    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

Hi all,

 

I have a problem with my employment at the moment... The problem is that they have terminated my contract from work due to I do not have an indefinite leave visa on my new passport but I do have it on my old passport.

 

I have contacted UKBA regarding this issue and they suggested that it would be useful to fill in NTL form to transfer the visa from my old passport to my new one. However, I never had this issue before as I have recently worked for ASDA and other company in UK, becuase I do have an indefinite leave visa stamp on my old passport and I use it as a valid proof.

 

Also I requested UKBA to put me through their employment department to discuss on this matter further, but unfortunately they only speak to employers.

 

My question is that, why do they want me to have the same indefinite visa on my new passport where as I do have it on my old passport. Is this is a trick to get rid of me?..

 

Please help guys, my contract has been terminated due to this as you might know more then me.

 

Thanks for your time :)

 

Fuz.

I don't think this is a trick to get rid of you, just that the penalties on employers are so great in the event that a worker is found not to be eligible to work in the UK, that they do everything possible to make sure that they have the required proof.

 

Whilst your Visa may well be perfectly in order, many employers believe that it is a requirement that the stamp is in a current passport in order to be valid.

 

Have a look HERE for the guidance that employers have to take note of and the requirement to check documents. That may give you the answers you need, but ultimately you may well have to transfer the Visa as UKBA advise.

 

Did Asda give you any way back if you were to obtain the documents? How long did you work there?

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

Normally you woudl have had a letetr stating that you have indefinitely leave to remain in the country. Producing this letter is sufficient for employment purposes however if you leave the country with the intentoin of returning withinh 2 years you will require the visa. There is a charge associated with the visa for the new passport.

@Surfer01: Thanks for your reply, I do have an indefinite leave to enter the UK on my old passport but not on my new one, and recently I did not had a chance to go outside UK for awhile now bcoz of studies and job, so that i was not aware of this rule and i do not know if it is compulsary.

 

 

@Sidewinder: Thanks for ur reply m8 and ur answer does make sense... I was with ASDA for around 2/3 yrs and yes i did produced my old and new passport to them which showed my indefinite visa to stay in the uk...

 

the reason i had to leave ASDA was bcoz i found another job... and with my new job i worked for them roughly 3 yrs and recently i was asked to show my passport and on my new job, as I initially i produced my driving license as a proof and it was not intentional bcoz i had an option to bring in any proof with a photo id..

 

Also i know one to two people who has an indefinite stamp on their old passport but not on their new one and still working, one in Sainsbury and other works in Peacocks but now he has a British passport.

No - the termination of your employment is quite easily explained and should not be an issue in a reference, particularly if you explain the position during interview so that they don't have to guess when they do take up the reference.

 

Shame you have had to go through this, but HM Government since putting so heavy a responsibility on employers to prove eligibility to work, have made people very nervous about what they should and shouldn't be doing. About time they re-issued the guidelines as a list of FAQs rather than a lengthy piece of text which is open to interpretation.

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