    • Hello All,   A friend of mine started work for a care home around eleven months ago.   From the very start they over paid her and it has just come to light.   I do not know for sure if she was aware of the over-payment, (she is cunning enough to be aware and dizzy enough to not notice!, with apologies to feminist readers!!).   The company has now demanded she repay the over-payment.  I am not clear what the sums are but she was contracted for around 20 hours a week and was paid for thirty so I would estimate 40 hours x minimum wage x 11 months so something like £3500.  (Please don't comment that this was a huge number that she should have noticed, I already know!).   At first they told her she could not leave until she had paid it back, finally an arrangement was made that she will repay at the rate of £50 per month and must settle the balance if she leaves before she has paid it back and they have made her sign a contract to that effect.   I take the view that whether or not she has an obligation to pay it back there should not be any contract that in effect ties her to the place.  She should be free to give notice and work elsewhere, any repayment should be at a rate she can afford and if she has a better job offer she should be able to take it without having to wait to pay back the overpay.   I would be most grateful for any CAG'ers opinions and comments on this matter and what her rights and obligations are. 
    • Just a further update! So far no documentation for SAR request. I have also trawled back through an old BT email account I am still using , found email conversations between myself , HR and union rep. There is mention of my ongoing case with the company, correspondence with HR about coming back to site for follow up interviews and dealings with my rep up to the point I handed in my resignation which was Feb 2014. As far as I can see these conversations prove that I was on suspended leave pending investigation. Coupled with the fact the SAR if it ever appears will not have these email trails as I suspect my works email account was deleted a long time back.  In terms of the mediation I have already noted that I do not have all the relevant information so this will render any mediation useless which should proceed it to court.  For now I will keep these cards close to my chest and provide those documents at a later date. I feel confident that a judge will throw this out on the grounds of their lack of evidence in the first instance. 
    • Glick, is that rhyming slang?   Nice if you could phrase your own opinions an thoughts.
    • Thank you for the clarification, people should be along to advise later.   HB
    • Anyway now I am repeating myself.I will say that, if the Magistrate is merely witnessing the Declaration was made, why in part 23 does it say the court may accept service of such a declaration .   Section 14 of the majistrates act sub 3   And I am also repeating myself when I say the SD will be examined if out of time. I mean it says so on the application for god sake. The fact that such an application is not applied straight to the court should be A clue As for the points you keep raising about misreading the OPs original post, it happens, get over it. It makes me think your comments are more personal than about the issue.   Glick, is that Bluebottle by any chance, well well?    Indecently I never said anyone will be interrogated here, that was you,   An SD is not proof, you said that yourself, as does the old act.   As for making a deal on how to plead, really, so what does the prosecutor tell the DVLA.

VCS PCN - no stopping - spycar CCTV - Liverpool Airport "offence"

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

 

Started a new thread on this as there are quite a few on here already that I have read.

 

Would be greatful for any advice on this.

 

My partner has received a PCN from VCS Ltd saying that she owes them £100 for stopping on red lines. Or only £60 within 14 days of the issue date.

 

She wanted to just pay it and I said no chance. So I'm gonna fight it on her behalf. I have had no contact with VCS and after reading other threads will be ignoring any letters until there is a letter from a solicitor regarding a court summons.

 

Is this the correct procedure at this point?

 

Cheers

hobnail

Hi.

 

VCS are fairly new to Liverpool airport, but we have a couple of other threads about them that are worth a read.

so all that being said is it same as other threads. Eg, ignore all letters until a solicitor gets involved?

Thats ok honeybee if you a mod I can understand that :)

 

So i'll just ignore until I get a Letter Before Action right?

 

These bastards must really coin it in from people who can't be arsed to fight it or just think its "the law"

 

What a sad world we live in when greed and corruption are the norm.

Spot on, Hobnail. :)  Had you realised that the private parking companies [PPCs] are ex-clampers? You might view them in a different light knowing that.

 

If memory serves the Parking Prankster website/blog has information about JLA.

Aye they are scumbags alright.

 

We were late getting to the airport so droped the girlfriend off to check bags in before I went to park the car in prepay carpark.

 

Saw they wanted £3 just to drop off so though I'll just pull over - only took about 60 secs. So they fleece you for £3 or £100 either way they robbing you blind. 😠

If you rode a pedal cycle or an e bike with no numberplates up that road and stopped to read the sign, the spy car would follow and the operator try to get your details to give you a charge for stopping.  I phoned and asked VCS, and they confirmed that is what they would do even to a mobility scooter or a  broken down vehicle.  they would likely ticket any Roadside recovery vehicle that came to assist as well.

So what is a red route and does JLA have the authority to enforce? well, red routes are very specific for both place and purpose and strangely enough not policed by ex clampers on behalf of TfL or other citiers where the scheme is authoried..

 

As already said, JLA has its own byelaws and these trump any contract that VCS may offer and that is all VCS can do is offer for your consideration a PARKING contract. Somehting saying no stopping isnt  an offer to park for you to consider adn either accept or reject. for those reasons VCS dont have a leg to stand on but as they are greedy adn dishonest they wont drop the matter until their bluff is called. For every person who comes here for advice and takes them on another 99 will fall in line and pay up so they keep going after people without lawful reason as it pays them very well.

 

So read the other threads and you will get an idea of what piffle you will get on your doormat before the great minds at VCS send you their lba. This you respond to but no need to waste yout time on anything else. Do not use email to correspond with them under any circumstances

Cheers everyone for the advice.

 

How long before I can expect the Letter Before Action is sent my way - presumably this will be after several threatening letters to our address with  the "penalty" costs rising every time right?

Something like that yes, when you do get a LBA, one of ericsbrothers snotty letters is in order letting them know that you know they have no lawful reason to claim even a can of maggots for a non parking incident.

Hello again,

 

I was wondering how long it would be before I start getting more letters from VCS. Its been over a month now since our first letter.

 

Is it usual for them to take ages to sent further threats of court/increased fines ect.....??

 

Is it wishful thinking that they leave us alone now?

 

Cheers again

hobnail

Did you send an ericsbrother style snotty letter?  they might leave you alone until just before Christmas, then get a tame powerless DCA to start sending letters with some spurious charges added to increase the  "(NON) debt" To them its a psychological game, so they will ramp up their threats at the festive season hoping to frighten someone into compliance.  VCS are not honest brokers, and  have no Locus Standi to demand anything where Bye-laws are in force.

Hi brassnecked

 

No I've ignored them so far. Told to just wait until I get the LBA from them. Just thought it strange I've had no more threats from them since. I was expecting more "fear" thats all.

 

Not that I'm worried tho

Hi good people

 

We finally got a second letter from VCS so I though I would post it here to keep you all up to date and keep the tread alive as I will be needing assistance once I get the Letter Before Action.

 

Cheers again
