    • I would have thought it easier in small claims.  Your wife very kindly and considerately wrote to her employer offering more notice than she was obliged to do.  No doubt she had the best interests of her employer in mind and wanted to give them adequate time to plan ahead and find a replacement.  To her amazement, her employer took advantage of her kindness and unreasonably treated her notice as taking immediate effect, blah, blah blah.   Personally, I think an argument like that is quite likely to succeed in small claims where they won't be accustomed to arguing the niceties of employment contracts.  It's obvious your wife is being taken advantage of.   Again, I think you are more likely to get an even-handed and fair hearing in small claims than at an ET.   However, I'm not a lawyer and I'm definitely not an employment lawyer.  See what others advise and whether anybody else thinks it would be easier and more likely to be successful simply to sue.  (Oh - and remember if you want to sue them for the money you've got six years to do so, whereas the time limits for ETs are ridiculously tight.  Can't remember off the top of my head but is it something stupid like 60 or 90 days?  Ridiculous).   Of course there may then be issues about getting future references from them.  But if you go down the ET route that'll likely be a problem anyway.    
    • say i was going to write to all these about the debts and try get deal to reduce monthly payments and stop all interest do I write to them first or do I stop payments then write to them ?   Same if I was going for a DRO do I just sort out and apply for that first or stop all payments then apply for it .   Also I see for a DRO it says ive got to go through  an authorised debt adviser so who do i go to about this and at moment we still on lockdown here in wales and not many places open .   Last off ive asked regarding pro rata forms and still cant find any 
    • Yes but I think in a small claims court it will be far harder to prove. I have plenty of evidence to discredit the Director but again it could still not be enough.   She will be a month with no money and I think it’s far more risky than a tribunal where this action alone could result in the desired outcome.   I have said to her to request a face to face meeting to enable both parties to conclude, ideally resolve and at that point we can decide what action we wish to take.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

My daughter was involved in an accident where someone crashed into the back of her, her policy was due to expire 5 days later. The new policy was already set up with the same firm and the first payment had been made. She was told by her insurance that her car was a write off a few days after the new policy had started. What will happen to the new policy? surely she won't have to pay it, will it be null and void?

 

Opinions and advice will be appreciated.

They're two separate contracts so the second policy won't be affected although if they quoted the renewal premium without an accident they may adjust the premium to account for the accident and any reduction in no claims bonus

I was thinking how can there be a second policy if the car was wrote off because of an accident during the first policy.

When was the renewal date of the policy?

 

Was the car still in your possession at the time of the renewal and if so was it drivable?

Similar thing happened to me, though my new policy was about 3 weeks old. Accident not my fault, insurance company would not refund the remaining 11 months on policy. Their reason was that my policy was for a year.

If this relatively recently, your Insurer should have allowed you to transfer a replacement vehicle onto the policy subject to any normal extra premium they would charge for covering that car

Accident 18th

Policy end date 22nd

New policy due to start 23rd

Car declared a write off 28th

The car wasn't drivable and was taken from the scene of the accident by the insurers repairer on the day of the accident i.e.18th.

What have the Insurers told you about any charges for the new policy or whether they will waive the premium?

On 30th she received an e-mail from the insurers saying that the new policy was cancelled as of the 30th and she has 7 days to reply and confirm the cancellation. They don't mention anything about charges. That's what I was trying to find out in my OP, would they try and make charges on a policy that wasn't due to start until after the accident had happened. I'm a bit wary of her confirming the cancellation date of the 30th, as this would imply that the policy had ran for 7 days and she would have something to pay. I was hoping that because the car was a write off before the start date then the new policy would simply be null and void. The e-mail also staes that, your policy is cancelled and will be deleted from the insurers' database, I'm hoping that bit is good news.Any advice is appreciatedthanks

Until you ask the Insurers how they wish to handle the cancellation / lapsing of the policy no one knows how they will propose to do it.

 

The best thing for you to do is to ask them, if they are looking to raise admin charges and charges for the cover provided then post back up with the amounts involved and we can answer the specific question
