    • Thank you very much for your letter in regard to the above mentioned shipment.  Due to the high volume of parcels coursing through the courier network each day, undergoing continuous processing and handling, certain packages may experience delays or even can get lost in the course of this journey. Please note that due to the time that has passed, this shipment has been declared as lost.  I have today processed the claim and made offers to the value of £75 as a goodwill gesture without prejudice. I do acknowledge that you have mentioned in your letter that the value was higher, however, you did not take out any protection to that amount. The protection for this shipment was £20 and we will not be increasing our goodwill offer any further.    Please log into your account online in order to accept our offer. Once accepted, our accounts department will process the claim accordingly. The claim payment will be processed and received within 7 working days.                                  In addition, a refund of the carriage fee will be processed as a separate payment and will be received within 3 working days.  If I can further assist, please feel free to contact me.   I have also just noticed that yesterday afternoon they sent me an email stating that "after my request" they have refunded the cost of shipping. I did not request the refund so will mention that in my letter as well.
    • Hi I had to leave Dubai back in 2011, during the financial crisis. And only now have I received a letter from IDRWW. Is this anything to worry about about as I have 2 years left until it’s been 15 years(statute barred in Dubai). Worried as just got a mortgage 2 years ago. Could they force me in to bankruptcy? Red lots of different threads on here. And unsure what true and what isn’t. 
    • Not that TOR will see this now he's thrown in the hand grenade. Rayner has plenty of female supporters on X, for a start. As for the council and HMRC, fair enough and I thought Rayner was already in touch with them. That's where it should be dealt with, not the police force. @tobyjugg2 Daniel Finkelstein thinks the same as you about tax. The Fiver theory.

    • Often with the Likes of Lowells/ Overdales that 'proof' doesn't stand up to scrutiny.   Think about it like a game of poker, they want to intimidate you into folding and giving up as soon as possible, and just get you to pay up and roll over, that is their business model, make you think your cards are rubbish. What they don't expect, and their business isn't set up for it, is for a defendant to find this place and to learn that they have an amazing set of cards to play. Overdales don't have an infinite number of lawyers, paralegals etc, and the time / money to spend on expensive court cases, that they are highly likely to lose, hence how hard they will try to get you to roll over.  Even to the extent of faking documents, which they need to do because the debts that they purchased were so cheap, in the first place. Nevertheless it works in most cases, most people chicken out, when they are so close to winning, and a holding defence is like slowly showing Overdales your first card, and a marker of intention that this could get tricky for them. In fact it may be,  although by no means guaranteed that it won't even go any further than that.  Even if it does, what they send you back will almost certainly have more holes than Swiss Cheese, and if with the help you receive here, you can identify those weaknesses and get the whole thing tossed in the bin.

    • 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.

Hi

 

I am writing on behalf of my Son-In-Law who has just been sacked.

 

He is putting together a grevance against 3 of his peers, as well as an appeal against his dismissal.

 

The questions he needs answering are:

 

His company was taken over by another company and he was made to re-apply for the managerial position he allready had, this was by way of an interview and exam, he failed the exam by 1 point and also was told that he didn't have the relevant experience to remain in that role as manager, therfore he was moved sideways but retained the same salary, the person that got his position didn't take any exam initially but was given the position, he later took the exam after my Son-in-Law complained about the discrimination, under different conditions than my Son-In-Law did, and he had the General Manager with him, locked in a room whilst the exam was taking place, scoring 96%?!?!. On that basis we feel that there was discrimination against him?

 

Secondly, my Son-In-Law spoke to his General Manager, and indicated to him that he was thinking about putting in a greivance about the Regional Manager, later in the day his Line Manager spoke to him and said that he had heard from the General Manager about the greivance and was it true, and also that the Regional Manager had got to know about it from the General Manager, this caused my Son-In-Law to retract the greivance. Is this breaking confidentiality

 

These we feel are just 2 of the reasons why my Son-In-Law has been dismissed, there are a lot more fabrication of evidence and discrimination details in his appeal but I don't need to list them for now.

 

I would like for someone to give thier opinion on the 2 points above though.

 

Cheers

 

Derek

Discrimination in employment law relates to matters of gender, race etc - so not applicable here.

 

With grievances - do it or not, if he put it in the RM would surely find out about it anyway?

 

Usual questions - how long had he been employed, was the dismissal procedure followed, what was the reason given for the dismissal?

 

And, what is the desired outcome? Putting in a greivance against peers (for what?) is unlikely to accomplish anything at this stage - choose your battles! Donlt fight them all at once because you are angry.

 

If there is a genuine unfair dismissal go straight to ET form filling while the appeal is ongoing.

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

Right:

 

Employed for 5 years.

Yes the correct proceedure was followed.

Reason for dismissal - not carrying out proceedures as required after final written warning (which was in itself we believe and can proove there was fabricated evidence) also other members of staff have been "not carrying out proceedures as required", but have not been disciplined (discrimination?)

 

He is appealing against his dismissal but does not expect to have the decision changed, and is already compiling an ET application.

Did he appeal the final written warning at the time?

 

You seem to be saying that, while on a final warning, he did indeed not follow procedures. Is that correct?

 

So the point of debate is inequality of treatment.

 

You have to give up the idea of discrimination. it isn't, in the legal sense.

 

Got a union rep?

Yes he did appeal the final written warning but it stayed.

 

Whilst on a final written warning he was doing the same as everyone else, not following correct proceedures, and there are mitigating circumstances, and evidence was fabricated for other things he was supposed to be doing wrong, yet nobody can prove it was him, yet he was the only one that was disciplined and consequently dismissed.

 

He is in a union, although they appear to be as much use as a chocolate fireguard.

 

Our belief is that the RM wanted to get rid of him without redundancy, as he was the only remaining employee in that department that had transferred over from the previous company, and he had got wind of a possible grievance against him, so has invented reasons for dismissal.

 

My Son-In-Law has evidence to prove that he was not responsible for what he is being accused of but wishes to hold it back for an ET if necessary.

The problem is that he has admitted to not following procedures, so whilst on a final written warning, they're entitled to dismiss him.

 

It would be worth therefore concentrating heavily on the unfairness of the original disciplinary sanction of the final warning, therefore. That's if he has grounds to do so.

 

What were the exact circumstances of the final warning?

Generally I would say that it is unacceptable to fail to follow proper procedures when on a final written warning, as long as employees are made aware of those procedures and proper training is given if required. However it will depend on the facts. It is very difficult to comment on whether the dismissal was justified unless we know what he is accused of, this is a factual question not a legal question.

 

You have given us some excuses, but I don't think these sound very strong. Inequality of treatment is not illegal unless it is due to age/gender/race and so on. In any event, other people doing things wrong is never a good reason for doing things wrong yourself, and being on a final written warning would give the employer a valid reason to watch your son more closely than other employees. The real issue is whether the misconduct your son is accused of justifies the dismissal.

 

He will need to have worked for the employer for a full year to claim unfair dismissal.

 

Did he get notice pay? If it was not a gross misconduct dismissal, he is entitled to notice as per his employment contract and the minimum notice periods set out in section 86 Employment Rights Act 1996 which you can google.
