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 with Jessica for five years. She is ultra responsive, working long hours, late into the night when there is a problem which is time-sensitive.
Jessica gives clear, concise and practical advice, and understands what our business is trying to achieve. I have a business headquartered in the US, where more than half of our employees are in other countries, so it is important to have someone I can work with for all my UK legal needs. I would happily recommend her to others."
