An APHC plumbing and heating seminar

The Association of Plumbing & Heating Contractors (APHC) is working with Fernox and Croner to host six free regional seminars designed to update plumbing and heating engineers on the Each Home Counts Review and provide insight into how businesses can protect themselves from potential boiler warranty claims and employment status claims from contractors.

Fernox will be speaking about how heating engineers can protect themselves from potential future claims should a breakdown occur during the warranty period of a boiler.

Croner, who operate APHC’s business and legal advice line which is included as part of membership for APHC members, is going to provide insight into how the abolition of tribunal fees is seeing a 120% increase in employment claims and what plumbing and heating companies can do to protect themselves from employment status claims from contractors.
