    • Did you take screenshots or anything of the descriptions that you gave? Do you have any evidence to support you say? In any event, you paid for the insurance, you declared the parts having given the descriptions and they accepted it all on that basis. You have begun the claim procedure yet so I suggest that you do so. We'll see what happens. In any event, it could be said that the various sections are contradictory. Parts relating to vehicles are containing three separate sections and it is relatively difficult to discern which section a particular part should come into. Section 69 of the consumer rights act relates to ambiguities and basically says that an ambiguity must be interpreted in favour of the consumer.  
    • I have booked a Hotel/Flights Package with the above paying a 10% deposit with the balance due a month before travel next August.   On looking at Cancellation Charges they virtually say 100% 84 days out plus.   According to the Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements regulations 2018 - termination fees have to be "Reasonable and Justifiable"   I find it hard to comprehend how last minutes charges could fall into the above description.   For example the hotel is available on Booking.com for our dates with no pre-payment and free cancellation up to the day before arrival.   I'm not sure of their arrangement with BA but the tickets we reserved have doubled in price in the last week and could easily be resold.   I can't find any anecdotal evidence or Court Cases relating to them trying to collect Cancellation Charges from people who have not already paid the full balance and cancel. If I were to cancel 8 months out is it likely they would pursue me for the remaining balance.    
    • Hi   Something else I think you need to ask the Insurer for Clarification on is.   That you require full clarification on which clauses within the Terms & Condition of the Policy they are using to refuse payment under the Policy.     I would also consider sending the Insurer a Subject Access Request simply asking for 'ALL DATA' this covers whatever format they hold it in whether it be email/telephone recording/written format etc. (note: if they require you to use their own subject access request form always put 'ALL DATA' on their form)    
    • matters not what they come up with it's statute barred      
    • Revised defence:   The Defendant contends that the particulars of claim vague and are generic in nature. The Defendant accordingly sets out its case below and relies on CPR r 16.5 (3) in relation to any particular allegation to which a specific response has not been made.   1. The Claimant claims £2247.91 is owed under a regulated consumer credit account under reference xxxxxxx. I do not recall the precise details or agreement and have sought verification from the claimant and the claimants solicitor by way of a CPR 31.14 and section 78 request who are yet to fully comply. I dont believe they have provided this yet correctly   2. Paragraph 3 is denied.The Defendant contends that no notice of assignment pursuant to s.136 of the Law of Property Act & s.82 A of the CCA1974 has ever been served by the Claimant as alleged or at all. still stands   3. It is therefore denied with regards to the Defendant owing any monies to the Claimant, the Claimant has failed to provide any evidence of assignment/balance/breach requested by CPR 31. 14, therefore the Claimant is put to strict proof to:   (a) show how the Defendant has entered into an agreement; and (b) show and evidence any cause of action and service of a Default Notice or termination notice; and © show how the Defendant has reached the amount claimed for; and (d) show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim;   4. After receiving this claim I requested by way of a CPR 31.14 request and a section 78 request for copies of any documents referred to within the Claimants' particulars to establish what the claim is for. To date they have failed to comply to my CPR 31.14 request and also my section 78 request and remain in default with regards to this request.   5. As per Civil Procedure Rule 16.5(4), it is expected that the Claimant prove the allegation that the money is owed.   6. On the alternative, as the Claimant is an assignee of a debt, it is denied that the Claimant has the right to lay a claim due to contraventions of Section 136 of the Law of Property Act and Section 82A of the consumer credit Act 1974.   7. By reasons of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief.

how would you cope

 

i have just read on another forum that her/his father had died and she/he has taken 3 weeks leave and is being penalised for it at work.

 

im sorry but my whole world would fall apart, i will be utterly and completly devasted. i dont think i would be able to function for a long long time, my father is my world.

 

There is no way beaurocracy or what ever its called would control my TIME of grief.

 

why do we let 'rules' dictate grief

Sometimes I wish my parents would die and free me from all their baggage.

