Re: Heads we win, tails you lose

If I hired a contractor to install new LED light fittings in the office:

  • Yes, they might have to work at specific times, could be when the office is open, could be when the office is not open.
  • Obviously they would have to work in the location where the lights are to be fitted
  • Of course they have to comply with health and safety requirements and all that stuff
  • And yes we would get rid of them if they are no use

However, it would be perfectly normal for them to bring multiple members of staff to the job, and we would not get involved in their selection process.
