    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

My wife has been working for 3 1/2 years in well known large retail shop doing 5am to 11:30am, she has 20 hours contract processing delivery of clothing each shift. Today the delivery staff have been informed by the store manager they are cancelling the delivery work and day staff will be doing the work, they have been told there are few jobs on the shop floor and the manager will allocate the jobs based on full availability only.

 

My questions

1, Can her employer terminate her employment without notice,

2, The employer is not giving any consultation period

3,  Can the employer offer jobs based on staff hours availability ( They have stated staff must be able to work 7am to 8pm over 7 days ) 

 

They have stated they are making the decision who has a job by the end of December. And staff who are not allocated a job with leaving.

1. no, but it doesn't sounds like that is what is happening.

2. depends how many staff are affected whether that's needed. Union?

3. it's a potentially legal criteria, yes

She went in today and told the following 

 

12 staff are moving and leaving 

 

No union 

 

No consultation as the stone manager has already confirmed who is staying. 

 

No selection process 

 

She's been told as customer support associate working in stores, they must move to sales on shop floor or leave on Christmas eve.

 

Just complete joke of company

up to 19 redundancies - no rules on how they must consult

https://www.gov.uk/redundancy-your-rights/consultation

 

I assume they are paying her notice in lieu of her working it? Or are they saying she is refusing suitable alternative employment (potentially true if hours/wages are similar) and has therefore effectively resigned?
