I hope so!... have a situation which is fairly complex but

I hope so!... have a situation which is fairly complex but hopefully the answer is straightforward. Someone wants me to include contact details on my website but I'm not comfortable doing that...Assistant: Where are you? It matters because laws vary by location.Customer: I'm based in the UK I am the owner and Director of a design company , the other company making these requests are in Dubai UAE. I own the trademark here in the UK. My long-time friend and fellow professional Jamie has lived in Dubai for 15 years. I let him set a company using the same brand name as I was comfortable with Jamie representing the brand professionally and responsibly. H was the person in charge and had 2 investors. I investor has pulled out and the other has gone rogue, making Jamie's life hell to the point he was asked to and has resigned from the company... leaving me in a very awkward position. There is no formal link or contracts between us...but they are making demnands for me to put someone else name on my website whoi I don't know and am not comfortable with this as it as if I am endorsing them giving credibility and I have worked hard for 25 years to build a professional reputation and strong brand.Assistant: Have you discussed this with a manager or HR? Or with a lawyer?Customer: No, I am the founder/owner/director of the brand and have no links to the firm in Dubai other than some shared materials as I supported Jamie to help them win work etc- this is why I wanted adviceAssistant: What is your employment status? Are you an employee, freelancer, consultant or contractor? Do you belong to a union?Customer: As noted above I and the owner/founder Director of my brand here in the UKAssistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I own all of our websites 100% and haven't signed (or been asked to sign) anything to suggest otherwise. We paid for the purchase of the domain and all hosting costs with a third party – Godaddy. The only unknow element having looked into this appears to be the source code used on the site (which apparently with all website belongs to the developer?) as Greg (rogue investor in Dubai firm) convinced us (which we did in good faith) to use a Web develop firm owed by a very good friend of his. Which at the time just seemed like a nice gesture to get a low cost upgrade. Even though we subsequently took out a separate new customer account with the same firm to rebuild and reformat every single page on the website- so should have full direction over the use of the site – However, in light of those recent emails I wouldn't put it past Greg's close friend to take his side. This has been playing on my mind - so on Monday night I built a brand new website from Scratch using Wix and could port this over to replace the site currently uploaded to my domain www.lightalliance.com (to which he is demanding access).. Are there any implication with doing this? (I already own the domain/and have since inception paid all associated hosting costs so could do this immediately if it protected us).

Neighbourly dispute during house sale. Our neighbour has

Neighbourly dispute during house sale.Our neighbour has gone out of their way to steal our house buyer and has succeeded.We were at the latter stages of the process and throughout our neighbour was trying to glean information on our buyer as well as trying to glean comparative information about our property so they could use it against us.We would like to discourage the buyer from buying our neighbour's property but we want to do so within the law.We've no issue with the buyer purchasing any other property in the village but due to the duplicitous behaviour from both our neighbour and buyer, we would really prefer not to live next to them.Is there an email we could formulate that would strongly discourage them from proceeding with that specific property but not cross the legal line and be deemed threatening?Regards

We are a company. 3 employees have had chats in FB amongst

We are a company. 3 employees have had chats in FB amongst themselves and were happy because they thought they had found a reason that the Manager had stolen.A 4th employee sat at the computer, searched for something and in open different files this facebook appeared and was open. The first line basically said 'Now we have got him'. This 4th employee scrolled up to see who they had 'got' and clearly it was the manager that they were gunning for.Now the 3 want the 4th to be fired for reading confidential information.It has been proved that one of the original 3 is gunning to get the Manager fired for no reason.The same one who is out to get the manager wants 4th to be fired.Is 4th's actions is obviously an violation of privacy - is it a fireable offence in this case.Can I fire the 'toxic' employee for all these false accusations and his determination to get 4th fired (who he does not like)?

Jo,. I am a director of a company, (logged in Companies

Hi Jo,I am Pete. I am a director of a company, (logged in Companies House).The owner of the company has told me to ‘f**k of out of the business' – later not formalised but ratified to 28 days leave. This has come with no explanation and despite requests this has not been written down.I have raised a grievance but been ignored.Worked since 2015Since this incident there have been many issues:1. I have been locked out of my company emails2. The owner has publically humiliated me, (this occurred before being put on ‘suspension'), it includes samples of emails to my direct reports, where he refers to me a ‘nob'3. He has taken one member of staff aside and told her:4. I am a ‘proven sexual predator', (they listed names), he also used email to tell me the same, however they cannot provide any evidence of this. Sounds like they infer work affairs but these people have partners and will not be happy however it is now common knowledge in town.5. Then accused of unarthorised spending, then stealing cash but no proof6. Accused of beating an ex-partner, although I actually sought proof from the police, (who have provided it)7. I was assaulted in America, it was a well documented incident, logged in the US and in the UK, he has said he has proof that I was not the victim and I did not receive injuries.8. I won't ever work for them again as too many staff will be unhappy and leaveNone of these points have any basis in fact.Regards,Pete

I was caught shoplifting last week in a retail store worth

hi I was caught shoplifting last week in a retail store worth £400 but also had individual tags of things I had taken on another occasion. The police were not called but advised that they would be called and it would be investigated. I got caught on way out from shop. I do not need to steal and honestly don't k ow why I do it. I think it's stress related and kleptomania as I have only done before 11 years ago when under stress again. I am petrified and nervous wreck waiting for police to come to my house, not knowing what to expect or do. I've been caught 11 years ago and went to court and was fined. The shop think I had a De tagger which I didn't, there were genuinely no metal tags. They also think I was targeting the clothes as I had all those tags from clothes on me. Is it better to admit it was clothes I had stolen before even though the value is up to £600 or to let them think I was targeting the clothes? what are the likely next steps if police still haven't been and will I get prison? will the record come up from 11 years ago? I'm sorry for all the quAssistant: Where are you located? It matters because laws vary by location.Customer: ManchesterAssistant: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: the shop said they were going to report it to the policeAssistant: Anything else you want the solicitor to know before I connect you?Customer: no
