CONSUMING ISSUES: High Heels dress code at work. Time to update employment law? Listen to Beverly Sunderland

Temp agency Portico says it's now changed its rules after Nicola Thorp complained. She says it's wrong that companies tell female employees which shoes to wear.

CONSUMING ISSUES: Why is your credit rating important? Listen to Lisa Hardstaff and Joel Davis from EQUIFAX
Are you looking to get a mortgage, a loan, even a new mobile contract? How much does a credit report matter? And what are the things that could impact it? Your credit rating can affect your ability to borrow money using products such as credit cards, loans and mortgages. If your credit rating isn’t in the best shape there are things you can do to build it up again and fix any problems. Popular myths include that the credit behaviour of anyone living at the same address could affect your credit score rating and that old debts don't count. Georgie Speaks to Lisa Hardstaff and Joel Davis from EQUIFAX

Crowdfunders: Lending Club CEO exits, equity crowdfunding with ET Index & a new funding for Lendinvest
This is 'Crowdfunders', the show that covers the fast-growing world of alternative finance and we've got a very busy show for you today. The big news this week is over the pond in the US. The CEO of one of the big peer-to-peer sites in the US, Lending Club, has left the company under a cloud. Apparently one investor was buying loans on the platform that were riskier than he realised. Some commentators argue that this story is a major blow to the alternative finance industry. We'll find out more. We'll also be looking at a equity crowdfunding campaign for a company called ET Index - it provides information on companies' carbon emissions for investors. And we'll also find out about a big new source of funding for the peer-to-peer site, Lendinvest. Beginning with the Lending Club story, Ed Bowsher begins by talking to Ryan Weeks from the Altfi website.