When my father passes away I'll be devastated, and miss him very much. The last place in the world I'd want to be at would be work, however as it stands there is nothing carved in law about allowing compassionate leave unless the compassionate leave is for the death of a dependant. Otherwise, no employer has any obligation to allow a person any time off whatsoever for a death, although most do allow some time off though this is unpaid and usually does not exceed three days.


My advice is based on my opinion, my experience and my education. I do not profess to be an expert in any given field. If requested, I will provide a link where possible to relevant legislation or guidance, so that advice provided can be confirmed and I do encourage others to follow those links for their own peace of mind. Sometimes my advice is not what people necesserily want to hear, but I will advise on facts as I know them - although it may not be what a person wants to hear it helps to know where you stand. Advice on the internet should never be a substitute for advice from your own legal professional with full knowledge of your individual case.

Please do not seek, offer or produce advice on a consumer issue via private message; it is against

forum rules to advise via private message, therefore pm's requesting private advice will not receive a response.

Gordons Barking, love your parents whilst you can, you'll have a long time to miss them.

 

If you were incapacitated through the death of a loved one, your doctor would almost certainly sign you off sick. At some stage though, you would have to return to 'normal' life. You don't ever get over the loss. You just have to learn to live without them.

In the words of the poet, 'they f*** you up your mum and dad'. If your Mum was Mel from Flight of the Concords and your dad was dirty Den you would be sick of them believe me.

hi everyone

 

i think time off regarding a close relitive at work is more of a matter of your managers disgretion. my mum died last year and i had 2 weeks off paid, i know tho that my company only pays you for 3 days paid including the funeral. i guess it just depends on your manager

Wishing them dead seems a bit harsh - they may not be perfect parents (and no-one is) but they're the only ones you'll have, if you really don't get on then you don't have to have anything to do with them.

 

In terms of employers managing of staff after bereavement - every one takes bereavement differently, some want to carry on at work and some need to be off, on the sick if necessary, whilst they come to terms with things. And of course the manner of the death will have an impact - if it is the expected death of an elderly parent this will impact differently to the sudden and unexpected death of a younger parent. Good employers will allow the individual to deal with things in their own way but there does come a point where the employer needs the employee back at work and getting on with the job. And getting back to a normal routine can help with the grieving process and help avoid pathological grief.

yeah, when my mums mum (my nan) died, my mums work said she could have a week off, but after 3 days had passed they kept ringing her up asking when she was coming back. she told them the funeral had been booked for the thursday so she would be back on the following monday.

Bugger me!, they rang her up on the morning of the funeral and told her she would have to come in at 10pm to work a night shift, when she refused they said they would put her on a disciplinary for refusing to come into work!, as her boss stated "well, once theyre dead its no use crying about it".

 

this, along with a long running vendetta between her and her boss, eventually led up to a disciplinary meeting 6 months later, where she was sacked, officially because she had taken too much time off sick (she didnt take my nans death very well and with the resulting awkwardness from her boss led to her being signed off sick with stress, resulting in her taking 2 months off work).

Unbeleivable the way some people treat others.

:mad:

 

I was lucky and had quite the opposite when both my parents passed away, with my mum I had 9 weeks off (paid sick), my manager kept in touch weekly by text and took me out for lunch the day before the funeral to take my mind off it, and I had 7 weeks with my dad. Both times they sent me flowers and cards. It really took off the pressure of worrying about work and ave me time to clear houses etc and look after my dad when my mum went. When I went back to work I was all the more determined to work hard as I had been treated so well.

My dad died many years ago when I was still at school, and my mum died in September. At first I was very relieved because the last few months were so difficult for her, and I was just glad it was all over. I had 3 days compassionate leave and 1 day off sick, but I'm beginning to grieve more now and really miss knowing that she's just there.

 

I have also lost 2 brothers when they were in their 30's. When the first one died I thought my world had come to an end. I went to his house every day and helped his widow sort things out, but one day, of all silly things, I found I had no clean knickers and had to do some washing. When the 2nd died I gave birth to my eldest 3 weeks later.

 

In other words - life goes on. It's never the same again, but it goes on.
