    • Thank you for your responses. I brought my claim within the required period; I have now got my tribunal date 6 months after the incident first occurred. To clarify, I meant I have been researching the CAB website, I have not actually spoken to anyone about this matter due to workload and fear of being landed with a bill.   Best Regards, Scott
    • Hi, If you are getting advice from CAB it's best to stick with them. Getting advice from 2 different sources will cause conflict/confusion so It's best that you stick to the CAB as a pose to using this forum. People on here are volunteers and whilst we're happy to help, getting help from two sources at once isn't very good use of either places resources. I wish you the best for your case.  
    • There are no costs awards at an employment tribunal, let alone statutory interest. You have to do something really dumb to end up with a costs order such as refusing to follow court directions.
    • Can I ask how you were not timed out with an employment tribunal if you have been in dispute for six months? The reason why I ask is that recently submitted a claim in the county court for unpaid wages as was timed out a claim with the tribunal service? You only have three months to submit the claim from the cause of action.
    • Hello All After spending 6 months trying to get £1,500 of unpaid wages from my previous employer and going through early conciliation with ACAS, I now have an Employment Tribunal date of 20 / 09 / 2024. The Citizens Advice Bureau and posts on here have been really helpful, but I am unsure on a few points: 1) I have to send a document setting out how much money I am claiming - is there a template / recommended format for this? 2) Can I claim 8% statutory interest from the start, or is this just if they do not pay any award on time? 3) I was looking at getting a solicitor, but the estimated fees are £4,000 to £6,000 - would I be able to claim these fees from my employer if I win, presumably I would have to pay if I didn't win? 4) If I don't get a solicitor, I believe I can claim £41 per hour preparation time - how hard is this to prove / claim? I will probably think of other questions later, many thanks in advance for any responses to my questions or any other suggestions / advice. Best Regards, Scott

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

Hi there,

just checking what people think!

 

We run a basic cleaning firm where we clean people's houses. yesterday, when one of the cleaners went to do a house clean, (where the people supply the cleaning materials) the man who owns the house slipped on the floors. Now, firstly the floors were damp and drying and he was told to be careful. Secondly, it transpires that the floor cleaner supplied was polish not "pledge wooden floor cleaner" and so the floors were slippy. The cleaner went back and redid the floors as soon as we all realised what had happened.

 

do you think the customer has grounds for claiming as he suppplied the floor cleaner and was told to stay off the wet floors?

Id suggest it was contributory negligence on both sides. The householder may have supplied the products, but there would have been a duty of care that the cleaner should have realised the floor treatment was going to be problematic. Also against you is that despite this arrangement, the householder could argue that the polish was never meant to be used on the floor - just his grand piano - and had not realised the pledge wooden floor cleaner was empty. Hopefully, a common-sense solution will prevail. Why not offer (without liability) to do the house free for a month as a gesture of goodwill? If it looks like getting nasty, a solicitor is a must.

I hope it don't come to anything Mc and I think Buzby's idea is a great one and the cost would be negliable.

Just to bring to your attention. A few years ago a woman slipped on an commercial building floor that had been washed and there were signs around saying take care slippery floor, won her case for compensation as the judge said that putting those signs out was an admittance that the floor was dangerous.

You can't win can you and don't know what to do for the best.

Did he injure himself when he slipped?

For most claims regarding health + safety you need to have Negligence, Loss and a link between the too. Dependent on the amount of warning given to the client, the injury occurred and whether that injury prevented him from doing anything else would weigh heavily on any claim against you.

Problem these days is that many insurance companies will pay out when really they should fight the case. I have several clients who have been faced with increased premiums because staff have injured themselves (most of the time through their own negligence) but instead of investigating and fighting it the insurers just pay up and charge everyone who has public liability insurance.
