    • I have not used a comparison site for some time now... Do they really pass your info on? When it says "we sometimes use your information for third parties to make your life better..."  Basically we just sell your data to anyone who wants it?! 
    • Well who hasn't had a few debts passed on eh?!  And who really wants to give the light of day to any of these scumbags. I accumulated 35+ yellow tickets NTK when parking at my shop premises and they have definitely ben passed on now, not that I care, because in my opinion they should never have been granted access to patrol that car park. 
    • I've asked you a number of questions in my post and you haven't addressed them. Please would you do this. It's a bit difficult having to chase people for answers all the time   Just to add to my original doom and gloom scenario, even if the vehicle is returned to you and you accept it – if it happens to you have received any parking fines or anything else during the period which it has been out of your possession, then you could also be challenged for that. If the purchaser does contact you again and you eventually decide to accept the return of the vehicle, I certainly wouldn't do it without having first ascertained the name and address of the purchaser – and verified this by some evidence – and also get a signed statement that they were indeed in possession of the vehicle from XXX date until XXX date. All very complicated and distasteful – but I'm afraid that this is the consequence of what your daughter has done
    • Not really. The signs have to go where they are practical. Every single yellow should have a time plate, and the motorist has to look for it - you can just say you couldn't see it. If it's there, and I assume the CEO took a photo of it, then the driver has neglected his obligation to find out what the restriction is before parking.   The only way you might be able to argue this is if the sign is next to a separate stretch of yellow line - eg, separated from the one he parked on by, say, a road junction or a parking bay. Every individual stretch of line needs its own sign.
    • You haven't told us anything about the vehicle in terms of the make model mileage – price paid et cetera. Also where was it advertised and what the advertisement say? On the basis of what you have told us, you should have no problem asserting rights whether or not you are dealing with a trader or a private seller. However it would be helpful if it was a trader – and you say that it is and that you have evidence. The problem is, whether they trade. Do they have any seizable assets? You obviously dealing with somebody who is going to be very slippery even if you get a court judgement against them. Do you know where they live? Do they and their own property? And I suppose it won't be much of a comfort to you but it may be instructive to others when I say that you have managed to acquire all this evidence – but what a shame you didn't go about this before you parted with your money rather than afterwards.

Hi all - I have a question really. Whats the general consensus when declaring past depression on a mandatory medical questionnaire after getting a job?

 

I have acquired a little part time job at my university calling up alumni and fundraising whilst being at uni as I needed some extra cash. Its a minor job sitting down on the phone and calling people up, nothing more.

 

Our contracts were being prepped by HR in December, but they said we could all do some shifts, I racked up only 18 hours and I have two shifts booked for next week.

 

Recently we have been handed our contract packs and on the front page of the contract it says my employment is subject to "occupational health clearance" and included is a Medi-Gold medical questionnaire which has to be sent off.

 

On this questionnaire is a little thing for you to sign saying your happy to have your medical records accessed along with your happy to have a physical examination.

 

In the past I was treated for depression by the NHS and I know it is as a result on my record, however I left the service myself and i've been good mentally for a year and a bit so far.

 

I was speaking to friend recently about it who also had a mental illness at one stage in their life and they said not to declare it as they didn't do so in the past and are still within their job now, I spoke to my parents who both told me not to declare it as and I quote "people don't understand these problems nowadays.

 

I won't be able to get paid until I sign the contracts and do the medical questionnaire.

Thing is I want to declare it as I don't want any repercussions later down the line, but i'm guessing i'm going to lose my job now as a result?

 

Its not my first job, I have another job in retail and I didn't have to do this questionnaire so that's why i'm just generally unaware what would happen as a result of declaring it?

 

Thanks for reading.

I have to say that in my opinion honesty is the best policy. I think you should declare it as its not a reason why you can't do the job. However if it later came out that you hadn't declared it then that is a reason to lose your job.

Also these forms are a bit pointless as occy health is unlikely to contact your GP for your records unless there's an issue regarding disability and performance. I work in a high stress medical environment and despite having surgery on my back no one has ever contacted my GP. However don't treat that as a reason not to disclose as a failure to disclose could result in disciplinary action

Thanks for the prompt reply. :-)

 

I will declare it, just don't want to lose my job. That would suck badly.

Declare it. As the previous answer said,not declaring it would cost you the job anyway. Also I'm not sure if sacking you because of your past history would come under some discrimination or disability act.

 

No doubt someone else will be more clued up than me.

Wise action always declare anything that may come to light at a later date.

I agree that if you do not declare your history of depression and this is discovered at a later date you can be dismissed. However, I have just posted a new thread regarding issues which have arisen from declaring depression on a medical questionnaire.

I would say you're highly unlikely to be dismissed just because you were once depressed. Be honest and don't worry!

I would say declare it. If you end up needing support at work some time down the line as a result of depression, it may make it easier for them to assist if they were already aware of the problem.

 

I was in a similar situation when I started my current job, I had to fill out a medical questionnaire to be sent to our occupational health visitor and I had not long gone to the doctors with stress. I declared this on the form. The health visitor mentioned it on the first occasion she met with me, but not since. My employers have not mentioned to me that they are aware, so I assume they were not informed by the company who look after our occupational health. I imagine my occupation health visitor would mention it if she felt it was affecting my work though.


Any pearls of wisdom that I give on the CAG forums is based on previous experiences and knowledge I have gained from being on these forums.
