    • And as for “what if I get sick the last week” (or those last three days)......   well, you’d get sick pay. Would you go into your new workplace?   HMRC may not be bothered by 2 overlapping jobs of course, but if NHS CFS (counter fraud And security) noticed that either: a) you were claiming over-lapping sick pay for 2 jobs, or b) you were claiming sick pay for one job while well enough to turn in for the other: expect them to view at least one of the sick pay claims as fraudulent!   if you annoy your “difficult” manager : they might be difficult enough to highlight it for the local NHS CF specialist
    • Hello, Can someone advise if the attached is a valid charge please?  I had parked in the car park and paid but then got delayed and have ended up with a ticket for parking longer than I should have done.   I know they will refuse the appeal but is this charge enforceable?   Charge Notice.pdf
    • The dealer is called Carwise in Epping. It's not the most established of premises. When i was there i'd say there was about 10-15 cars inside and an office. I've seen these reviews of them which seem to replicate my experience. https://www.cardealerreviews.co.uk/dealership/hr-autos-epping-essex-england (note previous name). It's quite worrying.    
    • To me, it isn't just about social distancing and hygiene measures. I'm far from the first to say it but until there's a reliable track and trace system, I don't think this can be managed properly.   Children may not suffer as much as adults, although some do, they can be asymptomatic and pass on the virus to the rest of the family.   https://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/uk-news/lockdown-david-king-second-wave-18739973
    • When will most schools actually re-open in September ?   And when they open, will they be providing teaching over the number hours 9am to 3pm  ?   I am thinking of the school I attended, which was a large Victorian building, with many modern extensions.  The classrooms which could accommodate about 35 Children elbow to elbow, will only be able to accommodate 20 at the most with any reasonable distancing.   Or does the whole class  of say 35 stay in a bubble and the teachers move around to teach the different subjects ?    I can see many schools opening later in September, not for all pupils for all days and not doing the full hours.   This is going to be very difficult to manage for all those concerned, including parents looking to return to work.

    • 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

We're all moaning and whining about banks etc (rightly so btw). Why are wer using them? I know employers insist that employees MUST have a bank account...why? Surely it is discriminatory against those who do not WANT a bank account? Is it not a fundamental human right to decide how we are paid? I realise that employers don't LIKE paying cash...but can anyone point out where it's written in stone that we MUST have our pay placed into the coffers of a load of profiteering ********?

 

I know this may seem somewhat simplistic and perhaps a dumb question, but seriously, are we LEGALLY tied to being paid in such a manner?

 

Would be interested in other's peoples views on this.

You will find that it forms part of your contract of employment.

Why not have your pay paid into a Credit Union, they are pretty universal in accomodating eveyone now a days.

I may form part fo the contract of emplyment but does that mean it's right or legal? Who's Joe Bloggs to tell me I HAVE to have a bank account? Bottom line is I don't want one, and I would imagine a few ppl possibly feel the same.

Joe Bloggs may state that as part of the emploment contract offered that your salary may be required to be paid into a bank account ( a credit union account is virtually the same thing), but you don't have to accept the contract offered if you do not wish to do so. Perhaps the job and it's contract is more important than being unemployed?

Dave, the co founder of this site had exactly the same gripe with the system we have at the moment and I believe for a while went without a bank account by using a friends account.

 

I'm not suggesting this is a good idea, you would need to be very sure of your friend before you gave them access to your money so I think the closest you will come is to use a credit union, at least these are run by local people for local people.

Carnigli, ur missing the point. What im trying to say (and quite possibly making a pigs ear of it) is that we are being FORCED into using the banks. How many ppl know of credit union accounts? I know i didn't until it was mentioned in this thread.

 

And hiya Pete, yes you would need to be EXTREMELY sure. Hell I don't even trust my wife to that extent lol.

There's always building societies, by which I mean one of the few that is still a mutual.

Heya Caro. Can building societies be trusted? Sorry for the question but I don't know anything at all about building societies.

A lot of the builiding societies were sold off and the members got paid for their share of it, but a mutual building society belongs to it's members, ie customers so they take care of the customers instead of fat cat shareholders.

I don't know if they're all perfect but I would trust them a lot more than the banks.

No, you don't have to accept the contract, which means not accepting the job.

 

They can insist that they pay your wages into an account that accepts electronic payments, if you want the job that is.

I think I may be putting this across wrongly. If be insisting that payments are made electronically, is that insistance not discriminatory to those who do not believe nor trust banks?

Legally, I haven't seen anything one way or the other to say we are legally tied to being paid electronically or if we have a right to choose.

 

I work in payroll, and I know that it would be very problematic if anyone wanted paying in cash. Apart from a few quid in the petty cash box we simply don't deal in it, and I can't imagine for one moment that anyone would be allowed to take the time needed to travel to the bank, pay parking and travel expenses, and distribute to people at various locations, not to mention the safety aspect of carrying large amounts of cash.

Hi Rayne

 

:) my post #16 was mean't to be tongue in cheek poke :rolleyes: (but mis-fired)

 

I work in payroll, and I know that it would be very problematic if anyone wanted paying in cash. Apart from a few quid in the petty cash box we simply don't deal in it, and I can't imagine for one moment that anyone would be allowed to take the time needed to travel to the bank, pay parking and travel expenses, and distribute to people at various locations, not to mention the safety aspect of carrying large amounts of cash.

 

(Caro I apologise if this seems like teaching granmother to suck eggs. you may already know in's & out's of system.)

 

Before BACS became the normal payment method everyone was paid in cash.Security companies delivered cash to main payroll office and staff had to fill each pay envolope by hand.

 

Then to down size payroll dept they passed all payslips to accountants for them to fill wage packets, handed filled wage packets to Security company who then delivered it to relavent payroll office for the staff to collect.

the payment for this service was offset against company tax payments plus company saved money by not having large payroll dept to pay wages too.

 

Now with the BACS payment method it trims staff to minimum becuase it is automated ie; no human interface

 

Thats why most companies like you pay for services by Direct Debit ie; no human interface to pay.

 

 

:)
