FITREC’s decision to move away from CEC accumulation (for good reason) has been very well received by health and fitness professionals. Unfortunately, some employers have assumed that without CECs, FITREC is unable to satisfy their need to ensure professional development of staff is taking place.

I’m very pleased to present another guest post by Alex Martin of Taurus Legal Management (his previous article was on ‘The Basics of Restraint of Trade‘). In this post, Alex clarifies the new rights available to fitness casuals as well as each employer’s requirement to notify them of these rights.
