    • No worries, sounds like a really stressful time.   Ok. So this falls under contract law, not employment law. What does the contract say about payment? If you have met the terms of the contract, you can go to court to get paid.   It also means you’d need to sue your own company if they didn’t pay you minimum wage - that’s a non starter. Your own company is your employer.     if the client paid for the van it seems right that he can keep the van unless you have something in writing that says otherwise.
    • I do apologise for any confusion got myself in a rather a tizzy we as a company took on the job. 70/30 profit share taking below minimum wage  we actually saw an out. Company was taken bankrupt no assests only company van  husband then took over the contract all great. The client at the time paid to get the van back so work could continue to carry out the contract all happy until now when property sold now we recieved phone call saying he’s not happy we’re getting nothing and he’s taking ownership of Van again I aplogise if this is written in the wrong format I m just typing we stand to loose everything I’ve kept the wolves from the door with this guarantee again Thankyou for reading 
    • Sorry for the spam, I missed a bit and it wouldn't let me edit it..    
    • Thanks again Andy. I tried being a bit more shocked and horrified with my point about the screenshot. I added a concluding type point in 13 that is a bit more forceful, but I don't know if the language is a bit too accusatory and not appropriate. I've only changed 11 onwards, the bits I've highlighted, if it's okay?   Side note, I was mistaken about the ID I think, I can't see it now, but they did write that I took it out in store which I've responded to.    
    • Hi everyone I bought two items in mango for £34 total and when i went to return them I realised I lost the ticket. All tags are on and items are not damaged. Yesterday I was told to bring a bank statement which I did. Today I was asked to exchange it for other items IN THAT SAME MOMENT.  I wasn't expecting the money back, but at least credit store to use....not just pick up something in the moment. I have lost the receipt, my fault, but it looks a bit abusive to me to ask me to pick something in the moment. Can anyone advice if this is ok? Many thanks for your help

They may offer to settle if mediation is an option...shows no weakness on your part as the claimant and the courts expect all parties to participate and can have an adverse effect on your costs if you are not willing to be amicable ?

 

With regards to your response to their defence you can submit a response with your DQ.....but I would suggest against this as you only give them further information on which your claim relies upon and information they will then be armed with if the claim proceeds and both parties submit their particularised statements.

 

Dont show all your hand at this stage and save the detail for further into the process.

Hi @Andyorch,

 

 

Thank you for the quick reply.

So to clarify few things:

1) I say yes to Mediation Service - In the covering letter with DQ form somewhere in 2nd line it says they think this is a good case for Small claim court. (Will it go against me if I select NO?)

2) Will send an update Authorisation letter with the DQ form to both court and defendant.

3) Don't send my argument with this and take it to court straight (or do I need to send this once my case is allocated to my local court?)

 

 

Regards

2) Will send an update Authorisation letter with the DQ form to both court and defendant.

3) Don't send my argument with this and take it to court straight (or do I need to send this once my case is allocated to my local court?) You submit a witness statement further in the process if they wish to proceed which particularises your defence .

Thanks again @Andyorch,

 

 

Then it is YES for Mediation Service but I was thinking this will be always NO as advised in @icemen's case.

Well if you state no...as advised you remove the opportunity of settlement out of court and further costs to yourself...which can be reduced if you have shown not to be amicable.

 

I cant recall why Iceman was advised otherwise...dont think it was my advice.?

Hi @Andyorch,

 

 

Thanks for the advise, will take your advise and definitely say YES for Mediation.

 

 

It was @Bankfodder who advised @icemen to reject mediation. I can understand all cases are different and that may be the reason.

Hi Cags....

 

Sorry for the delay in updating this thread... Had really busy few months due to the newly added member in the family (my Daughter) and workload.

 

Now the time to submit my documents in court by 16/05/19 and hearing date is 13/06/19.

 

Can anyone please advise what should be the title of my documents replying for Currys defence and how I should I end. I will upload once I have completed my documents for you all to read and advise any amendments.

 

Kind regards

Vicky R

Good evening fellow caggers,

 

Finally, I have prepared a dummy copy of the witness statement. I know it is a bit long and lots of grammar mistakes. 

Can someone please read and advise what need to be corrected or if this is not good at all.

The judge allocated 2 hours for hearing.

 

Kind regards
