    • 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.

Hi All,

just wanted your opinions on this please.

 

A local takeaway owner applied to the Local Authority for a commercial waste bin.

Eventually he got one but it took a month to get it.

 

In the meantime,

two other shops allowed him to put his rubbish in their commercial bins until his was delivered.

 

Soon after getting his bin,

he was contacted by the Local Authority in which they accused him of fly-tipping as one black bag of his rubbish had been found on a local nature reserve with details of his shop inside.

 

He says that he cannot understand how only one bag was put there as when he used the other shops bins

he always put 10 to 15 bags in the bins and the other shops are very close to him whereas the nature reserve is about 5 miles away?

 

I would like to know if he is legally entitled to use the other shops bins thereby quelling any fears of prosecution for fly-tipping?

 

The other two shop owners are quite happy to say they allowed him to use their bins Until he got his own but only if there is no threat of prosecution to them.

Any ideas?

Thanks all.

Put it in whatever bins he likes. But if his stuff is found somewhere it shouldnt be, then he will be to blame for it.

Local councils seem to take the approach that if they find your rubbish - commercial or householder - somewhere it shouldn't be they don't have to prove you put it there and (so they claim) you can be convicted of illegal waste disposal unless you can prove you didn't put it there. I don't know whether there's actually a law that says the onus is on you to prove you didn't dump it, but that's what my council claims.

 

One week all the black bin bags (householder rubbish) in my street we'd put out for collection the next morning were stolen overnight! Someone saw a couple of guys drive down the street and throw them all in the back of a truck at 4.00am. Presumably they were going to go through them for ID theft or whatever.

 

In case they turned up dumped somewhere I reported it as a theft online to Met police. ("Value of property stolen £0.00") I got a phone call shortly after from local nick asking what I thought I was doing! I explained about Council prosecuting etc, then he understood why I wanted an official record somewhere that the rubbish had been stolen and I hadn't dumped it. But he was concerned about his crime statistics! We found a compromise. He didn't log it as a crime report but he was able to log it as an incident and give me an official Met Police reference number :-D Problem solved.

One bag dumped with your details within it so they have that as evidence.

 

What I would be asking is what route did the rubbish vehicle that on collection of the commercial bins take after collection from XYZ. (reason I say this is was that one bag at the nature reserve by any chance on the route they took after collection of those commercial bins on XX/XX/XXXX)

Hi guys, thanks for the replies. From what I’ve read myself it looks like he will be ok saying he put it in the other shops bins. I have however told him not to enter into any conversation with them as I’ve read a few stories of how they try to lead you into a conversation that will give them a passage to prosecute. Anyway, let’s see what happens and I’ll get back with the outcome.

Even if he keeps quiet, theyll still chase. ANd if he still keeps quiet, his stuff was there, so theyll just assume hes guilty.
