Company Casebook: Peer-to-peer car rental business Turo
Have you ever thought about the speed with which cars depreciate in value and how little they're used for a major asset? If so, you'll immediately see the logic behind the latest sharing economy business model which has just arrived in Britain. It's a peer-to-peer car rental business called Turo - car owners rent out their cars to travellers, with Turo taking a percentage of the proceeds. Their CEO and some of his top team spoke to Share Radio's Linda Lewis on Company Casebook this week, explaining why they've chosen the UK as their first big expansion after North America and more.

Former racing driver Amanda Stretton explains why men pay more for car insurance
New research has shown that men are now paying - on average - one hundred pounds MORE than women for their car insurance. That's according to a survey by confused.com, which is compiled and published every quarter and gives a snapshot of what the insurance industry is doing. The index has also shown that premiums across the board have increased as insurance companies become more and more expert at gathering data about our driving habits. Earlier on, Share Radio reporter spoke to Amanda Stretton, former racing driver and now motoring editor about the survey's results in more detail.

Employment solicitor Kevin Charles advises on diffusing your work stress
Stress- we all suffer from it- but is workplace stress considered a disability, and therefore protected under the Equality Act? The recent case of Herry against Dudley Metropolitan Council reinforces the principle that stress alone is unlikely to constitute a disability, without something more. To unpick it all Georgie Frost was joined by Kevin Charles from Crossland Employment Solicitors.
