    • 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,

 

.In 2009 I made the mistake of jumping on the tram from West Croydon to home (Addiscombe) without paying as topping up my oyster would have meant missing the tram (I know).

 

Ticket Inspectors (and maybe Transport police, I don't recall) got on at East Croydon and my details were taken.

 

I was told I would get a fine, and I could appeal.

 

Fast forward three years and a 'removal notice' from Marston's arrives at my mum's address (I've been without a fixed address for years now), apparently I owe £592.

 

I called the bailiff and told him I wouldn't pay him £215 to turn up at an address I don't live at, but I would pay the rest.

 

He said no, and assured me that no matter what happened I would end up paying him in full because 'they always do'.

 

I did a little bit of research as that amount seemed excessive, seeing as I'd never even been sent a fine.

 

Apparently I was convicted (of Fare Evasion I think) in my absence in 2009.

 

I read about making a statutory declaration and did so at City of London Magistrates yesterday morning - the inital case was at Wimbledon apparently.

 

My declaration was more than 21 days after I found out but nobody at City of London raised that as an issue.

 

Once I'd finished the people at City of London told me they couldn't get through to Wimbledon to book another court date and told me to.

 

I rang them yesterday and now have a court date on the 14th of February.

What I need to know is, what happens next?

 

When and how will I find out if my declaration has been accepted?

 

Will I be summonsed again or should I just turn up if I hear nothing?

 

What happens at the new court date, will I have to explain my circumstances as to why I never knew about the previous hearing?

 

Is there any opportunity for me to attempt to settle out of court with TFL?

- I'd really like to avoid a conviction for not paying something like 70p

 

Thanks to whoever for the edit, I was a bit lost trying to work it out.

I will ask the site team to move this to the transport/oyster bit of the site, as you are more likely to get an informed response. My advice for what it is worth is to use the hearing to explain your situation, apologise and try to come to an arrangement to pay a reduced amount e.g. penalty fare amount.


We could do with some help from you.

Hello and welcome to CAG.

 

I expect the forum guys will be along later, as and when their day jobs permit.

 

I'm not one of the experts, but my understanding is that by signing the Stat Dec, you have reset the clock to where your original case was before the court hearing. I don't know if you can still try to negotiate with the transport company at this stage, but someone will. Do you have any paperwork from them or just the court reference/s please?

 

My best, HB

Hi, thanks for your reply honeybee

 

I have only ever received a removal notice. Nothing from tfl, and nothing from the courts. I moved out of my flat not long after the tram incident. I only managed a glimpse of the court papers yesterday to see the offence and the decision of the hearing.

 

Is there any chance that my Stat Dec will come back as rejected?

 

I do have a Case # on my Stat Dec, but that's it

Your initial post is a little confusing.

 

When you went to City of London Magistrates Court, did you make your declaration on oath that you did not know anything about this prosecution in front of Magistrates?

 

If so, and that declaration was accepted it will have been signed, stamped and dated by the Court. That action sets aside the original judgment and TfL are free to issue fresh Summons without time constraint.

 

 

If this did not happen, it would appear that your Court date on 14th February may be to make a fresh Statutory Declaration.

 

If you can clarify that, we may be able to help with other suggestions

Yes, I swore the declaration in court, in front of Magistrates. It was signed and date-stamped.

 

This is why I was confused, as I don't know exactly what the new court date is for, but I was told I had to arrange one.

The new hearing will I presume look at the original case and decide what penalty you have to pay.

Any chance of settling out of court / not getting a criminal record then?

Hello again.

 

You need someone with a bit more specialist knowledge to answer this for you. Normally, you can try to negotiate with the TOC up to the court date, but I forget how it happens when there's been a Stat Dec.

If it has been accepted that you knew nothing of the original action, you could contact the TOC, explain the piosition from your perspective, apologise and ask if they will allow the case to be resolved by administrative disposal.

 

There is no guarantee they will agree, but after a Stat. Dec. you are in exactly the same position as someone who is faced with the pre-summons letter first time around

Thanks, I have one last question if you don't mind: am I likely to hear from TFL again? Or will they skip that stage and I'll only hear from the courts?

The Court will notify TfL prosecutors that the original conviction is set aside and that they are free to re-issue a Summons

 

The next that you hear if anything and if you do not contact TfL, may well be a that new Summons to Court arrives with you requiring you to attend for hearing the allegation before Magistrates

Hello again.

 

Are you able to ring the court to ask what's happening? I think that's the quickest way to find out.

As advised, speak to the court and yes, I would turn up if you have been given a hearing date.
