    • I shall take your advice and sit tight with all of my evidence.  Thank you for your help and I will keep you updated. Have you heard of them ever following this through to court? 
    • Thanks for getting back to me. We are based in East Sussex. I don't know if they are engage with their tenants I am getting details from all the tenants
    • Thank you. There are two possible routes here. You could sue DPD – and then they would probably defend and they would also counterclaim for the unpaid delivery fee. Alternatively, they could go ahead and sue you and then you could counterclaim for the expenses of the damaged items. It would be better if they would sue you and the reason for that is that you would be the defendant and therefore if there was a hearing, it will be held at your local court which would save you a lot of inconvenience. If you sue them, then they become the defendant and if there was a hearing then it would be heard at their local court which means that you would have to travel and plan the logistics of this. Normally speaking you can counterclaim without paying a fee but where the value of a counterclaim is substantially greater than the value of the substantive claim, when you might have to pay a fee. If you with the claimant then you will certainly have to pay the fee anyway. So I suggest that your best interests are served by preparing to be sued and then if that happens then to defend and counterclaim. We will help you. If eventually they don't follow through with their threat, then you will have to sue them. Whichever is the case, you will need to be well prepared and that really means that you need to seek independent assessments and evaluations of the damage which has been caused and the value of putting it right. These independent assessments may cost you money – but eventually if you win then you will get this back. So for the moment, start gathering your evidence. Make sure that you are fully prepared with your independently verified documentation and then hope that they will follow through with their threat and sue you.
    • thanks for the response   The items arrived totally damaged and our customer sent them back and we had to re make all of the items again. This cost was just over £7000. Yes we are on a creidt type account, I asked for the compensation on the problem delivery and they decided to lie and cheat and then close the complaint. we did take photos and so did my customer, DPD said they could not use them as it didnt show enough detail. this again is untrue.    The invoice we are with holding is £530  We had to remake all of the work as mentioned above.    I hope this helps a little more  
    • Hi I use Martin Lewis Credit club and if I click on the defaults they say ‘account settled’ and the dates range from December 17 to Feb 18 under each tab. It also states the name of the new debt owner now and says last updated.    Will that be the default  dates or will I find it elsewhere?

    • 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 might be wrong but surely they would have pulled you in now if they had something on you , specially as they have your colleagues? What sort of industry is it in? (DOnt give out too much deatil!)

I think they can call you in at any time they liked although there maybe some law stating they should make you aware they are investigating you . There are some really clever peope on this site and Im sure there will be someone coming along and helping you soon. In the mean time Id carry on working (properly !!) and getting the pennies in . I know its really hard but try not to worry- In my opinion (remeber its a blonde , not legal opinion!) I think they would of called you in if they had anything on you :)

I've recently been suspended and the prospect of losing my job is making me regret one thing: not putting pennies aside for a rainy day.

 

If you got any feeling at all they might put you on suspension, with a potential outcome of losing your job, start easing back on the ol' expenses because the last thing you'll want in the worst-case-scenario is to end up jobless with no savings.

 

Not really an answer to your problem, but a fair suggestion none-the-less :)

Danoni, in January 2009, I was suspended from work, I had no savings, I knew I was to be sacked and the job market was rubbish. The thing to do now imho, is sort your CV out NOW, register with Recruitment agencies NOW even if it is temporary work. Don't be negative against the old company, simply state you are looking for a change. While you are suspended it will be easier if you have good transferrable skills.

As an aside, I did get sacked/dismissed/the boot and it was over 100 days until I next went back into work. It isn't easy and dismissal isn't great if you worked in the company a long time(for me over 10 years so could hardly skip that bit on the CV ;) ). However, being positive and making people aware that there are no outstanding issues with your former employer helps.

Gross misconduct dismissal is not the end of you getting a job but what doesn't kill ya makes you stronger :D

If the footage they used as evidence was the same as was shown to your colleagues, and the reason for disciplinary action was for the same incident, then yes they would have to discipline you at the same time. If they didn't your colleagues could claim that they were treated differently to you if you're allowed to continue working. If it was a number of seperate incidents with different evidence, then unfortunately it would be a case of when they noticed it. As far as I know, once they have any evidence they would have to deal with it straight away. It wouldn't simply be a case of addressing it once any staffing issues have been sorted out. Although, and again I have to use the word unfortunately, it may not be the easiest thing to prove if they are stringing you along at their convenience.

 

Best thing, as hard as it is, would be to follow Mrswesthams advice and try not to worry. Anyway, I hope it all blows over without and problems...well so long as what you did was more a case of being a bit of a scamp than anything too serious ;)

Also, some great advice form Danoni and yourbank. Put that worry into good use by getting some back up plans in place.

Large companies will have strict policies in place which they must follow to the letter if they dont want to lose tribunal cases on failing to follow procedure.

Standard process would be to investigate and suspend if they felt that they had sufficient reason and evidence ( this should be on full pay)

They will then invite to a disciplinary hearing and you should be allowed representation from a union rep or colleague. If they dismissed you, you would have the right of appeal to the next level of management.

I suggest you get a copy of the company disciplinary policies and read it thoroughly.

Also if you feel they have you bang to rights you can resign before they dismiss you.

Chances are they would have had you by now if the evidence was strong. CCTV doesnt always catch enough to be used as hard evidence, length of time is in your favour. If they do come up with something, make sure you look at it before answering any questions.
