But I haven't been hibernating... far from it!  I've restructured my business, and The Back Office is now focussing primarily on HR.  We have a lovely new website - …

Inappropriate use of Facebook! Do you have a Social Media Policy?

I attended a Mock Employment Tribunal earlier this week. The grounds of the claim were age discrimination, victimisation and harassment.  The claimant was claiming against his employer AND against his line manager personally.



Ultimately, the claimant failed in some elements of his claim but won in one, with an award against his employer and - surprisingly - against his line manager personally.  That would…

Yet more parental policies for employers to get to grips with....

Having just got to grips with the recent parental policies (in fact I've just produced a full set of parental policies for a client of mine), the Government has issued a further consultation document seeking to change the rules, yet again.

Why you should pick your trades wisely

The majority of retail traders do not pick their trades wisely. They tend to consider the random nature of this market and place a trade on any setup. When you are spread betting, keep in mind that picking your trade is imperative to ensuring your profit. It is like picking the right fruit to eat. If you are in a market and there are lots of sellers calling on you to buy their fruits, you have to understand that not all of them are going to offer you the same quality fruits.
