Redundancy = Franchise, Start-up or Existing business?

Wednesday, July 15, 2009

Paul and I were interviewed by Gill South of The NZ Herald a couple of months ago and she published a piece regarding redundancies/ex-pats buying businesses rather than seeking employment, (seen here: Gill South Article NZ Herald) and I thought it might be a good idea to expand on that article a bit. I quoted statistics in last week’s blog that over 50% of companies have let staff go in the previous 3 months or will in the next 3 months. Are people that are being made redundant receiving redundancy payments? A very real question in our current climate. Most redundancy clauses in employment contracts that I have seen state that in the event of a redundancy there will be no payment, but it seems there are payments in the higher echelons of larger companies. I remember in a previous life when I sold only franchises that the Police “perfing” was all the rage.  Read More...

Hello again, a new week is here again and I have to think of something to say. Have had enough of talking about Business brokers, brokerages and the REINZ and am keen to move back to more positive thoughts. It has been a bit hard to stay positive though, because we have a disagreement in principle with our former employers. It is interesting to see when times get tough how righteous some people become when money is involved. Even over a little bit of money. Have to say we are glad to be out on our own.  Read More...

Hope this post finds you well; you are inside out of the elements. It has been cold in Auckland, I am sure I read somewhere that we have a sub-tropical climate now. Could have fooled me, less rain is good though!  Read More...
