No political statement was intended when Peter Cooke, head of employment at City firm Theodore Goddard, presented guest of honour Cherie Booth QC with a bouquet of red Gerberas, not roses.
The occasion was the launch of a book and CD-Rom, Negotiating Employment Agreements, written by Cooke with colleague Felicity Gemson.
Cooke said the book aimed to give practical guidance to help businesses avoid costly mistakes when employing people, adding it was a "starting point for those charged with converting hastily prepared letters of appointment into agreements".
Booth, who wrote the foreword to the guide, said most of the recent changes in employment protection had come from Europe rather than Westminster, "a statement of fact, rather than a political one".
