Just looking for advice please

 

 

1991, I lost an ET claim, at that time, I didn't have a specialist employment solicitor.

 

 

27 years on, times have changed and due to circumstances beyond my control, it's unfortunate I have an ET claim pending.

 

 

My question is, can the ET claim from 1991, be referred to during the current tribunal hearing?

Hello and welcome to CAG.

 

 

1991 seems an awfully long time ago to be referring to something, but other people know more about ETs than I do. Is it the same employer?

 

 

I think we need more detail before we can advise.

 

 

Best, HB

why do you think it may be referred to?

 

 

by you or them?


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

Thanks for the replies

 

Different employer

 

Concerned it maybe referred to by them as some kind of defence, i.e. not the 1st time I've issued an ET claim

 

1991 was very poor legal representation

Two Tribunal cases in 27 years shouldn't qualify you as a vexatious litigant

 

Was Cost awarded against you in the first case? That would have some influence (I would say little)

 

The usual position of the Tribunal is that each case must stand or fall on its own merit (see para 28 of Qdos Consulting Ltd & Ors v Swanson UKEAT/0495/11/RN)

 

What you need to concentrate on is the strength of this new claim I would forget about a case more than 20years ago

That feels a little paranoid, and I am not sure how they would even know.

Costs were not awarded against me in the 1st claim.

 

 

I guess I am a little paranoid, that said, based on the advice from my legal team (employment law qualified) I have a very strong claim, based on my evidence ACAS ECS was declined by me, therefore, it's my opinion with supporting evidence, given the way I've been treated by my employer resulting and following an ET claim, the respondents are doing whatever they can in an attempt to destroy my character.

 

 

Thanks to you all for your input

A previous claim does not matter, 2 in 30 years is hardly a vexatious litigant and a respondent raising that would be seen as quite desperate.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.
