  1. Low earners risk tax shock on workplace pensions There is apparently an anomaly on some of the auto enrolment schemes. You can read more in the article linked below. https://www.ft.com/content/40af7052-0361-11e7-aa5b-6bb07f5c8e12
  2. Hello Friends, I have been working a my current firm for last 1 year 3 months at one of the top financial firms. I have to work very hard and extended hours to meet the business objectives of firm. My boss is being very unkind and dishonest with me. He basically wants to throw me out and bring in an old colleague at a lower salary. I came to know about his plan from one another colleague. Last Monday, there was a without prejudice meeting with firms solicitor where the boss started making false and flimsy allegations that my conduct has not been right in that I did not follow his ins
  3. A friend of mine who is doing some research into today’s workplace for her university course has asked me to post this up although I have done it in my words as hers seem a little to complicated for me to understand and would like your honest answers, please not the political correct answer also. A 48-year-old ex-soldier was medically discharged from the army due to mental health issues over 15 years ago. He held down a job for 5 years at first working in a support role for a IT company but is illness got worse and he was forced to give up working, and was put on the sick with a li
  4. Hi everyone, looking for ideas, I manage a supervisor on another site, but because I am not based on that site the senior on site manager will take control if I am not around. This other manager dislikes that the Supervisor was made up from her previous role and her attitude right from the beginning has been that because she has that position she should magically know how to manage every situation, including complex technology problems that can be challenging and we have to rely on the I.T. department and the main company help desk which is an exhaustive and messy process. She accu
  5. can anybody advise me as I seem to have got a lot of contradictory info here. I would like to know if the contribution an employee pays out of his/her wages/salary towards their workplace pension is in fact taxable through the normal p.a.y.e. system. Any help would be appreciated.
  6. Hi all, Simple question really, it would seem that a pension I used to have (occupational) was with Tibbett and Britten group. The pension trustees apparently were wound up in 2012 as far as I can make out, but I still have around 8 years of contributions with this pension fund. What do I do ? How do I access my frozen pension funds from a fund that has been wound up ? This isn't my area of expertise, but I'm sure someone here is an expert
  7. Looking for some advice for a friend of mine. He works within a department of between 10-15 people. The work all over the Midlands area covering diffrent stores. At the end of each season a cash bonus is paid to them providing targets are met. Some stores clear target when some struggle to make it anywhere near, they work out the bonus based on which stores you have covered 80% of the time. Some people work a variety of stores whilst a select few are allowed to be based at one store only. They find any excuse not to move these stores as they know and often boast about how t
  8. Please only read this if you can provide useful help. I am just a small cog, in a huge manufacturing plant that has its own site security who man the gates checking lorries leaving. This morning I had to leave night shift early due to a private hospital appointment. This was pre-planned, and accepted by my boss, and I also had the proof letter. There are 2 lanes to exit, with retractable bollards, and safety barriers that can also be raised. As there was a long que of lorries in the left hand lane, I chose to use the open right hand lane as the first set of bollards & barr
  9. Hi All, Basically its like this. I work at a military establishment with a woman who is starting to drive me nuts, basically. She has obsessive compulsive disorder - don't get me wrong, I fully respect she has the condition but she's making my working life that much more unbearable. She's even confiding in a work colleague that she went to see a psychologist because she said that I stress her out at work and to hear that second hand from a work colleague was not too pleasant to be honest. I have had a problem with pen chewing and putting things in my mouth, chewing my nails e
  10. In my workplace there is two unions , i shall call them union A and Union B 90% of the work force is in union A and all the elected union reps are from union A For those staff that are in the minority union , who have no elected reps - can the union reps refuse to represent us that are not in there union ? They are saying they can go to a hearing and the like as a "companion" only but cannot represent us or assist with any problems we may have as we are not in there union , even though we work in the same place ? Surely if they are the elected work place union reps they sh
  11. Hi, I work in a large organisation of 500 employees where management is planning to reduce activity in our section and half the work force of our section from 20 members to 10. As a result, someone has decided to organise a petition of all 500 of the workers in the organisation asking management for an end to job losses and instead to negotiate an alternative plan with our section. I have argued that anybody who signs such a petition could find themselves in trouble with management but other people seem to think that any direct consequences such as dismissal or maltreatment would be il
  12. Hi there. I'm hoping for a bit of advice on where I stand with regard to workplace benefits promised to me but not provided. When I started working for my new employer in February 2013 I was promised enrollment into the one of the company benefit schemes if I achieved a certain target. I met the target in early July and had a meeting with both of my bosses (the company MD and the HR boss) who confirmed that I would now be enrolled with immediate effect. This was put in writing and I completed the application forms for the scheme that afternoon. I thought no more of it unti
  13. The company I work for has decided to pass on the cost of the WPL to its staff. which is fair enough. However, they have also decided to add on an additional amount of money which they say will go towards installing a new barrier and other controls. The amount isn't small either. If you want a 5 day permit, the actual cost is £334, but the company is charging £450. Is this legal and can I refuse to pay this additional charge? The more I think about it, it can't be right?! Your advice and thoughts would be much appreciated.
  14. I have suffered 6 years of bullying from two line managers, and their boss. I work in the civil service, so I got 6 months full pay, and I have put in a grievance. My psychistrist has agreed and is willing to write a report in support of the stress that the bullying has caused, and my gp sent me to Lifeline, because I was so bad, I was suicidal. The problem now is they have cut my pay in half, without even informing me. I have put in a form for full pay, in seeing that the injury was caused by my work, but they don't seem to think I am elgible for it..... I know I am lucky I got 6
  15. Evening all, Im after some advice, Last friday i was taken in to the office by my boss and suspended on pay. There were two claims made against me by the apprentice. One that i had hit him over the head with a first aid box and another that i had hit him round the face twice for no reason. The first, hitting round the head with a first aid box, this was completely accidental, and rather than a hit id would of called it catching him with a box as i passed him, i apologised. Nothing more was said and i was surprised he moaned about that. The later, was rubbish, i hadn't hit him/ touch
