Making Redundancies

Making redundancies within a company is not an easy process, firstly you must decide whether redundancies are needed.

When making redundancies, you should plan each stage of a redundancy process, this will help you to follow the correct procedure and do right by your staff.

The first thing for a company to look at when making redundancies would be to see if there is any way they can be avoided. Things like reducing work hours (temporarily) asking employers to stop work just for a short time and not hiring any new employees can all help to avoid a company going down the redundancy route.

If you feel as an employer that making redundancies is the only option, you must hold redundancy consultations with your staff and their representatives. The consultation is a chance for you to explain your planned changes and for your employee to give you their input and feedback to the proposed plans.

When making redundancies you must select the employees in a fair way and not discriminate against anyone. You must base the decision on their standard of work, attendance record, skills qualifications, and experience. You must not select any employees based on age, disability, gender, race, religion, or sex. There are many others do’s and don’ts so make sure as an employer you follow the rules.

When making redundancies an employer should give the employee redundancy notice, the amount of time depends on how long they have worked for the company. If it is less than a month they do not have the right to statutory notice, 1 month to 2 years the minimum notice is 1 week, 2 to 12 years, the notice given must be a week for every year they have worked, 12 years or more the minimum notice is 12 weeks. It is advised that the notice is sent by email or letter so that both parties have a dated record.

Luxury Car Hire

Luxury cars serve as a high-end status symbol and leave a lasting impression in both business and personal environments. There are many luxury car hire options to choose from so making the right choice can be difficult especially if you are restricted by budget.

Hiring a luxury car gives anyone the chance to drive a high-end vehicle they otherwise wouldn’t. Cars are available to hire any time of the year and for any occasion. Whether it’s a special event such as a wedding or just a chance to drive a fast car, then there is a car for you.

Each car has its own characteristics and unique design which offers a different experience based on what you pick. Rolls Royce is big luxury cars to cruise around in while a Ferrari offers a sportier ride due to being smaller and lighter.

Why Hire a Luxury Car?

Hiring a luxury car means you don’t have to worry about the price deprecating as you’re not actually purchasing the vehicle itself. The instant you drive a car off the forecourt it will depreciate and mileage greatly affects the value of luxury cars.

The maintenance of a luxury car can be quite expensive due to the specialist parts often required. Even things like tyres and oil can cost more than a regular car due to the specialised nature of the parts.

Insuring a luxury car is costly due to their performance nature and how they are attractive to potential thieves. Extensive repairs on a luxury car after an accident can end up costing thousands, so the insurance premiums are usually high.

Vast Car Choice

Having a choice of cars is the biggest advantage of hiring a luxury car. Renting just for a weekend means you can change your mind and hire something else at a different time.

Galvanizing

Galvanizing is a process that protects metal from corrosion. It works by coating metal with zinc to stop any rusting or corroding shielding the metal from its environment. Any water or moisture in the air will not be able to damage the metal underneath the protective zinc coating.

The history of galvanizing started in 1836, Sorel in France took out the first patent for the process of coating steel by cleaning it, then dipping it in steel, he came up with the process and name of Galvanizing.

Hot-dip galvanizing is one of the most common processes of galvanizing, it is done by immersing the product in zinc, which will then produce a corrosion-resistant covering on to the metal. It is done so by causing a metallurgical reaction between the metal and zinc.

The other type of galvanizing is known as electroplate, this is done by putting a steel surface and applying a thin coating using an electrical current. Again, this will stop the metal from rusting or corroding.

Galvanizing is the most environmentally friendly process available; it has many sustainable features. It provides maintenance-free longevity, Zinc and steel are 100% recyclable and are a renewable building material.

Galvanizing is better than simply painting the metal because the paint is softer and not as thick (although the thickness can vary) Paint can be susceptible to scratches and chips which will then expose the metal to corrosion.

 

find your MGB roadster

The MG has been a great car for years and one that can famously be stripped and rebuilt with a handful of tools.  Well done Keith J for restoring the MGB roadster called blue bell.  Records show he purchased the car when 17 and living at home, he and his father worked long and hard to get it on the road first time round as it required a few body and engine repairs.  After Getting Married having a few children and finding himself a ‘real Job’ Keith found he had to put the MGB in the garden under some tarpaulin.  After years of being the lowest (not least important) priority on his list he found retirement and the time he craved for. Kids out of the house, work done with! now time for his real love (don’t worry, kids or wife wont read this).  2 years, a lot of welding, blaspheming and marked knuckles later- Bluebelle has been reborn….  We hope for more updates from Keith regarding what happened and when, keep visiting for the news…
