    • Nothing to do with your own Bank.     Try to withdraw the money from Parentpay early next week and if no joy contact them.   It may be that the money is showing, but has not fully cleared on their system,
    • Hi all,   Just an update with contractual terms. These terms are from a contract at a similar time to when Tracey started as we think they have changed since.   The contract reads as follows:   Termination of employment  Xxxxxxx (Nursery) will provide written notice of termination of your employment in accordance with statutory requirement (currently 1 week’s notice for each year of continuous service, up to a maximum 12 week’s notice).   Once you have successfully completed your probationary period for the company you are required to give 1 month’s written notice of termination of employment.   Regards   Matt             
    • Thanks for helping with the post;   Still waiting for a reply from the DPD.
    • I thank the Consumer Action Group Members for getting me this far in my case which is still in progress.   Situation: The Court has reversed earlier permission for me to rely on witness summaries.    The question upon which I am seeking help, please,  is - do I need to bother myself as to why the Court has reversed permission to rely on witness summaries?  If so, what line of logic or law can might I follow because clearly, the Court has said one thing and then another a few weeks later, of its own motion, the Court has reversed the earlier decision. I find this development quite extraordinary in the sense that as a result of being granted permission earlier, I served the three Witness Summons which had the Court stamp.   Background Having given me permission to serve 'Witness Summons' which I served on 3 hostile witnesses several weeks ago, the Court has now reversed it's earlier decision, and refused me permission to rely on 'witness summaries' pursuant to paragraph 32.9(2), citing that I have not shown steps taken to obtain witness statements from the 3 hostile witnesses.  I however, made two attempts to talk to the hostile witnesses who have been non responsive and I can evidence this.   I would be immensely grateful for some steer from Forum Members, please.

    • 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

My husband has just been sacked (i have posted about it in the employment section) would he qualify for any type of job seekers or any other benefits as i earn £15000 a year? My income does not cover the bills at all so anything he could get would be a great help. He wants to get a job asap!

 

Thanks in advance

If is actively seeking employment, available for employment and is capable of working and he has paid enough national insurance contributions, he might be able to claim Contribution Based Jobseekers Allowance for a maximum of six months. However, if he has had his employment terminated due to misconduct then they can apply a sanction. This means they may not pay any benefit from anything up to 26 weeks. Each case is decided upon its own circumstances re the termination of employment.

 

Once the six months has ended, he would not be able to claim Income Based Jobseekers as your income would be above the threshold. However, if he continues to sign on, the government will pay his national insurance during this time, which means his contributions will be up to date should he find himself needing to claim any other benefit in the future which relies on national insurance contributions.

 

If you receive Tax Credits, you should advise them of the change of circumstances to prevent any possible overpayment, which will rear it's ugly head at some point. If you do not receive Tax Credit, it may well be worth applying - you don't mention any children?

 

Try inputting your details here: http://www.entitledto.com

 

This will give you an idea of what can be claimed. you may even be eligible for benefit or a discount of council tax.


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.

Hi there I am in a similar position that my husband could not get JSA but my wage is lower than yours for us to live on so was stunned to say the least considering we have 2 children too.

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/benefits-tax-credits-minimum/200220-jsa-turned-down-have.html

 

As ErikaPNP said I got onto taxcredits and they have now sorted us out. My husband still cannot claim JSA though due to having paid class 2 NI contributions having been self employed up to 2 years ago. His last 2yrs with a company class 1 contributions wasnt enough to qualify :!:

Just a note to point out that DWP does not pay for children any more. The exception would be a few people who were claiming for kids before the rules changed, but these days parents/carers need to claim Child Tax Credit. I know that you know this, but it's something I hear often enough in my job that I feel it should be explicitly pointed out.

The idea that all politicians lie is music to the ears of the most egregious liars.
