    • yes VERY only the police/council can fine you for parking by issuing a Penalty Charge Notice   if you look carefully, you'll see this is a private Parking Company and a Parking Charge Notice... in all effect - a speculative invoice for breaking some imaginary contract you entered into by using the payment machine. NOT A FINE.   sadly, as I think you've now realised, YOU DO NOT EVER APPEAL in 9/10 cases. as you've shot yourself in the foot by identifying yourself as the driver and lost any protection you had under the Protection Of Freedom Act [POFA] by doing so.   please complete this:   and scan up to ONE multipage PDF ONLY the NTK and any other communications to/from PE.   lastly STOP EVER RINGING AND USING EMAIL WITH THESE FLEECERS or THEIR DOGS. writing ONLY  from now on.    
    • No I did not confirm the site as I do not know which site it was. It was the first (and last ) time I had travelled on that road and I paid what I thought was the correct fee. I have been through every stage of this and still end up paying £425.50! This is extortion! I would now gladly pay the £2.50 again if they would allow it. I already paid £6. If you read Bailiff advice's post he has found a website that may be the one used as my bank statement states Bristol in the transaction and this website is owned by someone in that area (albeit a private home when googled). I will do my damnedest to get this money back and am seeing legal advise. If the original money has been taken then it is theft.
    • HI Sorry to say I'm back again with this one that I hoped might have gone away. It seems not.    I have today received a claim form which I've attached. Also I have attached the terms and conditions from the car park and the Claim Particulars.  A   ny advice on what to do please? I have not corresponded with VCS in any way. There is no evidence that I was the driver that I am aware of. There are no photos on their website other than of my car.   Thank you.      
    • What you needed to do was apply to have it set aside. Such an application needs to be made “promptly”.   You can expect that they’ll oppose such an application, and that gives them grounds to do so. Given that you are now 6+ months down the line from when you started posting about a set aside : they have a valid argument.
    • Unless I've missed it I don't think you have confirmed which site you paid the crossing charge to. It seems likely that you inadvertently paid the DartCharge to a 'look alike' site that isn't the official Dartford Crossing payment page. In that case your 'proof of payment' would not, unfortunately, be proof of payment to Highways England because you didn't pay Highways England,. You paid someone else who isn't authorised to receive money on behalf of Highways England.

Hello and welcome to CAG. I'm sure we can help you and hope the guys will be along later.

 

Have they told you what type of meeting this is please? Investigatory, for instance?

 

I don't think you need a solicitor at this stage, the guys will probaby tell you a bit more.

 

My best, HB

It's very rare that an employer will allow a solicitor to acompany you. You are normally allowed to bring a union rep or a fellow colleague. They are normally for providing moral support and to help ensure fairness.

 

From what you say in your post, this is an investigatory meeting, and, depending on it's outcome, could determine whether no action is taken, or the disciplinary process is started.

 

Suspension from work is a neutral act and not a predetermined sign of any sanction against you. You should still be getting paid.

I went awol from work for a week so Im not getting paid. Its an investigation the police are involved but have made no contact with me yet. I am not part of a union and Im worried that I could be led into answers that I dont really want to give.

I have not been paid for work previous to my suspension either. I have been told its because they dont have my current address is this lawful ?

I a bit confused - why are the police involved in an investigation into you going AWOL for a week? Or did you go AWOL because you found out the police were involved?

 

You really should be getting paid while suspended, and I can't see how them not having your current address will affect this unless you're paid by cheque which is sent to your home.

 

It might be uncomfortable, but I think you're going to have to give more information about your situation for people to be able to give you advice.

How long have you worked there? Is the allegation itself that you were AWOL or is this a byproduct of the disciplinary process?

Hi there thank you for replies.

 

I went Awol after finding out the police were involved. I have since spoke to my employers and Im currently suspended with pay.

 

My main problem is though I have not been paid last months wage. My rent has bounced and some bills, I have spoken to my employer and they at first said they had the wrong bank details and then changed their minds and said they didn't have a contact address or phone number for me. I was told yesterday it would get sorted that day but it still hasn't been. Is there much I can do about this ?

Are you able to give us an idea of what alleged wrongdoing is involved please? It might help us to advise you.

Im slightly worried if I write anything on here it could be used against me. Im accused of coercing money from someone I work with. Im not sure about the police as they are still yet to contact me.

Without the full facts I think it would be almost impossible for anyone to give you sound advice, I would suggest seeing a solicitor if there is a chance that a a criminal offence has been committed or alleged.
