    • Thanks dear taxhelper. I really appreciate it.   As a nurse i am part self employed and part PAYE ( i think i had mentioned that in my initial post#1).   But I totally agree, everything should balance out.   I have kind of worked out how much I owe them. I wont be able to pay it all because I am short of funds. The hospital had delayed processing one of my invoices and so the payment may r may not be in my bank account by the end of the month. I dont know that. If it does get into my account then im Ok paying my tax. if not then I wont have enough.   How should I play this? Shall I call HMRC and give them advance notice, stating that I may not be able to pay the lot as a lump sum? I have called the hospital and tried y best and they promised to pay me but they have let me down in the past, so I remain in limbo whether they will pay me in time or not

    • Maybe add in 5  therefore Devere have no cause for action
    • Excellent work!   I'd suggest a couple of tweaks.   In (1) it's just easier "The Defendant is the recorded keeper of xyz".   (3) should go at the end.  It's the summary and catch all clause.   Cut out (6).  CPR is evidence for the other points.   I think the bit about contempt of court is unnecessary, it's generally used in Witness Statements.   See what the others think, but I would be tempted to beef up (4).  Leave it as worded but at the end add "The non display of the permit is "de minimis".  Similarly leave (5) exactly as it is but conclude "Therefore I enjoy Supremacy of Contract".

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Atos tried to argue that they were not bound by the Equality Act when delivering WCAs, and so did not need to make reasonable adjustments for disabled people


er, why? You can't just choose not to follow the act.

I can see the work programme providers trying to use the 'not bound by the equality act' ploy when dealing with ESA referrals, most of their offices are rented space usually on the upper floors of buildings, the one I went to was definitely wheelchair unfriendly.


It's utterly ridiculous that organisations that are required to interview/assess people with significant physical problems can get out of making adjustments. In the case of ATOS my best guess is that it's another wheeze to bang someone off benefits for non attendance.

When I was on the WP as a JSA claimant, they claimed to help disabled people back into work. Yeah right. They weren't too happy when I declined their offer of helping me get back into when I was put on ESA.
