  1. Good evening Guys Please see attached pcn I received couple of hours ago. I think it's unfair because it was momentary stop to pick up stuff from a friend. Any advise on how to challenge this would be massively appreciated. Thanks
  2. Sent my appeal off with some brief details of why i was appealing , Had a Letter from DWP confirming that they received my appeal, and about how much ESA i will get until it's heard, But so far over 1mth since requesting the full written statement of the Atos wca Form IB /ESA85, But so far i have not been sent it, The person that i recently spoke with from DWP ,Confirmed that they could see that i had previously requested it, but could not understand why i had not yet received it, What can be done to force them to supply this info,(assuming it actually exists) ?
  3. Hello PCN issued by Smart Parking for wrong VRM a zero instead of O was entered. The alleged contravention happened at HAVEN BANKS RETAIL PARK EXETER A ticket was purchased for the time parked but a zero was entered instead of letter O PCN received 06/11/17 Date of alleged contrevetion 21/10/2017 I appealed, not realising that I had entered a zero instead of O. Not sure if I disclosed the driver ( sorry didn't realise at the time what a mistake that may have been). Sent supporting evidence of purchased tickets- I had know idea what I had done wrong. Appeal refused
  4. I am hoping for a little clarification on behalf of my brother in law who runs a small company with around 12 persons who now has an issue with an employee who has assaulted another member of staff and who he understandably does not want working there anymore. Now all employees are on these zero hours contracts my first question is can you dismiss / discipline persons on these contracts? suggested he follow the company disciplinary procedure to be told there is not one so I am pretty sure that's not helpful!! none of the employees have actual physical (paper) contrac
  5. Concerning the issue of whether we are a casual worker or a an employee there is many criteria to consider for example the time we work for the employer, our skills, whether he employs us only in case of shortage or during peak time or he uses us in the normal running of our business...etc. However I would like to know if the conclusive evidence is not when the P45 has been issued because if it has been issued one year after the start of employment this means that we are now an employee. It is up to the employer to decide if he need us anymore or nor and as a consequence if he se
  6. I had to reregister. I was pj2, but CAG no longer has a password renewal option (or it doesn't work, as the page doesn't exist), so there was no way I could get back into the forum. After years of paying an old debt slowly, Robinson Way sent me a letter: "our client is today offering you a 50% reduction of the balance you owe in settlement of your account. Paying XXX will clear your account and you save XXX and become free of this debt. Please note that where this account is recorded on your credit file and you pay by reduced settlement, this will be updated as partial
  7. My Ex wife has become pregnant, She has been working for her employers for just over 22 months, will she be entitled to maternity pay? Thanks in advance Leakie
  8. What benefits is someone entitled to when on a zero hours contract and not given any work for weeks?
  9. Hey. My girlfriend is currently working a zero hour contract at a big chain, which she started 6 weeks ago. They use a clock in/out fingerprint system for start/end of day and breaks. She will be receiving her first paycheck in a few days, but she is worried that the company is handling some aspects of pay in a questionable/immoral way. Workers are entitled to a 10 minute break per shift under 6 hours; they must scan in/out for this break and if they do not take the break they need to write it down in a book. The first kicker here is that if employees do not scan out for their break nor
  10. Hey folks, I'm sure I've asked this before but cant seem to find the thread....my main employment when I do overtime I get extra holiday pay, at my part time job I get the standard number of days only, so for instance someone working 39 hours a week will get the same holiday as someone working 59 hours a week (and many do) should extra holiday pay accrue? Also, if your under 18 can you work past 10pm? thanks in advance!
  11. Hi there I'm on a zero hour contract and have a couple of concerns over my rights. My concerns are 1 - should I be on the same pay as full time employees after 12 weeks. 2 - Get asked to go home early but take it as a holiday at that exact time. According to my partner regarding issue 2, as she's a manager and says most of her employees are on Zero hour contracts it's actually illegal to send them home early at that exact time unpaid or make them take it as a holiday if they want it paid. As they need to give you notice for reduced hours.

