Update on Sainsbury’s Dartmouth Devon

February 20, 2013

So here is the latest in this ongoing madness, As you know David got given a humiliating merry go around From Sainsburys Dartmouth Devon. Told he needs home office proof that he is legally able to work in his home country. It seems some people have contacted Sainsburys on David’s behalf. While this isn’t what we asked for, we do value the sentiment, thank you to those who did such, as it did get us somewhere. We now have a name and number to call in recruitment to discuss the humiliating and stupid situation.

Meanwhile  here is the response he got from Sainsburys Dartmouth. this was yet another slap in the face to David on Tuesday 19/2/2013. Now remember the woman that interviewed David gave him 2 days to get a document they knew that as a british citazen he wont beable to get, because all he needs are: A document giving a person’s permanent National Insurance number and name. This could be a: P45, P60, National Insurance card, or a letter from a Government agency.
David took with him;
His Passport (which isn’t fully valid due to the fact he now lives with me and not with parents)
So he also took with him.
P45 / P60 (found inside a job seekers sign on book)
National Insurance card
He also took with him a utility bill and bank statement to prove where he lived
Apparently these could be stolen or falsified was the reason they were not accepted.
Well given the imposable task he was given, to get a letter from the home office in 72 hours, they rejected him in less then 12. here’s the e-mail. (Posted by David’s request, he also proof reads my posts.)
