    • An update:  Letter dated 17th May 2022   Reference:  Parking Charge Notice - xxxx   Dear Sir/Madam   We are writing in relation to the Parking Charge incurred on 4 August 2020 at 15.08 at Asda Clapham car park.     We would like to confirm that this charge has now been cancelled and there is no outstanding payment due.   Yours faithfully   Parkingeye Team   So it worked your letter from Zimbabwe - see below:   TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN   DCBL REFERENCE NO.  INCIDENT DATE:  4th August 2020 PARKING CHARGE NOTICE NO:  VEHICLE REGISTRATION xxxxxxxx   Please note the car with Registration xxxxxxx was scrapped  and taken off the road in August 2020 when I left the country.   My brother rented the flat:  xxxxx, Battersea, London xxxxx for 2020 but has since moved to a new address.  The address you have used in Battersea, is not my address and no family member lives at that address.  It has been tenanted to someone I do not know.  Please only contact me at my Zimbabwe address, where I have been living for the last two years.   It has taken 3 months for me to receive a Final Reminder from DCLB due to the fact they sent the Final Reminder to the wrong address.   I have written to the CEO of ASDA explaining that I forgot to collect my free parking ticket whilst shopping at ASDA and that I am a loyal customer.     I do not intend to pay your charge as you are already charging over the new code of practice issued by parliament, which states you can charge £100 only otherwise any amount over that is considered a “rip off”. You are supposed to observe the law according to your agreement with BPA, furthermore it is likely you have not applied for planning permission with is also defined in the new CoP.   I suggest you drop this unnecessary case.   Please note that I live in Zimbabwe and any letters addressed to Battersea will no doubt be binned.  If you want to continue to pursue this case, then you will have to contact me at my address in Zimbabwe, but I warn you letters do take a rather lengthy time on occasion.   I look forward to hearing from you regarding the above appeal.   Yours sincerely      
    • I have done but it mentions computer typing and I don’t have one or access to one so if Its handwritten do I have to sign it or still just print my name the same 
    • My second son (not the 3rd one we have helped in the past!) was having a stag do and parked at the Saunton Sands hotel for roughly 2 hours to get to the beach.  They went through the hotel but have no proof of any purchase, even though they argued this in their appeal.  The appeal was rejected and then he went to Zimbabwe for a period of time as he has been suffering from severe anxiety.  He needed to come home and be treated.  He arrived back in the UK 10 days ago and received a "Letter Before Claim" from CST Law on 11th May 2022.   The total outstanding is £170.  Can you make any recommendations?   Smart Parking Charge Notice was dated 3 July 2021 Location:  Saunton Sands Hotel, Braunton   The Parking Charge Notice:   "Smart Parking Ltd have the right to seek payment of the parking charge for unauthorised parking of the vehicle on the land on the relevant date as owner of the land, on the basis of a contractual right to occupy or to have possession of the land, or acting as agent of the landowner.   A Parking Charge Notice (PCN) is payable with respect to the vehicle registration mark ...... for the alleged breach of advertised terms and conditions within Saunton Sands Hotel, Braunton on 3/7/21.   The signage, which is clearly displayed at he entrance to and throughout the car park, states that this is private land and the car park is managed by Smart Parking Ltd.   A Parking charge Notice of £100 is now due for payment and must b e paid before the end of the 28 days from with the date of the notice.  If the parking charge notice is paid before 28 Jul 2021the amount of the parking charge notice will be reduced to £60.  If you were not the driver of the vehicle and you wish to provide the driver details, lodge a dispute appeal or query this must be made on line or in writing.  Please follow the instructions overleaf.   Following the landmark Supreme Court ruling of Parking Eye v Beavis, it has now been established that a Parking Charge Notice issued on Private Land is enforceable.  The Court rejected claims that such charges are extravagant, exorbitant or unconscionable and advised that such charges Acta necessary deterrent of breach of contract.  A full copy of the Supreme Court Judgement can be found on line at https://wwwlsupremecourt.uk/cases/docs/uksc-2013-0280-judgement.pdf.  If you feel you have sufficient grounds to appeal this notice you will find full details of the appeals process overleaf.  If you pay the PCN you are therefore accepting full liability for the charge, and are no longer eligible to appeal this notice.

Good morning all.

 

Just after a quick bit of advice.

 

I have been off work for the last few weeks after finding out something horrific that had been happening to my 8 year old son. I informed work what had happened and that obviously I would be off work as needed time to not only help my son through it but, also to try and deal with all the emotional things I was going through.

 

I went to see my GP and obtained sick notes to cover me for the time I was off. I even attempt to come back to work sooner but after a few hours there, I was an emotional mess and broke down in tears so obviously wasn't ready.

 

Anyway, I had my welcome back interview and my manager didn't ask how me or my son were doing just simply kept stating how much pressure my time off had placed on my colleagues and, as I was off on Feb for 2 days with sickness I will now be having a disciplinary meeting.

 

I appreciate they are just following company procedures buy just feel the way it has been handled, knowing what I was going through, was very unsympathetic.

 

Anyway, I have seen something about time offf for dependants this morning and was wondering if this is something I might be to have instead of having it as sick even though I provided sick notes?

 

Many thanks

Any excesive time off whatever the reason will trigger an absence review. The system will rcognise you have taken more than the maximin time off allowed, even with Fit notes

 

That does not mean the employer will activate any warnings or issue any stage warmings for that absence. That will be a management decision on the facts presented at the interview

Just to add to the above, time off for dependants, whilst valid at the outset of an event, would not cover you for an absence of weeks, only in the very short term

 

It is designed to allow time off to deal with the immediate emergency, and to arrange for longer term childcare where that is needed. This would normally be just for a shift, a day, or at a push a couple of days - it would not cover the parent for an extended absence due to the effects of the incident on your own health, and a sick line from your doctor, such as you have, would be the appropriate reason for such an absence.

 

As stated above, however genuine the reason for absence, it does not mean that a formal review or hearing should not take place, nor does it mean that disciplinary action cannot follow if the absence level does not improve during any subsequent measurement period. Some employers are sympathetic and will disregard what they know to be a genuine absence for the purposes of absence measurement, others are not. It seems that yours is the latter, but there is nothing to say that they must be sympathetic or considerate. Hopefully your absence review will not result in any formal warning, but the employer would unfortunately have the law on their side should they choose to take that course of action.

 

The wellbeing of your child and yourself is the overriding factor here though, so hopefully whatever the event and it's aftermath, I hope that things are improving for both of you.

Thank you both for your replies.

 

Having spoken to my area manager and the HR lead today at some length, they have decided that I won't be required to attend a disciplinary meeting now and no further action will be taken. That's at least some less pressure at this time.
