1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    It's a complex field, if she isn't in a union then I would suggest a solicitor who deals in employment law and you may find one who offers a free initial consultation.

    Hi Nath, I'll PM you my number, but remember there is a big difference between the law and your wife's contract - if she has one.

    Also worth finding out if your local university has a law school. They often do pro bono work.

    The best advise I'd give anyone is to always make sure you have legal services added/included to your home insurance at an average cost of about £25 - £30 a year as it can give you cover and access to an employment lawyer.

    I used mine about 6 years ago and after contacting my insurance company and after going through with them what I believed was constructive dismissal I was appointed a barrister who specialised in employment law with £50k of cover to represent me against my previous employer.

    The mere threat of seeing my employer in court with this support, doubled their offer on the amount of redundancy I'd previously been offered :) ...….check it out you may pleasantly be surprised.

    Neiled and Terry give good advice ... My wife is in HR in one of the biggest companies in the UK. If you want advice I can ask her. I'm also a company director and have access to our outsourced HR guys who are also very good.

    Happy to help if I can.
