  7. Per Chancellor Hammond: "We have over three million European migrants working in our economy and we have full employment. So clearly we need people to come and work in our economy to keep it functioning" in response to suggestion that “the impression on the European continent is that your government sees the future business model of the UK as being the tax haven of Europe”. http://uk.businessinsider.com/philip-hammond-suggests-britain-could-become-a-tax-haven-after-brexit-2017-1?r=US&IR=T
  8. Hey Folks Mystery Shoppers will shortly be introduced at the restaurant I work in, They will be filming the server covertly, whilst we know this will happen we obviously don't know when. I've looked around online but most conversations veer off into CCTV territory....not quite the same...can we refuse to allow this? My interpretation of the DPA would be that this is excessive for what it's being used for....I've also seen that they can't replay the video without permission or an exhibition license? Whilst the server is being covertly filmed, I would assume the whole meal is
  9. Ian Hislop has revealed the "very extraordinary moment" that former Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith broke down in tears in front of him. The Have I Got News For You panellist was interviewing the Tory politician for a new BBC documentary, Workers or Shirkers? Ian Hislop's Victorian Benefits, when Duncan Smith cried on camera. http://www.radiotimes.com/news/2016-04-04/ian-hislop-reveals-extraordinary-moment-iain-duncan-smith-cried-in-new-bbc-documentary
  10. Hello there.... advice sought please. I have been working for an agency for 14 weeks now on minimum wage, I am aware that after 12 weeks in the same job you should be entitled to the same wage as permanent staff in a comparable position. So, I emailed my agency contact and this was the reply: "I was passed an email from you with regards to parity rates when you have worked your 12th week. Your friend is right to some degree, if a client has a person who works the same job on a fulltime contract with the same job specification then you would be entitled to earn the same wage as t
  11. Unsure if this is the correct thread to give a warning regarding Tesco refunding, just wish to vent somewhere:madgrin: One Saturday evening (15Jun 2013), I went to a Tesco local store and purchased a food item On way home, realised that I had forgotten to buy something and did a small diversion to my nearest Tesco superstore. I saw that the same food item purchased in the local store was cheaper at the superstore So I requested a refund An assistant called the Duty Manager, who arrived, listened then said: "Can't give a refund because our system will only give you back the pri
  12. Hi I have a couple of queries about holiday pay if anyone could please help please. My husband was made redundant in July from a permanent position, he is lucky to have found another permanent job to start in September and meanwhile he has worked several temp jobs here and there. Previous permanent position - basically he worked for this company for 7 years, he moved to another job for three months & hated it so went back, they were glad to have him back but one day before his three month 'probabtionary period' he & many others were made redundant out of the blue. During
  13. hi Im looking for some advice and as this site was so helpful to me on a previous occassion i thought id come here first, the problem i have is as follows... I have worked as an industrial cleaner in a food processing factory for two and a half years now, for the first 2 year the job was good my aprailsals were A+ for work, attitude, attendance my relationship with my supervisor was excellent. From the begining of this year all the staff on the cleaning section have been having trouble getting holidays as every time we submitted a holiday form it was rejected by the supervisor
  14. One in three workers in the UK would be unable to pay housing costs for more than a month if they lost their job, according to new research. The survey of 2,041 UK adults by homeless charity Shelter found that 35% could not afford to pay rent or a mortgage by dipping into their savings for more than a month. Among households with children the situation is more precarious, with 43% unable to pay for their home for longer than a month if they lost their pay cheque, while 23% could not meet their payments at all. Campbell Robb, chief executive of Shelter, said: “These figures paint an alarmi
  15. In yet another humiliating court defeat for Iain Duncan Smith, thousands of sacked Jobcentre staff may be entitled to compensation due to an employment tribunal ruling that they were unlawfully sacked. Story http://johnnyvoid.wordpress.com/2013/03/27/jobcentre-illegally-sacked-thousands-of-workers/ As the article states I wonder if IDS will attempt to retrospectively change the law on this one.
  16. If a groundworkers contract states 40 hours a week, no mention of adverse weather arrangements etc., and the person arrives for work to be sent home as the site is frozen, am I right in thinking that they are entitled to be paid? Many thanks.
  17. Hi Are there any housing benefit staff that come on here? I am getting so frustrated at the moment, apart from still waiting for my first months accounts back (last april) I don't feel I can improve in my self employed work. I know I can make more profit but am too scared to. I am down for £100 per week profit self employed, that's what my housing benefit is based on & am now scared to go over that. But I want to build the business up! I don't understand how it all works with housing benefit. I only have to pay £26 per week towards my rent at the moment. I don't mind paying more,

  19. I hope I have posted this in the right forum. My mate's child who is mentally disabled attends a special school. A mark/scab was noticed by his mother and the child said it had occured at school. My mate asked the school they denied that any incident has occured. The school have contacted social services, who have been round to see the parents twice (and inspected the property), and are saying the child needs to be taken into hospital for a special check up. At first, the parents disagreed because the social workers said they will take the child and some disclaimer forms must be sign
  20. Lets say this is an hypothetical question. I work in a care home, all care assistants are on the same pay per hour £6.08, as far as I know. We are all NVQ2,and all do the same job. What if it was known that 2 members of staff are on more per hour, namely £6.50, these 2 are what we would call the managers favourites. Lets say a document was accidentally read by a another staff member in the managers office, while they were speaking to them there, which stated certain staff and how much per hour beside their names. I do not think anything is mentioned in our contracts about performance relat
