I have offered a job to a candidate following a successful interview. However, I have received less than glowing references about them and I no longer have any confidence in this person working for me. I wish to withdraw the job offer. Can I do this?
We have decided that a number of employees need to be on call to respond to emergencies outside of normal hours. These employees are arguing that the on-call periods should be treated as work time under the Working Time Regulations and therefore health and safety legislative requirements would apply. Is this the case?
