My employer took me on with a fixed term, 6 month contract. They do not pay another company who then pays me, I am a salaried employee. My colleagues, who are all permanent employees, have been sent for training, while I have not. In addition I have been ejected from a meeting and been excluded from others, I do not receive the department update emails and I am not invited to lunch time buffets by management which my colleagues are. I am working the same job as my colleagues, my contract states that I am in the same department and the HR system also shows this, even the intranet does... but when I ask why I am being treated this way I am told it is because I am not in this department and another department has paid for me on their budget. yet I do exactly the same job as my colleagues, have the same duties and have never met anyone in this other department, nor does my contract even mention them. Am I being discriminated against because I am on a fixed term contract?2 AnswersLaw & Legal7 years ago
Does anybody have a rough idea how expensive reroofing a 17th century cottage might be? The roof is sagging and so beams would have to be replaced. I realise this is a very rough, hard to answer question and I'm only after a guide to determine if the asking price of a house, plus the cost of reroofing, is affordable.5 AnswersMaintenance & Repairs8 years ago
I wonder what the cost of charging a mobile phone is every day. I have a Nokia N95 which has a 700mah battery and needs to be charged every night. I wonder how much electricity this uses and how much this might cost on my bill. I am in the UK and on a standard electrical tariff, so some averaging would likely need to be done to work this out.2 AnswersCell Phones & Plans9 years ago
