (PIDA) he doesn't seem to have any pr

  4. I'm a middle age white guy, privately educated. I've been working in my current job for 7 years and am currently being bullied out of my job by an absolute **** of a BAME female manager. I don't hold out much hope to prove it. Do I have any cards I can use? IE/ I'm not BAME or LGBTQI, or Disabled, or mentally ill - just a regular hard working middle age indigenous employee. Nothing comes to mind I can stick them with...

  7. In 2002 I had 969 pound in a pension pot. I was advised to not transfer it into my new works pension as it would do better left with Rothschild. I have just rang to find out whats in the fund and was told zero due to charges cancelling out the fund. Im mad as they have not sent an annual statement in the last 14 years. Ive just spoken with the press who seem interested. Regards

  9. Hi A quick question if I may. A friend has a joint debt with wife. He was in an IVA which completed last year, the joint debt was subject to the Settled IVA. Wife was not in an IVA. Seven years after starting IVA - IVA friends wife has received letter saying they are pursuing for outstanding debt, they can't pursue him due to IVA so going after other name on joint account. I guess some of the payments to the IVA from him over term of IVA will have settled some of the debt. In the past seven years wife has made no payment to IVA and received no communication regard

  11. Hey guys! I am once again being trodden on by rich people! So I shall post here to see if anyone has any advice for my plight! In november I moved into a rented house in our town, for me and my girlfriend, who is disabled by the way! The landlord was messing us around from the off, trying to let the property when they hadnt even bought it yet, so even though they gave me a start date for the move and I paid up the rent in advance I couldnt move in because she technically didnt own the property as it was awaiting some signing or some such nonsense! Anyway, when I final
  12. Hello, I have a joint AST (with my wife) with a large housing association paying Market Rent - ie we pay a rent equivalent (indeed in excess of) what the private sector would charge. Our deposit was paid at the beginning of the AST, and protected in the mydeposits scheme. We received the prescribed deposit information at the beginning of the AST in May 2012. We have not received any further prescribed information since the beginning of the AST in May 2012. The initial fixed term was 6 months, and we've been on a statutory periodic since November 2012. In January this year I r
  13. Hi im seeking some advice We have been living in our rented property for 6 years and are moving out We have informed the landlord and he visited the property to inspect the property so he could give us a reference He gave us a reference ok but now he is sending us texts saying he wants to keep £500 of the deposit to replace the 2 faux sofas that we had already replaced 2 years ago We replaced the sofas ourselves 2 years ago as the ones he provided we cracked and worn out, we texted him and he was ok with this and said as long as there are 2 sofas when u leave that would b
  14. Hi all. to keep a painfully long story short the lettings agent me and my housemates rented a house from last year failed to protect our deposit and have now gone into liquidation. After some research and calls to the CAB/Council/Small Claims etc. it turns out the Landlord is equally responsible as he should have ensured the deposit was protected, which he did not. I have been in contact with the landlord, who lives in singapore, and he is saying the good old "it's not his fault" and that he doesn't have to pay. He is now ignoring my phone calls and i do not have his address to send
  15. I don't think my landlord has protected my deposit and he is holding back £400 for scratches on the laminate floor that were already there when we moved in 4 years ago. My sister has just registered her details on [fee-charging website removed] and I have never heard of this... does anyone know whether this website can help her get compensation like it says it can? Thanks
  16. Hi, I was wondering if anyone could offer me their insight into my problem. I moved into a property just over 3 years ago and have just moved out, but my landlord is withholding the deposit. As background my housemate and I paid our deposit + first month rent to a full management letting agent in cash. A DPS certificate was not obtained and I completely forgot about it (I know, i'm an idiot). The flat we moved into was messy and had a fair amount of wear and tear already (despite it being quite a new build, apparently is was a case of build them quick and low quality) and this was reco
