    • @dx100uk I appreciate your help but not the tone. At all.  I don’t know if you’ve ever known anybody that experiences mental health issues and I don’t plan on explaining all of mine here.  However I would expect some understanding and compassion that someone coming to this site for help might feel overwhelmed and struggle to deal with such a daunting situation when they have done nothing wrong.  Maybe are used to talking to people in such a way but I find it unacceptable.  I didn’t ask for a nursemaid despite that line repeating over and over again.  If not here to help people then what are they  here for? To make themselves feel superior by talking down to people?  It’s a shame to see this board reduced to this level of communication with people that are in need of help.     I am very far from someone that doesn’t self help.  Hence the questions to prepare fo next stages but like most humans have my own challenges as I’m sure we all do.

    • already 3 months, 1st of March was when the local CC apparently wrote to CC business centre. I will call them again tomorrow
    • Still no CCA compliant paperwork then.. that's good for you. Response from them regarding your defence filing is funny! we enclose the 'application' haha no agreement in sight but they will continue with court anyway! the cheek.. No chance they go near a courtroom with that paperwork as exhibits. My advice is re-read your whole thread, many questions answered in 2023 it would be good to refresh your memory regarding the paperwork. Then read a load more claimform threads over the next week, in your downtime if still traveling alot.

    • 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 am about to enter into negotiations with my employers for my employment to end through a compromise agreement. I am just enquiring whether anyone can advise what I can expect to receive. I have worked for my employers for 10.5 years and I know that they will have to pay 10 weeks notice plus holidays accrued. I am just wondering what I can expect for compensation. The reason this has come about is that I have been off sick since August 2012 and am now in the process of claiming ESA and I dont know when I will be ready to return to work so the best thing is if we came to some agreement.


Any advice would be appreciated.

Are you a member of a company pension scheme? If so what do they pay for ill health retiral?


Its tricky as your legal entitlement is probably notice plus accrued holiday - anything extra is a bonus.

Never assume anyone on the internet is who they say they are. Only rely on advice from insured professionals you have paid for!

Hello everyone,


I have had an update regarding the compromise agreement. My employer is offering me 3 months salary plus pay in lieu and holidays accrued. Do you think this is a decent enough payout? I am not sure what to expect but I have been off sick since last August and have worked for my employer for 10.5 years.


Thank you for any advice given.

Thank you so much for your replies. Emmzzi I have spoken to Acas and they say I am entitled to 10 weeks notice plus accrued holidays.


ericsbrother I presume the alternative would be for them to keep me employed and I would keep receiving ESA until I was eventually better. The problem being I have alot of health problems and I am not sure how long I am going to be off work.


Pusillanimous you mention that I would probably get 3 months pay anyway so really they are not giving me any incentive really - I was thinking they should pay me a little extra as I have worked really hard over the past 10 years including doing overtime when needed and not being paid for it as well as I was responsible for setting up a new office for them in another town. I didnt get paid extra for that even though I worked a couple of weekends and had my husband helping me as well.


I have never been in this situation before and I dont want to be greedy but I would like what I should be entitled to and not be ripped off.


Any advice would be appreciated.

Emmzzi, sorry forgot to reply to your question. Yes my employers did contribute to my ill health. When they first employed me in 2002 I told them about my ill health (ie suffer from crohns disease) and they were fine about it. In 2003 they "employed" another boss and whenever I was off sick he would have me in and saying they cannot manage with me having time off regularly. Anyway over the years I have been in and out of the office defending myself and I have given them access to my medical records twice but they still kept on at me. So yes I think they did contribute because I was stressing about my job all the time and if ever I had been off sick I was dreading going back to work.

SandraW68 Sit tight. Don't sign any CA you are not happy with. Perhaps a year's salary might be fair compensation (perhaps reduced by up to 35% for a speedy acceptance). From what you have said, I would submit a Disability discrimination grievance under the EQA clearly spelling out that they have contributed to your long-term ill health and that you are confident you would qualify under the Act. Mention what reasonable adjustments could have been made, but was not. (For example, phased returned to work; home working, etc.) Give a brief summary of what you have stated above, with dates. Chase up for a response after 14 days.


Make sure you submit an ET claim within three months of your grievance (?) (check what the deadlines are).

I wouldn't sign either as you waive your right to an I'll health claim later. Would your gp think work stress was a contributory factor? Would they write a letter to that effect?
