    • I would have thought it easier in small claims.  Your wife very kindly and considerately wrote to her employer offering more notice than she was obliged to do.  No doubt she had the best interests of her employer in mind and wanted to give them adequate time to plan ahead and find a replacement.  To her amazement, her employer took advantage of her kindness and unreasonably treated her notice as taking immediate effect, blah, blah blah.   Personally, I think an argument like that is quite likely to succeed in small claims where they won't be accustomed to arguing the niceties of employment contracts.  It's obvious your wife is being taken advantage of.   Again, I think you are more likely to get an even-handed and fair hearing in small claims than at an ET.   However, I'm not a lawyer and I'm definitely not an employment lawyer.  See what others advise and whether anybody else thinks it would be easier and more likely to be successful simply to sue.  (Oh - and remember if you want to sue them for the money you've got six years to do so, whereas the time limits for ETs are ridiculously tight.  Can't remember off the top of my head but is it something stupid like 60 or 90 days?  Ridiculous).   Of course there may then be issues about getting future references from them.  But if you go down the ET route that'll likely be a problem anyway.    
    • say i was going to write to all these about the debts and try get deal to reduce monthly payments and stop all interest do I write to them first or do I stop payments then write to them ?   Same if I was going for a DRO do I just sort out and apply for that first or stop all payments then apply for it .   Also I see for a DRO it says ive got to go through  an authorised debt adviser so who do i go to about this and at moment we still on lockdown here in wales and not many places open .   Last off ive asked regarding pro rata forms and still cant find any 
    • Yes but I think in a small claims court it will be far harder to prove. I have plenty of evidence to discredit the Director but again it could still not be enough.   She will be a month with no money and I think it’s far more risky than a tribunal where this action alone could result in the desired outcome.   I have said to her to request a face to face meeting to enable both parties to conclude, ideally resolve and at that point we can decide what action we wish to take.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Hi All,

 

This is my first posting on this site and would be grateful for any advice recieved.

 

My Partner and I have a joint account with the Nat West. On 21/12/06 we recieved the following letter:

 

I have been trying to contact you but have been unsuccessful. Perhaps you would be kind enough to give me a call and ask to speak to the undersigned. There is no reason for concern, but it would be beneficial if you could contact me.:)

 

As I was working away, my partner called into the bank and asked to speak to the undersigned. He was then given information on MY PERSONAL ACCOUNT. Up until this point, he had no knowledge of the status of MY account. This conversation was held in a public forum.:mad:

 

What should I do next? Go to the bank complain to the manager or make my complaint in writing?:confused:

 

Will this be as beneficial as the undersigned has led me to believe!

Welcome to the site.

This scenario has grave implications under the data protection act.

How far you want to pursue this depends naturally on the extent to which it has worried/affected you.

I would start with a complaint in writing to the manager demanding an explanation.

I actually agree totally with Martin on this one as it is totally unacceptable.

I realize this message might be old new (still new to this forum) but I work for Nationwide and we're constantly reminded to verify customer's before releasing any information. This can cause problems especially with children's accounts (once they reach a certain age) but I can see why we need to take these steps what with all the fraudsters out there.

 

I would definately complain to the branch manager and take it higher if you have to. I don't know what that particular organisations limit is for discretionary payments, (I wouldn't mention it) however I would point out pretty much what people have said here that chain of events is a breach of the data protection act.

 

Out of interest was there any harm done? Not that that takes away from the principle (ie any nosey begger could've heard the info!!!)


The views I express here are mere speculation based on my experience. I am not qualified nor insured to give legal advice and any action you take will be at your own risk.

Regardless of any damage done,the fact remains that data protection principles have been breached,and very basic ones at that.

There is no question that it is a serious matter,and would warrant a complaint to the information comms.

They would naturally want to know if you had reported it to the branch and what action they had taken and then would more than likely begin an investigation on your behalf.

Not too long ago a claimant here had a similar problem with their bank but I cannot recall who it was.

In the end they offered 250.00 compensation.

They are likely to ask you how you expect them to resolve this to your satisfaction,and if compensation is your idea of that then all you have to do is tell them you have a case under the data protection act and mention the Information comms.

You could of course take them to court over it,but the level of any compensation would rely expressly on you being able to show that it had caused you loss/stress/etc conclusively.

In my opinion I would try and deal with this between you and the bank.

I am certain that they will recognise the seriousness of this and that someone will already be getting their **** kicked over it !!
