    • not sure what you think is going on but they are nothing to do with any official court forms... it's merely a process and fleecing debt buyer must go thru should they be thinking of requesting northants bulk issue a speculative court claim on their behalf.   just send it as is dont change it.   as for d: just put .....the debt purchaser has yet to provide any or all of the required documentation.   dx    
    • if you type in auxillis is our search top right in the red banner you'll see this con over auxillis and supposed courtesy cars , but it's not its an HP agreement is well known here.   9/10 it's ends up with you fronting a court claim out of your own pocket for auxillis against the other parties insurance company that you don't stand a chance of ever winning for a claim against them for the excessive HP hire car costs you got scammed with.   may i be frank that whomever told you looking at the circumstances of you incident that you'd ever win a claim and it not be 50/50 was wrong.   you were in a narrow road in a housing estate with cars parked down one side on a blind sweeping bend exceeding the speed you should have been doing for the stated weather conditions. running into someone's side that pulls out infront of you in such an area and it being where you live too so you know it well would never be the other parties sole fault even without the poor weather. if this were to go to court IMHO you would lose.   sadly shows you were not p'haps driving with due care and attention. hence your ins companies stance.
    • I did see not to give those details out, but as these could wind up official court forms, I dont want to be on the wrong side of it.   the areas in boxes D and I, is it ok to say ""refer to appendix A, refer to appendix B"? There s a REALLy long list of "what the hell" I want out of them as this is making zero sense. Not only that, I've got a long list of "this is the hell" I need to send back in the dispute too.
    • the debt has been sold not passed on and yes there is no legislation that prevent a disputed debt being sold.   as for your other questions go read post 4 of that thread again carefully it's all there.   dx

    • 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!

I don't wish to attend my disciplinary meeting.

I've suffered from anxiety/depression for years and I don't feel up to it.

I am expecting to be sacked anyway and wouldn't go back even if I wasn't sacked.

 

They've not given me much notice.

Can I send them a letter which they'll likely receive on the day of the planned meeting saying that I am unavailable

and that they have permission to go ahead without me?

 

Thanks.

Yes, you don't have to be there. Are you sure that's what you want to do, though?

 

Hi Becky.

Thanks for your reply.

Yes, I think that's what I want. My mind can't handle any more stress.

And I wouldn't wish to work there anymore, anyway. People wouldn't treat me the same.

 

Would they likely pester me with future dates which I'd be asked to attend instead, or would they likely just go ahead with

the hearing without me since I'd given them my written permission?

Can you get a DR's note staying that your health is not the best at the moment?

 

I don't think you have to go.

 

I potentially could, but they've given me such short notice that I don't think that would be feasable.

They should really reschedule in the first instance - it would also give you the opportunity to consider whether not attending is what you really want. They are under an obligation to consider your well being too.

 

That said, if you have given unequivocal confirmation you don't want to attend, and you aren't likely to change your mind, there's nothing stopping you from ignoring further correspondence.

 

The other option is to ask a representative to attend on your behalf to state your case, if your employer would allow it.

I am also suspended from work, I got a call last week off a police officer to ask if I could attend an interview in the police station. I was paranoid, even though I was innocent.

In the police station they asked if I was we'll enough to answer the questions, and told me I could leave at anytime. I'm sure you'll get the same speech. You should be honest with them and tell them your in no fit state at the moment as you've been under a lot of stress. Your health is really important.

If you don't turn up, then they would possibly set another date. however as you have given written instruction, they probably would carry on in your absence.

 

In the past I didn't attend a discipline hearing and they carried on in my absence, it wasn't a sackable offence, so i gave it the contempt it deserved as I think these hearings are just going thro the motions and hardly justice.

 

As for Dr's notes, I find it very difficult to get any thing off the Dr or mental health team, they lock me up easy enough, but get them to write a letter explaining I'm not well, you can forget that.

 

If you don't want to work there any more, don't go, you mustn't let it upset you.

 

Now this is only my opinion, so probably not a lot of help to you, but it is from experience, they do like their little power games.

 

You could turn up, it shoudn't stress you as you don't want the job, I would turn up and be polite but make it last all day and really pee them off, act really thick and ask lots of questions, even when they explain something, keep asking as if you still don't get it.

 

Turn it round and make it a fun day out ;-) nothing to lose, they can't jail you.

 

Don't make yourself ill, you are important not them, you have a life and don't need power games to make you feel better.

Sorry just reread your post is this a hearing or a meeting.

 

A meeting is just to hear your side of the story, so they can decide if it needs to be taken further.

 

The hearing would be after the meeting, I think they have to then give 28 days notice ( but that may just be my company) for you to attend.

It is the hearing. Already had the investigation meeting.

 

How do I word the letter?

Meeting is supposed to be on Monday at Midday. If I send a letter today it should get there in the morning?

I'm even more anxious on the phone and so can't call them.

Myself I wouldn't bother with a letter.

 

Just something simple, along the lines of "I won't be coming to your discipline hearing at xxx on 25/12. I don't feel well enough to attend this or any other date. Please take this letter as permission to have the hearing in my absence and poke your discipline system up your ............. well you get the idea ;-)

If you are that ill you can request that the hold the meeting at your home. Not an entire meeting but someone who you find acceptable can take notes of what you want to say and then use that in the hearing deliberations. Insist that whoever is presenting against you doesnt have pre-notice of your statement.

Alternately send in a statement and ask for that to be considered in the smae way.

What would happen if I sent them a resignation letter? Would they then stop pestering me about the hearing?

And would that depend on whether they accept my resignation or not??

That would be a better idea, I have asked the same question, but I'm doing it for pension purposes.

 

I think if you wrote a nice letter, telling them your last day of service, so that you give them the necessary notice, also saying it's making you ill/worse.

 

They would probably prefer this as it would be easier for them, but as someone else said it might still affect a reference, but if you get sacked you don't get a good one anyway.

I'm confused about the 'giving them notice' part of it.

I mean, I dont intend to work another day there, so am I not giving them zero notice?? My last day of service has been and gone??

 

thanks.

Give them the appropriate amount of notice that you should give for a resignation. If you're sick stay signed off. Finally, if they fire you, then you've not lost out.

so you are giving them notice with immediate effect.

 

I think there is a statutory amount of notice you have to give an employer, not sure what they can do if you don't give notice.

 

Just send your resignation, I'm sure they would be more than pleased to put this to bed.
