today. Also today are many electronic transfers.These together total around 280
claimants (60-65% or so of all the acceptances). All letters/cheques have gone by
That leaves around 33% where we are awaiting funds later this week or possibly early
next week. They should receive their payments next week, by cheque or BACS.
There will then be only a further 5% (20-25 claimants) who came back with late acceptances,
their funds will be another 2 weeks or so we are hoping to have their payments made
before the Christmas break.
Please do not phone for more information everybody will hopefully receive payment

have not arrived yet this is a postal delay and outwith Gildeas control. However
if you did not return you acceptance letter by mid-September then unfortunately
you are in the second batch which will not be sent out for another three weeks as
that is when the monies will be released by SLC. We apologise for the delay in the

Our panel Solicitors met again with the SLC’s solicitors today (Simpson and Marwick)
who confirmed that it was still their position that they will be settling the claims
and that having dealt largely with the union claimants they have now moved onto
us. There is a fourth group behind us who will be dealt with later.
After lengthy discussions about the way forward and concerns about the length of
time the matter had been taking they have indicated that they will analysis our
cases with urgency.
It is expected that offers will be received in August. The panel solicitors will
then be writing out with those details in an offer letter. Realistically, payments
should be made in October.
We would ask you to bear with us and await your offer letters.
Claimants who are no longer employed with SLC
Claimants who left before the February of 2014 will not be receiving an offer
Meeting arranged for 14/07/2015 with SLC’s solicitors Simpson & Marwick to finalise
SLC’s solicitors Simpson & Marwick have after a protracted time now finished with
the unions. They will begin dealing with our claim next week. Therefore our assessment
of settlement by mid-summer looks to be accurate.
With the union claim settled Simpson and Marwick will now be dealing with our claim.
Therefore all still on track for completion by midsummer.
Due to the union settlement taking longer than Simpson & Marwick envisaged it has
pushed our settlement timescale back as well. It would appear that Simpson & Marwick
are running a month behind.
We are now looking at midsummer for completion.
Apologise, there seems to be some confusion with regards to the wording of the group
email update on 25/02/2015.
To summarise the meeting with SLC's solicitors Simpson & Marwick on 24/02/2015:
- All valid claims will be paid out.
- All occupations which were included within the Fox payout will be included in the
- Payout should happen early summer.
We are sorry that the email update was not clear enough and we hope this summary
answers any question which may have arisen.
