Small businesses will welcome a new range of recently published Acas guides designed specifically for them.
Acas has published a new range of eight step-by-step employment guides specifically for small businesses. The guides are freely available and help businesses to hire, manage and get the best from their staff, and are designed to be ‘practical, concise [and] easy to understand’.
They cover recruiting, settling in, managing complaints and absences, getting the best out of staff, handling pay and wages, and small-scale redundancies. There is also a guide on managing discipline.