  17. Hi, I was on Incapacity Benefit and moved to Contributory ESA for a year. I'm now moving to Income Related ESA but because I've gotten some money this year I will be a bit over the £6,000 savings rate to get the full amount. When I moved to Contributory ESA the amount I got was protected and I got the same as I had on Incapacity Benefit. Will I continue to get this rate on Income Related ESA even though I have some savings? By the way, even though I got about £20 more than i would normally on ESA because I was on this protected rate. All that actually happened is that they took
  18. Hi guys, suffering with a really bad back which wakes me up in pain after about 4 hours sleep. I am hoping that a new mattress will help the problems and have found one on the internet which I think will be ok. If I buy it, the seller says I would have to sleep on it for a night STILL IN ITS PACKAGING and return it if it wasn't right. How can anyone try a product such as a mattress without taking it out of the packaging? I doubt it would sit on the bed frame without unpacking it first!! And anyway it might take several nights for me to decide whether its right for me.
  19. Hi guys, I am here for some advise and help before I go completely insane... I have a number of CCJ's which are being enforced by AOE orders and also child support to pay out each month, however someone mentioned on the bus today about I should have protected earnings. Doing searches for the past hour and I cant find any solid answer to my question of what is my protected earnings rate, because to be fair, I think I am being deducted FAR too much money. To outline, my payslip reads as follows... (I get paid 4 weekly) (yearly salary £11631.89) Income:- Basic pay £892.31
  20. Hello. I am new to this (or indeed any) forum. Any input on a somewhat complicated matter is appreciated I recently (10/3/13) moved out of a flat where I had been living since 12/3/2012. My landlady lived in the flat nextdoor - she had converted my flat from what was part of her house. My flat was completely separate with no shared entrance, metres or facilities. I initially paid six months rent in advance @ £500 per month plus £500 deposit. My landlady did not give me a tenancy agreement. She had always been friendly and affable, we went for coffee once or twice and I did not suspect tha
  21. Hi, Please bare with me, this is my firstpost and I would really appreciate some advice. I moved into my rental property with my husband and 3 kids on 26th April 2010 and paid a deposit to my landlord. We signed a new fixed term AST every six months up until 26th April 2012 when it was switched to a periodic. On the 19th June we received a notice 21 stating the landlord wanted to move back in. We found another property that is perfect for us regarding schools location etc. We had the references and checks back and agreed to move in by end of August. Unfortunately the current ten
  22. Hi All I started my 6 month tenancy earlier this year and have recently been given s21. notice to leave at the end of the 6 months. I believe the notice is not valid as the landlord has not registered the deposit (I have checked with all agencies recently and they are in the process of sending written confirmation) however I want to leave anyway as my baby is due soon and I do not want the landlord to register the deposit and then re-issue the notice as by that point I will have a newborn and no way of moving. The deposit was 3 times a months rent (my entire savings!) so I have withh
  23. I rented a property for approximately 2 years and ended the tenancy agreement and moved out in March 2013. The landlord has been dragging his feet on releasing my deposit (held via the Deposit Protection Scheme). He also come up with a list of deductions he would like to take off my deposit - quite a few that I am disputing. As part of my efforts to speed up the process of returning my deposit, I have discovered that my landlord had NOT protected my deposit within the first 30 days of the tenancy agreement. In fact, he only registered it with the Deposit Protection Scheme f
  24. Hi All, This is my first post but I have been reading through all your posts for a while now and I've gained tonnes of knowledge from you all, thanks! I would like to put my current predicament up here to see if anyone can offer me some good advice specific to my case. I have just vacated a property which I have been renting since January 2010 on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy. I paid a £700 deposit to the Landlords agent at the time, we have had rolling 12 month contracts since then which the Landlord has taken care of himself. On the original contract it was stipulated that my £700 w
  25. Hello, I'm aware that if a landlord has failed to protect a deposit, or failed to provide details, they are liable for certain penalties. Our situation is that: -our deposit is registered as being protected with mydeposits starting August 2010 -since August 2010 the tenancy has been renewed several times -some tenants have been replaced at various times with other tenants since Aug 2010 -when the tenancy was renewed, and some tenants replaced, new tenants were simply told to pay their deposits to outgoing tenants, who signed a letter saying this had been done -we received n
