Are you paying your workers in accordance with the law?

Any of you who have attended our seminars will know that we are an advocate of the ACAS service that provides advice and information for both employers and employees on workplace issues.

So we wanted to make you aware that ACAS has now issued a guide for small employers which covers the basics of employment law on staff pay. ACAS states that the new guide ‘Help for small firms: Handling pay and wages’ can “help small and medium sized businesses stay on the right side of the law and ensure pay issues are handled correctly.”

It covers matters such as:

Paying new staff
Different types of pay systems
Wage Slips
What to do during staff absences
Wage deductions
Ending employment and paying notice

The guide has broken down the topics into a series of practical steps and is a useful reference point for managers and those dealing with pay.
