The original contract (for waste removal) was set up by FD(myself) and updated on several occasions by the FD. Dates as follows.
FD was put as contact name on contract.
However FD not contacted and new contract signed18-2-14 by warehouse manager.
It is possible other party thought he had authority to sign.
Warehouse manager also thought he was simply signing a change to service, i.e 3 bins to 4 bins, but instead it was a legal contract which also incorporated a hefty rate increase. This was not explained to him by the sales field agent.
Furthermore, the orginal agreed rate dating back to late 2012 has not been charged correctly so I certainly want that re-crediting too.
I believe the latest contract should not be enforceable and I should be free to
1) Serve termination notice period
2) Reclaim overcharged rate
I am concerned that during the 3 month notice period that the rate that is being charged is not agreed.
Just so there is no confusion, I am the FD.
I personally signed 4 contracts, and only on the last occasion was the new contract sent to warehouse manager.
I was not aware negotiations were taking place for this. The warehouse manager also was not aware they were signing a legal contract, he simply thought, it was a document to say they needed 4 bins collected weekly instead of the 3.
