    • I received a Claim Form issued on 19 Jul 2021. The claimant is ParkingEye Limited.    The alleged offence took place on 22/10/2019. The particulars of claim read as follows:   "Claim for monies outstanding from the Defendant in relation to a Parking Charge (reference xxxxxx/xxxxxx) issued on 25/10/2019. The signage clearly displayed throughput University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff - Staff 4, Heath Park, Cardiff, CF14 4XW states that this is private land, managed by ParkingEye Ltd, and that it is subject to terms and consitions, including auhotisation being required for parking, by which those who park agree to be bound (the contract). ParkingEye's ANPR system captured vehicle xxxxx entering and leaving the site on 22/10/2019, and parking without authorisation. Pursuant to Sch 4 of the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012, notice has been given to the registered keeper, making them liable for the Parking Charge payable upon breach."   As they claim the PCN was issued in October 2019, I do not recall receiving anything in the post. I did receive a Final notice of Debt Recovery from dcbl, demanding £140. However, it had no reference on the letter so I just ignored it. I logged on to ParkingEye's portal to access photographic evidence and did not manage to find the complete PCN, however, there were just two pictures of the car with a time stamp (please see the attached files). I have copied the parking charge details from ParkingEye's website:   Parking charge details Parking Charge Reference: xxxxxx Vehicle Registration Number: xxxxxx Contravention date/time: 22/10/2019 19:41:52 Contravention location: University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff - Staff 4 Location address: Heath Park, Cardiff, CF14 4XW Stay duration: 0 hours 30 minutes Allowed duration: 0 hours 10 minutes Status: Open Outstanding balance: £155.00 (Please allow 24 hours after payment for it to be reflected on the balance)   I do not recall parking there, however I may have entered the car on multiple occasions on the day to turn the car around.   I visited the car park yesterday to take some pictures (please see the second attached file)   I have completed the AOS on moneyclaim.gov.uk   I am looking to file my defence based on the following points: The photographic evidence supplied by the claimant does not prove the car parked in the above mentioned car park. It just shows the front and the back of the car with two different time stamps. The notice which states that it is a staff car park is located right at the end of the car park, which is not noticeable as you approach the car park and the board seems fairly new to me, the claimant has not provided any proof to suggest that it was there when the alleged alleged offence took place? As they have allowed a 10 minute grace period, a £70 charge for 20 minutes is unreasonable.   Any advice would be much appreciated!! Thanks a lot.

    • Just need a bit of clarification on this. I run my own online business so I think I've got it right, but just good to have some clarification. I bought some items via ibidder auction site. Typically trade and liquidated items for sale there.  The items were men's fragrances and as I gather, auctioneers skip out of a load of the legal consumer right act jargon (from what I recall). Anyway. Several of these fragrances arrived smashed to bits. I logged it with the auction house with all photo's and evidence, and the staff responding even agreed with me that it was clearly damaged in transit.  Anyway, rather than refund me right away or ask me to return said damaged items to get a refund (as should happen right? After all, they pay insurance for their own benefit, to protect themselves as the sender), they put a claim in without refunding me. It's like they have been waiting for compensation to pay me, and if that didn't happen, it's no money for me.  To stop this getting long, the courier refused the claim because the items they sent were prohibited. Terms state anything made partly of wholly of glass won't be compensated and even so, fragrance rules is no more than 4 per parcel (they sent me around 10). Of course that's not my fault, they are responsible for shipment of goods and if they choose to cut corners, then regardless of it being trade lots, that's on them, not me. They've breached compensation terms of the courier and yet because of them not getting compensation, they wont give me my money back, even though they agreed from the evidence that items were clearly damaged in transit.  My thoughts on this (please tell me if I'm wrong): First port of call as they aren't forthcoming via emails is to put the pressure on them. Truthful bad reviews on sites like trustpilot will surely make them want to do the right thing? (That step is already done, by all means I'm happy to hear that I was wrong or it was stupid).   If that fails then it's down to an LBA, not just for the amount lost out on but also for loss of value of other items in the package (glass, liquid damage to those items reducing the value) and reasonable hours lost where instead of putting into my own business, I've been dealing with them.    The sum is low, some £50 or so. Yet it's the principal. I have to deal with customers day in, day out and if I cut corners by not fully insuring shipments, then it's me who takes the brunt and has to refund the customer anyway, so why should another businesses risk mean I've lost out? Thanks

New job offer whilst on furlough


Recommended Posts

I don't know if anyone can assist me.  I am currently on furlough and informed my employer that I would return on 21st June 2021.  However, I have been offered a new job which I will be accepting and want to know how the furlough scheme would work with me resigning and also having 21 days annual leave left.  I have to give 4 weeks notice and wonder if I would take 1 week as furlough and 3 weeks as annual leave, is this correct?

How many days a week are you contracted to work? How do they calculate leave?

 

21 days annual leave is 3 weeks if your annual leave is done in weeks or you are contracted for 7 days a week.

 

It is over 4 weeks if your annual leave is calculated in days and you are contracted for 5 days a week…

Thank you for responding.   

 

I am contracted to work 37.5 days a week, 5 days Monday - Friday.  For some reason my annual leave is calculated in hours instead of days.  My initial entitlement is 25 days per year, which is 187.50 (for a 7.5 hour day). So the amount I have left is 157.50.

Which is 21 days, calculated by days of 7.5 hours / day,

 

Which is 4 weeks and 1 day of annual leave, calculated by hours / (days of  7.5 hours) / (weeks of 37.5 hours / week [and of 5 days / week])
 

I’d suggest giving them 4 weeks notice on Friday 21st May, noting that you are currently on furlough but are owed 157 1/2 hours annual leave.

 

Your post notes “My initial entitlement is 25 days per year, which is 187.5” (hours) “for a 7.5 hour day”.

 

This is less than the mandated minimum of 5.6 weeks (28 days) : is there an adjustment for Bank holidays (& is this the reason you mentioned “initial entitlement”)?

you can't be furloughed while on notice. A change in the scheme means employer's can't reclaim notice pay. Also your notice pay should be at 100% of wages.

Never assume anyone on the internet is who they say they are. Only rely on advice from insured professionals you have paid for!

I was planning to give 4 weeks notice and have 1 week furlough and take the rest of my annual leave at 100% pay.

Well, if your employer knows furlough rules, they can't do that and legally claim the week under CJRS.
