    • 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.

Tonight I went to get the kids some bits from ASDA,

 

I’d finished work my husband picked me up and I realised I’d left my card at home

 

I walked out with the clothes and the security guard caught me

 

I ran to the car

my husband and kids were there

 

I gave the security guard the items

he took down my husbands registration number

 

I’m so worried

my husband isn’t speaking to me because he can’t understand why I did this, I don’t know why I did this.  

 

Should i I expect the police

 

I’m so worried

I feel so guilty and will never do it again

 

I work in retail and hate shoplifting and tonight I’ve done this.

 

If anyone has any advice please help

Hello and welcome to CAG.

 

I expect people will be along later with advice about what happened today.

 

I would like to start by saying that if you don't know why you shoplifted then it would be a good idea to talk to your GP who won't judge you. It could be that there's something going on with you that made you do what you did.

 

Best, HB

nothing will come of it as the zero powers security guards have no access to anyones personal data

 

ASDA could report this to the police

but in all honesty, they got the stuff back ...so pers id forget it ever happened now.

 

tell you husband to stop being a numpty and wise up and support you rather than making you feel worse about something that will go nowhere.

I hope so I’m just so worried

I feel like crying asking him to take me back to ASDA buying the things and apologising,

 

I wouldn’t mind some of the items were sale stuff I should have left them at customer services and gone and got my bank card.

 

The security guard did say your not coming back in here ever again but I don’t understand why he took the registration of my husbands car I’m so worried

As DX says try not to worry - even IF the police were contacted by Asda they would most likely not follow it up. The most likely reason for the guard taking the numberplate details would be to enter it on some sort of store reporting system. Details of incidents are logged purely for internal use and they might just cross check to make sure that other stores haven't reported the same type of incident with your car being used - it also helps the guarding contractor (stores mainly use outside security companies nowadays) to justify their existence in terms of actually stopping a theft. As an isolated incident however I very much doubt that you will hear any more about this, but (and I know you probably won't) don't be tempted to try this again as it could have ended up being worse than it has

Thanks so much I will never ever do this again, I still haven’t had a call from the police I really don’t know what I was thinking. 1st and last time it’s not worth the guilt my anxiety is so bad now I keep thinking they are going to call round to the house.

so you panicked about not having your payment card and then threw the items into the hands of the security bod when you were challenged.

the store has made no loss so the most likely thing they will do is look at their CCTV and make an internal decision to ban you should you go back there in the near future. they may match the car reg to the CCTV but wont be asking for any further info from the DVLA as they wont be able to prove the keeper and the person doing a runner are in any way one and the same. this give them nowhere else to go with the info they currently have so you dont go back there again for at least 6 months and that way you dont suffer the embarrassment of the store manager telling you that you are barred.

 

if this remains a one-off then I wouildnt worry too much about it and try and get your husband to understand it was just panic. If you start to suffer from panic attacks for other reasons or in similar places them see your doctor, esp if you drive
