Car dealership helps charity to motor on
Company to donate £100 for each vehicle sold to city hospice
A luxury car dealership in Peterborough is helping to power up a city charity. The Marshall Maserati car showroom, in Tyrell Park, has vowed to donate £100 to the Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice for every car it sells this month.
It is the equivalent to the cost of funding one nurse for one day at the hospice.
Thedealership is also providing a weekend with a new Maserati in an auction at a James Bond-themed ball at the hospice’s grounds next month.
The hospice is hosting its Silver Anniversary Ball in the gardens of the charity’s Grade I-listed mansion and will host 350 guests, many of whom have an existing link with the hospice.
Tim Edwards, brand manager at Marshall Maser- ati, said: “We’re delighted to work with Sue Ryder. We’re confident that, together with guestsattheball, wecanmake a worthwhile contribution.”
Judith Wojtowicz, representing The Bond Girls, a group of volunteers whohave helpedorganisetheBall, said: “Thesupportofahigh-profile brand such as Marshall Maserati reflects the generosity and goodwill of so many individuals and businesses.”
QAI currently work on a zero-hours contract. I have been offered another zerohours contract with a different employer that I would like to accept in addition to my current job. I have noticed my contract says I can’t work for another company though. Where do I stand? In May 2015, the Government banned the use of exclusivity clauses in zero-hours contracts, making exclusivity clauses unenforceable.
In addition, the Exclusivity Terms in Zero Hours Contracts (Redress) Regulations 2015, that came in to force in January 2016, protect zerohours workers from any detriment as a result of ignoring exclusivity clauses byworking for another employer.
In practice this meansthat you are within your rights to take up the new zero-hours contract in addition to your current contract. Youarepro- tected from being dismissed primarily for the reason that you have breached the exclusivity clause in your zerohourscontractandwouldalso beentitled to bring a claim for automatic unfair dismissal should you be dismissed for this reason.
You would also be entitled to seek compensation for any detriment that occurred as a result of taking up other employment; such as withholding hoursorbeingtreated less favourably than colleagues.
