    • Hi,  Here's my draft and please feel free to give me suggestion: ========== Dear Sir/Madam, TFL case number: **** I would like to thank TFL for providing me the opportunity to explain my behaviour. I realised the stupidity of what I have done and wish to seek a resolution to this matter. I have no valid excuse for this action and I am extremely sorry and deeply regret my action. I hope you will accept my sincere apologies. Nothing can justify my action. I am aware that TFL are only able to operate if everyone pays their fare correctly and I feel so guilty about attempting to breach public trust. This has caused me sleepness nights and raised my anxieties. I have history of anxiety. This has been a hard lesson learnt. I have never been in trouble with the law in the past and I ensure that I won’t be in the future. I am and will be using my oyster card (PAYG). I would like to humbly appeal to TFL to allow me to settle this matter out of court and avoid going to prosecution given the adverse consequences it can have on me and my family. I am very concerned that prosecution for the first time and I would like to make restitution for my action. Having a criminal offense on my record will have detrimental consequences on me. I have always been a law abiding person and have no previous offences.     I would really appreciate if I can be given the opportunity to pay for any unpaid fares plus any charges and/or administrative cost which have been incurred by TFL due to this incident. I am sincerely remorseful and ashamed of myself, and I fully appreciate the severity and stupidity of my transgressions. Again, I would like to offer my sincerest apologies. Yours Faithfully, My Name -----------------------------  
    • My wife dropped my daughter off at a kids party space on a trading estate and didn't think to look for signs as she parked outside the establishment. We got a £60 (reduced early payment) fine. Although now the signs are to be seen its a lot of money is this something we must now pay? Attached is the notice and the signs. Looks obvious now but when you are driving to a party warehouse on a trading estate and looking for the place itself its easy to miss this and especially when it seems logical to park there and walk in. My wife was there for 30 minutes. Thanks in advance Sam          A4.pdf
    • That's such a perverse judgment its almost unbelievable Looks like totally ignored everything and just gave judgement on something that's not compulsory as in name a driver or appeal did judge confuse having to name a driver in a motoring offence case like speeding with the civil?
    • The OH had letter from Resolvecall regarding a very old LTSB debt at the start of the month. Knowing it was SB, I sent off the SB letter to Intrum who owns the debt. They responded to the OH last week when I was away. They basically said speak to Resolvecall and the standard letter, we'll pop to your house malarkey.... Just ignore as Intrum own the debt and from the looks of it have ignored the SB letter? The OH gets twitchy with these things, thanks PM.

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

I have been in this employment for just over a year and I have noticed they will not allow any union or rep into the work place. I have witnessed a few people get the sack, when, in other work places they should have been on a final warning.

 

Now myself needs help. I have an excellent work record over the last 15 years and do not want it tarnished. I had an accident a few months ago to the head which has left me with a little imbalance. I can only like it to when you stumble over nothing and maybe happens twice a week.

 

My work colleagues know about the accident and so do the managers. I have had a letter through for an operation to correct the damage which I told the manager about. Later that afternoon I was called into the Office with a manager and the HR Department with them saying that a new person had joined the workforce and thought that I was intoxicated at work!

 

I explained to the management that they knew about my accident ect but they just tried to offer help with a 'drinking' problem . The HR rep was taking notes for my file and I really could not take it all in. I have a fantastic work record, great references, hardly any sick days and this has really upset me.

 

I am totally at a loss of what to do. management are well aware of what is wrong with me and knows my operation will fix it. Any advice will be of help has they will not allow a union or any kinds of rep in.

 

Thanks in advance

What reason have they given for not allowing a rep? They dont have to recognise a union, but they have to allow a rep of the workers choosing to accompany them to any disciplinary. Failure to do so will land them in serious trouble.

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

I was asked to go into the office. The door was locked and I was introduced to the HR personnel. Everything said was noted down, no action taken but I do not want this on my file.

 

A few things bother me about this, the person who said I was intoxicated was a new manager so why was I not pulled to one side and questioned (they left it a week to say something). If I was having a wobble because of my injury was was I not asked if I was okay?

 

I was not asked if I wanted someone there and I know that they do not recognise unions what-so-ever. I need advise on how to get my work file back to its original perfect state. Do I go to my doctors and get a written statement from him?

So no investigatory period, no pre-warning, no rep. Therefore it could be seen as unfair dismissal, or at least failure to follow the statutory right to allow an employee the right to be accompanied by a rep of their choosing.

 

Ask them to justify the alcoholism allegation. especially if you have told them of the serious accident a while ago. If you cna get a letter from your consultant, they wont have a leg to stand on.

 

In any case, you MUST report the company as they have broken the law.

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

I will go to the doctors to get a Statement. They are well aware of the imbalances because they have put me on light duties since until I have my operation. I went to work today and I was so paranoid that everyone knew and one point I was in tears.

Hi

 

I would also ask HR to confirm in writing if the meeting was a Disciplinary or investigation.

 

Also ask for a copy of the companies Disciplinary and Grievance Policy and Procedure.

Could they mention any of this in any references to future employers? There was no mention of a disciplinary I just need this off my file.

 

Thank you to all who has took the time to answer me, you are truly great people

Can we just backtrack please because I am not seeing what some others are.

 

 

Unless I am just not reading this correctly the OP hasn't been dismissed, it appears the meeting with HR could have been the investigation meeting particularly as no action was taken. There is no automatic right to allow accompaniment at an investigation meeting, if that's what it was.

 

 

There are more details needed really to establish the basis of the meeting and whether the OP has been told what is happening next.

 

 

You could ask your consultant for confirmation in writing of the injury, what symptoms are likely to be shown and the expectation of improvement after the operation. Explain the reason it is needed to the consultant and he/she may do it. show it to the company as evidence should it be needed, together with your operation letter. This of course depends on what the company intend to do next.

No I have not been dismissed. It was a planned meeting that I did not know about. A manager mentioned yesterday that he thought I looked intoxicated at work last week and so they decided to have me in the office with HR to determine what happened. I told them they knew about my impending operation, they knew how the injury effected me but instead of listening they offered support from the company nurse, counselling ect for alcohol abuse!

 

Now this is on my file I am guessing because notes where taken. I feel they did not listen to me and will now see me in a negative light. The accident happened 7 weeks ago and my operation is in 2 weeks time because they do not want to wait any longer for me to have it done.

They had all the facts before the new manager said something, they had all the facts before I went into the office, they had the facts when the meeting was being conducted. I explained all the facts in the meeting yet they offered counselling and visits to the nurse. This is becoming very frustrating . I just want to clear my name and know how to do it.

 

So what if it was not a disciplinary or just an investigation? I was not listened to. I was working very closely with another member of staff that day and all day who is gob smacked with what has happened!

I put that in the header because I was not sure if I was entitled to any kind of rep. The company does not allow either in any circumstance, disciplinary or investigation. I do not want to start a new thread asking "How do I remove written items from my work file" with all the information being in this thread. I did not mean to sound disrespectful I did not sleep well and it has been a long and tiring day. have a very good work ethos, a brilliant work record since 1999 and it has upset me greatly.

right now its just an investigation and following gp report it will probably go away.

 

head down try not to stress. storm in a tea cup.

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