Sector champion for the employment law theme of the Red Tape Challenge, Steve Sharratt said:
“This is the first step in a whole new online service for small businesses, which is based upon the requirement to make life easier for business. It’s simple really, if compliance is made easier, we can focus more on growing our businesses and then everyone wins.”
In addition, a mythbusters document has been published alongside the online toolkit for first-time employers which aims to address some common misconceptions about hiring a member of staff. This document includes helpful advice on registering with HMRC, anti-discrimination laws, dismissal rules, setting up payrolls and probation periods. Also available from the site will be information about Government support, financial and otherwise, to encourage employers to take on their first employee.
This year the Government is running the Business in You campaign to encourage more people to start or grow their business throughout 2012 using a range of existing support services. More information is available here.
