Are there drawbacks to Branson's flexi-holiday plan?
'Unlimited holiday' is laced with legal pitfalls for small businesses. It sounds good in principle, but the policy - championed by SIr Richard Branson - could open businesses up to discrimination claims.
Right to be forgotten: what does it mean for employee's references? In the employment area the balancing act between transparency and privacy is difficult and the issues much less understood.
"I have worked extensively with Jessica, especially since 2002 and she stands out as the most effective employment lawyer I have worked with. She combines an excellent mastery of all aspects of employment law with a strong commercial focus: she is therefore empathetic to the commercial pressures and drivers faced by clients and develops appropriate legal strategies, complete with risk analyses and risk mitigation plans.
As well as providing clear, unequivocal legal input, she can also support clients with practical implementation guidelines, legal documentation templates and other ‘turnkey’ services. In this sense, unlike many ‘old school’ employment lawyers, she genuinely partners with clients in a practical, hands-on way.
Jessica is highly intelligent, articulate and persuasive and, at the same time, relates extremely well to clients at all organisational levels. Whilst pragmatic in her approach, she stands her ground when necessary but in a non-threatening manner. She is also very responsive to client needs, often ‘going the extra mile’ to provide quick responses to queries and other requirements, frequently at unsocial hours when necessary."
