The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Business - By Paul Grin­nell Twit­ter: @PTPaulGrin­nell

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.
