Im sat here drinking beer, pottering on HUKD and watching platoon, my good lady is busy working on reports and valuations etc for the claims for floods in morpeth, seems when the floods hit only the victims are thought about and not these hard working loss adjusters trying to get the peoples claims progressed as quickly as possible, im ready for bed no wand she says she may have to woek all night to get these claims sorted, can i have a big round of applause for her please guys?

thanks

Yep, I'd want her sorting out my claim for defo. Basically, if you are conciensious (not sure of the spelling there!!) that's your nature and you will never change that.

How would you feel if your boss demanded that you donate £4,000 to the company? Chances are that he or she would be more likely to get a mouthful of abuse than the suggested funds. But if you work unpaid overtime regularly you have probably already given substantially more than this sum to your employer.

In fact the average employee donates £4,955 of his or her time free of charge. So isn’t it about time we started getting serious about contract hours?

Ian Tasker of the TUC says: “Overtime is an issue that relates in particular to women staff, because they are more likely to be the ones who need to leave early for childcare arrangements. It means that they feel the pressure of others working later more keenly, and their career may suffer in comparison to those who voluntarily work later.

“Not only are employees giving employers their time free of charge but they’re also massaging the actual needs of the company in relation to how many bodies are required to carry out the job. “If 20 employees work an hour each overtime a week then that adds up to a part-time job. If they work two hours each a week, it’s a full-time one.”

While it is traditional for PAs and secretaries to set their hours around their employer’s commitments, there is no reason why extra help shouldn’t be paid for in an extra staff member, rather than given free by an existing one.

The TUC suggests that all staff take part in Work Your Proper Hours Day on Friday, to help to get the message to employers just how much they depend on free hours given in goodwill. But while employees may be gearing up to leave on time on Friday, there may be some staff who would rather stay late.

“The danger with being strict about sticking to your contract hours is that employers might start applying the exact letter of the law, and insist that every minute you spend at work is productive,” says Peter Russian, of Investors in People. The best relationship to have is an adult one where trust is extended. For most employers this means that they’re aware that people will spend time at work chatting about things that don’t relate to productivity.

“But they trust that if necessary the employee would stay a bit late to make up the time and get the job done.” Of course many PAs and secretaries do enjoy this kind of symbiotic relationship. But there are also employers who choose to work late themselves, without considering the impact this will have on those who organise their lives behind the scenes. If your boss is the latter, then it might make more sense to speak up now, rather than hope for a backdated cheque for all that unpaid overtime.

Well done Mrs M Hodges :thumbsup:
#17
Good on her..not many people around like her :)
#18
We never think of those who have to sort out the mess when a disater happens. I guess there as much victims as the ones directly hit. Tell your missus what she does is appreciated and that she's a hero as she's rescuing the people and putting herself before others.

A true hero.:thumbsup:
