  1. I’ve never needed a mobile phone except when travelling up north to see my mum who’s in a care home. Just before Christmas 2014 I got a mobile phone from EE so I could stay in touch with work, etc., while visiting my mum. When I set it up it was clear that it didn’t work. I tried all sorts of things and it still wouldn’t work. But I forgot about it for a few days. When I got back after Christmas I decided to phone EE and tell them that it didn’t work. The problem was that they said I didn’t pass the security questions; as a result I could not speak to anyone.

Hi , I am posting on behalf of a friend , they have been in a IVA, next year it comes to a ends after 8 years, the company they are with have send that when it comes to a end they will have to take out a loan to pay off out standing amount left over, I thought if you went in a IVA after you have been discharged all your debts where write off , the original time for the IVA was 5 years, but after he split with is partner he was left with the mortgage and bills to pay on his own so they extended the IVA , also is ex partner has made him put the house up for sal
  4. I came from EU to London in November last year, 2015 and i was working as self employed for 1.5 months in that year. I was waiter through an agency working for minimal wage, now i am employed already but I am concerned about those several weeks that i worked as self employed last year, i haven't submitted any documents about the salaries i received and i don't know if i should and what documents i need to have, i don't have all of my pay slips either. Today I was in the agency that i worked for to ask these questions, and they told me not to worry about that, sinc
  5. A 2-yr probation period is unheard of. Additionally all employees have an entitlement of sickness absence accounted for. I do not believe a two-week sickness absence in Oct 2015 and a further 2-week sickness absence in March 2016 can lead to a dismissal. They can and may discipline you for absence periods. You say you had no contact from your employer? Did you not contact them advising them you would be off sick? Employers have a duty of care so if you are sick they can insist you attend an independent doctor for assessment. No biggie if your gen
  6.

  7. Hi all Thanks for taking the time to look at my question. As stated in the title I've requested my holiday allowance from my employer and have received a response stating my allowance so far this year is 6 hours a week as per my contracted hours. I work on average 25 - 30 hours a week shift work and have done for the entire year and previous years too.

  10. My lad graduated smack in the middle of the recession and rather than going on the dole has been supporting himself by working in various hotels and inns in very low paid jobs. He is rather too willing to please and not ever so good at asserting himself, as a consequence he has always co-operated with requests to work extra hours and has come in at very short notice for late shifts. He has been working 70 hours a week for the last 22 months or so for his current employer. In January his manager told him he would be promoted and go onto the 'staff' of course no contract materialised and
  11. FOS Ombudsman upheld a very tricky complaint against Manchester Building Society, resulting in a liability of £37,000 being discharged and compensation of £1,000 being awarded. The adjudicator had turned it down, but the Ombudsman disagreed with that decision. It did take 12 months and 200 pages of evidence though!! My mum acted as guarantor for my son's first mortgage. Some years later it was changed from repayment to interest only (therefore bearing different risks and a different financial product) then later again to a buy to let mortgage. at no time was my mum advised by the Bui
  12. Hello All, I have a little predicament at the moment. I did a house move for a friend a few weeksago with a couple of guys I use on a sub-contract basis. Long and short of it is they are refusing topay me because of the problems they had thereafter. The points are: · My quoted price for the move was £1280 over 3days (Saturday to Monday) with 3 men working (including myself). The old house is a large detached 4 bedroomhouse with a large out building. Bothbuildings are crammed with stuff. She isa chronic hoarder and never throws anything away. There are my friends andtheir
  13. Hello, I am currently under a 17 hours per week contract. However, over the last six months or more, I have consistently worked 6.5 hours extra per week. I have heard that this regularly worked overtime becomes a contract because it was over a period of time? If true, can anyone point me in the direction of UK Employment law that supports this? Thank you
  14. hey CAG, hope you're all doing well! First off I'm in a bit of a pickle just looking for some advice please. I work for a cleaning company inside a retail company; I usually work 7am till 6pm every Saturday. We have a clock in machine that's bio-metric and we're supposed to scan in and out for everything. I clocked in at 7am and out at 6pm but forgot to clock out for my break, it was an honest mistake and it's not that big of a deal; it can easily be amended but the company I work for is refusing to pay me for the whole day. I've spoken with my managers manager and she said sh
  15. Hi all - just wondering if some-one can tell me how the 8% interest is worked out please? I took a cash loan out for £13,000, with the interest charged totalling £3,884.72.

  16. Hi guys, I seem to posting all over this website, but will try and keep this short! I am employed by a well known security company (Not G4S!!!) on a 45 HPW contract. Up until the end of November last year, I worked all my shifts, only had time off sick when I couldn't get out of bed and was always on time, unless something terrible had occurred. At the end of November last year, I found that I was without an important piece of kit and utilised what was available in the right possible manner. I can't go into much detail on this, but someone accused me of stealing this item and I was
