    • I'm interested in your comments as to why should you have to explain any details about the condition of the car – basically because you feel that you have got adequate rights under the distance selling rules When you litigate, if you have two good arguments to base your claim upon then you are better off using both. That means that if one founders, the other one may hold up. I think you should give us some information about the condition of the car and also give us insight of the advertisement and the claims made for it we may be able to view some advice on that issue.  
    • What do you think your options (realistically) are?

    • Forgot to add that I presume I would need to issue the claim next Thursday which would have reached the end of the 7 day notice before action letter sent to the dealer last Wednesday 
    • I have not done so yet no, as this is completely alien to me, this is why I have requested assistance from CA, if I had known that consumer direct wouldn't be able to help me in this regard I would have contacted them sooner.    I could post the response I had from the dealer however there probably isn't enough space on the server! It was quite the novel of nonsense. This would maybe give you an insight as to what I am dealing with though. That said, you probably already have a fair idea!

    • 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 guys

 

i work for a company called xxxxxxxx a company who are well known for ripping people off on the job,

I work on the Virgin contract and had a job which involved abit of cable clipping and cable splicing

as the customer didnt want extra holes drilling through her conservatory

 

 

luckily i found an exsisting RG6 sky cable on the roof of her property which i barreled on to and tucked behind the gutter

no tugging or pulling involved as i just slot it behind and then clipped the way around to my access point.

 

6 weeks had passed since the job had been completed and the customer claims that i have pulled the guttering away from the fascia

and has caused a leak and claims she has had the guttering people out to take a look at it would cost £300 but has no proof of a quote in writing

, any invoices to the job being completed or any photo evidence to support her claim against the guttering being damaged.

 

I phoned my manager today to be told that i have had enough and have been asking for the proof to this claim

if he has it i will hold my hands up and settle the damages

he claims there is no proof of the work being done or any quotes, invoice etc

and its classed as SETTLEMENT OF CLAIM which means they arnt required to provide me with any information.

 

The company is a complete and utter joke and have no idea how these people are still running

 

They have already took £50 of the settlement from my wages without telling me about it,

signing any paperwork to show i approve of it and the contract does not state they are allowed also

 

I have £250 remaining and another £50 is due to be taken from me on 28th of this month

 

DO I HAVE ANYWHERE TO STAND HERE IN TERMS OF A TRIBEUNIAL IVE TRIED MY HARDEST TO WORK WITH THEM

ON THIS MATTER BUT NOTHING AS THEY ARE NOT INTERESTED THE AMOUNT OF PEOPLE WHO

HAVE LEFT THE COMPANY DUE TO THESE PEOPLE I HAVE LOST COUNT

Have a read of http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1996/18/section/13

 

In short, the company must have your written consent (e.g. a signed employment contract saying they can do this) to make deductions from wages.

 

If they don't have that, you can complain, and ultimately sue for unpaid wages either in the Employment Tribunal or by bringing a small court claim. Since Employment Tribunal fees were introduced, it is now cheaper to bring a small claim.

They cannot take money from your wages unless it is stipulated in your contract of employment

 

Making you pay for any damage should be included in the companies own insurance liability

 

Accidents do happen

 

What provison is in your contract of employment about taking money from your wages, and i am not talking of an overpayment of wages.

 

I am talking personal liability for any damage caused

Caution we have made the assumption here that the OP has a contract of employment where they may have a contract FOR employment.

 

Simplistic terms, is the OP a contractor or an employee?

That is exactly what i thought to be fair, Im guessing you guys know what TUPE means i worked for a previous company on the same job but they lost the contract to the company i work on behalf of then i know work for the new contractor so i went over on my old terms and conditions, when my previous contractor used to charge you for lost tooling etc they would write it down on a company letter headed paper with breakdown of charges (tools) and ask you to sign it before you paid the charge this company seems to do the opposite.

 

I signed a few documents for the new guys but didnt recall anything in the documents saying they have the right to take money from our wages as it suits them

 

What annoys me no proof has been supplied regarding the damages so why am i the one to cough up the charges

 

Thanks

My thinking exactly

 

Public liability insurance

 

The employee should not have to bear the cost of this which the company has to have by law

 

This is like if you get a parking ticket in a works vehicle, the employee is not liable for the penalty amount unless it is written into their contract of employment

 

Occupational hazard

Ah well now you mention the parking tickets thats another thing they try to throw onto the employee as you say i am employed (not self employed) this company is also in the middle of bully tactics to try sign us over one of them was threat of redundancy and then retaken back on via there terms i.e self employed

 

I am thinking of writing to my Human Resources department with some of the information you have provided

 

Anything else i should add do you think

 

Many thanks guys i really appreiate it

You need to look into section 13 employment rights act 1996 if no contractual provision allows deductons directy from your wages

 

Only a court can make deductions or the employer if an over payment of wages has happened

Yes..surely this would be covered by insurance, either the company or if you are self employed you would have to show that you are insured before taking up the contract.

Im speaking to the top boss tommorow and im demanding he proves the business has liability insurance may have to involve my union if he becomes an idiot

 

Perhaps you should check what you signed but cannot remember what it was, before you start demanding anything?

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

you should be asking for what evidence they have of the damage being done at the time of the installation. They may well have paid up for good public relations reasons but that should not be at your expense. This may well be a good enough reason as to why the deduction from salary is not within the terms of your contract so worth plugging away at it.
