In Sickness And In Health With James Legal

February 20, 2015
By

A free seminar on how to deal with sickness in the workplace is taking place at the World Trade Centre on Thursday 26 February. Jade Nelson, business lawyer from James Legal will be talking local business owners through how it can affect the business and what can be done about it. Ms Nelson explains: “Here at James Legal we are inundated with questions regarding staff members being off work, on sick. For some businesses, having staff off for months at a time can have a detrimental effect on the company and it can be a huge worry as jobs need to be covered and wages need to be paid.” “Many businesses don’t realise that you need to handle people who are absent, whether it be short-term or long-term, very carefully due to the impact of legislation such as disability discrimination.” “If the illness is having a substantial impact on the employee’s day-to-day activities and is either likely to or has already lasted longer than 12 months, the employee may be considered to have a ‘disability’ for the purposes of disability discrimination legislation.” “In such circumstances the company is under a statutory duty to do certain things, such as making reasonable…

Funding For Yorkshire Bank Bike Libraries Opens For Bids

People are being encouraged to bid for funding to set up a Yorkshire Bank Bike Library to create the country’s first ever network of bike libraries. Following the launch of the scheme, community groups, charities and not for profit businesses from across Yorkshire are now being invited to make applications for funding to set-up a bike library. Successful applicants will receive funding to support them to set-up a library which will see them become a point for people to borrow bikes for free. Any donated bikes that need repairing will be made safe and ready to ride. Bikes can then be borrowed for anywhere between one day to several months. The hope is that people throughout the county, regardless of their circumstances, will have access to a bike, especially young people. The public are being asked to donate old or unwanted bikes at a number of donation stations already established across the county. Yorkshire Bank has already lent its support by holding a bike amnesty for staff, at the bank’s headquarters in Leeds. Yorkshire Bank has teamed up with Welcome to Yorkshire to support the Cycle Yorkshire legacy initiative to turn this ambitious and ground-breaking scheme into a reality. Gary…

Road Improvements To Begin At Seaton Ross

August 27, 2014
By

A scheme to improve the section of Everingham Lane, Seaton Ross, between Rytham Gate Junction and Seaton Ross Village, is due to start on Monday, 1 September 2014, and is scheduled to take five weeks to complete. This is to widen the road to 6.0m, similar to the previous scheme to Seaton Common Lane. The narrow width of the existing road and the nature of the work mean it will be necessary to close the road to through traffic until the work is complete. Access to individual properties will be maintained from either the Rytham Gate Junction or the Seaton Ross end of the site, depending on where the work is being carried out at the time. Emergency services, postal services and refuse collection will be allowed access into the site. Road users will be required to use the diversion route which will be signed via the B1228. Any further work that may be necessary at the junctions will be undertaken within temporary traffic control. The work will be carried out by East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s Streetscene Services. The programme dates could be affected by weather or other unforeseen circumstances, but should this be the case, residents and businesses…
