    • Thank you for your responses. I brought my claim within the required period; I have now got my tribunal date 6 months after the incident first occurred. To clarify, I meant I have been researching the CAB website, I have not actually spoken to anyone about this matter due to workload and fear of being landed with a bill.   Best Regards, Scott
    • Hi, If you are getting advice from CAB it's best to stick with them. Getting advice from 2 different sources will cause conflict/confusion so It's best that you stick to the CAB as a pose to using this forum. People on here are volunteers and whilst we're happy to help, getting help from two sources at once isn't very good use of either places resources. I wish you the best for your case.  
    • There are no costs awards at an employment tribunal, let alone statutory interest. You have to do something really dumb to end up with a costs order such as refusing to follow court directions.
    • Can I ask how you were not timed out with an employment tribunal if you have been in dispute for six months? The reason why I ask is that recently submitted a claim in the county court for unpaid wages as was timed out a claim with the tribunal service? You only have three months to submit the claim from the cause of action.
    • Hello All After spending 6 months trying to get £1,500 of unpaid wages from my previous employer and going through early conciliation with ACAS, I now have an Employment Tribunal date of 20 / 09 / 2024. The Citizens Advice Bureau and posts on here have been really helpful, but I am unsure on a few points: 1) I have to send a document setting out how much money I am claiming - is there a template / recommended format for this? 2) Can I claim 8% statutory interest from the start, or is this just if they do not pay any award on time? 3) I was looking at getting a solicitor, but the estimated fees are £4,000 to £6,000 - would I be able to claim these fees from my employer if I win, presumably I would have to pay if I didn't win? 4) If I don't get a solicitor, I believe I can claim £41 per hour preparation time - how hard is this to prove / claim? I will probably think of other questions later, many thanks in advance for any responses to my questions or any other suggestions / advice. Best Regards, Scott

    • 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.

I've been to "Loro Parque" where that was filmed in Teneriffe, and if you see the bit with the little girl in a boat, my daughter has done that. My sister knows one of the trainers and took us behind the scenes to touch the dolphins aswell :)

I've touched a seal, but never a dolphin - I've been told there's something quite magical when you make contact with them.

My wife and I have swam with many dolphins and I can truly say that it is a beautiful experience (both in the wild and 'enclosed')

 

On one such experience (enclosed - but can't remember where) one of the younger dolphins gave you a 'dance'. Unknown at the time my wife was having 'Ostio' problems with her shoulder and hip. Anyway the young doplhin was a bit too energetic and my wife was in a bit of pain. The 'mother' doplhin then escorted my wife back to the side of the enclosure and promptly gave her a 'kiss and cuddle' :grouphug:. Not a dry eye in the room at that point - think we got it on video somewhere?

 

Absolutely magical:-D
