If you have made the decision to have a CCTV system installed and are just about to contract a CCTV installation company to do the job, you have come to the right place. The next step would be to figure out what type of CCTV system would be most suitable for you. Here are a few tips/guidelines to get you started:

First off, you need to assess how large the area of surveillance is. This will determine what type of CCTV cameras you should have installed and how many cameras are ideal in order to cover the space that you wish to survey.

Secondly, you will also have to make a choice between fixed or moving cameras. In this regard, it may be best to consult with a CCTV installation company as they are professionals and thus they will be able to provide you with professional advice. There are fixed cameras and pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) cameras. PTZ cameras give you the option of focusing on a subject.

One of the benefits of technological advancements is that now, it is possible to integrate CCTV use with other security systems. For instance, integration with an intruder alarm can be set up for a more enhanced security measure. What happens in this scenario is that when your alarm system is activated, your CCTV system automatically begins recording images at a higher resolution. For more information or assistance, consult with a CCTV installation company. They can provide you with the full 411 in order to maximize your CCTV system.

If you are on a budget, this is not a problem. This is why there is a wide range of cameras available that you can choose from so that you can both meet your needs as well as stay within your allotted budget. Again, it will be helpful to hire professionals to assist you.


Settlement Agreements

A settlement agreement is a legally binding contract between an employer and employee which settles claims that the employee may have against their employer.

Settlement agreements are typically given to employees if they are being made redundant or are given money in return for certain conditions, such as not bringing a claim against their employer. Ideally, problems get resolved through talking or formal procedures but when an agreement still cannot be reached a settlement agreement can be used to end the relationship between employer and employee. They can also be used to settle disputes mid-contract.

Many settlement agreements may also include a reference for the employee, a reference could help the employee find a new job faster, reducing the stress and financial impact of their departure from a company.

An employer should give an employee enough time to consider a settlement agreement, usually a minimum of ten calendar days. An employer should be clear about the reasons behind the proposal and be prepared to meet and answer any questions from the employee. An employer should be sensitive about issues discussed with the employee with the main aim of reaching a mutual agreement.

When deciding on how much money to offer for a settlement agreement an employer should consider the potential cost of resolving the issue without a settlement agreement.

The tax rules on a settlement agreement are complex and should be checked by an accountant or financial advisor, generally, compensation paid under a settlement agreement can often be made free of tax and national insurance up to the value of £30,000.
