No, there isn't a contract either wriiten or verbal.
My wife makes her bookings and takes her payments when the junior isn't in. a proportion of the amount she pays the owner is supposed to cover the cost of the junior.
To clarify for us, the client record cards contain name address and colouring information. She has only taken her clients record cards. her clients are covered by her insurance only. They are made out on cards provided by the salon owner, as part of what she provides for the money she receives. Bookings are taken from my wife and other staff in the shop. All payments are taken and go in the till and my wife is paid her 50% of her takings at the end of the week. The salon owner has stated: Feel free to take down any info off of them, but they need to be returned, as she says it is due to the data act as they were made out at the salon, as she has to have original copies for insurance cover and client confidentiality. But as they are my wife's client's covered by my wife's insurance, she is responsible for them and keeping hold of the cards. Hope this is clearer.
My wife has just asked if we can have the communication with yourself as if the question has come from her, instead of from myself. If I reword the questions can you reply as if to my wife. I'll put your additional questions into the original text. Sorry for the inconvenience.
I work in a salon as a self employed stylist renting a chair from the owner. I have decided to leave due to deteriorating relationship with the owner. I have always made out and maintained my own record cards, and I am also covered by my own insurance. I don not have a contract with the owner either verbal or written. I also make bookings and take payments from my clients. Before I move I have a couple of questions that I cant find an answer to, can you help? 1. Do the cards belong to me or the owner? 2. Can / should I take them with me as I think most of my clients will move to my new salon? 3. Can the owner insist that I leave the cards for 'data protection or insurance cover reasons?RegardsAngela Bunker
