A new online toolkit has been
launched by the Department of
Business, Innovation and Skills
which provides first-time
employers with a step-by-step
guide through their obligations
when taking on a member of staff.
The ‘Taking on an Employee’
toolkit, which can be found at
takes employers through the
process of hiring their first
member of staff and explains
the core legal obligations when
doing so. If you are thinking of
taking on a member of staff (or
even if you have already
employed someone), it is
definitely worth a look to check
you have everything in place.
Your Independent Living
Adviser will also be able to give
you advice and guidance on
these issues.
