    • I don’t see some users posts, but since they’ve been quoted .........   I agree (in parts) with 2 contributors postings.   WHO says “test, test, test”, so more tests ARE key. That is part agreeing with one contributor.   I also agree with cjcregg. One has to understand the limitations of a test : (sensitivity, specificity and its positive and negative predictive values - which involves sensitivity / specificity AND prevalence!).   One also has to understand which test, to apply those limitations. a) RNA NAAT? (Commonly called PCR, though PCR is a tradename, so ‘PCR’ is to ‘NAAT’ like ‘Hoover’ is to ‘vacuum cleaner’) b) Antigen testing? c) Antibody testing? (If so, IgM? IgG? Both??)   Knowing which test(s), their limitations, and thus what the result actually MEANS is more important than a blanket statement of “test everyone!”, (and repeatedly ??! ) .... especially as it allows prioritisation of who gets what test to maximise benefit, until “testing for all” is more than a pipe-dream .....   Would you repeat a positive IgG test? If so, in what circumstances??
    • Just out of interest, how long did it take you to formulate this conclusion? I'm not looking for a particularly accurate answer, just round it up to the nearest nano second.    How is this going to work then?   Where are the medical personnel and laboratory staff required to undertake this massive project going to come from? Now this is just a stab in the dark but I'd imagine they'd be quite busy at the moment.   Even South Korea, who are recognised as having one of the most aggressive testing policies have only managed to test 1% of their population. You clearly have no conception as to the scale of what you're proposing.   Even if it was possible to plan, organise and execute it would take years to achieve, by which time all the data would have been redundant and completely meaningless. I was tested last week and it took 2 days for the result, which by the time I received it was already out of date as I was then and now just as likely to be infected as I was when I took the test.   Think about it.    
    • I'm sure that the entire nation is reassured and lost in gratitude to you for this heart-warming confirmation.   Do keep us updated.
    • I would say that is exactly what "discretionary" means.     Is that the case?  Surely nearly all bonus schemes are discretionary unless explicitly stated otherwise in the employment contract?  Does "fairness" come into it?   I agree with emmzi - there's no advantage to the employer in paying it and I can't see the OP forcing them to do so.
    • not to complicate things, I had a full time job with employer #1 and a part-time zero hour contract with employer #2. Employer #2 offers me a full time contract starting 1st May 2020. I leave employer #1 6th March 2020 I then go back to employer #2 and resume 40 hours a week on a zero hour contract until 18th march 2020 when the place has closed. I have been told the job starting in May will be delayed until June and then we will sign full time contracts.   Taking the advice of Honeybee13, I looked over the internet and it looks like I missed out by a week as the cut off point was the 28th Frbruary

most companies will not provide references of any kind these days - if they do all it should have on it is - he was employed for this role, he started on 01/01/2010 his employment ended 01/01/2015 - he had this many sick days - just the basic stuff - they certainly should not be saying stuff like he was lazy, couldnt do his job etc etc.

 

I think that if he explains the issue he had with his termination date with his old employer to his new employer that they will be anderstanding about it.

If it says so in his contract then the local manager doesnt have any right to unilaterally change that term. Ultimately if he leaves having given notice there is nothing they can do.

Maybe the manager is right as it is either one week notice or one month notice.

 

I haven't heard of a two week' notice.

 

Best he writes to them and point it out to them.

 

Though he is leaving but there is no point in burning bridges when you don't need to.

 

If it is a big company they will always give a good reference as it isn't worth the trouble.

Actually most companies now just give a generic one confirming they worked from xx date to xx date. Some retailers dont even give one at all.


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..
