    • Thanks for getting back to me HB and thank you for the welcome. I’ve had a read around and that’s why I posted. I’ve read the great advice given. Compliance does sound scary,  in fact the HMRC scares me!  I know by looking at what I was awarded which is far more than what I pay for child care. I don’t think I worked out the child care element properly when my son started school     
    • Hello and welcome to CAG.   If I remember rightly, compliance isn't usually as scary as it sounds.   The best thing to do is to have your information assembled and to tell the truth. I don't think anyone who has posted here has been prosecuted, the tax credit people normally arrange for you to repay what's been overpaid by deductions from future benefits.   Have a read around our HMRC forum for cases similar to yours where people have come back and told us the outcome.   Best, HB
    • Hi.   I'm so sorry about your news, it must have been a shock.   I haven't been in your situation but I would consider contacting the SRA tomorrow to find out what's happened. If your boss is telling the truth I imagine it's a serious breach of something.   I would also check out a benefits calculator like turn2us to find out what you might be entitled to in the way of benefits.   Sorry I can't help more.   HB   PS This is the SRA's web page on when a firm is closed down. I see there's a link for employees to follow. You may have seen it of course. https://www.sra.org.uk/consumers/problems/solicitor-closed-down/intervention/
    • I'm sure this is very shocking and distressing news. I suggest that you monitor this thread because I'm absolutely certain that one or two people who understand the whole area will probably come online and visit this thread and give you the advice you need.
    • Hi.  Hope you you are all keeping safe and well. I have worked for a law firm for nearly 21 years.  I and a junior were the only staff not to be Furloughed.  Yesterday teatime I received an email from my boss to say that on friday he was contacted by SRA to say that they were making an intervention order and Firm is closed as from tomorrow.  No information on what will happen just said we are redundant with immediate effect.  Obvs I have been scouring internet for information but my head is in pieces so just asking if anyone can offer me any information/advice on what I need to do.  Anything would be much appreciated

    • 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

Hi,

 

despite personal financial problems I am looking to employ a legal professional for my ET hearing. There are still a number of issues that the respondent has not resolved (missing documents etc) which still need chasing up.

 

Once I have a solicitor can I still continue to chase up the respondent about these pre-hearing issues (at relatively little expense to me) or can the respondent insist on only dealing with my appointed legal representative (at considerable expense to me)?

Any reason why you are unable to do this yourself?

Really, if you have a legal representative on record, that's who correspondence should go through. It's difficult to pick and choose what they do and don't do.

 

If they don't go on record, you won't have any more weight by employing a solicitor, but if they do and you want that weight, you'd have to pay to go through them.

Thanks becky2585,

 

I have asked around and I simply can't afford the five figure sums asked for - I didn't think it would be inexpensive, but the way the charges are structured was a surprise - and more expensive than I had thought.

 

Can the Tribunal insist that a claim has to be supported by legal representation rather than the claimant simply representing her/him self?

many cases at ET are self represented. in my experience ET judges tend to guide and help litigants in person.


I am not a lawyer, so all my advice is provided on the basis that you will check them with a trained legal professional with legal insurance.:(

Tribunals are highly sympathetic and very helpful towards unrepresented claimants. It's perfectly normal and you don't need representation.
