For service industries such as the independent health and social care sector, staffing costs can be as much as 70% of the running costs of a business.

Our employment law and HR team will advise you on creative ways of using staff in order to try and reduce costs as much as possible and to make sure you and your customers receive best value. For example, by offering advice on seeking volunteers, using fixed term and casual workers, taking on apprentices, engaging staff through an agency or appointing consultants on a self-employed basis.

We are available to advise you on all types of atypical working, including:

  • When is a worker an employee?
  • The rights of agency workers’ under the Agency Workers Regulations 2010.
  • Your responsibilities for apprentices and volunteers.

Treatment of fixed-term workers and the limitations on successive rolling contracts.
