Sorting out employment law in the UK is something I’ve been calling on for years.
I’ve been keeping a close eye on how our automotive sector is doing, because anyone with an understanding of business and the economy would appreciate how important the industry is to Britain.
If the UK is to overcome its skills problem, the Government has to do something about the ‘square peg, round hole’ solution it is persisting with.
The workplace is meant to be a place where people learn, a pathway to bettering themselves you could say; So someone please tell me why companies have the audacity to exploit our young people with ‘unpaid shifts’.
The departure of Labour peer, Lord Adonis, as independent infrastructure advisor to the Government last week highlights a far more serious issue for business than a simple disagreement between traditional political rivals over a controversial policy.
The Autumn Budget is looming and I can tell you, there’s one thing for sure that I hope to see included, and that’s a boost for apprenticeships!
I’ve received the most wonderful news that my company, Pimlico Plumbers, has been granted permission to appeal our long-running and potentially ground-breaking employment case to the Supreme Court.
I am shaking with rage I’m so angry about today’s Supreme Court ruling that says that charging people to bring employment tribunal cases against employers is illegal.
I’m getting extremely annoyed about the way people are using the phrase ‘gig economy’. Not only is it being portrayed as something new, but also the implication is that anyone involved in paying people on a ‘job done’ basis is some kind of abusive employer, running an exploitative business model.
