    • Hi,   My friend was being bullied by a manager who kept saying that anonymous people were complaining about her, she is asian and the minority where she works, she raised concerns in her meeting that she felt it had something to do with her race and gets treated differently to the rest of her colleagues due to off the cuff comments previously made and was told by her manager that as a minority she has to prove herself more as a minority in life and thats unfortunately the way it is. Following on from this they’re were more anonymous complaints all revolving around her attitude when speaking to the anonymous individual(s), she then had a meeting with hr initiated by her managwe and expressed her concerns, no outcome was given as the hr person said it was informal and a week later she has been told that she is being made redundant, my question is there were no specific incidents mentioned and my friend is still confused exactly how this came about but suspects it’s her manager who has taken a disliking to her, is this lawful?
    • Thanks for advice . I have spoken to the ICO , and their opinion is that there “may “ be cause for complaint . In the first instance I should write to the hospital (CEO)citing GDPR, giving them 30 days to respond . If the response is not to my satisfaction , then back to the ICO to raise a formal complaint . The ICO also suggested copying in the GMC with the complaint , I feel at present that is one step too far , perhaps I will sit on that until I get a reply from the hospital.
    • Thanks ethel and stu007   Yes, we had the kerb double dropped so me and my partner can park off the road. Before , just had one, and idiot would park in middle of properties so couldn't fit two cars on road outside. Has been issued a good 3 or 4 PCNs for obstructing since done. Its the back of the car, sometimes as far as a wheel but has a long boot/bumper which hangs over, so its not fully over. Recently seems to be as far as can without getting a ticket.   CCTV - shall read up thanks. Oh also, when I say 5 CCTV, that is 4 on property (100% out of boundary) and 1 in car which is lit up all night.   Does this count as harassment? The initial start of this thread, about 6 threatening letters asking me to pay for vehicle damage or court (nothing came of this) The constant parking annoyance (going on a couple of years) The loud music, witnessed by Env heath officer but not quite loud enough for notice, so letters sent. Paint 'accidentally' spilled on road outside my property (because was parked over our drive at time) Letters about rubbish outside my own garage at rear of properties and the 4 screws attaching bamboo to his fence. Then reported me for fly tipping, didnt go anywhere as officer agreed wasn't causing an issue. I have since sorted the screws and bamboo and idiots fence is literally falling apart. Concreting over 1/4 of my grass in rear lane whilst doing own part. Stupid things like having a BBQ and the parasol sticking way over the fence into my garden. All very subtle and annoying things to cause issues, without quite breaking the law.   The council are aware and claim powerless as own properties and the police pretty much are not interested.   What can be done?    Cheers   E!

Hi,

My landlord withheld my £1000 deposit at the end of my tenancy. It had also never been secured in a deposit scheme. I used moneyclaimonline to sue for the deposit amount plus claim fees plus 8%. I assumed that it is the court that awards the 3x rent as punishment. The landlord has since sent a cheque for the claimed amount but I DEFINITELY want it to go to court because they caused me alot of stress and inconvenience for the 3 months that I was without it.

 

Moneyclaim online are of no help at all via their email helpdesk. What are my options? Should I have claimed for 3x the amount on my form? Can I still make it proceed to court? Is it too late to do anything else? should I claim again for punitive damages? I have not yet cashed the cheque because I am unable to find out more information.

 

I would appreciate any help! Thank you

I thought you could only sue for 3 x deposit if it is not protected in a TDS and then only while you are a tennant. If you have taken action for the return of a deposit after you have left the tennancy and the landlord has complied before the court date I dont think the courts can do much else, TBH you have got your money back and that is what you wanted so i actually dont think trying to sue for stress etc is worth it now it willm only give you more hassle.

Have to agree with Assisted Blonde on this - if you've had your full deposit returned to you, it may be better to simply settle for that. The exception would be if you could prove that you had somehow suffered a financial loss as a result of him unreasonably withholding the deposit.

IIRC the Localism Act closed some LL loopholes ie

Action for deposit non-protection can be taken after end of T, poss up to 6 yr later

LL voluntary return of deposit may lessen the 1-3X penalty

Any claim for non-protection should be via County Court multi-track route, initial fee ~£1K and pot for unlimited defence costs in England, if rejected.

Judge decides what level of penalty to impose, not T.

Stress & inconvenience are not suitable grounds unless quantifiable financial loss can be shown.

IMO the Localism Act missed a trick, any non-protection penalty should be paid mainly to Exchequer, not T, as it has been shown in many cases that T suffered no sig financial loss through non-protection (compensation) but errant LLs should be 'fined'.
