Turbervilles Business Newsletter - Autumn 2010


Welcome to our autumn newsletter.

In this edition we look at the implications of the Equality Act, which will start to come into effect in October 2010. We have reports on how the default retirement age is to be scrapped, and on how the Government has introduced a “one in, one out” curb on business regulations.

We see how a hotel was awarded damages against an IT company that supplied a computerised booking system that was not fit for purpose, and there is also the case of the developer who must pay compensation after stopping work on a project because of the recession. There’s a report on the fact that there is now more than £62bn owed to businesses in overdue invoices, and we also see why a father lost his fight to prove that he was his son’s business partner.

We also look at why unemployment is expected to create a surge in the number of business start-ups in the coming year.

We hope you find these articles interesting. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like more information about the issues they raise, or any other legal issue affecting you or your business.
