    • 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!
    • 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

in 2008 i took a training provider to court and won the case, but was never paid the money. do i have to contact the court to impose a CCJ on the company?

 

my other query centres around a course i took several days ago in which the course examiner and another operative were negligent in their duties.

because it was only me and these two other personnel it's my word against theirs, except for a phone call which implicates them and a third party.

i'm wondering if a court can request a transcript from a private phone if i had to take them to court. which court has the power to do this if any?

i took my complaint to a small claims court on january 25 2008. the company never paid. i use to have my case number but i think i've lost that now.

surely the courts should hold records.

If you won your case then the Defendant already has a CCJ entered against them. Were they ordered to pay the debt outstanding by a certain date or were they given an opportunity to pay in instalments. If they have just ignored everything it is up to you to commence enforcement against them.

 

If they are a Company what status do they trade under - Sole Trader, Partnership, Ltd. It may be they have ceased trading in which case this could be the end of the matter. Did they ever defend the action or did you obtain Judgment in Default.

 

If you have lost your paperwork you must apply to the Court for copies.

i understand i would've had to enforce payment, but at £55 for a bailiff and the conditions placed on what they can cease i thought it would be impossible reclaiming my money through that route. i did pay them by debit card, but my bank told me i had no recourse as the card isn't a credit card.

 

i just checked and the company i took to court is still trading.

 

after this experience i got a credit card and paid for my present course using it. the problem stated in the OP is could a small claims court order for telephone call transcripts to be made public for purposes of a case against the company in question.

i know the high court will only take claims for £5k or more and my course was only £1165, but if you factor in the £50 train fare and the previously cancelled test date and the wilful negligence of the staff conducting the exam and there could be ground for punitive action.

 

p.s. i spoke to someone in the company and he said they will review the matter and get back to me this coming friday. i've asked them to pay for any future retests or a full refund of the monies paid.

if they don't agree to either solution i will try and recover the money from the credit card company. if that fails then i'd have to attempt legal redress.

When you enforce a judgement the cost is yours initially but this is added to the amount owed and you get that back. If the amount of the judgement is below £600 then you will need to appoint a bailiff.

 

If the amount of the judgement was over £600 then you have the right to transfer this to the High Court for a writ of Fi' Fa', this will be done for you by the appointed enforcement company and the cost is approx £50, again when they enforce and collect your judgement that fee is refunded to you along with any interest the judgment has accrued.

after this experience i got a credit card and paid for my present course using it. the problem stated in the OP is could a small claims court order for telephone call transcripts to be made public for purposes of a case against the company in question. You can serve them with a Subject Access Request and among everything they hold in relation to you they must by law provide you with a transcript or copy of any calls that you are aware have been recorded. If there is no record of the call having been recorded then obviously there will be nothing a court can do.

i know the high court will only take claims for £5k or more and my course was only £1165, but if you factor in the £50 train fare and the previously cancelled test date and the wilful negligence of the staff conducting the exam and there could be ground for punitive action.

If you have a judgment against the company then you should certainly post the name of the company here. We tend to find that many companies start to take an interest when their reputation goes public.

Don't protect them. Let us know who it is because it will warn others too.

 

Put the bailiffs in. Don't hang around. This business about them getting back to you is rubbish and you shouldn't have to put with it.

Put the bailiffs in now. The fee will be added to the amount levied against the company.

i thought (maybe) forum rules prohibited me from naming and shaming. if that isn't the case then the company in question is sterling training in basildon.

 

i heard a bailliff can't take belongings of a company they use in their normal course of business. that in theory could be anything and everything they use. if there was some way of reimbursement through their trading account...

There will be a lot that can be seized and yes it will play havoc with them but that is not your concern. Dependent on what you are owed will dictate the route you should take. Let's just say that if your Judgment is for more than £600 inc costs then you should have the CCJ transferred up to a High Court Writ and let a firm of HCEO's deal with it. They are much more tenacious than the Court Bailiff and will probably acheive success very quickly - cost of this which is added to their costs is £50. If for some reason they cannot execute then an abortive fee of £60 +VAT is payable.

if i gave the illusion i actually care what happens to the training provider, i'm sorry, as i don't. the fee they owed me was £200. i stupidly forgot to add the loss of salary and the cost of travel and other expenses when the case went before the judge. is there anyway of bumping up this figure so it crosses the £600 figure you've stated? can i resubmit?

 

a court bailliff could only handle non business goods of theirs and they will claim they use everything the bailliff might consider taking as a business item.

 

p.s. the £200 was a deposit on a course i never took, because they had sold me a course i never asked for and wouldn't allow me to change it to the one i had.

i'm having trouble making a new thread. every time i hit "new thread" it takes me to a blank screen where i can't type

any message.

 

my problems concern the 'other' company in my OP. today they did an internal investigation which resulted in a whitewash.

a subject access request won't give me the information i need. a court order would.

is there any way of applying for a court order prior to submitting a claim via the county court?
