    • I would have thought it easier in small claims.  Your wife very kindly and considerately wrote to her employer offering more notice than she was obliged to do.  No doubt she had the best interests of her employer in mind and wanted to give them adequate time to plan ahead and find a replacement.  To her amazement, her employer took advantage of her kindness and unreasonably treated her notice as taking immediate effect, blah, blah blah.   Personally, I think an argument like that is quite likely to succeed in small claims where they won't be accustomed to arguing the niceties of employment contracts.  It's obvious your wife is being taken advantage of.   Again, I think you are more likely to get an even-handed and fair hearing in small claims than at an ET.   However, I'm not a lawyer and I'm definitely not an employment lawyer.  See what others advise and whether anybody else thinks it would be easier and more likely to be successful simply to sue.  (Oh - and remember if you want to sue them for the money you've got six years to do so, whereas the time limits for ETs are ridiculously tight.  Can't remember off the top of my head but is it something stupid like 60 or 90 days?  Ridiculous).   Of course there may then be issues about getting future references from them.  But if you go down the ET route that'll likely be a problem anyway.    
    • say i was going to write to all these about the debts and try get deal to reduce monthly payments and stop all interest do I write to them first or do I stop payments then write to them ?   Same if I was going for a DRO do I just sort out and apply for that first or stop all payments then apply for it .   Also I see for a DRO it says ive got to go through  an authorised debt adviser so who do i go to about this and at moment we still on lockdown here in wales and not many places open .   Last off ive asked regarding pro rata forms and still cant find any 
    • Yes but I think in a small claims court it will be far harder to prove. I have plenty of evidence to discredit the Director but again it could still not be enough.   She will be a month with no money and I think it’s far more risky than a tribunal where this action alone could result in the desired outcome.   I have said to her to request a face to face meeting to enable both parties to conclude, ideally resolve and at that point we can decide what action we wish to take.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

I have been looking at my loan document from Welcome Finance dated 1/2/07. I have done some research and it seems to me that this document could be unenforceable. They have listed the acceptance fee and have not included it in the total amount of credit... BUT THEN THEY HAVE CHARGED ME INTEREST ON THE ACCEPTANCE FEE. Am I right in thinking this is unenforceable as this contravenes the CCA Act 1974??? Please help me if you know the law - as hours of internet investigations has just scratched the surface with me. My Credit Agreement is set out as follows -

 

KEY FINANCIAL INFORMATION

Amount of credit for the Goods M-R £5000 A

Amount of credit for the Insurances N £1000 B

Total Amount of Credit A+B £6000 C

 

Duration of Agreement 48 Months

 

Total amount payable for the Goods A+R+V £9343.04 D

Total amount payable for the Insurances N+W £1760.16 E

Total Amount Payable D+E £11103.20

 

Payable by 48 monthly payments of £227.14

 

plus the Option Fee which is payable at the same time as the final monthly Payment if you wish to exercise your option to purchase the Goods (see clause 4 of the Terms and Conditions)

 

APR 39.0%

 

OTHER FINANCIAL INFORMATION

 

Cash price of Goods £5100 M

Total cash price of Insurances £1000 N

Total cash price M+N £6100 O

 

Deposit: Cash £100 P

PX Allowance £0 Q

Total Deposit P+Q £100 R

 

Acceptance Fee £195 S

Finance charges for Goods £3948.04 T (This should be £3800)

Option Fee £100 U

Charge for credit for Goods S+T+U £4243.04 V

Charge for credit for Insurances £760.16 W

Total Charge for Credit V+W £5003.20

 

Rate of Interest on credit (per annum) 19%

------------------------------------------------------------

 

I have done some sums and have found they have charged me interest on the Acceptance Fee ON TOP OF the Total amount of credit.

 

Am I right in thinking this is the same situation as yours and therefore makes the agreement unenforceable?
