Exit your Diamond Resorts (Europe) timeshare and avoid 2020 maintenance fees

Each year, thousands of Brits are cold called or approached in the street to be hailed as “competition” winners or presented with offers of “free holidays”. The catch being you have to attend a presentation in order to claim your “prize”.

The presentation is a high pressure sales pitch which can last several hours with many people finding it difficult to leave without signing up for a Timeshare, a decision they often later live to regret.

Care Home contracts

The law provides greater protection for consumers when they enter into contracts with businesses than it does when businesses contract with other businesses.

When starting a new job, many employees will often overlook the crucial part of reviewing the finer details of their employment contract.

Contracts of employment are important documents as they set out the key terms of your employment with your new company. It is therefore vital to check these terms carefully before you agree to them. In particular, you need to query the following before you sign on the dotted line.

Are you protected by your Terms & Conditions?

Contracts are the lifeblood of any business. You cannot sell a good or a service without one. Every business has to contract if it is to survive and succeed.

Despite this reality, often not nearly enough attention is paid to making sure that appropriate terms and conditions govern the contracts that are entered into.

Employers at risk when hiring self-employed sub-contractors

The shifting business environment of the ‘gig’ economy provides a difficult arena to achieve a degree of legal clarity as to the employment status of those within it.

Many employers use freelance and self-employed sub-contractors believing that such workers do not have the same employment rights as ordinary employees. However a flurry of recent cases has illustrated the significant risks that employers run in engaging workers on a self-employed or freelance basis.
