Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
Are you saying they have treated you less favourably because of your condition?
yes....There have always been nominations each year and students awarded an outstanding student award for each faculty.. I am not just say this, but I was head and shoulders above my peers.
You need to write and set out your losses and that you have been discriminated against and want a response within 14 days or say you will go to Court. You should make sure you send this recorded delivery and keep a copy.
If they do not response you then you can issue proceedings in the County Court. You can either do this online at: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk or by completing form N1 http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n001-eng.pdf and take it to your local County Court. But you need to quantify a loss - or you can put TBA if you issue a paper claim.
The Court will then issue a claim which a copy will be sent to the Defendant who will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce.
If the matter is defended it will be set down for a trial. If the claim is for £10,000 or less it will be a small claim and you will not need representation.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
I have already sent several letters of complaint to the college explaining my loss of the award and its impact...Also, I did contact the EASS who wrote to the college....The college have made a reply but its a meek attempt to smooth over a wrong!....I do have in front of me a N1 form.....Its now knowing what and how to put this forward?
You need to say on what basis they have breached the Equality Act and what you seek to recover
You put this in the particulars of claim
Does that help?
yes, do I ask for the award that I want and / or financial compensation?
You can ask for either or both
If I ask for financial to be part of my claim...How do I value my compensation?....is that based on tuition / college fees or feelings ??
You can put for the Court to decide.
ok....I had read around this a little but I think you have explained it well to me.....Thank you for you help a.Alex
