    • 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

I have worked for my employers for 7 and a half years. All of them in a RAF Mess of one discription or other. I started in the mess I work at now over two years ago after being moved accused of being racist by a Morrocan lady who I thought was my friend. About a year ago o9ne of the receptionists in our mess was moved for one reason or another and another wnet off sick 10 months ago.


I had asked if I could go on and learn how to do the reception job and because I asked Iwas allowed to go on and do it.


I did not have any one to train me and most of the time would be on shift on my own. The other two ladies work the opposite shift together.


From the day I went on the reception the older of the two ladies has left me nasty notes, thrown her temper everythime she has took over shift from me and it has meant that I have stayed behind to try and finish my shift.


My manager complained that I should do what I could do and that the other shift could pick up anything I did not have time to do. Yeah like that happened, She said she would back me 100% as she knew what the other girls were like and she was grateful I had asked to go on reception because it got her out of a sticky situation.


I ended up putting a grievance in against the older of the receptionists because of the bullying tactics that she used. I made copies of all the notes I made, although I cannot make copies of the accusations made against me, which I do not feel were justified anyway and just her way of trying to undermine me.


No action was taken about the grievence and i put in another one three months later, I would say that was four months ago. Still getting little notes in the diary. PLease remember still not had any proper training. Again this was not acted on.


I have become quite unwell and depressed with the stress of it all and am now under the doctor for treatment.


To add insult to injury it was decided that yes they did need three receptionist, well four if you count the one that has been off work for ten months, and I had to apply for the position. I was took into the office today and told that I had not got the position because I went into the interview in my uniform. The interview was at 2.15 and I started work at 3.00, so I had not made an effort.


I was told that I got all the questions right that I was asked with good answers but had just not pushed myself enough to make them think I wanted the job. I was interviewed by the Deputy manager of the mess who is supposed to be in charge of reception. What did he think I was doiing there in the first place just going through the motions.


The trouble is I did not think I would get the job anyway, perhaps that was the problem, because I know these people and what they are like, and I think I know the who the person is sho got the job and am just waiting to have it confirmed..If it is the person I think it is he has left the company 3 times in 5 years when he could not get his own way and they have took him straight back.


I feel as if I have been used and thrown into the rubbish bin now they do not need or want me anymore.


Any advice, I would like to put in a grievance about the way I have been treated but dont know realy the best way to go about it.


I dont feel that I can even stay in this Mess in my former position, as it realy is a stressful enviroment now due to the lack of staff and the lack of traing that they get, which makes them ineffective. I wont be able to get a mess move because there are no positions available anywhere else as a supervisor and they wont pay me a super wage to do room cleaning.
