    • A further suggestion -     Dear Will & John.   I must admit I was in awe of receiving a letter from your esteemed law firm thinking what have I done to deserve such an honour. Perhaps you have discovered a long lost relative has left me a fortune in a will and I could give up work to pursue my love of goat farming using the money to set up a small holding in the outer Hebrides producing fine cheese and goat hair sweaters. Alas no! In bold letters it stated Letter before action almost if one had to get ready for battle and my power ranger pyjamas will have to be on a boil wash first before I can even think about action. Anyway I digress after further research I discovered this is in relation to some parking shenanigans of which I have no knowledge and for a place I've never been to, so as the Private Parking world's best solicitors you should be aware, I know that you know a case isn't going anywhere on the facts as presented. I may add that that not all is lost, as I used your letter to line the cat litter tray. Mr wiggles is most pleased with his firm and absorbent lining beaming happily away as he does his cat business before securing a warm spot in front of the fire as we sit down to watch cash in the attic. Good luck with the soliciting business I hear it can be quite lucrative. P.S – it is uncle Herbert who apparently left a fortune so if you do come across him please let me know…   COPIED TO MINSTER BAYWATCH     Send the letter to Gladstones tomorrow and also invest in a second 2nd class stamp and send a copy to Minster Baywatch.  Get two free Certificates of Posting.  This is because Gladdys have a lot of previous for egging on their clients to start court cases, even though their cases were pants and they were bound to lose, after all it's still £££££ for Will & John.  Let the PPC know too that the only result of a court case will be a massive tonking that will cost them dearly.
    • It is you right to demand all comms by letter only   if you wish to reply. simply state you have failed to give me your banking details i will not be paying by dd sorry.   should you wish my payment proposals to start please supply them. should you fail to do so, i will take this matter to the relevant authorities that govern you   YOu are reminded it is my right to request comms in writing only.   Dx
    • Good news.  They haven't bothered to send the authorisations you asked for, so in your WS later you can say you believe they don't have them.   EDIT  Indeed in your defence now you can state that you believe the claimant doesn't possess important authorisations.
    • Many thanks for your reply @dx100uk    Will begin the ppc cpr 31:14 to DCB and scan everything when I’m home later.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Hi, does she usually get a payslip? the reason I'm asking is because she should have one every time she is paid showing hours worked, rate of pay, and tax and NI deductions. If she'd been sent one with the 3rd Jan payment you would have been able to see exactly what she's been paid for. What reasons did they give for not sending payment when she phoned?

It usually takes 2-3 days for a BACS payment to get to your account. However, when she gets her final payslip and you have checked what she has been paid for you should send a copy of your bank statement (blank out all other transactions with a marker pen except the payment on 3rd and your bank charges because of late payment) and ask them to compensate you for them.

 

Kind Regards

 

Ell-enn

The following can be found at Website of the UK government : Directgov

 

Should you be given a payslip?

 

By law, your employer must give you a written 'pay statement' - usually called a 'payslip' - when or before you are paid your wages. It must include your gross pay, take-home pay and any deductions.

Deductions that change (for example, Income Tax payments) must be individually listed each time. Fixed deductions (for example, trade union subscriptions) can be shown as one combined total provided you have been given an annual statement showing how that total breaks down. The annual statement must set out the amount of each fixed deduction and the intervals at which the amount is paid.

Additional information might be included on your pay slip, including your National Insurance Number, tax codes and hourly rate. Also, payments like overtime, tips, bonuses etc might be shown separately. However, none of this information is required to be on your payslip.

If you haven't received a payslip then you should first try following the steps set out in the article on resolving problems at work. If that doesn't help then you can apply to an Employment Tribunal.

 

Hope this is helpful

 

 

Kind Regards

Well, I'm refusing to settle on an offer of £500 for the charges I received due to unlawful wage deductions as the real figure is about £1200.

 

£550 of that is bank charges of less than 1 month with the A&L!!

 

Hopefully this will bring a comment from the Tribunal of how extraordinary it is that a debt of £550 can be accrued in such a short space of time!

 

But the point is, late or withheld, my wages were not paid and thus I claim my ex-employers are liable.

Hi Popeye - was there a clause in your OH's contract regarding repayment of the CRB?

Why £50? I thought the cost of an enhanced CRB was about £36.

Any advice given is done so on the assumption that recipients will also take professional advice where appropriate.
