    • I would have thought it easier in small claims.  Your wife very kindly and considerately wrote to her employer offering more notice than she was obliged to do.  No doubt she had the best interests of her employer in mind and wanted to give them adequate time to plan ahead and find a replacement.  To her amazement, her employer took advantage of her kindness and unreasonably treated her notice as taking immediate effect, blah, blah blah.   Personally, I think an argument like that is quite likely to succeed in small claims where they won't be accustomed to arguing the niceties of employment contracts.  It's obvious your wife is being taken advantage of.   Again, I think you are more likely to get an even-handed and fair hearing in small claims than at an ET.   However, I'm not a lawyer and I'm definitely not an employment lawyer.  See what others advise and whether anybody else thinks it would be easier and more likely to be successful simply to sue.  (Oh - and remember if you want to sue them for the money you've got six years to do so, whereas the time limits for ETs are ridiculously tight.  Can't remember off the top of my head but is it something stupid like 60 or 90 days?  Ridiculous).   Of course there may then be issues about getting future references from them.  But if you go down the ET route that'll likely be a problem anyway.    
    • say i was going to write to all these about the debts and try get deal to reduce monthly payments and stop all interest do I write to them first or do I stop payments then write to them ?   Same if I was going for a DRO do I just sort out and apply for that first or stop all payments then apply for it .   Also I see for a DRO it says ive got to go through  an authorised debt adviser so who do i go to about this and at moment we still on lockdown here in wales and not many places open .   Last off ive asked regarding pro rata forms and still cant find any 
    • Yes but I think in a small claims court it will be far harder to prove. I have plenty of evidence to discredit the Director but again it could still not be enough.   She will be a month with no money and I think it’s far more risky than a tribunal where this action alone could result in the desired outcome.   I have said to her to request a face to face meeting to enable both parties to conclude, ideally resolve and at that point we can decide what action we wish to take.

    • 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

:???: Where do I start? .... I've been off for 2months for work related stress, my GP has put bullying as well as w.r.s on my fitnote. In the last 3 years I have faced my work colleagues (very underhand) sniping and generally putting me down and intimidating me - no physical violence or shouting - she's far too clever for that. I've been to my line manager several times - but he is friends with my work colleague and, hence, nothing's been done :mad2: I very much get the feeling they think I'm paranoid :-x Anyway, since being singed off I have had several phonecalls and 1 Occ Health appt and another to come. My manager (not the one referred to above) wants to meet with me but I just do not feel up to it at the moment, the thought of it makes me physically shake. However, I get the feeling that they are trying (by way of OH) to prove that I am unfit to work and ultimatetly sack me :!:. I feel very alone, Union not much help, and I don't know what to do to protect myself - I've only just been told (by ACAS) that I prob should have taken out a grievance :| Can anyone help keep me right please?!!? :???:

Hi, and welcome to the CAG...

 

Do you have copies of your GPs notes, on which he states 'bullying' as well as WRS?

 

a) Did you take any formal steps following those spells of bullying? Is there anything in writing, or did you attend any meeting with your line management to correct the problems you were experiencing?

Hi and thanks for reply. No - I didn't think to keep a copy of the GP's notes - will that be a problem?? A few years ago things came to a head - after I had attended meetings with HR & my line manager to advise them of things that were being said/done to upset me, and I felt they were doing nothing about it. I phond my LM to say I was having to leave the office as I was sitting in tears and very upset. I went off sick for a v short period (2wks) and, during this time got a letter to say that I was to attend a disciplinary hearingbecause I had left work. I attended this, althouugh I was terrified and handed them a document containing my past work history/issues, etc. be placed in my HR file. After hearing nothing further for 2 wks, I spoke to union rep to ask what was happening - she came back to me to say that If I agreed this document 'disappeared' the whole disciplinary would be forgotten about! I asked for this request to be put in writing, but was refused. Even now, I have no idea what happened to this document (I have a copy) but I was not - to my knowledge "formally" disciplined. The situation has been allowed to manifest over the preceeding years to get me to the stage I am now, with my concerns continually being ignored.

You can get copies of your medical records which should have records of the fit notes or you can request duplicate fit note but you would have to pay for both of these
