    • I've sent it off today fingers crossed. Did you not think much of the agreement I uploaded?
    • I used to work for the Dixions group and sold the warrenty.   Most of the time things went fine. when the store was not hitting targets or was in slow time as in income such as the summer things went nasty.   if you read the warrenty it is very clear that they will replace it with a similar product. often used and abused. so they give yours to someone else. and theres to you.   what you need to do is when you call them to speak with the managment, dicision makers and request a refund, credit or somehow replace your TV.   in the future. write all issues down so you have list of time spent on the phone, call outs etc.   it may take time. you will get your money back. NOW if you write to them use recoded dilvery. Emails count too. towards the 45 or the 60 day resoultion time.   Sorry i cant be pasifc.
    • (please remain safe, use protection and keep your eyes open. My uncle has got Crona and is on the ventilator with everyday his health going down hill. And he was the first person in our families to distribute and use gloves and masks. Even with that he got it. So sad.) Hi guys.   I am confused.   I ordered fish and chips and extra fish from Just Eat.   The food was on the dot if not few mins late. Which is not the issue.   The fish was reheated in hot oil, tasted bad and hand a odor to it.   Sometimes when you heat a pizza in the microwave it has that unique smell, I am sure we have all smelt it.   Now I have requested Just Eat to refund me for the bad food. What few agents in live chat and NOW the investigation team is saying, send them a photo of the food so the restaurant has a chance to see and respond to the image.   Confusion is, how can a image show my complaint? Smell? Bad taste? Reheated?   Please help I am out £27 and most of there response is copy and paste.   Thanks.

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

A friend of mine was in a motorbike accident on monday this week, basically rear ended and was thrown off the bike. Was taken to hospital with high blood pressure, no broken bones, but after about 24hrs the shock wore off and the muscular pain kicked in.

 

He is not able to move without pain, getting up and down stairs is a nightmare, and isn't able to sit at a computer without major pain (hence me typing this up)

 

His work have been ringing and expecting him to work as they don't believe his injuries would still be effecting him. He is worried that him being injured will have ramifications of his job, and is feeling harassed to go back to work, when he is still not over his injuries. He's worried that he'll lose his job because of the time off he's having to have because he would not be able to do his job without pain.

 

His job is serving customers, taking phone calls, sitting in the same place on a chair for 9 hours. Doesn't sound too extensive, but because of muscle pains, he feels he would not be able to do this.

I've advised him that if things are that bad, to get to see his gp and to have him signed off. Is this right, and would it stop the harassing expectations of work?

 

Thanks in advance.

Absolutely. If he is having that amount of pain, then a visit to the GP should be a must anyway, and his hospital attendance will already be a matter of record.

 

Unless there is a policy requiring more than is normally required, your friend should be able to sef-certify for the first week, but the employer should have a fit note after the seventh day of sickness. This will explain whether your friend is considered able to work and how any injury might prevent or restrict any activity relating to work. Is he on company sick pay or SSP?

 

He shouldn't be punished by the employer for a single instance of sickness or absence through injury, but it may become an issue of capability over time if it becomes an extended absence. Whilst the employer can maintain contact with the employee whist absent, he should not be harassed. It is also a good idea if your friend maintains contact with the employer to keep them up to date with his condition and there may also be an opportunity to perhaps discuss a phased return to work (lighter duties, shorter working hours etc), but only once he is fit and safe to do so. Problems generally advise when the employer is left guessing what the situation is.

 

If he is feeling genuinely harassed, then he can raise a grievance about he nature and frequency of calls he is getting and the pressure that he is being put under to return to work whilst still not physically able to carry out his normal (or any) role.

Any advice given is done so on the assumption that recipients will also take professional advice where appropriate.

I'm not sure if this is helpful or not, but would it help if your friend were to return part-time to start with, once he feels up to the journey and sitting still for a few hours?

having recently been in this position, I know how your friend is feeling. Shock caused adrenaline to be produced and this is used as a natural pail killer. Now it's worn off your friend is feeling every bump and bruise. It took me six weeks of physio to be able to sit at my office desk for periods longer than 30 minutes without feeling pain. Your friend needs professional advise. Does your friend have legal cover with his insurance?

Hi,

 

The best course of action, in this instance, is for your friend to see his GP who would draft a diagnosis and prognosis which could be handed over to his employer...

Ok my friend has now seen his doctor, and she was appalled that his employer had expecting him to work with the injuries and pain he has. He's been told to ring monday and if he's not coping by then, she'll sign him off.
