because i have handed my resignation in and they are now questioning my home/office and mobile phone bill. I wasn't provided with a company phone, i was told they would pay my current phone bills
hello Alex, have you replied to my question?
Ok - have they always asked for itemisation or just this bill?
Ok - so why this one?
because i have resigned , and have filed a stat demand for all money owing from march 2014 to july 2014 a total of £9014
i think they are trying to find ways in which to challenge the stat demand
Ok - anything in your contract that says you have to provide an itemised bill? How many months/years you been working there?
That is one impressive bill by the way!
no nothing in my contract other than - they will pay all normal and reasonable expenses, the bill includes £8000 in VAT owed and 615 in total phone bills over these 5 months, the remaining is travel at 25p / mile
i have been with them since jan 06 2014
on a consultancy basis
Ok - well I can tell you it is not a breach of the Data Protection act
That is because it just shows numbers
It does not say who they are for
but ringing them will?
Therefore just telephone numbers is not a breach of the DPA as this is not personal information as it can not be related or tied to any individual.
Further you can redact the numbers that are personal.
However if they call them, this WOULD be a breach
But until they do it would not
Does that clarify matters?
ok that answers that, I can supply them stating that if they call any they will be in breach of the data protection act
thank you very much
Does this answer the question for you?
yes thank you
