Penninsula – stop talking shit
According to employment law firm Peninsula, 233 million hours are lost every month as a result of employees "wasting time" on social networking.
Thanks Penninsula. That’s a new headline isn’t it?
Lost? Potato, Pota-to.
Mike Huss, director of employment law at Peninsula called on all firms to block access to sites such as Facebook.
He asked: "Why should employers allow their workers to waste two hours a day on Facebook when they are being paid to do a job?"
He said that loss of productivity was proving a "major headache" for firms.
Headache? Do you even know what a headache is Mr. Huss?
A headache is having to live on the breadline for a long period of time because one of your clients (Swift Marketing Solutions) deducted wages from me as an incentive to make me work more effectively and at the same time changed the terms of my contract without giving me a new one. Is it not the responsibility of Penninsula to ensure that their clients are acting within the rules?
Although to be fair to you,Â I suspect Mr. Huss, that your Manchester office was not told of these previous actions at the time that you were advising them on how to legally get rid of me.
Might I suggest that both you and your clients spend a little bit more time on social networks to enable to them join the real world where the rest of humanity is.
