When you say loss of business how was this caused please?
Loss of business - the company is a limited company, once the screw up had come to my attention i was on the phone for quite some time trying to find ouit what had happened, i had to put a job the next day back which meant i had to work over the weekend to do that job. the pure admin and to be blunt stress caused by this took at least 3 days to catch up with - I do some subcontract work for a larger company and was called into the customers offices to explain what was going on as they were not impressed that their customer received a letter.... One customer used the words "if they are the people who monitor my alarm and they can make an error like this I dont want them monitoring my alarm 1 a fair comment i feel? Another recipient of the letter was a company MD who has nothing to do with the bills for the alarm as we work for the landlord - he has a relative in the security business and has been spreading chineese whispers as a result of getting the letter... the damages this has caused to my reputation is significant though quite untangable on paper
How much do you say your loss is please?
