    • OK.  So you lent your car to a friend in 2019 and he racked up three parking tickets that he tells you he didn't know anything about(!).  You were the registered keeper (RK) at the time at your family address, but you got chucked out and could not change your RK address with DVLA because you were homeless.  You knew nothing about the parking tickets and enforcement action until you got a bailiffs' letter passed on to you.  You made an Out of Time (OOT) application in respect of one PCN but Birmingham CC objected to it and the traffic court rejected your application.  A solicitor helped you make OOTs in respect of the other two PCNs but you don't yet know the outcome of those two applications.   Is that the situation you are in?   dx100uk thinks you can resubmit the application saying your friend was the driver.  I don't think saying that will help as the driver is irrelevant.  It's the owner who is liable to pay the charge and that is the RK (unless the RK is a car hire firm).  I assume you are not a car hire firm so you are stuck with the liability, not the driver.   Whether you actually can resubmit an OOT once one has been rejected I do not know, but why not try.  What did the solicitor put on the applications they helped you with?  Did you not ask their advice about the rejected application while you were with them?  I think you would have to say something to the effect that you never received any paperwork in relation to the PCNs because you had been chucked out of your home and because you were homeless you did not update your address at DVLA.  That is the truth isn't it?  You don't want to lie on the application.   To me that's a good reason for you not doing anything about the PCNs, but I suspect that Birmingham CC will object again and that the traffic court will reject again.  And, as I said above, I don't even know if you can submit a second OOT application in respect of a PCN if the first has been rejected.   So it looks to me like you might be a bit stuck.   Unless dx100uk, or spaceman61, or another poster with expertise in local authority PCNs comes along I'm not sure what you do.   If you get no more helpful suggestions here you could try on National Consumer Service.  If you do go there, do not register with a hotmail address.  You will also need to provide them with a timeline of everything for all the documents you actually have, and you will need all the facts and dates etc at your fingertips.  And make sure they are accurate.   http://forums.National Consumer Service.com/index.php?showforum=30   And get your friend to contribute to paying off the PCNs.  Do you believe he really knew nothing about them?

    • Hi Charlie and welcome to CAG   As an Executor, you have a duty to insure the property and tell the currect insurer of the passing of the deceased.   Most insurers will refuse normal contents cover on a house left unoccupied beyond 60 days. So, unoccupied, the home will not be insured against break-in damage, theft, flood, accidental damage, etc.   You may be able to obtain FLEE insurance covering only Fire, Lightening, Explosion and Earthquake. It may cost more than usual contents cover  because the home is unoccupied, even though the level/amount of cover is less than for an occupied home.   As said here already, an Executor would be wise (or indeed have a duty) to remove valuables from the home if you have somewhere safer to store them pending Probate, distribution, sale, etc.   I hope if you can explain the insurance risks to YB and assure him that you are not taking items just for your own benefit, he may see sense.   Please keep us updated ............

I would suggest this is an extremely dangerous thing to do and if there is anyway you can be identified as the author of the page you are likely to be looking for another job very soon.

Hello there.

 

I agree with RMW, we see loads of problems stemming from facebook.

 

You've posted on the benefits section though, I'll move this to the employment forum and leave you a redirect to follow from this forum to the new one.

My company (5000+ employees) has a social media policy, tread carefully with this, you will have a "bringing the company into disrepute" clause in your T&C's somewhere.

Hello again.

 

I've asked for guidance on this from the rest of the team, because we don't want anyone to get into trouble.

 

If you PM me a link to the FB page, I'll have a look, no promises at this stage. For now, please don't put any clues about how to find it on this thread.

You really need to also read your companies Social Networking Policy and I would advise refraining from posting anything further on your FB at present.

 

Do any of your work colleagues or friends know you setup this FB page?

 

Also have you actually put a grievance in with your company about this issue?

Have you actually put a grievance into your employer about this issue or has any of employees actually asked why factory workers not getting bonus?

 

Also does your company have any policies on bonuses?

Hello again. Your first post seems to be at odds with this. If people start venting, it could go very badly wrong.

 

Due to the fact that my company has decided to pay all the office staff a bonus and all the managers graded M2 and above, and not the workers in the factory i have created a facebook page for ppl to vent, what are the legal implications of this and can i be dis-missed for it?

Do you have a union at work? I don't recommend sharing the FB link at this stage.

stu07, yes we have a grievance procedure, but even if we put one in what good will it do? they will turn around and tell us we didn't hit our tgt's again, they set them too high. plus all the managers get bonuses for keeping costs down, so spending money to fix machines hits into there bonus, we then have to run our machines making quick fixes where we can to try to hit our tgt's. if all the machines ran at 100% our tgt's would be achievable. but they wont spend money to fix them cos it comes out of there operating income and so we cant achieve our tgts. its loose loose for us all. any ideas?

So you haven't place a grievance with your employer but instead chose to setup a FB page for ppl to vent.

 

This could go very badly wrong and I assume some of those invited are employees of said company.

 

1. If so they could air/vent out on your FB page about employer.

2. How can you be sure the no one invited will not take a screenshot of that FB Page and it possibly getting into employers hands.

 

As has been suggested if you have a union I would approach them.

I cannot express the urgency you need to adopt and get that FB page deleted. Your managers will get wind of it, because somebody will tell them. For your own peace of mind and job security, I implore you to delete it
