|Payslips & Contract|
As the employer you must provide your employee with a payslip every time they are paid. The payslip must show the gross wage, the Tax and NI deductions made on their behalf, as well as the net wage. Your employee should keep all their payslips in a safe place, as these will act as proof of earnings when applying for a loan or a mortgage.
When you subscribe to Enable Payroll we will provide you with payslips for your carer, either monthly or weekly, showing all correct deductions.
The document should include all terms and conditions that you have agreed upon, including the start date, hours of work, starting salary (which should specify gross or net), holiday entitlement etc. It should also include your agreement to operate PAYE on your employee’s behalf. The contract might also include a detailed description of their duties, house rules and disciplinary procedures and any other benefits to which you may make available to your carer (e.g. use of a car or re-imbursement of motoring costs if they were to use their own vehicle for work).
The contract of employment is a legally binding agreement and obliges both of you keep to the terms of employment spelled out in it. These terms can of course be changed at any time by mutual agreement.
A standard form of contract is available from Enable Payroll when you subscribe to our services, and it can be modified to fit the circumstances specific to your particular requirements. If you need help with making changes to the contract don't forget to contact our legal support team, who will be only too happy to help.
