    • You have fewer rights, not no rights. You can't take your employer to Employment Tribunal for Unfair Dismissal in most circumstances until you have worked there for 2 years. But you can take your employer to Tribunal to recover unpaid wages however short a time you have been there.   But your concern at the start was "... when I leave next year, will they pay my overtime" so you are planning to leave anyway?  Have they paid you overtime up to now? If so your payslips will be evidence that under your contract they pay overtime so if they don't you can bring a claim for unpaid overtime agaisnt them. Do you have any reason to think they won't pay it?   Keep your payslips!        
    • In the first two years they can pretty much get rid of you for any reason (or even no reason!), so it's perhaps a bad idea to give them any excuse until the two years are up.  Even then, establishing that say, you've been unfairly dismissed, is not always easy.   In the first two years I think you would be able to sue for "wrongful" (as opposed to "unfair") dismissal, but there you are talking about legal differences beyond my competence.   Is there a problem other than the lack of a written contract?  You could ask again (tactfully).  eg "Oh - I've just realised that I don't seem to have a copy of my terms and conditions.  Can you let me have a copy?"  If they keep refusing you might decide that either (1) there's something funny going on here, or (2) they're simply incompetent.   Assuming you pay tax and NI, you may want to check with HMRC that deductions are being paid over to them.  (I assume you can do this without your employer knowing - others will know how).   Are you being paid for overtime worked?
    • as it is on a separate pole and not on the building the height is immaterial. the deemed consent requires the height to be no more than...... and they dont have that because it isnt attached to the building Do not confuse the 2 things
    • yes please, go back to the very beginning to explain everything. We will need to know what you put down in writing fro your defence as well as the info on the signage that is contested. Did PE argue that the signage has chnaged since you entered the land and breached the contract or did they simply state that there were 5 signs when that is clearly not so? appeals are on either matters of fact or matters of law so if you want to raies the planning issue then that is a matter of law (no contract can be formed) but not raising it earlier will make that a difficult ne to put forward. It is unfortunately very common for PE and others to just tell out and out lies when it comes to signage etc so look up other cases where they ahve tried the same trick and use that as evidence if possible
    • I get the distinct impression they would not vote to bring down a government thats promising Brexit deal or no deal until after Oct and a hard Brexit.   I don't doubt that would suit Corbyn too.

I don't know if it's me being paranoid but is anyone else finding that when they really need to transfer a payment, check a payment etc. I get the message that the service is temporarily unavailable.

It really does seem that whenever a payment is due from my account and I try to check that a payment paid in has actually been credited I am unable to access my account - getting the message - this service is temporarily unavailable. When I do manage to get in to check, my payment has been delayed and I have incurred bank charges - usually for the mortgage payment which is payable to RBOS itself and they end up not payment themselves the mortgage but taking out overdraft charges for themselves.

I recently made a transfer on the 14th from my TSB account on a fast payment for mortgage that was due on 19th. It had not reached there on the 19th but on the 20th when I was able to check it had refused the payment and charged £38 fees. The transfer was shown on the 20th although it left my TSB account on the 18th.

3 or 4 years ago the bank made an error on an international transfer - they typed in the wrong number - eventually they admitted their error. This caused enormous problems as payments on our foreign account were not made and we incurred fees and legal proceedings were started against us (They're quick off the mark these Americans). It caused us a considerable amount of time and expenses sorting it out. The manager of the branch RBOS kept ringing constantly to ask whether we were managing to sort things out, causing us additional time lost. At th eend of the day, although the manager had promised we would get some compensation, we received nothing and when we asked were told that the manager was no longer working for them.

Every time we bring up the matter we are told that "we thought the matter had been sorted out".

This episode cost us an considerable amount of time and expenses and we have recived not a penny in compensation as they promised.

Because of personal circumstances at the time we have not had the time to pursue matters but now feel that we are ready to do so.

Does anyone know if there is a time limit in taking matters to the Ombudsman?

Have you spoken to the online helpdesk?

 

The lloydsTSB thingy was not a faster payment because it left on the 18th and arrived on the 20th which would match the timescale for a BACS not FPS payment.

The international payment issue, would be impossible to sort 4 years down the line.

Have never found link for Ombudsman timescale btw.

Maybe Lloyds TSB are at fault then as it seemed to state that all payments would be sent using the faster payments. Another payment which I sent at the same time reached its destination on the 18th yet it did not reach RBS until the 20th. When I managed to check on the 20th it showed that the payment had reached its destination, that the mortgage payment had been sent and we had been charged £38. However, I received a letter today saying that the mortgage had not been paid. Indeed when I checked there was no sign of the mortgage payment due on the 19th and had shown on the online statement on the 20th as having been paid.

Was it sent directly to the mortgage account or to the account where the mortgage was to be paid? Was it a Standing Order(which may not be covered by FPS)? Or was it a one off telephone or internet payment?

It was sent to the account from where the mortgage was to be paid. It was a one off payment over the internet.

That is very odd, because both LloydsTSB and NatWest are subscribers to the FPS and therefore it should have gone between banks within 2 hours. Worth asking LloydsTSB what the delay was. To me, it seems to have been sent via BACS and not via FPS(Faster Payments Service).

Just red through this and it says that Lloyds TSB Credit Cards cannot accept Fast Payments. Well the other payment I made on the same day that was credited on the 18th was a Lloyds TSB credit card. The RBS one then took another two days.

Have checked the sort code and it confirms that it accepts Faster Payments.

Query it with LloydsTSB and explain the circumstances and that both accounts should be able to send and receive faster payments. It is very strange that it is being send BACs rather than FPS

I contacted Lloyds and was told that Faster Payments cannot be guaranteed - sometimes they work and sometimes they don't.
