    • if you wish to put up everything like    your defence claimants WS defendants WS   then im sure those here now and future victims will find it of value   if you read upload carefully you'll see its best to upload each as a separate multipage PDF but ofcourse you'll have to redact each page as a jpg picture 1st before merging each to the relevant multipage pdf .   dx  
    • Thanks I’m happy to put something back ! I didn’t have the courage of my convictions to counter claim even though I was really quite proud of the thoroughness of my court bundle ! i really wanted the opportunity to get into the detail with the judge and felt quite cheated when it ended, but of course I realised that they had just moved on to their next victim  will watch this space 👍  
    • I have created your own topic for this as its import to have it own one but placed a link on the thread you posted on.   you should never counterclaim that exposes you to further cost and rarely succeeds esp if they disc' the claim always best to state in a sep letter you will be seeking costs esp loss of days wages at £90 which most judges allow.   as for an sar, its p'haps always better to issue a cpr 31:14 too or in replacement of, an sar.   well done on your important win
    • My wife has directed me to post on this thread as I have just successfully won against these charlatans   My hearing date was all set at my local court for 31st October 2019 all defence papers were filed and served and frankly I was really looking forward to it! This morning I received a letter from BW legal stating in a one line response that I was to take this letter as a notice of discontinuance whereby the claimant KBT (armtrac) discontinues all of the claim. I am beyond disappointed that I didn’t get my chance to see these idiots across a desk! And that’s it I don’t appear to be able to take this further? I now realise I should of had the courage of my convictions and faith in the advice of others to issue a counterclaim! What I have now in my possession is a file of information which would be Gold-dust to the next person in my position! I feel like I would be able to get some sort of closure if I could pass some of this wisdom on but there are many posters here already and every case is different in its own way The key points in my defence were as follows and useful to anyone ‘caught’ at Sandy Acres. Keep the original parking ticket you purchased and send a copy to KBT with a covering letter ASAP do not identify the driver at any stage of the process!!!!  The blue sign uses the word penalty which is contrary to the IPC codes of practice  The red and white sign has a café open sign in front of it  which obscures it from the drivers view both available to download via Google maps Check the date you receive NTK mine was 71 days Do an SAR and you will get back the pictures of the alleged offence in my case they were of such poor quality you could not tell which way up the ticket was in the photo and in no image they held was there a picture showing the ticket and the vehicle numberplate. They offered no other evidence. Pretty soon you will see the money is being sought escalate until they no longer match the figure on the NTK even if it is sent within 56 days When you see a breakdown of costs for the money being sought it will ultimately include legal costs, typically £60 that the solicitor knows cannot be recovered in Small Claims Court. Personally I am now considering reporting BW legal to the law society or solicitors ombudsman for being party to a process which is fundamentally dishonest, an abuse of process, and a complete waste of court resources?   i am happy to help anyone who needs assistance but rest assured that their case against you relies on you caving in and paying, they have no plan B but will try and make you doubt your ability to defend yourself.   Dont worry about small claims Court, it isn’t crown court, just an office with 3 desks and certainly less stressful than a job interview or meeting with the bank and less at stake.   I got to one week from my court date and they gave up!

So quick question for anybody in the know

 

I am about to start a new job monthly paid - However I am concerned...

The company do Payroll on the 20th of the month.

 

With this date up and coming in less than 2 weeks - Would the company do payroll based upon 1st - 31st of the month where applicable and pay it on the 20th during that period (Like where some companies pay you on the 26th / 27th till the 31st for example?)

 

Or would I only get paid a week if I started next Monday? Slightly worried?

normally when a companies payroll is run before the end of the month, as mine is, it is for the whole month

 

ie you get paid for the 1-31 even though the payroll is run on the 20th

I dont want to lose this opportunity but If I cant afford to go in... Well then... Thats a problem...

Would they consider an advance on your salary to enable you to get to work, FKO?

That's pretty unreasonable - did they not offer anything ? I always pay at least 2 weeks by special transfer if someone misses payroll.

In the end - They werent prepared to do anything... Which i understand completely.

The agency tried to step up and put me on their payroll for 2 months but it can go wrong in so many ways... So...

Ive turned down the company...

 

 

This can be a problem with monthly payrolls where the cut-off date may be a couple of weeks before month end. If you miss the cut-off you may not get paid that month and have to wait 'til the following month.

 

 

Having said that, I worked in the NHS with sufficiently flexible and sophisticated payroll systems to cater for these situations - late payments for new starters could be actioned quite easily. I presume this company doesn't have that flexible a system?

 

 

Is it worth turning the job down because they won't pay you 'til next month? You may have the same issue with future jobs.

 

 

But I'm not sure I'd want to work for an employer who couldn't sort this out for me. icon9.png

And neither would I - I think behind the scenes - The company werent told by the agency about my concerns.

This is a problem. But its all good. I had a lower paid offer come through today which is more local to me and plus I have also been interviewing in London all day today.

The Lower paid offer is still in the 20s... And I will get paid at the end of November... So a result. :) - Ive accepted it.
