Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
I am launching a cleaning business in the UK.
I would like to effectively subcontract the cleaning staff - basically I will sell the services, then assign/offer the work to the cleaners to go and deliver the service.
I cannot (at this stage) pay to have full time staff, as in the early stages I expect the pipeline of work to be limited. What are my options here?
If I were to send jobs to cleaners under a sub-contracting arrangement, what are the implications on my business and how it is run? e.g. would the cleaners be able to send others on their behalf (as they are self-employed) if they cannot make a job.
I will be providing exclusively domestic services. Ideally I would like the staff to where a branded t-shirt and provide the cleaning materials also (their pay will be extremely competitive with plenty of buffer to provide the cleaning products)
Hello, my name is Ben and it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. What specific concerns do you have about this arrangement?
I would like to understand how I can subcontract the staff on a regular basis. E.g. the jobs could be every day, so I need to have an arrangement where I am sending work to the staff regularly. I would like to know whether this is legal and if so what the contract should say. My other questions and concerns were stated in the original question but I can elaborate if required. Basically I want to ensure that I when I start selling work that I am operating within the UK law.
Hi, this is quite a complex are especially if you need wording in a contract and certainly not going to be covered by the current value you have selected for the question which is the lowest available. For example I can provide a self employed contract which you can amend and use as necessary but I will have to send a report for the question value to be amended, you should get that shortly
Hey Ben, ah I appreciate that this is complex and am happy to take your steer - wasn't sure how the payment system worked! Seemed a bit arbitrary what was a low or high detail question?! Anticipating your response.
Hi, not sure what you see as an option on deciding whether it is a high or low detail question but this would be high detail so once the payment has been adjusted to reflect that I will b happy to assist, thank you
Hi Ben - when I logged in yesterday it asked for an additional payment of $15 and this was made 24 hours ago - has it not come through to you?
Hi, no I am afraid the value is still the same, you may wish to contact [email protected] to query that, or you could ask for this question to be closed and then just open a new one for my attention with the new value. Thnaks