  14. Help and advice welcome. To end my debt nightmare a family member has offered to help me pay off my debt. I wrote to Cabot saying that a family member was offering to pay £800 for a full and final settlement. The original debt was for £4000 and was a CC. There are no charges that I can claim back, I just want this sorted before I move house. Cabot wrote back saying. “I am happy to accept the £800 you have offered as a one off payment to close the account. If you still wish to proceed with your offer, once the payment has been received your account will be
  15. Hi, New on here - great site. Have read many threads on incorrect registration numbers captured to PCN that attached to vehicle. In my case the reg quotes number zero (e.g. 07) as letter O (e.g. O7). Discovered the error when logging onto the parking firms website and entered the ticket Id and my registration (correctly) and my issued ticket was not found. Looked closer and realised the number to letter error, typed incorrect registration and ticket was found on their system - of course proceeded no further!! Many threads on this site simply state ignore, cant find me as no
  16. Oh dear. Only days after Apple released OS X 10.10.5, fixing a host of security flaws, a further serious (and as yet unpatched) vulnerability has been made public, by an Italian teenager who says he researches security holes in his spare time. Luca Todesco has released details of a zero-day vulnerability in OS X 10.9.5 and OS X 10.10.5, the latest shipping version of Apple's desktop and laptop operating system. According to MacIssues, the problem identified by Todesco lies in how OS X handles NULL pointers in programs, opening an opportunity for malicious code to bypass
  17. Hello. I have unusual problem with my previous insurer. Back in June 2013 i renewed my insurance with MoreThan. And then after few months I declared SORN on my car and cancelled direct debit on car insurance. Since then I was not driving. today I called them about getting my NCB proof since I want to get back on the road. What they told me after I explained what happened is that since I haven't told them about SORN on my car is they resetting my NCB from 8 years to 0. Can they do that? I never claimed and even without that extra ye
  18. Hello, Does zero Hours contract mean that i am not entitled to any Holidays? That what my employer told me but something i do not believe as few friend of mine are on the same contract with different company and they are entitled to holidays. I joined this company and i worked on zero hours contract for about 3 months and last week they give me a permanent contract. when I asked them about my holidays they told me for the last 3 months i was not entitled to it and i will then be entitled to holidays from the day i signed my contract. Is it normal ? I am really surprise and pretty s
  19. Hi folks I could do with some stone clad advice. I am currently a care worker on a zero hour contract. My average weekly wage is around £415 (taken over 12 weeks). I have just received 5 days holiday equivalent to £350. My feeling is that this is wrong and I should have a weeks wage for claiming 5 days holiday pay. It is only a small firm and the company accountant takes our our average wage for the week and divides by 7 to get a daily rate and then pays this accordingly to how many days you are claiming for. My annual wage is usually around £21500 so as a guide 12.07% is £2595 holid
  20. Hi guys, first post so please be forgiving if I post incorrectly anywhere. I've got a little problem developing at work. I've been employed on a zero-hours contract for the past three years, now I actually work 27 hours a week, i'm not asked weekly if I can or cannot work, its almost set in stone that, that is what i'm working. Last year we had changes to our main terms and conditions for full time staff and also zero-hour staff (bank staff). These were official and legal, we went through the usual union agreements etc. Unions being unions rejected the changes so we was p
  21. Been working with a company for around 6 months. Have been asked to sign new contract without notification. It states hours of work 0 - 16 hours. Is this a zero hour contract or is it a straight forward 16 hour contact? Confused???
  22. Why have I joined this forum? Well, I'm one of the 1million on a zero-hours contract and have been since December 2001. I thought we were alone but have found out otherwise over the past few days. We have not had any pay rise for 5 years and are now on the basic hourly rate which makes life very difficult. Last month I worked 68.5 hours but this month only 41.5 and next month 32.5. I have found the original 'Job Description' from 2001 in which it states that the minimum hours of the job would be 22 per week. The employer is the local council so, of course, finances are low () and, al
  23. Hello, Firstly I dont expect or want sympathy for my plight. Cut a long story short i was a very successful business owner that made a lot of money almost overnight...i then discovered drugs, alcohol and prescription drugs and ended up losing the lot and am now penny less with a wife that works 5 hours a week and an 18 yr old son that because of me suffers from depression. I am going into gov funded detox and rehab in 2 weeks time for 4 months to deal with my problem and my depression , i have an outstanding claim for ESA and have not yet had and answer from them. I fully reali
  24. After passing a Fork lift course in November last year I am now being "offered" the "opportunity to attend an open day run by Staffline DHl at a local college who are offering a training course specific to the local Land rover/Jaguar plant with a guaranteed interview with JLR at the end. The bait being the "Good wages" and secure job etc. However, a little research shows that 80% off the staff at JLR (Halewood) are Temps provided by Staffline DHL and are not paid anything like the rate JLR staff are. This company exploits a loophole in the regulations regarding temp workers and equal pay
