I suspect that my brother has been stealing money from my deceased (3 days ago) father's accounts (cash) and when I asked him about the cash (over £5k in 6 months) he first said he was using it for his business and he would repay it, then said he didn't know, and 2 days later said he had 2 receipts for roof/gutter work on father's house (where he lives; Dad was in a Home for 15 mths).

My situation is that, whilst at my work place my motorcycle

My situation is that, whilst at my work place my motorcycle was vandalised whilst on the works car park.Normally I realise that this wouldn't be a work problem, but I had repeatedly asked to be allowed to park my motorbike around the corner, so that it was not on view from the main road, but I was told if I did I would get a disciplinary.After my motorbike got vandalised whilst someone tried to steal it. I was told this was nothing to do with them and all the repair costs would be my own.But they have now said that I am now allowed to park my bike around the corner out of view from the main road which I where I wanted to park it in the first place.I hoped ive explained this ok, essentially I think my work place should foot the cost for the repairs, because theyForced me to park it in a place I explained was unsafe, then changed there mind after it was vandalised, but still will not pay the cost.Assistant: Where are you?

I own a company and found one of my staff ( self employed

I own a company and found one of my staff ( self employed contractor) was stealing from me. I was vulnerable at the time as I had to have two lots of major surgery, a family suicide and then my mum was diagnosed with bone marrow cancer. Over the last few months I discovered he had stolen more than I first realised and asked him to pay some back. He's deleted a lot of my accounts and so I threatened going to the Police tomorrow if I didn't hear back from him. I have just received a response from him saying he had taken legal advice and given all my correspondence to them.Assistant: Where are you? It matters because laws vary by location.Customer: I am in Ashford Surrey EnglandAssistant: What steps have you taken so far?Customer: I had a Private Investogator accompany me when I told him I'd found the discrepancies and we asked him to leave and I issued a letter stating I wouldn't at that point go to the Police unless there was a lot more theft. He was to stick to some guidelines like not deleting my accounts and not bad mouthing the business etc.Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I then had further illness and trauma which I can't disclose but itvtook me a few months to find more evidence and found that he had stolen on a regular basis so I e mailed him. He started to deny then and I sent some evidence on e mail.I had further surgery during this time and this has slowed my investigations down
