    My National Insurance card is different to my passport and birth certificate but that has never been a problem

    basically when i was born and my mum sent of the birth certificate form....the person at the office who processed it, copied my name wrong.
    my name is Ravinder (and i have always spelt it like this as this is the correct way of spelling it) but on my birth certificate it is spelt as Ravindur (with a u) cause of the mistake which was made by the office themselves. however it was neva changed as when i stated school and my doctors filed my records...they said that my name is OK if i spell it how i wanted 2 (Ravinder)
    so my passport and my birth certificate is spelt the same (ravindur) because when my mum applied for my first passport they require the birth certificate.
    however my NI card has my correct spelling.

    OK now i have explained all that...heres the issue....i used to work for woolies and they had no problem accepting my passport and my NI when i joined..they didn't say a single thing but now i work for Sports Direct and everything was OK (been working 2weeks) until y-day where my manager got a call from head office saying that they have to send me home because they sense some fraud this is a load of crap because i was born in England and have been to school, doctors, abroad, bank accounts, i have worked and have a driving license but no 1 has been bothered by that 1 spelling mistake.
    so why have sports direct done this to me? and they done it while i have already worked there for 2weeks....y didn't they do this when i signed up??
    now I'm out of work(i'm temporarily dismissed until i get a new birth certifcate and passport with correct spelling)..and need the money for UNI!
    is there anything i can dispute against this?
    what are your views?

    sports direct are a horrible company to work for. let them send you home and look for another job they are seriously doing you a favour. they will underpay you every month and say it a error which they will never correct. they will change your hours at the last minute and expect you to do them. they have no respect for their staff or customers.

    LOL, plus their staff look like garden nomes because of their uniforms



    that too lol. i used to have to wear that uniform :-( leaving was the best thing i ever did. i still know people that work there as managers they get paid for 48hours a week but in reality do 60-70. thats alot of unpaid hours.

    my mate works in one, he keeps banging on about something called … my mate works in one, he keeps banging on about something called "close-down" they do everyday? what the hell is it?



    its basically where they tidy up for hours after close.

    oh and the nights they do stocktake which is split over 3 night every 3 or 4 months the staff do not get paid for even though they can be there as late as 2am. and you cant refuse to them cos its in the contract

    There are more people working in Britain with fake IDs, fake passports.fake birth certificates,Thanks god at last some employers are starting to do their jobs right, You could have sorted this by yourself ,Why blame someone else.

    I am going to ask the obvious but why never correct it by deed poll? I … I am going to ask the obvious but why never correct it by deed poll? I would say over cautious but in the right an employer has a legal obligation to make sure you are legal to work, if your NI, and offical ID don't match they were right to be cautious, it's them that could be in a lot of trouble if something was amiss.Just because woolies let it slip, does not mean others will as you have seen, it will cause you more issues later in life too, if your official name is different to that of your national insurance no, especially if you ever need security or credit clearance for a job



    yeh ive asked for some form of identity from NHS and once ive got that i can go to the registrar office and get it changed..i guess the onli thing i can do is get both my BC n Passport sorted out in the meantime i get 2 laze at home
