  1. Hi all, my first post here so hoping I am in the right place Its a bit long winded but I will try to be concise as possible. I work in local authority in care centre. The same group has a number of similar centres throughout the County. We have recently been subject to management restructuring and additional responsibilities have been added to my role and other staff who do the same role as me in the other locations. We also have regular review meetings where we get together and share ideas to standardise our policies and operating procedures throughout all the centres, so we all wor
  2. Hi, i have been told by my employer that due to a few internal changes i will lose all of the supervisory/managerial elements of my job. My team will now report directly to a colleague, as will i. My job title will change also. I have not seen a new job description and will work at the same level as the staff i previously managed. This appears to others as a demotion. I do not intend to accept this change which is to be fairly immediate. I have been in current role as a team leader for over 5 years. What action should I take? Thanks
  3. Hi, thought I'd see if I could find any useful advice here. I'm very anxious so any good pointers much appreciated! I'll keep it as brief as I can: I'm a one-man IT dept for a medium size organisation - permanent position that has risen in seniority over 12 years. My line manager is proposing a reorganisation that will end my current role and replace it with an extremely similar role on a 2-year fixed term contract. Redundancy is an option, and I am unsure as yet if 'they' are keen for me to take it, or take the new role. I want to stay on, and I believe the new role is precisely my
  4. READ MORE HERE: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-latin-america-37126747 So the UN has admitted it caused the Outbreak which is still devastating that country to date but use there privilege get out clause and claim Diplomatic Immunity to stop paying out compensation. Shame on you United Nations
  5. At this time of year, you always get debates on the various Religions and their role in the world Personally, although i attended Church of England schools with prayers at assemblies and the school choir at a local church, i am not a practicing Christian. I attend Funerals, Weddings and am interested in religion, but i don't attend a church on a regular basis. I find that in other countries they take religion far more seriously. In Spanish Towns when the church bells ring, the town closes down almost, with people heading to the church. They do this during weekly prayers, religious f
  6. Hi There, I recently accepted a role for a large travel company working abroad (in Turkey). Staff are put on temporary short-term contracts with wages to a UK bank account. My main concern is the contract and the right to annual leave. As far as I am aware, UK employment law still applies as it is a temporary contract based overseas. In the contract, it says employees work 6 days a week and all employees must take half a days annual leave each week. As a result, all employees essentially work 5 and a half days a week. My question was whether or not this was legal, and if so, why don'
  7. Hi All, So I bit the bullet... Got two defaults... 1 x Lowell's was Orange 1 year left before disappears into the ether, two figure value - probably was a final charge after termination of contract - notice given to terminate on month 23 to end on month 24 (end of). They stated could only terminate from month 24 - I said err no - its a two year contract - I don't wish to continue etc - PAN given (retained old number on new contract - also with EE) Other is RBS - 4 figure with a 1 and 5 at front. OD was limited to 500. About 18 months left to run before disap
  8. Hi, I recently had costs awarded against me at a PHR. I had not been expecting this. I am picking up the pieces now after the shock of it all. A good friend referred me to this forum and to some recent posts about costs, in particular the fact that the employer is not allowed to charge more than £33 ph for preparing for the hearing. Mine charged £110 ph - this was not challenged by the judge. They also included external solicitor's costs on top. If I apply the £33 limit it works out that I will be paying more in costs than the employer was allowed to claim for. I am incensed
  9. My wife asked her employer recently if she could go term-term only, so we don't have to pay out expensive childcare costs when it is school holidays. Her employer agreed to this, but are querying her claim that she is still entitled to accrue holiday pay (either as time off during the term-time, or as extra pay equivalent to what she would have earned). Am I right in thinking that term-time members of staff are still entitled to accrue holiday pay?
  10. Hi, I have just recently (about 1 month ago) got and accepted a new permanent role with a fairly large company. I am due to start work with this company on the 17th June- however yesterday I was advised by them the office was potentially going to move down south (about 250 miles away) within the next 6 months. I wasn't made aware of this until yesterday and they are saying they have only just found out themselves. They have give me the option of relocating (which im not going to do) retracing the offer acceptance or working with the company until they move and then be left with no job. I
  11. Hello I recently started a new role with a well known insurance company in what was described as an inbound contact centre. I took this job as I've worked in sales before and wanted to avoid the problems of cold calling. I was told all the calls would be incoming calls for people who need quotes. One week into the role and I have found this to not be the case. The company is paying people to cold call people then transfer them through to the inbound contact centre. Although I am not dialling myself the calls are to all intends and purposes cold calls and I am getting the same a
  12. I want to tell everyone of my experience with this e-company THE UK ELECTORAL ROLL, and warn of their unsatisfactory customer care / service they give, or don't give, and advise you NOT to subscribe to this companies service unless you want to waste your money. It wasn't a lot of money but the principal is that you do not get what you are paying for. I registered with this company for a one month period to search the names and addresses of relatives for my family history. This company (THE UK ELECTORAL ROLL) is offering up to date information from the electoral role, I did one sea
