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.

"I had occasion to consult Jessica on two significant legal matters over the last 2 years, one a matter of Employee Law , the second relating to a claim for Damages, both resulted in a highly satisfactory conclusion due to Jessica's expert knowledge, attention to detail, sound judgment, negotiating skills and proactive attitude.
I could not have placed the matter in better hands, on a personal level Jessica was a pleasure to work with, always positive, immediately responsive and aware at all times.
I have recommended Jessica to others who have had similar results and outcomes and would do so again without reserve."
