    • 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

I ordered a PC from a well-known online retailer. Within 4 days it broke down and I had to obtain an RMA to return it for repair. It seems however they are in no hurry now to do so - apparently they are 'very busy' and 'the man' (just one?) who would repair it is away at the moment.It's been back a week but no one has even looked at it yet. This does not inspire confidence, I must say.

 

The PC was received here 10 days ago, so I assume that even though I returned it within 5 days, I am outside the 7 days distance selling laws. If I did decide to say to the retailer to keep the PC and issue a refund, what are my rights here?

 

Thanks,

 

Martin

The 7 days kicks in only after you have taken possession so yes you are right on that point regarding cancellation however they are now being unreasonable. Insist and get the refund as they are now being unreasonable as out own SOGA covers you!

Send them an email cancelling and back it up with a registered letter. Do that today if you can.

If you had cancelled within the 7 days from taking delivery then they would have no argument but I am unsure if returned for repair counts as cancellation.

I'll send them another email - they have at least replied to all my messages os far. I am not 'naming and shaming' the company here immediately, things may turn out OK. I am not sure about cancelling at this stage, but if, for instance another 10 days go by and I still don't have the PC, I'd need to know what my rights are. Thanks.

Your rights at the moment are that you are entitled to a replacement under SOGA as you are still within the 28 days. I certainly would not be waiting around for them to repair my brand new goods that I have paid upfront with my hard earned cash, but then that is just me. At the moment they are fobbing you off.

If I were you I would have a read through the Distance Selling Act because you returned the item within 5 dasy fo receiving it. You may still have good grounds to cancel and insist on an immediate replacement..

I have my doubts about this being areputable company as any reputtable company would have replaced the goods by now instead of waiting for a tech to come back from wherever they are holidating.

I told the company that I wanted to return the PC for a full refund. They apologised for the problems I had and agreed to a full refund with no argument, so all is well (except I don't have a PC now - have to start again).

 

Thanks for the comments,

 

Martin
