    • you can't just reject the car after more than 30 days of it being in your possession. you can put in a complaint under your consumer rights act 2015 citing the <6mts rule whereby they have one chance to repair the vehicle and should that again fail for the same reason(s) you can then reject it. dx  
    • they do hold particulars of claim and MUST for 6yrs. they might not have a copy of the claimform to send you but can copy and paste the POC from their screen to an email pdf or read it out to you. thats why we say record your calls sadly paperwork wriggles this old wont help you get it set aside. i very much doubt. and it will cost £275  probably cheaper to contact VCS and pay it and get it marked as settled.  it'll still show on your credit file but at least as settled. dx    
    • you can goto your local CC and get it signed for free. dx  
    • the courts have told me they haven't got the particulars of claim details. What they have produced is the judgement claim with the wrong address on it.  Would I be right to assume that if I can send proof of my actual address at the time with this form, that would suffice to dispute the judgement. I was thinking of including information re the previous case I won in 2017 for the same alleged offence. Unfortunately because it was so long ago the courts apparently dont keep the records but I've got a photo of the court judgement and a letter from my letting agent stating I had my own space. Would you recommend adding this to my dispute. I want to ask the judge to order VCS to pay my expenses. Figured this might help.

    • 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.

HI,

 

 

I got dismissed recently and I was wondering if I have to go through the company's appeal procedure or can I go straight to industrial tribunal? The basis of my appeal/tribunal is that I have been treated completely differently to other employees in the same situation and that management have been highly inconsistent.

I complained about a manager and since then management have done their hardest to get me sacked.

Another employee with exactly the same complaint against them and a proven history of defrauding the company (something I haven't done) hasn't even had any warnings.

I don't really want to appeal as I wouldn't work for this company again if they paid me double.

If I won an appeal could I then walk on grounds of constructive dismissal and go to tribunal?

You don't HAVE to appeal as the statutory dispute resolution procedures were repealed some time ago. However, if you don't appeal, you have effectively contributed towards the situation as you haven't given your employer the opportunity to put things right with an impartial second hearing. And if you were successful in a claim in the future, you could expect a 25% reduction to any compensation awarded for your failure to follow the ACAS Code of Practice.

 

It would still be an unfair (rather than constructive) dismissal claim, as you've been dismissed, rather than having resigned.

You should follow appeal processes. But, you need to be mindful of the strict 3 month time limit which applies to unfair dismissal claims. You need to make sure you have filed your early conciliation form with ACAS well before the 3 month deadline from the date of your dismissal expires, regardless of where things are at with internal appeals. There is guidance here: https://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/t420-eng.pdf and on the ACAS website.

You do not have to appeal but it is wiser to go through all processes that the employer has. Your dismissal/disciplinary outcome letter should tell you how to appeal. If you are getting close to the three month deadline, start the early conciliation process with ACAS as it will give you some extra time. You will need to go through ACAS and EC to start a tribunal anyway.

 

If you don't appeal, it could go against you at tribunal and any compensation reduced via the Polkey reduction. The employer could argue they might have upheld your appeal and given you your job back had you appealed and you have therefore contributed to your dismissal.
