If you are considering employing people in your business how available and clear is the information regarding what you need to do first? In dealing with SME’s over the past number of years I am coming to realise the many company owners/managers are not aware of the legal requirements for hiring employees.
In many cases the issue is time, both in relation to the speed at which employees are hired into organisations and the time that it takes for a manager to research and get up to speed on what the requirements are.
That being said I cannot emphasise enough how important it is to get this stage right. Start as you mean to go on and make sure you have all the statutory requirements including Contract of Employments that adhere to Employment Law.
