    • Public backs debt enforcement to support vital public services - survey | CIVEA View the full article
    • Well the fact that he is doing this suggests that he has a certain awareness of his responsibility – but I really don't know what to advise. We know what your rights are – which is that he should give you a full refund. On the other hand, maybe this is the best you are going to get without court action. As he is prepared to make this gesture, maybe he is prepared to listen to reason and give you your money back – or most of it. Maybe you could offer him a deal that he takes the car back and returns thousand pounds to you – you might then eventually settle for £800 or £900 – which of course leaves you out of pocket but at least you would have escaped the problem. Given the risk of the problem of enforcement, maybe that could be a way to go. It's so difficult to know what to make of it. Maybe he feels vulnerable to the risk of a legal action against him. Maybe he doesn't understand the procedure and you could tell him that you will send the bailiffs to his home if he pushes it that way – but on the other hand maybe that will simply get his backup and you will lose the tiny shred of goodwill. I'm sorry, I still don't know what to say. I think we've explained the law to you and we try to outline the risks – but I think it's time now that you need to make your own decisions based on your own judgement. I don't envy you  
    • Hi guys, I'm not sure what happened to my last post about a court date, but I received the letter of small claims, where it stated the claimant has 28 days to pay the court fees, and after which each party has 14 days to send all of the parties copies of any documents they wish to rely on   Last week I received another form from the courts, remote hearing 13th October. So I have a few days to submit my documents. However the new letter is unclear as to whether this is now 48 hours or still 14 days. i will call the courts to give my number as adbvised in the letter   ive attached the letter with personal details removed each party liaise with each other to share their bundle?   Are there any examples of a defence bundle? ive found this case on here whiich seems similar   im presuming my bundle should include my defence documents, in the above link DX100Uk refers to a statement, anything else as it states at the hearing they may not have access to the court file?   My next  steps were: - call court to give telephone - wait to see if the court fee has been paid - is there a way to do this, just call the courts? deadline would have passed by now? - prepare bundle, not 100% sure of this but will start to compile what i have - await the other party bundle - hearing date    
    • (Moved to the Private Land Parking Enforcement forum).   The fact you're in Scotland definitely helps.  In England due to the POFA 2012 they can, under certain circumstances, peruse the keeper of the vehicle.  In Scotland they can only go after the driver - and they don't know who that is! 
    • Hi all,   I just wanted to give you an update and ask for further advice.   The car has been taken to a local garage today and we have been sent a video (just a close up of the engine with the broken pipe) of the suspected issue which they have said is an air flow pipe which has broken. He said it wasn’t broken when the car was sold to us and so he will buy the part & we pay for the labour.   We really feel that he should pay for this entirely, I also don’t want to set a precedent by paying for the labour if things deteriorate further with this car.  He also hasn’t stated how much the labour is, something we will ask when we respond to his message.   How do you think we should proceed?  I don’t want to take the wrong approach now.

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

Hi all. Maybe I am being a bit over concerned here. A while back someone advised that I should seek a referral to Occi Health. Given that I have been on anti-D's for over 3 years now. I spoke to the employers nurse a few days later and mentioned this to her. She said she would mention it and asked for my permission to contact my gp for my notes, which I granted.

 

Turns out my gp hasn't been contacted by my employer. On Monday I had a disciplinary for missing 3 days since January. In 2012 I missed 18 days in total (sick certificates have no bearing on whether or not you get a warning). Firstly they don't seem interested in helping to try reduce your absence, only reminding you that you need to turn up for work. Secondly, at the end of the meeting I mentioned the issue of my notes from the gp to the HR officer present. Her reply was, "You want us to see your notes?" Sounded to me like she was trying to make out I was doing something wrong.

 

My concern is that by trying to avoid recognising that I am being treated for depression and therefore have a disability. Then they don't have to treat me as such. Whether that would mean more leniancy in regards discipline or whatever.

 

Does this also mean that the duty of care they are so keen to talk about doesn't really exist! That is the impression I get.

 

Thanks in advance for any help. Even if it's only to say I have nothing to be concerned about.

at your disciplianry did you *tell* them you have a disability, and did they acknowledge it?

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

At past disciplinaries I have mentioned that I am being treated for depression. Unfortunately I didn't point out that it was a disability as I didn't think it was necessary to point that out.

clearly it is - depression doesn't always meet the 12 month requirement. If our does, tell them.

 

Not that I am sure it will make a difference to the outcome, as that is a lot of time off - but you want it on record for the future.

The doctor's note should only go to another health professional who will asses them and write a report. HR shouldnt have copies of your doctors notes unless you gave them absolute permission to have them.

It seems as though your employers dont realise that you are as ill as you are and that it is a long standing illness and thus can be classed as a disability. You need to tell them (in writing) and explain how it affects you and how you wish to be treated to help you cope and get back to working in your previous capacity. you need to make clear to them that the depression is basically a single serious event rather than a series of unrelated minor events but remember, they are not clairvoyant so it is up to you to progress this.
