    • Thank you Bank Fodder for your reply. Il certainly do that
    • Googled it and Family Money Savers purchased the assets of Key Financial Claims, there’s also threads confirming that they have acted as agents of Key. A firm going into liquidation does not nullify a contract so whether or not you owe the money will depend on when the offer of compensation was made. I would call them in the first instance to question it, all CMCs have to record all calls now, and you can make the subject access request over the phone. The fact that it’s taken 6 and a half years doesn’t make the contract invalid. 
    • the business and assets of Key Financial Claims were bought out of administration on a going-concern basis on 10 December 2015 by connected company Family Money Savers (FMS) for an initial payment of £30,000.   addition, the company is due to receive 10 per cent of FMS' revenues from Key Financial Claims' pipeline and 25 per cent of FMS' own revenues of which the company previously received 15 per cent. ………..     pers i'd ignore them.  
    • Hi, I currently have a Court case going on against Hartley Wintney Motors whereby I am trying to reject a car under the 30-day thing, as the car broke down 29 days after I purchased it. I was notified by the Court that the Judge had ordered for it to be referred to the Motor Ombudsman for dispute resolution. TMO advised that this could take up to 6 months as they are currently dealing with cases older than mine. Yesterday, through the Money Claims portal, I had notification that HWM had made an offer. I am trying to claim back £3,100. That's the cost of the car at £2,500 + the cost of a warranty. So there offer is:  "We can pay £2500 on 23 October. You must deliver the vehicle with all keys, logbook by 23 September. If you are not agreeable, business is closing soon, and any judgement awarded in the small claims court is also unenforceable. You will then need to dispose the vehicle."   So, firstly, why should I have to return the car? It doesn't go. I would have to pay for a truck to get it back to them. If the business is closing why do they want the car? Why would I give them the car a whole month before they pay me? They could scrap the car and there goes my evidence. Is the business closing? Their website still has over 60 cars for sale. Are they just trying to force me to take their reduced offer?  I have checked on Companies House and in June they filed a notice for compulsory strike off. One week later the strike off action had been discontinued. I've also contacted TMO to try and ascertain if this offer is in conjunction with them, as I haven't received any communication from them advising the same. If my matter is still waiting to be dealt with by TMO, why would HWM just randomly make an offer, when from the beginning they have been adamant that I am in the wrong?   I would very much appreciate any thoughts from people.   Thank you.

Protected characteristics

 

pregnancy related illness cannot be used against you

 

Has your employer done a risk assessment on you and updated it regular since you notified them of your pregnancy

I'm not sure a bad back is necessarily pregnancy related on its own. What does your doctor say?


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

soft ligaments in my back due to pregnancy (extremely common i had it in my last pregnancy). no risk assessment done as far as i'm aware that might be what manager wants to discuss on weds i'm still worried that 3 sick days in 3 months doesn't look good and i'm going to get sacked.

Any employer is on a sticky wicket where a pregnancy is concerned

 

I do not wish to jump the gun and imply what this meeting is about. They may be a decent employer concerned on your welfare and implementing risk assessments

 

More likely they are worried about paying maternity pay and will imply it is best you consider your future employment options. That is me being Mr cynical

 

Even though you have been working less than 2 years, maternity issues trump current employment legislation as discrimination can be seen to be an issue

 

Update on Wednesday when you have had this meeting, Above all, agree to nothing there and then until you have had time to consider all options

If it is genuinely pregnancy related then it should be discounted for illness calculations.

 

I would suggest they refer you to occupational health so they can discuss adjustments to help you stay at work. If there is the slightest hint of a problem offer to see OH to have it validated that this is PG related, and get suggestions about what other work may be suitable.

As it is a bar work employer, i very much doubt they will have an OH department to refer to

 

Just my opinion that is

 

They cannot sack you on pregnancy matters

 

They can offer an incentive (bribe) which you may accept if they wish, or a different job role as a reasonable adjustment

 

But this is all supposition, and based on information not yet available,

 

DO NOT START TO WORK YOURSELF UP ON WHAT MIGHT BE
