    • 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 just want to know where I stand with sky

In June 2011 I took out a new full sky package which I understood had a 1year contract. Forward to June 2012 I phone sky to cancel the sports and movie packages to reduce my bill. I was offered the movies for a further 6 months at half price I was also told I could still cancel them at any time I accepted. As I knew come the dec I was moving in with my girlfriend who has the full sky package So in dec I phoned up to cancel my sky. No problems

Forward to today. I get a letter saying I owe sky £79 early termination fees. I phone sky to be told my account has an excess balance of £6. So I explain the letter. The operative goes of to check and comes back with

" when you took the movie deal in June you renewed yourself to a year long contract"

I certainly wasn't told this not would I have taken if as I knew I would be cancelling sky in dec

I have a note of their. Complaints team address. I just wonder if anybody else has had this nasty little surprise spring on them by sky and how they managed to resolve it

Any advice gratefully accepted

Hi Bluebear,

 

Certainly doesn't sound correct at all as if they except a cancellation they do not hold for any early termination charges - as if you do request to cancel and you still under contract you normally have to pay an early termination charge by card over the phone at the time of cancellation.

 

It does sound like and admin error and should be easily resolved with a quick email or call.

I see you have already called so i don't know why it wasn't sorted them so give them a quick email

Hi thanks for your responses I emailed sky highlighting the fact I had never been informed that I had allegedly renewed a year long contract and invited them to prove otherwise by checking the recording of the call and if they disputed it then I would require a full transcript of all that was said

I just received an email stating yes I had renewed but as a gesture of goodwill they will waive the termination fee. Result

Thanks again

Keep that email safe in case their collections department try to pursue.
