Assistant: How can I help? I have done some building work

Hi,Assistant: Hello. How can I help?Customer: I have done some building work for a friend -fitting a kitchen.Assistant: Where are you? It matters because laws vary by location.Customer: Slough UKAssistant: What steps have you taken so far?Customer: I have completed the work except maybe a few hours work which I offered to get someone else to do as the job is a 4 hour return trip for me.Anyway there was no contract,no fixed quotation only a guide for various parts of the job.I priced the job very low as we were friends but have had many delays due to their mind changing and additional work and they seem to think everything is included and won't pay for extra days worked.I object because I think they planned this to an extent as they didn't ask for firm costs or agree on what was to be done for the price.now I'm out of pocket and they seem to think the agreement is open ended and are trying to not pay even though duration and amount of work is greater.if I stop can they force me to do unspecified work.The guy is used to negotiating st his work and I feel as though they have tricked meAssistant: Have you discussed this wage-and-hour issue with a manager or HR? Or with a lawyer?Customer: No I havent.im a self employed worker fitting a kitchen in their home.Assistant: What is your employment status? Are you an employee, freelancer, consultant or contractor? Do you belong to a union?Customer: Im a self employed man running my own firm and have done so for 27 yearsAssistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: The customer is a very shrewd operator and i think he orchestrated this no contract situation so he could keep adfing on work and they have prevented me from working properly by making me only take out parts of the kitchen at a time instead of doing it in one operation which is what my price was based on.

I was charged this morning with ‘common assualt' After I

Hi, I was charged this morning with ‘common assualt' After I accidentally closed a taxi door on the drivers leg, I was with a few friends in the taxi who can confirm this was a complete accident, we had been out drinking so we were being silly but it was an accident. I jumped out the taxi to see if he was ok an I apologised and 10 minutes later the police tapped me on my shoulder and arrested me, they couldn't believe themselves I had been charged. During my interview I said no comment as I wasn't particularly sure how to handle the situation as I was alone, as such I was charged and I have to go to court in January. Do I need a lawyer?Assistant: Do you have any upcoming court dates on the assault charges?Customer: 7/1/19Assistant: Where did the assault occur?Customer: IslingtonAssistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: A few years ago, I was arrested for a fight at football however this was dropped with no further action by the victim as we were team mates etc, I have been arrested for drink driving twice and am almost at the end of my 3 year ban.
