Dear Gordon,
Since being made unemployed through redundancy over a year ago I have found it nigh on impossible to gain work, despite a UK University Honours Degree, 2 HNC qualifications and a plethora (20 years) of Management in a variety of practical fields. I have been told on numerous occasions that I am over qualified and under experienced. I cannot even get a job at McDonalds because they believe that it would be a waste of their time and money to employ and then train me.

I did manage to gain some work last month, however it was only of a temporary nature, despite being told otherwise by the agency that recruited me (the telling of such porkies should be a crime (Misrepresentation?)). This had such a negative impact upon my benefit status that all benefits have been stopped and the small amount of minimum wages I did earn for 4 days with no overtime, has failed abjectly to fill the cavernous hole that represents my current financial status. As if this wasn't enough, 2 direct debits bounced, because the money was due to be taken from benefits that didn't appear and the bank wants an extra £60 at the end of the month.

I cannot afford to use a telephone and if it wasn't for the free access to wi-fi provided at my local library I would have no way of contacting you, as I now have no credit, no cash - but I am fortunate to have friends that love me and a supermarket that doesn't understand the law in relation to disposal of out of date foodstuffs - I have a considerably richer diet now that I am a hunter gatherer, but it is time consuming and no doubt I shall fall quite ill at some point.

I have lost my job, my purpose, my self respect, my sanity, my relationship, my home, my ability to live as a contributing member of society and am no doubt becoming increasingly de-skilled as each day passes...

What I am asking is, Mr Brown, if you are a public servant then why is it me who's being fucked so hard in the arse..? At least I can console myself knowing I get a free fuck every day, although unfortunately not quite the way I prefer it!

I await your reply, sitting upon a velvet cushion.

It sounds like it's your ass on the line whenever Brown cocks up.

Browns cock up, your ass.

I must just apologise
to my fellow b3tans, I'm not usually quite so polite in these matters - normal service will be resumed soon :0)

Misrepresentation Act 1967
2. (2) Where a person has entered into a contract after a misrepresentation has been made to him otherwise than fraudulently, and he would be entitled, by reason of the misrepresentation, to rescind the contract, then, if it is claimed, in any proceedings arising out of the contract, that the contract ought to be or has been rescinded, the court or arbitrator may declare the contract subsisting and award damages in lieu of rescission, if of opinion that it would be equitable to do so, having regard to the nature of the misrepresentation and the loss that would be caused by it if the contract were upheld, as well as to the loss that rescission would cause to the other party.
(3) Damages may be awarded against a person under subsection (2) of this section whether or not he is liable to damages under subsection (1) thereof, but where he is so liable any award under the said subsection (2) shall be taken into account in assessing his liability under the said subsection (1).

So, when an employment agency lies to you to get you on the hook and you end up out of pocket from not getting the work they promised you (get it in writing)you CAN take them to court and fuck THEM in the arse

Job Agencies, eh
5 years ago I worked for a Job Agency, after having been subcontracted to them from my original employer.

I was told, on being taken on by said Agency that Statuatory Sick pay would on be paid in the event that a period of illness crossed 2 Wednesdays. I.e. if I was to go sick on Monday, I would only be eligable for Statuatory Sick Pay after 11 days off.

I became ill with Acute Pancreatitis. I was off work for about 3 weeks, and was told at each time I enquired that the required absence period had increased at each enquiry.

Stinking Rotten Bastards, they were...

I'll never be without Private Healthcare again....

20 years of management?
How is that underexperienced?
