Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. Could you explain the situation a little more?
I am contacting you on behalf of my son who is not able to communicate via the email system.
Its your responsibility to keep it continuously insured. If its not insured and not SORNed then you are liable.If it is insured but you are not a driver upon the insurance then thats fine as long as you don't drive.
Okay. So can you explain a little more?
I do apologise about the earlier information. It was destined for another post!
He has worked for a company called Key Lintels at Swadlincote in Derbyshire, he has worked with them for 11 years as a ,machine operator, and for aprrox the last 2 years as a forklift truck operator, He received a written warning around 3 years ago but seems to have kept his nose clean of late. He has been suspended for the last week since this accident happened, without pay and has today been given his notice. I am not sure if it was verbal or letter. He is absolutely devastated, his age is 45. Not particularly bright person but is a very genuine fellow
His time keeping has been outstanding with this company.
OK, thank you, XXXXX XXXXX this with me - I will look into this for you, get my response ready and get back to you on here. No need to wait around and you will get an email when I have responded, thank you
And just before I finish, what was the alleged incident which they used to sack him for?
He knocked something over when the load on the forklift truck protruded out eachside of the machine. Apparently he should have stopped and made sure no one was injured, but he stopped the truck and put his thumb up to one of the workers and the reciprocated in the same way. Later one of them went in the office and reported him.
By the way ben, I believe he should have had a refresher course on Forklift truck driving, he has been asked but noyhing has been done for a refresher course but other people have been given this training and I believe in preference to Matthew.
