    • So there's no tax payable anyway.... nothing to see here!  
    • are you actually going to benefit out of this at all?   I was slightly getting confused here earlier, and forgot you said you are the claimant because you are suing the defendant for the cost of a hire car that you personally haven't had to pay for ?    
    • I received PCN's from TFL and Southwark. 08/06/19 I spoke with Southwark regarding PCN's and thought it was sorted.   Didn't hear anything back until 17/01/20 when my car was taken by Marston EA. TFL & Marston say they sent letters but have no proof.   I emailed TFL (19th June) through their online portal and again, via email on (14th Nov 2019) < the email on 14th has been viewed 17 times but no reply. (so I have proof of contact, they don't) I asked them if they send via recoded delivery/signed for but they do not.   When my car was taken, I received a call from a friend saying it's on the back of a truck, outside his house (which is round the block from mine). I ran round there and the EA was aggressive, shouted at me and refused to show ID/why he had taken my car.   I complained to Marston who denied it but sent me some of the footage. I complained again through resolver.co.uk and Marston lied again. Then I sent ALL my info and evidence etc.   took a few weeks and called me saying sorry and taking full responsibly for their EA's aggressive behaviour etc. TFL are still refusing to comment.   Marston offered me £250 as a goodwill payment but obviously the pain and trauma causes - that doesn't cover it. The police were called when they took my car cause I was so distressed and having a panic attack etc.   I've requested the phone call recording where they accepted guilt and that they had handled everything badly, including lying about the video on Resovler. I feel like Marston know they've done wrong, but TFL still aren't in the know. (to my knowledge)   Also, I requested info from TFL via whatdotheyknow.com and TFL did a data protection breach by uploading my full details including address etc. to a public forum (and I didn't even ask anything specific about my case) so I feel like they did this out of spite/anger.   the www.whatdotheyknow.com team reprimanded them for this and advised me to complain. I also paid £800+ to retrieve my vehicle and I have completed the OOT which was denied. I tried to take it to court but when I tried to do the 'low income' thing but they wanted bank statements which I couldn't get... then corona happened.   I've downloaded/uploaded the ZIP file from Resolver convos.   Regarding the footage: my initial message to them, I made myself seem unaware and 'stupid'   they wrote a generic reply telling me that 'the footage is fine and the EA did nothing wrong' they can't uphold my complaint,   then once they sent that; I sent them the CIVEA rulebook and timestamps in the video to show that they were in the wrong and had further lied in their official response (which must be illegal)   when they received the in-depth response, I think they got scared, went away for a couple weeks   tried to get the nice sounding woman to call me up, say sorry and be really nice then offer me a measly £250.   She also tried to rush me into agreeing.   
    • No it was about under by a couple grand.    Cheers

I went to my local job centre a few days ago and they are going to put me on the work and health programme.  However, after looking on google it is for people that have been out of work for 24 months.  I last worked in August 2017 so do I have to take part in this now or not.

 

I have to visit the job centre tomorrow about this programme.

 

Has anyone been on this before ?

 

Thanks

As far as I understand this course, it is for people who have been out of work for a period and who have suffered from a health condition, which might cause them difficulty in obtaining work.  

 

I think when the course started it was originally for those who have been out of work for 24 months or more, but I seem to remember reading that a referral could be made after 12 months.

 

The course provider has been employed by DWP to help people find work. So yes there will be some gentle pressure to find suitable work. They work with different employers in your area, arrange job trials,  help you with applications, CV writing,  advise you of rights if you have disability, help you with any issues you might have after starting work.

 

If you don't want to do this course, you will have to show the Work Coach evidence of the steps you are taking to find work. Or if you are not ready healthwise, what help you are receiving to get you ready to start work again. The Work Coach will want to see that what you doing in terms of applications has a reasonable chance of success. 


We could do with some help from you.

Thanks for the reply, I don't have any health issues that will stop me from getting a job.

Ok this Government website should help you.

 

https://www.gov.uk/work-health-programme

 

Says voluntary unless out of work for 24 months or more.

 

It might be that a referral takes awhile to go through and they are wanting to push you more to find work. I.e. If you don't want to go on a course, it might spur you on to making more job applications. Your claimant commitment could be reviewed to increase what you are required to do.
