    • ok again thanks for all advice , im going to continue and struggle on paying the wifes debts and maybe look at getting reduced payments but as for mine i think ill go down the DRO route and try get it sorted but will see and open new bank account somewhere first
    • 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 OH is currently on contributions based JSA which is due to end in August. He lost his job in March and was owed £3k which we've been told we've no chance of getting as company has gone into liquidation. He's just been diagnosed with depression and has been referred. Is he likely to be moved onto IB and will this go on past the time when the JSA is supposed to stop?

IB doesn't exist any more for new claimants. This came into force on 27th October 2008. There is a benefit called ESA which has replaced it. He will not be moved on to ESA, he will have to claim it if he believes he is unfit for work. If he is unfit for work, he should not be claiming JSA, he should be claiming ESA. You can find all the information you need here: DWP - Employment and Support Allowance

I have a new twist to this question. Having applied for support for mortgage interest relief as advised by the Job Centre, we have now had my OHs £60 a week taken away altogether and given direct to our mortgage company and we are left with 10p (yes 10p!) a week!!! No-one told us that this was instead of JSA, in fact we were told by 3 different departments that his JSA was safe. He is now really poorly and I really don't think he's capable of going for an interview (chance would be a fine thing) let alone holding down a job.

 

If I can persuade him to go back to the docs does anyone know what will happen if he is told he's incapable of work? Will we get any kind of benefit? Will they continue to pay us SMI or won't we be eligible anymore?

 

We are getting desperate here. His ex has now stopped contact with his kids 'cos we can only afford to pay her £50 (we were paying her nearly £400 - a whole new thread I know and just for the record, the kids aren't suffering as she is well off in her own right. doesn't make it right I know and it's devastating him that he can't support them but at least she can put food on the table which I'm going to struggle to do this week - the only money I could give her this week was my son's birthday money I'd saved up).

 

Any help, encouragement or anything would be so appreciated.

 

Thanks

Thanks. I just feel so helpless. It's all such a terrible mess. We were surviving whilst he was still working but when the company he worked for went under in March owing us almost £3000 with no prospect of us getting it, that really was the final straw. And our mortgage company are being so pig-headed over it all. It's little wonder people just decide they can't go on. I have to admit I feel a bit like that at the moment :(:(

We thought about it but itll cost us £80 and we just havent got it. The chances are we wont get anything cos they've gone under and we'll be way down the list for any money there is. Persuaded him to go back to docs tomorrow so we'll see what he says.

My OH has just come back from the docs and he has signed him off with depression/panic attacks. He's scared to contact the Job Centre as he's worried they'll stop our mortgage interest support money.

 

What can I tell him?
