    • Thanks DX.  I've ploughed through the pages and dug out what I feel are the relevant ones. Obviously, some of these are duplicates of what I've put up before.  Anyway, I would be hugely grateful if someone can look over and advise. Reading though other posts and on other cases that I've had help with from here, I don't think they have much of a case - given the weakness of much of their "evidence" - but obviously I would be grateful for some expert advice from the helpful souls on here.    Thank you.    B   Witness Oct19_redacted.pdf
    • You came here for advice, soem advice has been given adn you question the validity and source of that advice. We are all lay peopele, ie not giving professional advice but it is based on experience of the world and in some cases working in the field that advice is given on. Now you dont have to take our advice, we wont get the huff if you prefer to look elsewhere or do something else. when I asked what you think they would do with your NI number it is to prod you to think for yourself and question why they would ask for this when there is nothing legal they can do with the information so wouild you be wnating to give it to them knowing that they would want it to break the law if they processed it. Now you can take that up with the company at the top but TBH unless you want to spend money on a lawyer they will not answer the question or fob you off with some ridiculous answer anyway.   so for the moment read a lot about  RLP and similar situations to yours ans make particular note of what happened to the peopel in the end. You will find no threads theat ended by saying " thanks to you I gor sued by RLP and owe them a fortune". It isnt going to happen and the reasons why are explained in many threads. They rely on your feeling of guilt to get anywhere
    • you need to respond to their letter saying that you belive that you ahve been paid correctly ( or underpaid if you are due a small amount of accrued holiday pay etc) and demand that they show a full account of what you received, when and why and how they arrived at this figure. You then reconcile that with your P45 and use the figures to bat off any furhter demands if they still akke one. Come back if they dotn drop the matter and give us the full breakdown on hours worked, hourly rate, gross pay, tax paid  etc
    • @dx100ukI never got a response to my SAR from Octopus.   But I have just received a 'letter before court action' from one of their legal representatives, who have been "instructed to consider legal action against [me] if full payment, a settlement or your proposals to make suitable repayments arrangements are not received in the next 30 days."   I'm reading the threads now. Any advice on how to proceed? 
    • I would say let them do their worst, it will surely backfire on them. Now with restrictive contracts that stop you working fro competitors- these are notoriously vague so often not worth the paper they are written on. also they have to be fair so for example if there are only 2 companies in the UK that make a certain product your employer cant say you arent allowed to work for the other one. If you were for example trained as a hairdersser and you were going to open a salon in the next street to your ex employer then the restriction would apply if worded correctly. Dont panic about this, your new employer will be au fait with the situation and time spent worrying about a nastly letter will in their eyes take you eye off the ball so concentrate on the new job.

Two days ago I received 2 N.I.P's for speeding, both on the same day on the same road, 20mins apart, going in different directions. It was a mobile speed camera unit that I was caught by.


This is my first ever N.I.P in all the 30+yrs I have been driving.

I am a carer for my mum who has severe Dementia.


On the day in question (9th Oct) I was going to my mums to pick her up to take her to a day centre where she goes every Tues.


Unfortunately this particular morning, I was having problems with my car as it wouldn't start. So because of this I was running a few mins late.


Normally I would pick her up at 9.15, so that I can get her to the day centre for 9.30 when it opens. This is her routine and has been for over 12months, even though my mum has this horrible disease, S


she can still tell the time and so any disruption to this can affect her greatley, i.e. she can become easily distressed, anxious and upset if that routine is affected in anyway. So bearing this in mind, I was travelling slightly quicker than I normally would do.


On the way to my mums house, I was caught doing 37mph, the speed limit for the road is 30mph. Also on the way back, I was caught again by the same mobile speed camera unit, this time doing 36mph.


I would like to know, can you be prosecuted for speeding twice on the same road, on the same day, only a matter of mins apart?


I am not in any way trying to 'get away' with the offence, I know I was speeding and I admit I was driving (obviously) but if the circumstances of that day had been different, and my car had started in the morning, then I would not of been speeding.


As ive already said, I was concerned about my mum and that she would be wondering where I was. She has carers that come in to her 4 times a day,


they have said quite a few times, that if they have not been able to get to my mums, for the time planned, she has been stood in the window of her house, watching for them turning up, and when they have, she has been in tears asking where they have been,


so again, Im not using that as an excuse, but on any other day I would not be travelling on this road, or if I had too I would be doing the 30mph speed limit.


any advice on how to deal with this would be greatly appreciated. Also I have been told that I will more than likely be offered a speed awareness course, as the two speeds are inbetween the allowed amount for a speed awareness course.


I was also wondering whether it would be worth writing a letter explaining the situation on that day, and ask that they use discretion when deciding how to deal with it, as one of the offences is only 1mph over the minimum allowed before you get a ticket


Thank you
