    • Thankyou Dx100   The car park in question is FREE. Nobody has to pay any parking fees. I DID NOT pay any parking fees.   I hope that clarifies that matter.        
    • it appears to me looking on googleearth each park park has its own ANPR system.(their poc states Blue 3) it would be unthinkable that you would have left the car there and walked everywhere. you must have as you say, which is good evidence, that you left the wife there and came back and also drove around to differing shops too in differing carparks thru differing ANPR cameras.   this is where your bank statement for the days transactions can help you, to show that day you/mrs paid several shops by debit card?   i've not got time to read yours WS yet today..but you are a LiP so a day or 2 later wont hurt. beack to my question, you answer in ambiguous...do you have to pay there to park at all and did you pay? or is the whole area free until you hit a time limit?   
    • Hello Dx100   Its OK lol for you not seeing that point, but can we use the fact that they have filed irrelevant evidence to our advantage?   Its over 1.5 yeas ago but from my recollection , as the site is vast, ( I even visited it yesterday !!!!), in order to visit some shops, like Homesense, which is a fair distance  from the blue car park park,  rather than keeping the car in one spot and walking all the way to the distant shops, its far easier to drive and re-park at a new site, which as I recollect is what I did, but cant give exact times. I must have returned at some point to the Blue car park to pick up my partner as she does like to spend long hours  in  shops, . To be 100% truthful, I cant remember the exact time of  the initial exit and re-entries  into the blue car park, so I feel we may have better grounds homing in on the numerous signages they have included some which dont t even have times restrictions for customers, such as the signages on ages 14 and 17, where the only restriction on the later is 2 hours maximum stay for STAFF only   As Dave eluded to in post #26, I feel the signages, double recovery and locus standi are the points that perhaps we should home on, because I would be a bit worried about the double dipping being the main one as i truthfully cant remember my exact activities and journeys within the shipping complex car prks on that day 100%.   I am getting nervous as my WS is a bit long winded and very clearly that of a lay man , with not many 'test cases' being brought to the judges attention, purely because I only received the claimants WS on FRIDAY 15th Jan 2021 by email at 1.45 pm .   With a bit more time, I would be more relaxed nd ben able to read through many other cases much more thoroughyl but am a bit worried         Yes, there is no monetary fees involved at  merry Hill so correct never paid them  a penny 
    • but what did you complain about and what evidence do you have in B/W that they did terminate in 2008? any?

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Only one real option and that is to make a formal written complaint if you cannot get a straight answer face to face - is this a sole trader or a company?


The failure to pay wages is a breach of contract and also a breach of the Employment Rights Act, actionable through a Court or an Employment Tribunal. The employer would be liable not only for the unpaid wages but also damages for any out of pocket expenses incurred such as bank charges etc.


Problem is that legal action takes time, so even if you were to write a Letter Before Claim or actually register the claim with an ET, the chances are that your employer would have paid up by that point anyway, so probably best to put your complaint in writing and ask for a formal meeting to discuss the situation. You could then seek clarification over what has happened and gain assurances that it won't happen again - perhaps pointing out that if you were to take action to recover the money it would cost the employer a significant amount over and above what is owed.

Any advice given is done so on the assumption that recipients will also take professional advice where appropriate.

First question is ...did you submit a P45 or P46 equvilant ? It may not be the employers fault at all ! You may..... rightly or wrongly owe money for income tax ?
